Draw Me Close.....

                        Draw me close, Lord!

    I have been listening to my praise music this evening and again the Lord has shown me in song and word of His mighty power and mercy.  I love Michael W. Smith and each time that I listen to "Let it Rain", I am overtaken with a sense of God's desire for Christians to worship His mightiness.  I am a very passionate person and music truly effects me and when I hear a song that inspires me....I feel like I should bow on my knees and praise Him for His righteousness.
     Psalm 119:2 "Blessed are they that keep his testimonies and that seek him with the whole heart." I am so thankful that He would entrust me with the opportunity to be a mother.  I cannot think of a greater honor than to be a wife and a mother.  I hold this position with great respect.  I also know that beyond the "Forever Family" lies a greater calling and that is for my children....all 5 of them to know Christ as their Savior.  It is the greatest gift....treasure that anyone could ever receive.  My precious King who allows me to wake up each day, puts the breath in my lungs, causes my heart to beat, is the reason that I can continue this Christian walk.  He is the reason for my existence.  
  My prayer tonight is that God will draw me close to him.  It is through him and his precious word that I will climb this mountain and survive this wait and hopefully bring my boys to have a personal relationship with the Lord.  

          ABOVE ALL....He took the fall and thought of me!
      To God be the glory for the great things He hath done!

Listen to Michael W. Smith "Let it Rain" it will inspire you to a place of worship.  I recommend the book of Psalms as a place in the word to bring out the heart of worship.  God is worthy...so very worthy.  My sweet friends.....let us give him the praise that He deserves.  



  1. LOVE that song!!! YES it reminds me of God's covering.....love that!

  2. Oh I get goose bumps EVERY time I hear "Let it Rain" Espcially as the audience starts cheering. It makes my whole body tingle at the awesomeness of God!

  3. Oh, how this song always stirs my soul! No matter where I am! :o) Loving that you are seeking more of Him ~ and that you desire to bless your children with the greatest gift in all of life......a relationship with our loving Heavenly Father!

  4. What a beautiful post! Praying that each one of your precious children will follow Jesus! Please pray for my daughter Jolea to have a closer walk with The Lord! Janet

  5. Music has a profound effect on me as well. In the same realm as the MWS one, I love Mercy Me's "Jesus Send the Rain". It's excellent!

  6. Oh, and I know everyone is asking. Probably too often, but I can't help myself. Any news on travel dates?

  7. I've tried to post before and couldn't, but I'll try again...these systems don't like me! ;)

    I was so moved by Davids' story. I read the story of his need for a family on another blog and was so shaken to my core, that I didn't sleep that night. In my restlessness, I spent the night and most of the next couple of days in prayer for this sweet boy, begging God to send a family who would adore him. I knew his birthday was approaching and didn't have the nerve to do "follow up" to see if he'd found a family. If he had not, I knew it would be tough to "live with." Just heartbreaking. So think of my joy when I shared Davids' story with a friend and she said, "Yeah, I've heard of him and he has a family!" WOW!! I'm so thrilled. God is SO good! Your family has great blessings ahead! May God bestow the very best on all of you!
