Praising God Will Stop Misery
My life was getting a little miserable
I began to dwell on my plight
The places I had begun to see change
Suddenly were no longer working right
Not one area in my life was exempt
They were all causing problems for me
Things that had long been dealt with before
Were returning with a hardness I didn't want to see
I didn't understand why so much "affliction"
Was just "suddenly" consuming my day
It became so mentally exhausting
My mind couldn't stay focused to pray
I went before the Lord with my question
Why is this coming in so many ways?
I pondered on it seriously for an answer
Then in my mind appeard the word "Praise"
God said "You were not too thankful"
Or at least you didn't take the time to be
All I heard coming from your mouth
was "Why is this happening to me?"
I just want you to say "Thank You"
For some of the problems I caused to cease
Thankfulness goes a very long way
to make sure your day is filled with peace
I love to hear your songs of worship
I love to know your mouth is filled with praise
You keep it flowing reaching my ears
I promise to take care of your days
