I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!

I can say to myself: I TOLD YOU SO!

I was praising God before to today, did it during this day and will continue to do it everyday espcially for days like today!

Yes, I’m shouting.  I’m screaming!  Well, not really physically (my throat is worn out!), but my entire being is so giddy with blessings I almost don’t know what to do.  It’s hard for me to sit here and write this, I have so much energy.  I’ve been running around since I got home trying to calm myself down.  I know, it sounds weird, but it’s like a jolt of pure adrenalin.

I wrote a couple of days ago that today, I’d be singing at a women’s event.  I have had laryngitis for over two weeks, but I knew God would bless this day no matter how I sounded.  HE WOULD MAKE MY SOUND PLEASING TO HIM!  –Because really, truly, for real–it’s all about HIM.  It’s not about me, it’s not about you, it’s not about what you have or are gonna have, do or want to do—it’s about GOD.  Today was another confirmation to me that MY GOD IS REAL!  If I could sing right now, I’d be singing that song:

My God is real, real in my soul
My God is real for He has washed and made me whole
His love for me is like pure gold
My God is real for I can feel Him in my soul

PRAISES!  I want all I do to praise Him.

Today, I sang.  I actually made sounds and they were, most of the time, on key and full.  There was a few “ify” moments, but I warned the crowd there may be and I’d just be singing no matter what.  I gave it my all, because GOD had me.  It was Him who made what I did a blessing –He used me!  That is the most exciting part!

The whole event was such a blessing.  It was a day of rejoicing and knowing that God is in control.  The speakers were awesome–I call them both my good friends, I love them so.  Tammy Whitehurst and Teresa Richenberger are two super talented Christian women who share their stories and insight on why everyone should know and trust in Jesus.  I’ve heard them both several times and I never get tired of listening to their testimonies, anecdotes and real life truth.  They are both such POSITIVE people.  I love to surround myself with those types. 🙂

The church we were at today was a place where I felt the warmth of friendship right when I entered the door–such a blessing.  Hugs and smiles and happy greetings were flying from every direction.  The women who put this event together did such a great job of making sure everyone felt welcome and at home.  Those in attendance were so full of joy and ready to praise God together.  This cowboy church–The Circle C was a spirit filled place where I could feel God moving the entire time I was there!



I’m just going to share a couple of pictures of the event today.

  • The first one is the panoramic I took from the stage when I was about to sing.  I loved doing this!  It got everyone SMILING right off the bat!
  • The second one is of my new friend Sylvia and I.  This lady made me smile the entire event.  She greeted me early on and always had a smile for me whenever I looked her way.  This sweet woman kept her Bible open and her hands in the air!  She would say “PRAISE THE LORD” in the sweetest little voice.  I told her numerous times how cute she is, because I saw God in her.  I want to be like Sylvia!  I thank God for allowing me to see HIM in her.  Amen!




I’ve never really thought about this. Not sure why I haven’t. My eyes have been opened to this verse and I absolutely LOVE IT! God sings joyfully over us…WOW! We sing praises to HIM, of course, but HE does the same for us. That is so comforting to me and overwhelming at the same time! Love this verse:


The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.”
-Zephaniah 3:17


We were at the Mandisa concert tonight. She was great. Brandon Heath was great too. But check out this man and his JOY… He stole the show for me!!!
