I have always loved the song, “Show Me Your Glory” by Jesus Culture. Kim Walker Smith does a phenomenal job singing this song from her heart.
I can always turn on that song and totally shift my mindset from discouraged to “NOT anymore”.
I realize it’s not about me and what I can and can not do.
It’s all about Him.
He is my everything when my anything has gone wrong.
I can put that song on and completely forget about what was pressing me down and discouraging my thoughts.
This comes to my mind and I write these thoughts down:
“And be not drunk with wine but be filled with the Spirit”….
This may not be the best comparison but it’s an escape that doesn’t have a hangover but rather a makeover.
18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Wow!!! As I look it up I notice what comes after the drinking part!!!!
“Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and making melody in your heart!!!”
That’s exactly what I do when I am playing the song and listening to the words pour over my heart!!! Then it leads to giving thanks and focusing on what I have rather than what I don’t have.
I realize that I was created to worship Him and when I take a sip of that truth; I am undone.
Drunk: being in a temporary state in which one’s physical and mental faculties are impaired by an excess of alcoholic drink (take the drink and set it aside, instead replace it with:
A Sip of His Love towards me
All the things in me that keep me from who I was created to be are loosed and I am free. Free to be shown His Glory and free to be where I belong. Free to be loved by Him.
Become intoxicated with His Love and watch what the New Year brings to you and your family.
Pour a glass and take a sip of of His Glory!❤️
