A Word on Worship + {my favorite song right now}

Happy almost Friday, Friends.

It’s been kind of a long week, and one that needed some major praise music playing in the background. That is totally my go-to when all I want to do is crawl back in bed or completely roll over and believe the lies the enemy is telling me. (or when I'm feeling like a complete failure in life and as a mother).

I turn it up real loud. 

I just read this article on worship and wanted to pass it along—it will fire you up. It made me just want to sing my heart out as though my life depended on it.  Praising him and thanking him and being reminded of who he is and what he has done is the most powerful thing we can do as believers. It gets our head and heart back into the right state of mind (and out of the yucky places of doubt and defeat.) 
Click Here to read the article from The Resurgence (which is SUCH a great resource with lots of gospel-centered articles and info on tons of topics.) 

Here’s a quote from it:

God loves to hear us singing heartily to him because it is a visible sign of our faith. 
We openly identify with him and signal our allegiance when we praise him with singing. 
No matter how rugged the terrain we’re crossing, how dark the night, or how many the flaming arrows of the enemy, the singing army of God DECLARES ITS TRUST IN JESUS, the commander who will lead us to overwhelming victory and lasting peace.

 -Bobby and Kristen Gilles

You're fired up, aren't you!?

So, here's one of my favs I've had on repeat lately reminding me that I NEED HIM so so badly! Yes, its another All Sons and Daughters song—theyr'e just so good! (Click Here for another post on worship and another song by them).

Also, Ruthie Mae turned 3 months and is auditioning to be on the remake of "Little House on the Prairie." She is by far the sweetest little thing you could ever imagine.
