‘I life my hands in total adoration(deep love and respect; worship and respect) unto you. You reign upon the throne for you are God and God alone. Because of you my cloudy days are gone and I can sing to you this song, I just want to say that I love you more than anything.’
I have always loved music mostly just because of the instrument. I mean I have sung songs and memorized many words to a lot of songs but the last two days have been much different.
I have actually taken the time to look at the lyrics of specific songs that have touched me in the last days and I have understood the words much differently and actually can relate to what Lamar is saying in the song.
Above I included the first verse of the song. Today I am going to share line by line of that verse with you and explain to you what it means to me and how I relate to the song in general. Hope you enjoy and take something from it.
‘I lift my hands in total adoration unto you’
I lift my hands in worship, love, and respect to you (God). That is what this means to me. When I give all of my worship to God the rest will follow. My dreams, hopes, and wishes, when in accordance with God’s plans, will come to past
‘You reign on the throne, for you are God and God alone’
God reigns over the entire world. There is nothing impossible for Him to do for me, you, or our families. God is God alone and the worship of people, places, and things become the worship of idols and are irrelevant (nonexistent) when trying to live in the presence of God.
‘Because of You my cloudy days are gone’
Because of the one and only God my cloudy days, my nightmares, my heartaches are gone, nonexistent. I can now live in peace, joy, and I can walk in love. We are all human and have to make a conscious effort not to allow things get the best of us and remember it is our responsibility as a Child of God to love our neighbor as He loves us.
‘I can sing to You this song, I just want to say that I love You more than anything’
Praises and thank you should always be given to God in good and bad situations. No matter what a situation looks like there is always something to be grateful for. The way I look at it is no matter what goes on in any given day God has a plan and has done something that deserves all the glory. My example would be ||I wake up with a headache and have to be at work in 15 minutes||. Although I have a headache that could ruin my entire day but instead I decide to take time to praise God for being able to wake that day and I have a job.
By no means am I saying that I am perfect and I do not have my mess ups because I am sure I do more than some, but I am saying even when there are times when I may complain I have to reevaluate myself and be grateful for what I do have and grateful that my situation isn’t any worse that it is and will get better.
Be Encouraged and Enjoy!
