Thank You Lord

I had a blog post all written out about blessings and thankfulness but felt instead like I should just post this song because really it is how I am feeling tonight.

Lord, I am so abundantly blessed. I am so sorry when I feel like I deserve something more, or forget to give you the praise for what I have in this life.  Everything I have comes from you

Every.Single.Thing.

How could I ever ask for more?  Thank you Jesus!

The Next Big Act On America's Got Talent???

 
Well, probably not, but it is definitely the latest thing the boys
 do for fun.  I wonder what the neighbors think when they
see flashing lights all over out of the living room windows!!! =)

The Right, Responsibility and Freedom

I have never heard so many people say that they are not voting in this election because they don't like either one of the candidates.  That their vote really wouldn't matter anyway.  Let me just remind you that 1) YOU have the right, responsibility and freedom as an American citizen to vote. 2) By not voting, you clearly are indeed voting and 3) While neither one of the candidates line up 100% with my Christian values either, that isn't going to stop me from voting for the one that lines up the most with them. There is one CLEAR choice

Oh great God, you are sovereign. You already know the outcome of tomorrow, that doesn't stop me from pleading for mercy for a Nation that has turned its back on you. May we stop and really think about WHO and WHAT we are voting for when we are silent before you in that voting booth tomorrow.  We have become a people of entitlement in America and we have only one hope for this great country~the Great I AM.

Thank you Lord for giving us the freedom to vote. Thank you for all the people past and present who have given of themselves, sometimes their lives for my freedoms that I take for granted.

For my children, for the sanctity of life, the sanctity of marriage, for those struggling to make ends meet in an economy that is no better off (actually worse) than it was 4 years ago I will be voting for that one clear choice.

This election is a turning point for our Nation~the power of one can make a difference~be a voice.  VOTE!!!!

Obedience

God spoke to me this morning about studying the word 'obey' during my devotions. This is the verse that spoke to me this morning:

Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice -
I Samuel 15:22

Then I log onto facebook and see in two of the newsfeeds of friends one right after another:

When you need a miracle in your life, remember that miracles happen when you obey the Word. Nothing is impossible with God. {John Hagee's newsfeed}

But if you stay in me and obey my commands, you may ask any request you like, and it will be granted! John 15:7 NLV {Mylon LeFevre's newsfeed}

I am confident in what has clearly been spoken into my heart these past several weeks and this is just another confirmation of that. Never underestimate what/who God is going to use to communicate something, or how He is going to do it!  I love that God is alive in me and I am so thankful that I am able to have such an incredible relationship with Him!!
