On our knees in praise!

Yesterday I was preparing supper and listening to my Ipod. The song came on "Your Great Name" by Natalie Grant. I was in the middle of making Italian chicken, spinach and rice when the song started. It is a powerful song. As I was singing and working, I looked over at Karsyn. She was doing this:


 She was singing a few of the words to the song that she knew over and over. "all the world will praise Your great name, Your great name...Redeemer, Healer, You are Mighty!".Her little hands were up in the air and she was looking up at the sky and closing her eyes.

Have you ever had a moment when you have been caught off guard with the wonder of who our God really is? When all you can do is drop to your knees in praise and fall on your face in gratefulness?

At that moment, it was all I could do to drop everything else and praise God for Who He is. For being my Healer, my Redeemer, my Mighty God. Although Karsyn didn't understand what in the world I was doing, she would mimic whatever I did. If I knelt down, she did too. If I raised my hands, hers were also. I was moved to tears, definitely in the presence of the Lord right there in the middle of my kitchen floor.

We shared such a sweet moment together yesterday. I hope that each of you have moments such as this, where you stop and praise the One who is worthy.
Here are the words to the song and a link to the video:


[Verse 1:]
Lost are saved; find their way; at the sound of Your great name
All condemned; feel no shame, at the sound of Your great name
Every fear; has no place; at the sound of Your great name
The enemy; he has to leave; at the sound of Your great name

[Chorus:]
Jesus, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain for us, Son of God and Man
You are high and lifted up; and all the world will praise Your great name

[Verse 2:]
All the weak; find their strength; at the sound of Your great name
Hungry souls; receive grace; at the sound of Your great name
The fatherless; they find their rest; at the sound of Your great name
Sick are healed; and the dead are raised; at the sound of Your great name

[Chorus:]
Jesus, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain for us, Son of God and Man
You are high and lifted up; and all the world will praise Your great name

[Bridge:]
Redeemer, My Healer, Lord Almighty
My savior, Defender, You are My King

[Chorus:]
Jesus, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain for us, Son of God and Man
You are high and lifted up; and all the world will praise Your great name
