I took last week off to get my oldest daughter ready for college and then take her. I didn’t experience any great sadness as I was so excited for her. However, this week, as I am starting to miss her, I think it is finally setting in…our family is forever changed. Now that the school year is underway, I am back to subbing. I so … Continue reading Though You Slay Me….
Can’t believe it has been a week since I last posted. Last week just got away from me with all the substituting (test time), working at the gym, Emily’s softball schedule, and not to mention getting ready for prom and graduation. Nevertheless, I always feel regretful when I neglect my blog as it is my outlet. It allows me the time to step away and … Continue reading God is a God of Restoration
Today is supposed to be “Reblog Friday”, the day I share a post that just spoke to my heart. While I read many great posts, I could not find anything that spoke to where I found myself this week. Last Sunday night I watched the movie Ragamuffin, which is a movie based on the life of Christian singer/song writer Rich Mullins. To be honest, I … Continue reading A Glimpse of Rich Mullins
What a fitting way to end this series. I hope you have enjoyed the worship and His word. Next week things will get back to normal around here. Yes, it is Halloween, but it is just another day to praise the Lord for me. Let us worship and praise with open hearts and without abandon. Ephesins 3:20-21 (NKJ): 20 Now to Him who is able to do … Continue reading 31 Days of Worship:Day 31:Open Up the Heavens
Well, I’m glad I got things off my chest yesterday. I am even more glad that I was able to call out “Jesus.” The very moment I called, Jesus showed up and began to work everything out. First in my own heart, growing my desire to want to push forward and hold on to my faith. Then he began to work on the other stuff. I … Continue reading 31 Days of Worship: Day 25: Just Say Jesus
I honestly feel like I could have written the first of today’s worship songs, Holding Nothing Back by Ryan Stevenson. It’s like he took a page out of my very own book or took my thoughts right out of my head. For a few years I have been dealing with something. It’s a problem that takes a back burner every now and again, but doesn’t … Continue reading 31 Days of Worship: Day 24: When You Don’t Have The Strength To Fight
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 ESV But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, … Continue reading 31 Days of Worship and The Word: Day 23: Praise Him Even When Circumstances Say Otherwise
Today’s Worship Song: From the Inside Out by Hillsong This is by far one of my top favorite worship songs. I prefer the Focus’ version(my band), but this is a close second (hehe). A thousand times I fail…isn’t that the truth? Sometimes I feel I get it wrong more times than I get it right. And that is what Satan wants us to concentrate on, … Continue reading 31 Days of Worship and The Word: Day 22: From the Inside Out
The Worship Song of the Day: More of You by Colton Dixon. More of Jesus and less of me is definitely what I need right now. When I quit my job last month, I thought I would have more time with God. The truth is that I seem to have less time. CRAZY. Being at home I find myself distracted by all the things … Continue reading 31 Days of Worship and The Word: Day 21: More of YOU!
Today is the day of the Lord. The day we, as a church, have set aside for the Lord. Oh fellow Christians I urge you to hold true to this, maybe even harder than you ever had. Set aside your busy schedules, the kids’ games, the list of chores. Lay it all down today and spend time with your families and the Lord. Exodus 20:8-10 … Continue reading 31 Days of Worship: Day 19: The Lord’s Day
