Walk into my house any random day and you'll know several things instantly. Someone in the house is very health conscious or trying to lose weight (yes, that would be me). This is obvious because of the huge treadmill outfitted for me to do work on the computer while I walk next to the over sized chair. There is at least one child in the house due to the toddler height easel and the bobble headed Elmo toy next to it and the Candy Land game. Listen for a few moments and whether I realize it or not before the end of a sixty minute time frame I'll have made something silly into a soulful ditty.
Long ago in a far away land called pre-puberty I used to LOVE to sing. When I was still young and doe eyed I used to fantasize about how cool it would be to be a jet setting performer. Now I find my greatest joy and freedom in singing for an audience of three in one. Some days I'll turn my radio off and sing songs I believe touch the heart of my first love and eternal love. In addition to spending time worshiping God in song alone or in a corporate setting I am focusing on living my life in a way that expresses my adoration, adulation, exaltation, magnification, and unadulterated love for God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It doesn't mean I don't make mistakes or have flaws it simply means when He looks at me through the blood stained glasses prescribed by Jesus Christ what I present is acceptable to Him. That makes me want to love Him more, all over again.
