Worship: The One Who Sees Me

Have you ever felt lonely, scared, angry, confused and hurt all at the same time?  Ever felt like running away from a difficult situation?  I have.  There was a time, several years ago, when I wanted to run – hard and fast – from life as I knew it.  I had just birthed three babies in three  and a half years.  Then, to everybody’s surprise – especially mine – my husband got a promotion that moved our young family across the country to a place where we knew no one. I had two babies in diapers and one “big boy” …

WORSHIP: El Elyon

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

Psalm 91:1-2

Worship: My Strength, My Song

Several months ago I went to Dallas to be interviewed on LIFE Today (with James and Betty Robison) and to write a few songs for my next CD. The genre of songs for this project is worship. I’m prayerfully writing these songs so that they might be sung by the church for the glory of God. I’m asking the LORD to breathe an anointing on each word and note so that the songs might be used to connect the heart of worshipers to the heart of the worthy One. Here’s one of my new favorites…

Worship: Holy Adonai

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters. Who may ascend the hill of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. He will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God his Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, O God of Jacob.

Psalm 24:1-6, NIV

Amen…

Broken into Beautiful

GiGs,

I’m humbled to share this interview that airs today on the Life Today TV program. Please join me in asking the LORD to bring many hearts to healing, hope and restoration through this testimony of redemption. “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!” (Psalm 107:2)

You can watch the program online here: http://lifetoday.org/video/from-broken-to-beautiful/

Feel free to share it with someone who might need to hear this word of hope.

In His Grip of Grace,

Gwen

Speak, LORD

May we never stop inviting the LORD to speak into our hearts.

Lord, please forgive us for the times when life gets so noisy that we forget to listen.
In Jesus Name, amen.

With A Little Help From Our Friends…

Today is a big day. Really big. CAPITAL LETTER BIG!! ;) Why? Today our new, interactive GiG devotional book, TRUSTING GOD, A GIRLFRIEND IN GOD FAITH ADVENTURE releases. Woohoo! (Happy dance with us!)

God called Sharon, Mary and I to write this. We believe that the message of this book will bring women to a deeper place of faith because it is stuffed with Scriptures and stories that are purposed to connect the heart of each reader to the heart of God.
Because you are a friend to this ministry: we do life together. So that makes you the best people

My Uncluttered Prayer

There always seem to be a million voices vying for my attention. Can you relate? True confessions: I often choose good things instead of the Best thing. Instead of the Best One.

I wish it weren’t the case, but it is. I get easily distracted and frazzled. I never seem to satisfy my to-do list and I struggle with time management. It surprises me continually that God would choose to use a cluttered woman such as me. But His grace abounds. It reaches my most unfocused, unproductive heart places. Grace covers my mess and uncovers His faithfulness.

God’s loving goodness …

I’m Such a Restoration Project

Hi GiGs!

Gwen here. There is a new lyric video for a song called “Restore” that I wanted to share with you. I co-wrote it with two very talented friends: Sue Smith and Carl Cartee. The song was inspired by Psalm 80, in which the psalmist continually repeats the phrase, “Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.”

It’s a prayer I continually pray… because I’m in constant need of the grace of God. I’m a total restoration project! And He is a generous God – constantly willing to listen to hearts that are humbled …

Take My Heart Captive Video

The devotion today is about the itchy pest of temptation. In order to be strong when we face temptations, we need God’s help. We are able to resist and refocus when we align our hearts and desires to the heart and will of God. That’s what this song is about. Hope it blesses!

Yes, Lord. Please take my heart captive. Amen

Amen?

Where does this song find you today?

Blessed to be doing life with you,

Gwen…
