Umbrella of Praise

When life hails down on you, when storms threaten to whip you off your feet and your feet are stuck in the miry clay, the best protection is to try to raise up a Praise Umbrella.

Praise slaps the enemy in his lying face.
Praise gives you a steady place to stand when all the world seems like sinking sand.

This past week, I came across this song and it helped to lift me out of my fears and doubts. Look over the lyrics, then listen to the video and let the words fill your spirit. It'll do your heart some good, I promise.

On Christ the Solid Rock

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust in the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus name.

On Christ the solid rock I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils his lovely face,
I rest on his unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
my anchor holds within the veil.

On Christ the solid rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

His oath, His covenant, His blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
when all around my soul gives way,
He is then all my hope and stay.

(be sure to turn off the music on the sidebar. The additional verse to this video is provided below. Hope it blesses you as much as it did me.)

This part realy touched my heart and strengthened my resolve that no matter what happens, I will stand.

When my world falls apart and light turns to dark
when the clouds gather round and the storms overwhelm
When my heart breaks in half and my strength cannot last
When I'm lost in this land and I can't see your plan

I will Stand! I will Stand on you, Jesus.

Heavenly Father, help me to stand when the earth shifts beneath my feet. Let me look to you and not my circumstances. Let me remember that you are good and you have only good instore for me. And when bad does come, you give me safe places to stand. Thank you, Father. Amen.

Be blessed,


  1. Amen! Another beautiful post, Jackie. Thank you, sweet friend.

  2. welcome Lisa. Thanks for visiting. I've been finding lately that if I'll remind myself to think of positive, praisworthy things that it's brightened my depressive moods. I've even gone so far as to set an appointment on my phone calendar so that when I look at it, I see the reminder asking, "Are you thinking of positive things today?" lol. It's working!
