I hope you had an awesome weekend. Are we not grateful for the gift of a new day? Regardless of it being a Monday and all hehe but wait a minute, who even brought this idea that Mondays have to be a day to sulk over or be frustrated about? I know I certainly am grateful for each Monday , it makes me understand that God still has use of me to gift me with a new day, a fresh start; a new opportunity to take a step further into purpose.
Today, unfortunately I’m not bringing you a playlist but one song that has been on my lips and in my head everyday since the first time I heard it about 3 weeks ago. It is HOLY SPIRIT by Kari Jobe ft her hubby Cody Carnes. I’d probably gush over how beautiful it is that they make music together and are actively pursuing purpose together another time but seriously??? How beautiful is that huh? Serving purpose and revealing God’s Glory each moment with your best friend ? #goals sighhhhhhh
*Jewie you need to focus, you are here to talk about their music lol*
Okay I’m back hehe but like I tell people close to me, I never go looking for music. Music finds me! When I say that, I’m saying the Holy Spirit presents me music exactly when I need it. This song; Holy Spirit found me at the right time. I needed the reminder that God’s presence is the absolute reward, not the things He gives us, not the things He does for us but HIMSELF;His presence is what I should long for. It should be what I pray for, to be more aware of His presence and be overcome by it. The things God gives us are nice in all honesty especially because they are free (I mean who doesn’t like free things) and mind blowing but beyond those, is experiencing Him. Where your heart is full, your shame is undone, you are flooded with His Peace and overwhelmed by Joy. There is LITERALLY nothing worth more than that!
This song reminded me of what is and would forever be important. I say it found me at the right time because I was losing focus, getting distracted and drawing back in fellowship with the Father but this song brought my attention to it before I had completely lost touch with Him and myself in the process. Being so blessed by it, I decided to share my new found gem with you. I hope you have the experience I did listening to it or even better.
Enjoy your Monday! Until next week….Stay blessed. Xoxo
