Have you ever thought that the Lord just may have a special surprise message just for you in the worship music you listen to?

When I was having my quiet time with the Lord, I was prompted to turn on some worship music. I put it on shuffle and as I was listening, I thought "write down one phrase from the song that stands out to you." So I grabbed my journal and pen. The phrase was "Will you walk into the room?"

Immediately in my mind I saw the Lord standing in the doorway with a big smile! I heard him say "Your invitation is my command!" It made me think of Genie from Aladdin and I returned his smile. Then I heard him say "you invite me to come and I'm there! There is no other joy than to be invited to join you in your day!" Then I asked Him How can I bring you joy Lord? "I'm here Sandra, It's my greatest joy to sit with you. To talk or just be still. Let me Walk into the room, your greatest joy will come when you let me come, in the beauty and fullness of who I am. I am like an unwrapped gift. You can hold it, enjoy it's beauty or open it up and see all that it is, that I am."

So...today I encourage you to grab your journal and pen, (maybe a tissue because this Self Discovery Journaling can be cathartic) and put on some worship music. Just enjoy it until a word or phrase jumps out to you. Write it down and see what happens next!

If this process blessed you, please like it and share it with your friends. I would also love to hear what fun discovery you had! You can tell me all about it in the Comments below. Blessings!

As I sit here looking at this picture of my beautiful Grandson and his equally beautiful mother, I contemplate that there are no words to describe the kind of love I feel. Multiple senses are immediately engaging. A heaviness in my chest that longs to hold him yet an overwhelming feeling of joy just to look at his sweet little face. As I look at those adorable cheeks, I can feel his equally indescribably soft skin against mine. It leads to that oh so sweet smell that we all love! And then all the images of his precious smile, his laugh and his Mr. serious expressions. The light in his eyes when daddy and mommy talk to him and he responds with his very important vocabulary that we don't yet understand.

It's a love that has no words to describe but would drive you to do anything in your power to make sure they have everything they need to succeed in life. Have every opportunity to do the things that will bring them joy. You would gladly take there place if you could keep them from life's bumps and bruises, pain, heartache or disappointment.

But the truth is...we never can. Only Jesus can do all that, just as only he can truly understand that overwhelming, indescribable Love!
