Love Revolution

So today was a very ordinary day. I didn’t have classes so i just woke up and started running errands. I actually got to practice with my friend Lauren for worship on Sunday (I’m the worship leader of my christian sorority) and it went really well. I’ve been praying for a guitarist to come to Phi Lamb and Lauren was praying to have motivation for practicing her guitar so it just worked out. We ironed out the logistics and I cannot wait until Sunday! If there is anything in the world that i love to do its sing, especially worship music. I am not the best singer in the world so don’t think I’m like the next Mariah Carey or anything, but something about lying on my bed, singing along with my itunes in a full on worship sesh fills my soul. It had been a while since I stopped thinking about all the stressfulness of life and just worshipped by myself but this week I started to get back into the swing of things. Monday, while thinking about what i wanted to do for worship i stumbled upon a song by Natalie Grant that rocked my soul. its called Your Great Name and its from her new album Love Revolution.

That song was just what I needed to refocus and reset my gaze. That was the day i wrote my last blog post and I had it blasting on repeat just writing and being on my own with God. Just being reminded how powerful His name was awe inspiring. I became more aware of who God is and got a healthy does of fear and reverence for the Lord.

Another song that has been on my heart for a while is Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus. My sorority had a prayer night that same Monday. We did a short devotional and just sat and prayed for a good half hour. I honestly didn’t say anything and waited for God to talk and He brought me to a couple of passages and kept repeating this song in my head. The lyrics are:

“Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of this earth shall grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.”
And that was pretty much my prayer for thirty minutes. I repeated the chorus in my head over and over and every time I started to think about other things i needed to get done, God snapped his fingers, got my attention and turned my face towards Him again. It has definitely shown me how much of a child i still am. But it was good to just be still and know that He is God.
So back to today, i went grocery shopping with my friend Erin today with a budget of $60 and i spent $96. NO GOOD. After feeling so ashamed for my spending habits i came home and made dinner because i was planning on trying out this new baggy method to cook chicken. It turned out awesome and was deeeeelish!!! I had to stop and give God huge props for this creation.
 This was right out of the oven. I basically took the chicken, rubbed herbs and seasonings on it, added pppers and onions and stuffed it in the bag. It took one hour at 350F but it was well worth it.
This was the finished result. I was going to cook a little rice to go with it but waiting another 20mins was not gonna happen so I made 7min noodles and voila!
And that was pretty much my day. I did want to address one thing before I sign off. As you may have noticed, some of my posts are not as nonchalant as this one is. Writing is the way I evaluate my life and deal with stress but, I assure you i am not completely depressed! lol. I tend to write deep things because it helps me put into words thins that have been culminating over a period of weeks and its my release! So yeah…thats it.
