Distractions

I spend a lot of my time feeling distracted. Being a creative person- there’s always some song I am compelled to play on the piano, or an amazing sunset I want to take a picture of… or I am inspired to read my Bible, or write.   All of these things require my undivided attention, […]

this only do I seek

It might sound a little strange, but I think a lot about heaven and what it will be like. I can’t even wrap my mind around it, but I know the joy I experience when I spend time in His presence… and to experience joy like that for eternity- well, that’s going to be nothing short of AMAZING!! But you know what else I’ve been thinking about? How desperately I want EVERYONE I know to experience that same joy.

in sickness and in health

I woke up this past Sunday and I didn’t have much of a voice. But after leading worship for over 9 years now, I have learned to let go of any anxious thoughts about my own “performance”, and watch Him work! As I prayed that morning, I heard Him impress these thoughts on my heart- […]

I have always loved hymns, and in particular, learning the stories behind how they were written.  The story behind I Have Decided to Follow Jesus is one that I found particularly moving… “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus” is a Christian hymn originating from India. The lyrics are based on the last words of a man […]

Hungry

You, Lord, are all I want!     You are my choice,     and you keep me safe.  You make my life pleasant,     and my future is bright. Psalm 16:5-6 (CEV) If you’re anything like me, when I start making good “diet” choices, those are the things that I begin to crave.  Like drinking water- that’s not really […]

He holds the sky

He formed the clouds within His hand  He holds the sky and sea  The very hand that holds the world- it cradles you and me  And when the distant storm clouds bring  the threat of thunder and rain In the shelter of His mighty wings we can find peace  once again  He who dwells in […]

Jesus Our Lord is Crucified

Jesus Our Lord is Crucified O come and mourn with me awhile,  O come ye to the Savior’s side  O come, together let us mourn,  Jesus our Lord is crucified. Seven times He spoke seven words of love;  And all three hours His silence cried  For mercy on the souls of men;  Jesus our Lord […]
