A person who has had a impact on my life recently. One person who comes to mind is Miss. Moriah. She inspires me to always be full of joy, to be myself, to love Christ more than this life, to dream, to create, to explore, to imagine, to keep my hair down, to love everything that God throws my way. She is Godly young woman and I am so glad I know her. Twinkle.
And a song that I have listen to over 100 times (Its says on itunes) There are two of them. One is “After the Storm” By Mumford and Sons. I have heard that 115 times on my computer. But I posted that song already, so I am going to post “Orange Colored Sky” By Nat King Cole. This one is second with 108 listens.
This is a cover of a Adele/Bob Dylan that I made. Its the first video of me singing I have personally put on youtube. So it’s pretty scary for me. But I figure I should post it somewhere and facebook didn’t seem safe enough. This place is safe. I am just singin over the instrumental. Not that impressive…but here it is…
For those of you who don’t know I love music. But I can’t play a note. I don’t play piano, guitar, cello or harp. This makes me feel insecure at times because I have a lot of friends who can play pretty much anything they get their hands on and also write songs like no ones business. All I can do is sing.
But yesterday during the sermon at church I realized something for the millionth time. But this time it stuck. God gave me my voice. God gave me the gifts that he did for a reason. And that reason is to glorify him by using it. So rather than about how I can’t play the guitar or the piano and wishing I was more like so and so, I am going to sing my heart out, and not to show it off, but for his glory. I want to show people the joy that I have in Christ. I can show this joy by singing.
So I thank God for the gift of music, and I pray I will use any musical skill I have for him.
Someone who inspires me. Corrie Ten Boom inspires me because of how self-sacrificing she was. Putting herself in danger for others, being a light the darkest of places, and then after all she went thought at the hands of the Nazis (two of these things being losing her sister and best friend as well as her father) she forgave them and dedicated time into helping the Nazis come to know Christ. By Gods grace she was truly great. I can’t wait to meet her.
“There is no pit so deep, that God’s love is not deeper still.” -Corrie Ten Boom
A song I wish I heard on the radio. ‘Everything’s ok’ by Chris Rice.
“Then He sent you along like a summer day
With a blue-sky smile on your funny face
And a bird flew by singing “Everything’s gonna be okay!”, yeah
So we laughed all day with the man in the moon
And we thanked the Good Lord for the afternoon
‘Cause He showed me His love by sending me you
And it’s okay, now
A photo of somethings I would like to do before I die. Well…thats a long list. But let me give you the main things. Get married, travel, make a home, have kids. Those are the most important to me.
