Here's to Finding a Prayer Groove

Unashamed Love
(Lamont Hierbert - Ten Shekel Shirt)

You're calling me to lay aside the worries of my day
To quiet down my busy mind and find a hiding place
Worthy, You are worthy

I open up my heart and let my spirit worship Yours
I open up my mouth and let a song of praise come forth
Worthy, You are worthy

Of a child-like faith
And of my honest praise
And of my unashamed love
Of a holy life
And of my sacrifice
And of my unashamed love

I know these are fairly 'old' worship songs, but they have now become a part of my daily routine. My MP3 goes on and I listen to these songs, sing these songs, pray them and even just think them, depending on the day.

These along with now beginning to pray through the book of Ephesians...that will be the routine for the time being. Find me some quiet to throw in there as well and we'll be away to the races ;D! Life is such an up and down, inside and out, mixed bag of events depending on the day. But you know, it's a blessing to simply be here and be surrounded by the people I am, both in the flesh and in the blogosphere. To have a chance to live life, to walk alongside people, to venture down uncharted roads and territory. Life's not perfect, even on the best of days...more like receiving a prize at the carnival fishing never quite know what to expect.

But experiencing life together, standing in the gap for each other, walking alongside and experiencing life through the eyes of those around us, that's what life is all about. You are all amazing blessings...peace to you and yours!

Trading My Sorrows
(Darrell Evans)

I'm trading my sorrows
I'm trading my shame
I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord

I'm trading my sickness
I'm trading my pain
I'm laying it down for the joy of the Lord

We say yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord Amen

I'm pressed but not crushed persecuted not abandoned
Struck down but not destroyed
I am blessed beyond the curse for his promise will endure
That his joy's gonna be my strength

Though the sorrow may last for the night
His joy comes with the morning

Yeah, Cinder!
His joy comes in the morning without fail everyday.
I love the short period of dawn very much =)

Audrey ~ That short period of dawn is really special isn't it? His joy does come in the morning without fail...somedays you might have to look at little to find the small package it's wrapped up in, but it's always there without a doubt.
