Sanctified Sunday/Melodic Monday

Well, this morning's church service kicked my butt. It started on our way to church where Dave offered some constructive criticism on how to handle Noah's tantrums. As much as it hurt my pride to hear, he was right...I just felt a little attacked since this is my "job". I walked into church feeling a little crushed, which looking back was probably a good thing.

Worship this morning just about did me in. For the first time in a long time, I allowed myself to weep freely and in the process I really felt like I was breaking (in a good way). Realizing that I couldn't be a good parent by myself and realizing who I have become these last few months apart from God broke me, and my need for Him became very clear. I pretty much sobbed through the whole of worship. One of the songs they did today was Lifehouse's "Everything". I

The lyrics got to me in a deeply profound way...as well as my rememberance of the skit.

Anyway, then Tony recapped 2007 and recast the vision for 2008. Sitting there, listening to him, I felt purpose and hope again for why we are here and what our mission is...something I have been lacking for a few months now. I felt encouraged, convicted, and motivated to do something.

Thank you Jesus for meeting me today. I really really needed you.

Everything: By Lifehouse

Find me here and speak to me
I want to feel you I need to hear you
You are the light that's leading me
To the place where I find peace again

You are the strength that keeps me walking
You are the hope that keeps me trusting
You are the light to my soul
You are my purpose
You're everything

And how can I stand here with You
And not be moved by You?
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this?

You calm the storm and You give me rest
You hold me in your hand
You won't let me fall
You still my heart
And You take my breath away
Would You take me in?
Take me deeper now

And how can I stand here with You
And not be moved by You?
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this?

And how can I stand here with You
And not be moved by You?
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this?

'Cause You're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything
Everything

'Cause You're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything
Everything

'Cause You're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything
Everything

'Cause You're all I want
You're all I need
Everything
Everything

And how can I stand here with You
And not be moved by You?
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this?

And how can I stand here with You
And not be moved by You?
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this?

And how can I stand here with You
And not be moved by You?
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this?

Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this?

Hmm... I will have to think of a new Melodic Monday. ;)

This morning I said you looked pregnant. Then, I did not really finish my thought. Basically, what I meant to say was something like...

Kim, you look pregnant. It is so cute!! The little belly. It is little person in there. So cute! I heard this sermon one time about how a pregnant woman should be the most beautiful thing to her husband by (Mark Driscoll).

Anyway, it was meant to be a good comment but sort of came out (at least to me) as a foot in mouth moment. Sorry.

See you Tuesday!!! :)
