Song I heard today

I heard a new song today on a country station that blew my spiritual socks off.

It's called "I saw God today" by George Strait.

Here's the chorus and you can see what I mean:

I've been to church
I've read the book
I know he's here
But I don't look
Near as often as I should
Yeah, I know I should
His fingerprints are everywhere
I just slowed down to stop and stare
Opened my eyes and man I swear
I saw God today


Awesome huh?

Recent happenings

Wow a lot has happened the past six months.

My baby girl will turn one this week. Boy the time has flown by. She is a blessing to us.

I was ordained as a deacon at Gateway Baptist Church back in December, I feel honored to be chosen by my church family.

I'm still struggling with a daily quiet time, but I've started reading Proverbs with stepson every morning.

Our church has a biggest loser contest that ran from September thru January, that I won. I lost over 40 lbs and 16% of my bodyweight.

So that is just a few quick things, I hope to start a regular blogging schedule as time permits.

A humble and responsive heart

2 kings 22:19

Because your heart was responsive and you humbled yourself before the LORD when you heard what I have spoken against this place and its people, that they would become accursed and laid waste, and because you tore your robes and wept in my presence, I have heard you, declares the LORD.

The context of this verse is that King Josiah was read the book of the covenant when it was found and this was his response to the Word of God.

What it speaks to me today is the question: Is my heart responsive before the Lord, His Word and His will for me today? Will I humble myself before Jesus and turn to Him for my needs today?

I'd like to answer that and say Yes to both questions, but more times than not I haven't been doing that. For me this life get busy and the time to slow down and hear from Jesus through the Word and prayer is hard to find.

But I've made a committment to set the alarm everyday at 5:45, to get up and spend time with Jesus every morning. Please pray for me that I can get used to the earlier wakeup time, and that God would meet with me in a powerful way.

Sin

I ran across a quote from Tim Keller about sin today:

'Sin' is not simply breaking rules but is building your identity on things
other than God, which leads internally to emptiness, craving, and spiritual
slavery and externally to exclusion, conflict, and social injustice.



That about sums it up doesn't it. I basically believed that, but seeing it defined this way really drove the point home - That anything not of God is sin. We must build our lives on the Christ the Rock.
