Sometimes, my prayers get no deeper than the name "Jesus". The rest of my hear and soul are in enough confusion, guilt, emotion, grief, or doubt, that nothing comes past just saying His name. And you know, I think He's okay with that. Oh, Jesus...

So I'll stand, with arms high and heart abandon.
In awe of the One who made it all.
I'll stand, my soul Lord to You surrendered.
All I am is Yours.

Oh, Jesus.

Melodies for Him

One of the things in life that brings me joy is music. And if you know me in any way, that shouldn't surprise you. Rarely is there a moment when strains of a melody can't be heard around me. I'm either performing, practicing, listening, or singing.

Music is a very emotional experience. It heightens joy, it creates celebration, it express sorrow, it provides healing. It causes any emotion to go the next level of feeling.

But, music goes beyond just my enjoyment or emotion. I truly believe that when music is played in honour of the Lord, there is nothing quite as beautiful. When music that is played in praise to our King is one of the most precious forms of worship we can give Him.

Psalm 150
Praise the LORD...
Praise him with tambourine and dancing,
Praise him with the strings and flute,
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.
       Praise the LORD.

New Blogger

I've been thinking about starting a blog for a little while now. I'm not entirely convinced that I'll actually keep it up, but it is something I'm interested in. So, I thought I'd give it a try. God has been placing so much on my heart recently that I really want to get down on paper...or screen I guess. 

Recently I've become addicted to blogs. Certain people just seem to having a skill to express themselves. I love to read about them, their families, their children, their dreams, and everyday life. It doesn't have to be anything profound, but the joy or sorrows of life.

So here I am, ready to follow God's calling on what to write, even if it is just every day life. My up and down moments. This is more for me than anyone else. 

I pray that somehow Christ will give me grace to hear Him and know His love. He is the lover of my soul and without Him I am nothing.
