Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers –
I just had one of the most amazing memories. I love the idea of memories, they are like pages to the scrapbook of our lives. So I was listening to Aaron Shust’s song “Take Over”. I love that song. As I began to listen to the song, my mind went down memory lane. I remember hearing that song probably 3 years ago and I fell in love with this simple prayer written to music. I remember being at work, I worked at a bakery then, and this song came on. I began to sing at the bakery. I bet the customers thought there was something wrong with me. My hips swayed to the music and I poured my heart into the song. I was working with my best friend “G” that day and I bet I freaked him out with my karaoke performance of that song. In that moment, I felt free! I felt free from the pressures of life, from my current circumstances and from the pressures of being perfect- in that moment I released my cares to God and asked Him to take over me. So today, I pray the same prayer- that God will continually take over me. I pray that His Spirit will breathe, move and speak through me, that I will be a vehicle of life for someone else. Lord, take over me!
Until next time,
