Five Minute Friday: Song

I am a music-lover. I'll bebop with the best of them, within reason, including oldies and yes, even country! What would we do without music? Truly, it is a gift from God. And for those of you who have witnessed my dance moves, I'm sure you'll agree to that as well...:)

Sometimes All the time, I need to be reminded of the crazy, wild, amazing things God is doing in the world - in this now and not yet kingdom. Of our amazing God and the bigness of Him, and the smallness of me.

Songs that draw me into the story of God do this for me. Songs that remind me of what the FATHER does, not what I do.

"I look out the window
the birds are composing
not a note is out of tune
or out of place

I walk to the meadow
and stare at the flowers
better dressed than any girl
on her wedding day

so why do I worry?
why do I freak out?
God knows what I need
You know what I need

Your love is

Your love is

Your love is strong...

Your love is

Your love is

Your love is..


(repeat..and repeat)

-Jon Foreman, "Your Love Is Strong"

Friends, my prayer for this weekend is that you will know, know-know that His love is strong. To hear it in the words and the in the song and in the song in your heart that He loves and He is strong. 'Cause you don't have to be. 'Cause I don't have to be.

Hear the song getting louder? Yep. When we are weak. He is strong.

"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." - Mathew 6:33

Linking up with Five Minute Friday: Song!
