little to give lots to gain
I find that when I'm worshipping and my life is going well, it is easy to sing and praise God with what seems like everything I am, but when I'm broken and hurting the most and have almost nothing left to hang on to, it's more difficult. I believe that this falls back on surrendering all control to Christ. This morning it was so hard for me to sing such simple but loaded words... 'we're all about you and world you promised and all we have we give you praise.' This morning I knew exactly what I had left, and when I decided to sing those lyrics on the third time through, I began to break down emotionally. I broke down because I meant what I was singing. I believe that in the moments that we are the weakest and most heavy-laden, and are able to lay our burdens fully at the feet of Jesus, we have the world to gain. It is in these times that you know God is working on you... And He is faithful.
