When God Inspires a Child to Raise Her Hands in Worship

When God Inspires a Child to Raise Her Hands in Worship

The other night the most amazing thing happened.  I'm still in awe of it.

My husband and I usually put our daughters to bed at the same time.  He puts one to bed.  I put the other to bed.  Each night we alternate.

This particular night, he was out of town for work.  I had to put the girls to bed on my own and decided we would have a group bedtime routine rather than individual.

Normally I would read their individual devotions to them, but since they're three years apart in age and their devotions are very age specific, I decided to skip the reading and do something a little bit different.

I grabbed the iPad and we snuggled up together.  I pulled up YouTube and typed in a search phrase "Christian Kids" not really sure what would come up, if anything.   Immediately my oldest daughter tapped on the following video:

Because of all the kids in the video, both of my daughters were completely captivated by it.  My youngest can't read very well yet, so she ...

Amazing Grace

 

 

Today is Valentine's Day.  A day of love.  Just like you, I'm very blessed to have a loving husband and beautiful children who complete my world and make it all worth living.  I love them so much!  But there is another love that truly is my reason for everything.  The unending love of Christ and the beautifully deepened relationship I feel when I'm spending quiet time with Him for prayer and worship.

Please join me as I link up with my sweet friend, Paula Ebert of Grow Where You're Planted for her weekly Tune-In Tuesday's musical inspiration.  This is a very popular song not really needing much explanation as to why I chose it for this week's post.  I hope you'll take a moment to click the Play button and sing your hearts praise to God for His amazing grace.

If you're reading this post from the RSS Feed, you'll need to visit my website to watch and listen to the video.

Blessings to you, dear friend!  Oh...and Happy Valentine's Day!

Walk On The Water

 

 

My song for today is Walk On The Water by Britt Nicole.  The video here isn't the song in its entirety.  You'll only hear parts of it in the background as Britt herself explains the meaning behind this song.  She is so inspiring and her words speak truth.  Watch the video and then continue reading on.

What are you waiting for?  What do you have to lose?  Both, such powerful questions in my life lately.  It's so easy to let fear paralyze us from making forward progress on our goals.  We think playing it safe or running away is the better, more secure choice.

God doesn't want us to live in fear though.  He wants us to know that if He has called us to a particular task or job, we can trust Him to not only equip us with the ability to succeed, but to handle all the details we tend to fret about.

This week, through this song, God is reminding me to surrender my fear to Him and take another step forward in faith.
