Sorry for not updating, but I have not had time for xanga lately. Plus, I wanted to leave the engagement story up long enough for everyone to read it. Anyhow, last week I was working the Kid’s Camp for my church. Amaizing time!!! During the camp, two of the boys in my cabin were called into ministry, one of them into missions! God really showed up in the lives of the kids at our camp.
Well, here is a serious note for my post today. I was listening to the song Blessed Be Your Name, the other day, and it finally hit me what the song is about. The song is about worshiping God no matter what you are going through in your life. I will never for when this concept really hit me (though through a different song). I was intering in Modest, CA and was just returning for my second year, and I was told what my living sitution was going to be. Needless to say it was not a good situation. I left the church to go to my host home utterly frustrated, and I jumped into Roberta’s car and turned the CD player on. The song that came on the radio was Here I am to Worship. At that moment I realized that even though the situation sucked (if I took the time to explain it you would understand how much it sucked), God had put me there for a reason, and if worshiping the Lord is the only way that I will make it through, than Here I am to Worship.
Blessed Be Your Name by Tree63:
Blessed be Your name in the land that is plentiful
Every blessing You pour out I’ll turn back to praise
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name when the sun’s shining down on me
You give and take away
Whether you are in the desert, life is all as it shoud be, or the streams of abundance flow, remember that God is in controll. Bless God through any and all circumstances, and He will bless you as well.
Take care and may God’s blessings rain down on your life
