Sunday Morning Praise

Blessed Be The Name
Blessed be the name!  Blessed be the name!
Blessed be the name of the Lord!
Blessed be the name! Blessed be the name!
Blessed be the name of the Lord!
~Ralph E. Hudson

Heard a very powerful message about suffering this Sunday morning.  Job's response to one earth shattering personal disaster to another and then another was to turn, worship and say, "Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord." ~Job 1:21  What an example for me.  I am humbled, knowing that I react much worse to much less.

I like 'Blessed be Your Name' by Matt Redman - the lyrics are profound. 'He gives and takes away' but you still praise his name... check it on the net: www.lyricsbox.com/matt-redman-lyrics-blessed-be-your-name-pfs45jc.html
God bless.
