Passion is a gritty kind of love, tough and

optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

Sunday, January 14, 2007

I have said this prayer, 100 times, maybe even 10,000 times. Not even knowing it was in the bible. Back in the day, when I couldn’t sleep, I would say it, and the Hail Mary’s almost like a chant to help me fall asleep. Not really paying attention to the words, but just saying them.

It’s different now. I know where to find them, in the book of Matthew but because I am not some super scripture knower, I use to get me to the exact place. When I say them now, I hear the meaning of each word and how it comes together for something bigger, something much bigger than I can even fathom.

We went to see ‘Stomp the Yard’. One part of the movie, they say this, it’s part of their heritage. I heard it, and instantly smiled. I wondered how many in that place heard what I heard, that God, no matter what, has our back. No matter how we get in our own way, how we screw it up, even how we do great things, it’s all about Him, and His will.

Matthew 6:9-13
Our Father,

Who art in heaven,

Hallowed be Thy Name.

Thy Kingdom come.

Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from evil.


I have attached some of my favorite songs for worship today. Some are songs I love that people put their own pictures to, some are videos that people took at concerts, and I know that they are not perfect, but I found myself getting lost in them, remembering how great God is.

One of them, the one by Nicole Nordeman, oh my, I was moved to tears by the many faces of Jesus. It’s one of my favorite songs, and sometimes, I wonder, what if my heart wasn’t open to all His glory. Then what?

Be blessed this Sunday

While you were sleeping – Casting Crowns

What If – Nicole Nordeman
