I found this video on Pinterest and it made me cry...while it spoke truth!!
So many times, we as older siblings push the younger ones away! Why? Why do we was older siblings need to be so selfish? All they want is affirmation, love, and for us to sacrifice a little bit of our time for them! We need to make sure we leave our younger siblings a legacy...how do you want your little brother and/or sister to remember you? I know I want Sydney to remember me as an older sister in whom she can confide, play with, run to when she needs comfort, etc.
Now I admit...for the past eleven and a half years I have failed miserably...praise God I get a second chance...I pray that God grants me another eleven and a half years to make up for the past.
Anyway...I hope this video speaks to you like it did me!
I found this song on Pinterest...it is absolutely amazing! This should be each Christian's desire...to live their life for the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray y'all enjoy this b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l song as much as I do...enjoy!
As I was doing school about two weeks ago (I think the time frame is right) I heard this song. I wasn't exactly sure what Pandora had playing so I was getting ready to dislike the music. As I continued to listen to the words, I instantly fell in love with it and liked it. Needless to say, while I do school, I sing along :) I absolutely love the message this song gives!! I'm so thankful that we have a Father who will meet us with HIS arms wide open!
I don't know much about Dierks Bentley....except for the fact that he is not a southern gospel singer/writer. He is simply a country singer! I do not promote country music...yes I may play southern gospel songs written by country singers. I simply promote the message the song gives!!
Anyway...without further rambling...enjoy the "Prodigal Son's Prayer" by Dierks Bentley :)
OK. so the same friend who gave me both Carlton Forrester songs also gave me an arrangement of Blessed Assurance by Rob Deas. I have yet to learn it the way it's supposed to sound...even though I've had it for a little over five months :P Why you ask? Let me just tell you that I have a really hard time with timing when it comes to the piano :P Anyway...enough said...found the song on YouTube...enjoy ;)
I am giving away the book "Singlehood That Glorifies God" by John Coblentz. I have read this book and liked it. Instead of referencing "courting/courtship" the author references "dating"...that is the only thing I had issues with. Other than that...it was really good.
It talks about how single people need to understand themselves and focus on serving God.
