A Praising Heart

There’s no room for self-pity in a praising heart,
Even if life didn’t give you, a real good start.
In Christ, heartaches are conquered from your dark past.
Let them go and receive true deliverance, at long last!

I have found the secret, so when you’re feeling down,
Praise and glorify God’s name, and hope will abound.
I have learned from experience, as you will also see,
Praising God in the hard times sets your spirit free!

Praise Him early morning, as soon as you awake,
You will find your day, much easier will make.
Praise Him as you go about all your daily chores,
Praise Him as you’re mopping those kid-dirty floors.

With songs of thanksgiving present in your heart
There is no room for self-pity, not even in part.
Praise Him afternoons, when your workday’s done.
For helping you accomplish all that you begun.

Praise Him in the evening for the beauty of the night,
For stars and moon that give us His illuminating light.
Praise Him for the blessings He’s given you today
As you begin to count them, you will be amazed!

A praising heart will give you a countenance new,
Self-pity had succeeded in only making you blue.
A praising heart is pleasing to the Father up above,
To acknowledge that it’s Him we love,
Because He first loved us ………












If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I love your poem. I agree that praise does lift the heart and change our countenance (that's why praise 'looks good' on the christian). I do have a small observation, though. I think the poem could do with a little fine-tuning to the ending. To drop a hint, how about: "A praising heart is pleasing to the Father up above" "Because its the greatest appreciation we can show for His Love". It is indeed a beautiful poem. I admire your skill. - Femi Onabanjo
