Good music, Good vibes.

One of the the few things I enjoy in life is sitting at the computer and discovering good, clean music. One of my all time favorite bands is Mumford & Sons, have you heard of them? (I bet you have.) They are absolutely amazing! And I promise you, if you like them you will love these sisters. I'm pretty sure if Mumford & Sons were women, they would be The Staves. One of my all time favorite instruments is the ukulele, and look at that..it's used in this song. Unfortunately, I cannot sing to save my life but if I did..oh how I would have loved to have a jam session with friends and just sit and play and sing.
But till the day the good Lord decides to bless me with a amazing voice, I will continue singing because well.."Every noise is a joyful noise!"

The Lord is My Rock, My Fortress, My Salvation.

Do you ever have those days where you just want to give up on all things that is life?
It seems that it would be easier to just leave everything behind then to continue forward and make yourself known.

"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. Be alert and sober minded. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour." -1 Peter 5:7-8

Wow, what a powerful verse. "Cast ALL your anxiety on Him because He cares for you..." He. cares. for. me. What a concept that I have trouble understanding at times. God. The Creator of the universe, cares...for me!? What is this crazy concept? I'm a sinner and only human. Why would such a perfect and magnificent God care for someone like me? But that's just it.. Why wouldn't He care for me? The Bible screams of His love for me, and not only me..for all of us! He wants us to search Him, day and night.

So next time you seem to be completely overwhelmed and don't know what to do with yourself..remember this:

"But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved"-Ephesians 2:4-5
