BLESSINGS ABOUND!

What a weekend I’ve just had!

I was absolutely honored to be able to sing at a Women’s Retreat in Gatesville, Texas. THEN I got to sing in front of a group of lady’s at one of the Gatesville prisons.  That was probably the best crowd I’ve ever had the opportunity to sing in front of.  They sang along, clapped, AMEN’ed and praised with hands up and hearts open.  It was truly and absolutely an evening I will never ever forget.  This will be one of those things I put on my greatest times of my life list.  God knows I want to be used by Him and this weekend, I believe I was truly working for Him.

My prayer is to continue this in my daily life no matter where I am, who I’m with or what is going on.

I was absolutely amazed at what God was doing in both places this weekend.  The more I ask God to lessen me and make Himself greater and greater in all I do…the more I feel His mighty power.  I know it’s always there, but when I humble myself, HE is more evident.  He is my voice.  He is the reason I sing.  It is HIS gift that allows me to sing.  When people hear my voice, I want them to hear HIM.

I’m still so pumped from the experience of this weekend!  The women who were involved in both events blessed me so!  Most of all, GOD BLESSED US ALL!  I felt His constant presence and His absolute love.

I always enjoy working with my friend Tammy Whitehurst who made all this happen for me.  We will be doing another event this coming Saturday as well–right here in my hometown.  I am certain it will be an absolute blessing as well!

I’m truly blessed and honored to work for our Lord.

He ALWAYS shows us all (when we look…and we must keep looking) that BLESSINGS ABOUND!

Anger truly NEVER works.

Oopsy…Oops…did I do that?

YES I DID!

I totally messed up today.  I said things and used tones of voice that I shouldn’t.

I found myself going absolutely bahhzerko crazy in the middle of Sams today.

I was so fed up …tired, sick of attitude, disrespect and most of all negativity.  Not trying to excuse myself in any way, but just explaining why my head started to spin around exorcist style in the middle of the book isle.

Did it help for me to say the things I did?  Nope.

Did it help to get angry?  Nope.

Did it add minutes to my life or help my health in any way?  I’m certain that is a NOPE.

But this is the most important question:
Did it in any way show anyone at all (especially the person I was talking to…I promise I didn’t make a scene) JESUS?

I’m most ashamed of this, “NOPE.”

Looking back, it is crazy how fast that kind of anger can burst out like an explosion.

I can’t even remember all of the ugly words that exited my lips.  I know none of them were loving, pretty or in the least bit helpful.  They just added to the chaos that was already unfolding.  They did not make anything move forward or help anyone understand the situation a bit better.

I was wrong.  Not saying the other person was right, but I know I was wrong.

It’s important to admit it in order to move on.  Do you ever have times where you try and justify your anger?  It just doesn’t work.

Anger truly never works.
