Speak To Me - Throwback Thursday
Here I Am Again - Throwback Thursday
I was inspired to write this song from 1 Samuel 3, in which God was speaking to Samuel. Samuel doubted that he was hearing God's voice. In fact, at the beginning of the chapter it says, "In those days the word of the Lord was rare; there were not many visions," yet God was in fact speaking to him. Samuel did finally lay down and say, "Speak , for Your servant is listening."
Instead of always assuming that God is not speaking, may we be a people who are ever-watching and listening with expectancy that God is in fact ready to speak to us.
Song of the Week - #35 - "Simeon's Song"
This song is just another of thousands of songs written sense the time of King David that simply expresses love to God. Special thanks to Bryan Taylor for playing brushes and to Tommy Emmanuel for inspiring me to learn how to play with a thumb pick!
Song of the Week - #34 - "Mary's Song"
This song comes from the story of Simeon in the gospel of Luke, Chapter 2. It can be easy to forget that when Jesus came to earth on that first Christmas, for centuries he was the long awaited, prophesied, and promised Savior. When Simeon saw Jesus in the temple, he knew the wait was over. Christmas means the wait is done! Our Rescuer has come.
Song of the Week - #33 - "O Little Town of Bethlehem"
Christmas is amazing! Astounding! What a wonder that God would come to earth through a lowly virgin girl to bring the world His salvation! This song focuses on how Mary, though receiving the most startling news anyone could receive, responded with trust, surrender and worship.
Song of the Week - #32 - "I'm Going to Bethlehem"
This has always been one of my favorite Christmas songs. I love the melody and the reminder that God chose a small, seemingly insignificant place to bring the greatest gift the world would ever know! It brings so much hope to all of us that our God can use simple things, places, and people like us to show his glory!
I’m so fortunate to have had the privilege of visiting Bethlehem - both the traditional location where it’s believed Jesus was born as well as the fields where the Lord’s glory shone, astounding the shepherds by the angel’s announcement.
