Hanging On Every Word That You Say

A couple of days ago I put some praise and worship on from youtube, and the clips kept changing and I just let them play.

But then this song came on.  I didn’t have time to listen to the words at the time, but I felt the presence of God come into my kitchen as I just let it play over and over again.  Finally I have taken the time to listen and even read these lyrics.  They are so powerful, I want to highlight them today for you.  Here’s the clip, followed by the lyrics.  Read them as you listen if you can.

Through Laney’s Eyes

Through Laney’s Eyes
From notwithoutmymorningcoffee.com

Thursday morning, her eyes shown with love that only a little girl could have for her daddy from where Laney watched from the window.

Daddy’s home, Mommy, and it’s not even lunchtime!” Lane shouted.  Three years old and full of life, always smiling, always dancing, Laney loved her Daddy and waited daily for this moment.

Usually she would run at him before he even had a chance to shut the door.

But today even her three year old self could tell something wasn’t right.  Daddy’s gaze was down, not looking at her and smiling that special smile. Continue reading “Through Laney’s Eyes”

Is God ok With My Worry?

Other reading: 2 Timothy 1:7, 1 John 4, Romans 8, also Psalm 91 and 1 Corinthians 13

If you feel hopeless and worrisome today, this post is for you.  It’s filled with scripture to build up your faith.  The scriptures here are more important than anything I have to say so I hope you will really hear the words in each passage here.  I pray that by the time you are finished you will be filled with faith and encouragement to face whatever you are going through, with God by your side.  There are so many scriptures about this, God obviously wants to hear Him on it.

Philippians 4:6-9(NKJV)

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

One Day In August

Disclaimer: be prepared for sentiment sap and love.  If you can handle it, read on.

Five.  That’s how many years my husband and I celebrate this month.  Now, to those of you who are veterans of this thing called marriage, that might not seem like very long.  That’s okay, this is our moment though, so bare with us newlyweds (we can still be newlyweds at five years right?).

Praise

Psalm 71:8

My mouth is filled with Your praise
And with Your glory all day long.

A great book on this is The Purpose and Power of Praise and Worship by Myles Munroe.  This is a book I had to read when I was in Bible School.  Really good.

I haven’t yet posted in response to the daily prompts on wordpress… but today’s prompt is praise.  I happen to love “Praise”.  So even though I don’t have a lot of time right now, here’s a nugget for you.

Praise is about lifting up the name of Lord for all to hear.  Praise is not something that has to involve music, but it is fun when it does!  The Bible says in Luke 19:40 [paraphrased] that if we don’t praise Him, even the rocks will cry out.  The rocks will praise Him if we don’t!  He is worthy to be praised!  God is so good, I can’t help but praise Him and thank Him for who He is and How He loves us.
