Today's song is one that is new for me.
Over the weekend at the Greentree Women's retreat we sang this song. And as I stood in that room surrounded by all of those women, I felt God like never before. I haven't attended Greentree Chruch in almost a year, but it was like I never left. I am so greatful to these Godly women who didn't let time or distance change things between us. I am thankful for the opportunity to entertain them with a skit I was asked to write. All of the worrying the other day was because in my heart I wanted to honor God with what I had written. I desparately want to do the work He has given me to do, well. And watching the skit unfold I praised God for giving me the words. I praised God that He had assembled a group of women who were willing to put themselves out there for His cause. I was filled with gratitude that the message that He laid on my heart was able to be played out in a way that brought glory to Him and entertainment to the women.
So I thought I would revisit this song today as a reminder of the weekend. It has been rolling around in my mind ever since. It reminds me of the weekend. It reminds of my friends. I reminds me of where my strength and ability come from. Most of all, it reminds me of my purpose.
I've also added a few scriptures that continue the theme.
