I love the feeling when –
Every part of me feels God’s presence,
Where I know in my gut,
That God hasn’t held back love,
I can feel his praise breaking out into life,
An unabashed expression of hope in me.
My dear enemy tried to gloat,
He spewed out his barbed words,
I was treated like a nobody,
Worthless to any of his plans,
Friendship discarded in an instant,
Trod over in his effort for selfish gains.
Of course I am not faultless,
Forgiveness was my daily plea to God,
I counted up a mountain of my failures,
God’s heart was forgetful of my sins,
But remembering always to love,
He took me from daily hate to constant kindness,
I am centred in his love forever.
Everywhere I go now there is praise,
Praise from the heavens,
Praise from my loyal friends,
Praise from deep within me,
Praise that will never stop.
