Whatever You're Doing ...

There is a song out by Sanctus Real that says this:

Whatever You're doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but somehow there's peace
It's hard to surrender to what I can't see,
But I'm giving in to something Heavenly...

If you have not heard this song you need to rush right on over to youtube and watch this video and listen to this is amazing. My cousin played me this song last night and it was salve to my hurting, waiting soul. I can so identify with the part that says it feels like chaos inside, but somehow there's peace. God is moving and working, this I know. It's just the process that is so hard sometimes.

A very sweet blog friend sent me a card last week and she wrote at the bottom Isaiah 40:31. Not the whole verse just "Isaiah 40:31". So I picked up my Bible and went to looking. That was the first of many times in the last couple of weeks that God has brought this verse along in my life, at times very unexpectedly. I love that. Well it is very familiar to most of you I'm sure, but I would like to "quote" it out of The Message. Oh how I do love me some Message Bible these days. More of that salve I've been talking about.

"But those who wait upon GOD get fresh strength.
They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don't get tired,
They walk and don't lag behind."

Have you ever thought about soaring? What that would feel like to be completely free? I've wondered, and yet at the same time, I've wondered if I'd be scared and forget to flap my wings (yes, that is another post =) anyway.....

I love this verse and the thought of getting "fresh strength." Don't you just long for a refreshing sometimes, I know I sure do. And speaking of refreshing...

It is just so good to be back to church. I can't tell you the joy it gives me to be able to sit in His Presence in that to my soul and yes salve as well.


Dakota sang so beautifully at SWCL on Saturday. He decided not to go to districts because of the play and he said it would just be to much, and it would. But boy, I'm telling you, he would so be rocking districts if he was going!!! I took our camera, but it was so quiet in there I wasn't sure the judge would let us tape, so I didn't, but let me just tell ya, he sang just beautiful!!

I hope you all have a Blessed and Beautiful Monday,


  1. LOVE that song... just heard it on the radio! We went & saw Sanctus Real a few weeks ago & when they sang that song... I just cried... powerful words!

    And wow... fresh strength... ready to fight some it!

  2. Would Dak like you video him and post a portion of his performance?

    I'd love to hear him sometime.

    Have a great day.

  3. I just love that song. Its one of my favorites right now!

  4. That's one of my favorite songs. Sanctus Real was just in Mountain Home a few weeks ago... some of our church went.

    Glad to hear Dak did well. Would've loved hearing him, though.

    (My word verification is "mickie". Ha)
