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:
