Gotta Keep Singing

Ever have times in your life when you just want to crawl into a hole and 'wait it out'? There's a lot going on in my world right now that I can't really blog about, and a lot that I have blogged about. I am sad. I am at a loss as to what to do. Except this: I know that God is on the throne and I want to love Him so much that His glory is my first priority. I'm not there yet, but I'm going to keep singing through it.

Joining in with you as you keep singing. Oh how I want to love Him that much.

Side note - said a prayer during the song for you and yours. Please know that God keeps you and your family on my heart and in my prayers. {Hugs}

Praying for you and yours -- and harmonizing with you along the way.

I got a scripture this morning while I was praying for you-

Psalm 61
For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by stringed instruments.
O God, listen to my cry!
Hear my prayer!
From the ends of the earth,
I cry to you for help
when my heart is overwhelmed.
Lead me to the towering rock of safety,
for you are my safe refuge,
a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me.
Let me live forever in your sanctuary,
safe beneath the shelter of your wings!

I'm sorry for your pain right now, S4J.

Ps. 91:14-16

"Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me; and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."

1Cor5:7 We live by faith and not by sight.

Matt 11:28-30

"Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Prayed for you. xxxooogretchen

Um...in light of your sadness, I thought I'd cheer you up a little by saying that my microwave is clean now (she ducks away, hoping a plate doesn't come through the screen).

I love that we don't need specifics to pray. God knows your hurts and fears. He sees every tear. I'm praying for you, friend.

Beautiful song!

P.S. And yes, I frequently want to crawl into bed to 'wait it out.'

I'm so sorry you're sad and I am lifting you up in prayer, dear sister. But do you know what a blessing you are? Do you realize how God's glory shines in your life? Do you understand the inspiration and encouragement you give?
