Cameron puts on a show #2 (The Apple Song)

video

This is the better video of the two! Cameron sings the "apple" song, I believe, and he even points to who he is singing to! I think its crazy that he makes up his own songs. I mean, its jibber jabber, he isn't really saying words, but I think its precious! :)

Do I have a musician on my hands? What do you think?

Joy

At care groups Wednesday we sang the song "You Are My King" by Chris Tomlin. One line really stuck out to me.

"It's my JOY to honor you, in all I do"

I felt so convicted singing that line. Joy. Sometimes I get frustrated with the tasks God puts in front of me. Or, the situations I put myself in, and choose not to glorify God. But what if I always was Joyful to serve and honor God.

It doesn't say, I'm honoring you because you said I should. It doesn't say, I'm honoring you, because I'm suppose to. It doesn't say, I'm honoring you, even though I don't want to. IT SAYS I'm honoring you because you fill me with joy.

I am realizing I need to not look at God's truth as a burden, or something I have a hard time obeying, but something I should be grateful for. God has picked me as his precious child and there is a reason He wants me to honor him.

You Are My King - Chris Tomlin

I'm forgiven because you were forsaken
I'm accepted, You were condemned
I'm alive and well
Your spirit is within me
Because you died and rose again

Amazing love, how can it be?
That you, my king. would die for me
Amazing love, I know it's true
Its my joy to honor you
In all I do
I honor you

You are my king
You are my king
Jesus, You are my king
Jesus, You are my king

Let It Go

I have been meaning to write this post for weeks now. Man, where does the time go!

Over the last 4 months I have gone through such a hard but amazing process. A process of brokenness, growing, and healing. As much as it hurt, I am thankful I experienced it all. Every emotion. It took me so long to finally be able to "let go" of things and move on. Over the last month and half I finally was able to do that. It has been such a rejuvenating feeling. It's so great to know that God can teach me things and move in me whenever He wants to! :) About 2 weeks ago I got the new Andrea Hamilton CD and have been listening to it on repeat! There is one track on the cd called "Let It Go," and the first time I heard it I felt so affirmed by the lyrics. I felt like she was singing about my last four months and finally affirming me in the decision I made over the last 5 weeks. I know God has something amazing in store for me!

These are the lyrics:

Remember how we got started*
Empty handed but open hearted*
Arms wide nothing to hide nothing to prove*
We weren't scared of anything*
Stepping out and jumping in*
To whatever our hearts wanted to do*
Then what happened, I gave it all I had*
Why did it hurt me so bad*
Oh just let it go*
Somehow we got stranded*
Wounded, misunderstanding*
and love hardly feels inviting anymore*
The past got buried in pride*
It's hard to hold but easy to hide*
and I can tell it's weighing on my soul*
Is it worth it, when I take a look inside*
all the heartache I find*
Oh just let it go*
Oh just let it go*
It's safe between the walls we build*
Tall with stones and anger filled*
But it's lonely and it's cold*
Oh just let it go*
Oh just let it go*
You were told a lie, let it go*
Tired of trying, let it go*
You're worried about tomorrow, let it go*
Full of pain and sorrow, let it go*
If you're angry about the past, love that didn't last*
Dreams that died too fast, let it go*
Oh just let it go*

God is constantly teaching me lessons and humbling me. I love knowing that I have such a wonderful Savior on my side who is willing to listen to me cry, and be mad and angry, and yet God has such a divine plan for me and He can't wait until I walk in His path to find it and give praises to Him!
