I'll admit it: I'm a horrible pray-er.

Not because I can't find the words to say...that's usually not a problem. But because I just don't. I don't pray - not nearly enough to consider myself a pray-er. And that is just not acceptable because God calls me to pray, to be in communion with Him.

Song Bonus!

I know I just posted a song yesterday, but something came to mind last night (or early this morning?) and I just had to share it with the blog world.

Never ever doubt the power of an encouraging word! The following song excerpt is a shout-out to a friend who just happened to give encouragement exactly when encouragement was needed.

Isn't God awesome? YES!

This is an oldie, but goodie!

Dare I go where I can't see
And if I do will You go with me
Maybe it's time that I just learn to believe

That I may never be a millionaire
Funny I don't think I care
May never see the mountain view
I guess I don't need to
I may never drive a fancy car
Or be a movie star
But I'll be, I'll be, the light of the world

This song is not only really meaningful, but it has a great beat!

Thanks again, friend, for your encouraging words (and for singing this song in your great, upbeat voice!). : )

My fourth verse for the Siesta Scripture Memory Team is:

"Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ,
and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh."
Romans 13:14

Songs of My Life

Recently, I've been thinking about how much certain songs really speak to me and my circumstances in life. Of course, "It is Well" has become a grounding reminder of God's grace in the midst of any situation in my life.

This past weekend, I attended WinterJam (AMAZING show!) and afterwards, I bought Kutless' CD, "It is Well." I bought it because I loved their rendition of my favorite hymn, and because it was only $5! Score!

Saturday I received a package from home. I had a feeling about what it was, and I was right. I couldn't bring myself to look at the scrapbook right away. I knew that a lot of love and time was spent on it and I wanted to give it my utmost attention. I avoided it Sunday and Monday, too...my heart just wasn't ready.

But today, I was overwhelmed by a longing for children I don't have. And I decided it was time to revisit some of those tough memories that I often keep at a distance.

Simple Obedience

I easily get caught up in the thought processes of "What am I going to do with my life, now?" And it seems like that's all I ask of God lately. Give me guidance for the future, Lord. Show me your plan, Father. What is my purpose?

While it's not necessarily a bad thing to ask those questions, I feel like God's been speaking to me about the DAILY plan.

The simple obedience of doing what God tells me to do in His Word.

Hi all! Here's my 3rd scripture for the Siesta Scripture Memory Team:

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." ~Ephesians 6:12

And here's my attempt at the first two verses from memory:

1. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. ~Psalm 51:10
2. Nevertheless, each person should live as a believer in whatever situation the Lord has assigned them, just as God has called them. ~1 Corinthians 7:17

Praise God for His Word!!

I've decided to focus on verses that help me combat the devil and temptations/trials in my life.
