Heart and Flesh

My soul longs, even faints for, the courts of the Lord.
My soul longs, even faints for, the courts of the Lord.

Oh my heart and flesh cry out for the living God. 
Oh my heart and flesh cry out for the living God.

And I am satisfied, satisfied in You, Lord.
And I would trade it all for one day in Your courts.
Lord, I am satisfied. 
Oh I am satisfied in You.

Oh my heart and flesh cry out for the living God.
 "Heart and Flesh" by Starfield

That's just like me. And the people next to me laughing. 


You know how some people look ridiculous singing and dancing in their cars? Well. I'm one of those people. I sing and dance in my car a lot.
A lot.
So much that I got my windows tinted (probably a little too dark) so that people couldn't see me singing and dancing in my car.  I like to think that since I lead worship every week, people shouldn't make fun of my singing in the car. I'm practicing for Jesus. 
But my dancing: that's fair game to laugh at.

The song above was my latest inspiration for my criminal dancing in the car. I love the simplicity of the song. And it reminded me of a conversation with Jim this week about his upcoming sermon. It's titled "It All Counts" and he's going to talk about how we make every day moments count in our relationship with God, not just the hour devotion. I loved talking about it with him because I know how much my soul, my joy, my happiness and my peace depend on my time with the Lord and Him filling me. But sometimes, honestly, I don't have two hours to sit down and read my Bible everyday. So this song reminded me that I desperately need the Lord. And my conversation with Jim reminded me how easy it is to invite the Lord into every conversation and every thought.
Last week, Landon led us in worship and he did a fantastic job! Here are the songs we sang on September 29th:
"Like a Lion" by David Crowder
"Desert Song" by Hillsong
"Awakening" by Hillsong or Chris Tomlin
and for offering we sang an awesome song called "White Flag" by Chris Tomlin.

Word on the street (or in my office) is that we'll be singing "White Flag" more often in worship so drop by iTunes and pick it up! 
This coming Sunday is going to be awesome. I can feel it my bones. The worship is going to be different and fun and Jim's message is going to be great. So if you ever wanted to invite someone, it won't be like this funny scene: (click here)

Have a good week!
