Jesus, Jesus, At Your Feet

Just as a warning, I had some free time this morning, so there are lots of videos on here.  I wanted to share some songs that God has used in my life over the past year to either help heal my heart or show me who I am in Him.

Laying My Life Down...
"Here at Your feet, I lay my future down.  All of my dreams, I give to You now.  And I find peace, I find peace.
Jesus, Jesus, at Your feet; oh to dwell and never leave.  Jesus, Jesus, at Your feet; there is no where else for me."

After such a rough year, I have truly experienced Jesus' healing, peace, and joy in my heart and life. 

I have learned so much about who He has created me to be for His glory and my heart is becoming more like His.  I have a lloonnnggg way to go, but that's okay.  We all do :).  We won't be "there" until we are with Him in heaven.  I am okay with that. 

A year ago, I thought I knew what I wanted, but I didn't ask God what His plan was for my (his) life.  After a year of no choice but letting go, I am finally at peace.  I have spent my whole life trying to control everything.  I still struggle with it, but I'm thankful that God has made it clear that trying to control things doesn't do a bit of good. 
I am finally content with where God has us in life because I know that He has a plan for HIS glory.  I know that He has orchestrated our circumstances so that He can use us, and I am humbled.  I don't know why He would choose to use me, but I am so thankful that He would allow us to be a part of His work.

Knowing Him and Making Him Known
If you know Him, think about this:  the CREATOR of the world has chosen YOU to be a part of HIS work.  How amazing is that?  He could do it all without us, but He chooses to use us. 

If you don't know Him, won't you ask Him into your heart and life?  It won't be easy, but you will have a relationship with the CREATOR of the world!  He loves you more than any person could ever love you.  He's full of grace, mercy, love, peace, and joy.  He wants to use YOU to do His work.  He wants a close, intimate relationship with You.  We are all sinners, yet He loves us unconditionally and wants to change our lives.  He has died for those sins that we commit daily so that we don't have to. 
Romans 10:9-10 "...because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved."

Here are several songs that bring me to my knees in worship.  Spend some time worshipping our Creator and Lord.

Hosanna in the Highest!

We don't talk often, but you continually inspire me, Courtney. I too have struggled with control issues my whole life and feel like I am finally making head way and letting God have the wheel. I'm glad you are happy. Your family is beautiful!
