Praise God?

Why do we praise God
surely He does not need it?
Do we praise to convince
ourselves of what we want
to believe but don’t quite yet?

History shows us that even
the most devout have at times
dark doubts filling them
with fears and what-ifs.
How can we ordinary people
ever hope to understand
the mysteries of life?

Some days I’m strong
content, secure
then I fall into
a pit of woe
where I wallow
for awhile
then climb out
with renewed strength.

I’ve learned to accept
these ups and downs
as part of life
learning what I can
as I go, living life
and all it brings
one step at a time
a walk to eternity.
