I'm Singing!

When I first started blogging back in November 2007, somehow I found Susan over at Forever His. She has become a dear friend and I cannot wait to meet her beautiful self in person.

Well, one day last year on a morning visit to her blog, I listened to a song she had playing by artist Kari Jobe called The More I Seek You. (It's track #3 on the play list on the side bar on Susan's blog.) While listening to Kari's gorgeous voice sing, I got out of my desk chair and found myself on my knees with my hands raised with tears covering my face and neck as I worshipped Jesus Christ so deeply. By the time I went to stand I didn't feel like the same women who had knelt.

I bought two CD's immediately, gave one away and subscribed to Kari Jobe's E-Newsletter. I just received it today and found this video have below. I felt so blessed. It's so cool and such an encouragement that no matter what is going on in your life to praise God.

If you can, take a moment to watch this. It's not a singing video, instead it's a video feauturing people like you and me. I wanted to share it with you and after watching it, will you come back over here to my blog and share in the comments why you are singing. I'll put why I am singing in the comments too. If you are not a blogger, you can still leave your reason for singing, just select Anonymous.

Ble blessed and if you have never visited Susan or Kari, I encourage you to do so...both women will fill your heart with nothing but the love they have for our Jesus!

Come by on Friday, March 27th as I have a giveaway of another book and a story that I just must share with you all!
~Many Blessings~

I haven't watched the video yet as I type this, but I am already singing as my sweetie hooked me up with Kari Jobe last week and she has an amazing voice and I'm hooked! I will check out her page, and I agree with you on Susan...such a blessing. The just reading your comment above and the fact we're doing Micca's book...just think of the possibilities ahead for your two grandbabies and what God has in store for them. It's reason to sing. And to Alivia...yes, you do sweetie! Love ya both! P xo

My husband, who works as a nurse at a local hospital, told me today that the hospital lost a lot of money in the stock market, and are putting a freeze on anyone working overtime.
He also told me today that he wants me to start looking for a good job. Not to worry about what we will do with the kids if I go back into the work force, but just to get a job and we will figure out things from there.
I am scared.

But I'm singing.

Love you,

I struggle with depression, anxiety and fear but God assures me i am not alone in my struggle. He is with me, He is for me, He will never leave me or forsake me, and because He is victorious i am victorious too so i am singing.

Susan said...

Ahhhh, you are such a sweet heart Leila!!

I feel the same EXACT way about you! You are one of the very first blogs I added to my sidebar.

After I read your testimony I immediately FEEL IN LOVE with you!

Yes, we WILL meet. You are a precious sister in Christ to me.

You are also one of my VERY favorite writers. Gosh, if you wrote a book, I'd buy a CASE and give them out.

OK, enough mushy stuff, you get the point, I adore you!!

Thanks for sharing this link.

Blessings to you♥

PS Give my girls some sugar from me!!
