Constant Craving

Nothing like some K.D. Lang and Depeche Mode to help ya worship the Lord on Sunday morning! Thats how we roll at Heartsong. Today the worship band sang two songs that I never really thought you would hear in church, but also that I really hadn't thought about being "churchy." We also sang one of my fav's... Jesus Paid It All.

But, back to Depeche Mode, why had I not actually thought about Jesus when singing the song Personal Jesus??? I mean really if you listen to the lyrics, you will see that it could totally be a message, about not forgetting that Jesus is in control, and when you need him he is there.

We have one of the best worship bands hands down, during the offering today Maggie Lee sang K.D. Lang's Constant craving. I really had never thought about God when this song was a hit so many years ago. Yet again listening to the lyrics... It fits, what we do as Jesus Followers, we crave Jesus. We have to remember, or be reminded that Jesus is a necessity in life. We can't, well I can't make it day to day without Jesus! He paid the ultimate price for my (our) sins and we have to make sure we let him in and constantly seek him. In doing that we can truly seek out the song he has planted in our hearts to sing. AKA Find our Heartsong. Which is our current message series and growth groups.

Today was the start of our growth groups small groups. I think this is going to be a great group. There are 9 of us and we all have different backgrounds and ages. One of our first things to talk about was a time line of our lives, ups and downs, highs and lows throughout our lives that could have lead to where we are today spiritually. It is also to help us see if there are certain places in our lives we might have seen as times that were one way, but maybe they were gifts from God for later in life. (does that make sense?) Anyway, OMG I am such a cry baby! I can't help but cry when I hear some of the time lines at my table as we are sharing. But, the part where God intervened is when the man sitting next to me started telling us about the fact that their girls were all grown up and married when they moved to Memphis, and they were kind of starting over, when they got a call from an adoption agency.... They ended up adopted 3 babies, the youngest is now 15. Man I LOST IT! Ok, God I hear you loud and clear!

Over fall break I am going to actively investigate our best option to start this process. I had originally thought we would start this process once school settled down, then I thought maybe we should wait til the house sells, but I am feeling the nudge that its not in my time, we should start this now.

I hear the Savior say
Thy strength indeed is small
Child of weakness watch and pray
Find in me thine all in all

  1. Those tears you have and the emotions you feel ... its God nudging you! :) I wish you all the best as you begin to explore adoption.
    For us, it was hard to decide how to proceed (ie: agency vs. attorney, what size agency, etc), so I'll pray that your decisions are obvious! :) LOL
