I'm wondering what has happend to the chilly weather... where I live in Georgia it's actually up to 60 degrees (farenheit) today! That's not very cold. It's supposed to cool down this evening to the 40's so ... that will be more like usual December weather. Are we really half-way through December already? Wow. :)
This morning my parents and I were sitting in the living room and Daddy put on a song and we listened to it. It was "Your Love is Extravagant" by Darrel Evans... a very moving worship song. I closed my eyes and listened, amazed at how the words spoke to my heart. Sometimes I don't take the time every day to worship my wonderful Lord, and I was thinking... why don't I? What could possibly be more important than praising my God? Certainly not my chores, or crochet, or even (gasp!) blogging! Yet I do these things instead of sitting down to have some quiet time with my Savior. It doesn't make sense, does it?
God, I praise thee
You amaze me
Take my life
And let your light shine through.
Friend of sinners
Fill me up,
'Cause all I really want is more of you.
^ that is not the song we were playing this morning but those words just ran through my head. I think I actually have more worship songs memorized than Bible verses... and having the songs in my heart is good, but I know I need to spend some time washed in the water of the word and hide that in my heart. :)
I hope all of you are having a blessed day!
