My blog is to encourage and to uplift those who love God and to encourage them to give Him their everything. So here is week 2 of HERE’S THE SIMPLE TRUTH…
“Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep”. Psalm 127:1&2
When I was in my 20’s and 30’s, I had a strong desire to be a songwriter. FAIL. My attempts were feeble at best. I could hardly rhyme two words together, literally. Ask my husband if you don’t believe me. Finally, I just gave up on the idea.
A year and a half ago, as I was reading Psalm 65, I became overjoyed at the vastness of our God. All of the sudden, Psalm 66 came out from me in a literal song in five minutes. (When an entire song comes to you in 5 minutes, you kinda know that it came from God & not from your own skills & talent). Since then, I have written over 100 songs. Most of my songs have come to me quickly. Some have even come to me in my sleep.
God is so amazing! It is true that if you seek the Lord first, He will give you the desires of your heart. I have experienced that promise firsthand. And what’s even better is that He makes it easy. It is God working in you and not your own work. When the power of God is upon you, there is nothing that you can’t do.
