Watery Eyes

This morning, Angel and I did a little worship concert in our living room. We like to sing and dance, but even more so when we have the microphone hooked up to the amp & speakers. Kids jus love performing!
She’d copy my mouth as I sang, and my hands as I motioned.

When I put on Warr Acres’ song, “Hymn of Remembrance”, a song that really touches and ministers to me, about half way through, both of us experienced the same thing, at the same time. Our eyes started tearing up.
I asked if she was crying & she smiled and defiantly denied it, but said her eyes were watery.
I gave her a hug as she sat there on the amp, confused.

A few minutes later, I explained to her that God is spirit – and we have spirit too – our spirits are all invisible & live forever. God’s spirit was heavy in the room and that song made His heart happy …which made OUR spirits happy inside.
And that’s why we suddenly got teary-eyed.

I watched my 6-yr old’s smiley expression as I explained, and noticed she started to get teary again while she listened to me.
And then she was off to the next thing…a game of Temple Run 2.

It was there and then gone.

But what a special moment. What I like to call, a wink from God.

A Prayer for Today, and for our Future

This is something I wrote this morning while I was supposed to me paying attention to the teacher @ church…but he kept saying things that made me think…and then I just started writing…

Spirit of the living God

Apprehend me

I’m calling out to you, gurgling my request

From this thick pool of pride

About to submerge me.


Sweet Spirit of the living God,

Apprehend me!

Whip me around, get down on my level

Look in my eyes and speak with the fullness

Of your strength and subtlety.


Touch me inside

With your discerning love.

Point me in the way of my destiny,

Designed by your Word from before time began.


Impart your power that changes my life

That changes a life…that changes a life

That changes a church

That changes a city

That brings back a NATION to its founding truths!
