Toot Your Horn

DAILY PROMPT:

Most of us are excellent at being self-deprecating, and are not so good at the opposite. Tell us your favorite thing about yourself.

Things I like about me:

(It only took 48 years, a big God, 10+ years of meetings/therapy, for me to even be able to do this,  hallelujah!)

1.  I’m a good wife and mother, my precious husband and adorable children told me so! Even God loves me, He calls me Beloved.  He sees you that way too.  I am growing in my relationship with Jesus.  We are coming to know each other more every time we spend time together.  I am so glad we are past the “religious” stage, now we can talk anywhere and anytime, and so can you…

2.  I have let go of being a perfectionist.  I used to drive myself nuts, along with everyone else.  I am ok not being right all the time.  I am learning to receive grace and mercy from God.  My heart was so hard for so long.  When you get hurt it’s easy to put up the walls.  But then I was trapped in a cage with myself, that was scary! Thank goodness things change.

3.  I am grateful for the gift of music that God gave me.  I love playing music with my wonderful husband, Bob.  We are blessed to play at Janesville Apostolic Ministries with an awesome group of anointed singers every week. I also write my own songs and have dabbled in recording.  Even though I have a lot to learn yet, I am learning to appreciate the small things, and the process of growing.

4.  I am a giver.  I love to give things away, just ask my husband.  I guess I remember the days when the kids and I lived at the shelter and had nothing.  We left with 2 black garbage bags, the universal suitcase!  These days God has restored my life, and He can restore yours too…

Here ‘s a Free Song  for you that I wrote, called “Peace”  It has sax, I love sax!

GODS PROMISE TO YOU:

From the Song of Solomon 2:10

*My beloved spoke, and said to me:  “Rise up, my love, my fair one,  And come away.” (NKJV)

*My beloved speaks and says to me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. (AMP)

*My beloved spoke and said to me, Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me. (NIV)

*My lover said to me, “Rise up, my darling! Come away with me, my fair one! (NLT)

MY PRAYER FOR YOU:

Dear Lord, 

We thank you, for giving us new sight today.  Help us see ourselves through Your eyes of love and grace, instead of our own.

We receive Your forgiveness today, we receive Your love, we receive Your super-abounding grace and mercy.  We receive Your unmerited and unearned favor.   

We want to come away with You, to the secret place, where we can talk, and just hang out and be.  Your presence changes everything.  Take us away Lord, just like Calgon!
