Have you ever felt as though everyone wants or needs your attention? When you finally get alone, do all their voices in your head seem to dominate your ability to be still? Sometimes you just want to scream, “Would everyone up there just take a seat and be quiet!”
Then when you gather a sense of stillness you fight exhaustion?
I tell you what I do in those moments. I worship in song. As I do my attention turns to God, and I am able to focus on the audience of One.
I’ll pull an old hymnal off the shelf and look for what song jumps off the page. If everyone is asleep, I’ll go to a private room in the house and sing. If you don’t have a hymnal, search your heart for a familiar song that you know, or Google works great. You may also play a song you can sing with.
Before you know it, you will be raptured by the worship into stillness. God dwells in the praises of His people.
We are so blessed to have a God whose worship blesses us right back. Sing, and you will be still and know He is God!
Serve the Lord with gladness, come before His presence with singing. Psalm 100:2 NKJV
You will keep
him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3 NKJV

Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others.
I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile.
Blessings to you and yours,
