Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Something Holy

I heard this song on the radio this week and loved it. So many people are searching for something to complete them. What we don't realize is we were created with a space inside that only God can fill. I pray I allow Him to fill me completely! I want to be part of something holy.

Sweet Blessings,

Then Sings My Soul Saturday - My Own Little World

So sorry I'm late posting today. We had terrible lightning storms for hours last night so the computers and televisions were out. Still raining this morning, but at least the lightning has stopped for now.

I recently had a conversation with a girlfriend about how easy it is for us to get wrapped up in our own little world and not even recognize what is going on around us. Then, I heard this song and it was like God was speaking directly to my heart. Sometimes, I get so caught up in my own list of what I have to get done that day for my house, or my kids or their school, or my husband, that I don't take time to stop and ask what God wants me to do. It's hard because the outside world's problems seem so insurmountable sometimes. But, I'm praying for God to gently remind me each morning and let me see though His eyes. It's a little scary... but cool.
What's your world like?

Have a blessed weekend!

Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Unredeemed

I was looking for a song to post tonight and my friend Janet suggested this one. I had not heard it before tonight, but I think it's one of the most powerful songs I've heard in a while.
Listen carefully to the words.
My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you— I, whom you have redeemed. Psalm 71:23
You came near when I called you, and you said, "Do not fear."
O Lord, you took up my case; you redeemed my life. Lamentations 3:57-58

Have a blessed weekend!

Praying in Faith

I'm over at Five Minutes for Faith today with another post on prayer.
Do you see a theme emerging?

One of my recent Bible readings was Acts 12. In this chapter, Herod has put Peter in prison. Now Herod was arresting those who belonged to the church and had put James, the brother of John to death already, so it wasn’t looking good for Peter. The church was “earnestly praying” to God on Peter’s behalf.
