The Lord has been so sweet to prepare me for this week. Just this past weekend I was scheduled to speak at a huge women's conference--this was something that caused an equal amount of terror and excitement for me ;) But, as many of you know, the Lord had different plans. You can read about it here.
It was such a powerful experience. I felt so tenderly cared for and loved by God. I felt the heaviness and beauty of His favor. That day will be a monument to His relentless pursuit of my worship. Such a perfect way to walk into today--to be anchored in HIS favor, HIS power, HIS delight, HIS worship. All great weapons to combat the fear that could potentially creep in.
Will you join with me in praying over this? Will you ask the Lord to be gracious--to have this collection of only a few, little songs bring glory to Him and joy to the listeners? Will you pray that the enemy would have no part in this week? Will you pray that my flesh would be kept at bay and that if it does rear its head that I would be ready, prepared to preach the gospel to myself? Will you pray that my voice will hold up--that I would sing the song the Lord would give me with the voice only I have? Will you pray that I delight in His creativity in crafting the way I hear music and how it overflows through my vocal folds? Even then, will you pray that I will be malleable--able to joyfully take direction and criticism? Will you pray for the players and producers--that even they would be ministered to? Will you pray the Holy Spirit would be thick in that place?
Thank you, friends.
I hope to be posting during the process...so be keeping an eye out ;)
