what i am doing at the moment...

busy with THIS as a project
listening to THIS ...water for my soul
listening to THIS for total, complete and divine inspiration and jubilance

i am in the process of working on the project and to me its so much more than a project. i have made albums for my mom, my husband, my children, myself and for my friends but THIS album is for God. it came into my heart to create this album about Joh 10:10 A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of. (message) and the amplified say The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). the theme for the contest is CELEBRATING LIFE IN COLOR. this is the life i am living and celebrating.

then 3 more things happened. a friend gave me Psa 76:11 Vow and pay to the Lord your God; let all who are round about Him bring presents to Him Who ought to be [reverently] feared. and our dear pastor talked about giving to God is not always in the tithe and the offering... but whatever God requires. and i KNEW then that i want to bring this offering to Him. and you know what? i dont care if i am placed LAST in this competition, i know i am pleasing Him. Last night, we had the most amazing talk with Pastor Stead and he was talking about the 2 schools of thought in the christian walk. one school says that i will not move without a clear word from God and the 2nd school says that i will not get the clear word from God until i move. i love this. Abraham was a scholar of school 2 and so am i. i pray for Gods will to be executed in my life EVERYDAY and then i do what is in my heart to do. and you know what? God directs my steps. i wanted to enter another competition and started eagerly making pages and clearly the next day i felt the Holy Spirit saying to me to NOT do it. OK. so i didn't. i understand Mat 11:29 more and more: Walk with me and work with me--watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. i don't know exactly where i am going. but i know the promises i have received. i know the passion and desires of my heart. i know the true north direction that i am suppose to be going... and i am enjoying the journey.
Psa 75:6 For not from the east nor from the west nor from the south come promotion and lifting up. it's up to God to make it happen. BUT i have to be moving and doing. wow, i just had to share this, it's so liberating and uplifting to know.

bless you. happy going!
