A small flame

A small flame

Loved by the King

Since we've announced our plans to move, I have been overwhelmed by the wonderful messages of encouragement and support that we have gotten. While our leaving definitely is bittersweet, both to us and to those we love here, so many people have expressed to us how excited they are to see God moving us on to a place where we can flourish in our service for Him. Personally, I have felt a lifting of the huge weight I have carried for so long. Although Phil & I will both be processing the things we have experienced here for a long time to come, the decision to move forward is breathing new hope and joy into us. Our new direction will not be without challenges, but God has been so faithful to us and I know he will continue to surround us. Right now I am loving this song by Chris Tomlin. God is amazing, and the fact that he loves me makes my heart soar!


There is an endless song
Echoes in my soul
I hear the music ring
And though the storms may come
I am holding on
To the rock I cling
*
How can I keep from singing Your praise
How can I ever say enough
How amazing is Your love
How can I keep from shouting Your name
I know I am loved by the King
And it makes my heart want to sing
*
I will lift my eyes
In the darkest night
For I know my Savior lives
And I will walk with You
Knowing You'll see me through
And sing the songs You give
I can sing in the troubled times
Sing when I win
I can sing when I lose my step
And fall down again
I can sing 'cause You pick me up
Sing 'cause You're there
I can sing 'cause You hear me, Lord
When I call to You in prayer
I can sing with my last breath
Sing for I know
That I'll sing with the angels
And the saints around the throne
*
How can I keep from singing your praise
How can I ever say enough
How amazing is your love
How can I keep from shouting Your name
I know I am loved by the King
And it makes my heart want to sing

Hi Rachel! I like your blog. I was wondering if it would be okay with you if I featured it on my blog? I've been looking for good blogs that don't already have a huge readership. I don't really know what readership you have because I don't see any subscription info, but please stop by my blog and let me know! You may also email at savedbygraceeph289@gmail.com. It's been a lot harder to find a blog that I liked for this idea than I thought!
