This morning at church, I sang the song by Hillsong that I wrote about the other day. I was very nervous – like I get anytime I do a solo. But I knew that God was telling me to sing this song today. The praise dancers were scheduled to dance, but I found out 2 days ago that they weren’t dancing so it opened a way for me to sing.
So I prayed a lot last night and this morning to smush the butterflies that try to tickle my throat. And today before church started I was burning up. Someone asked me if I was blushing – but I was just so hot my face was red. It was like the Holy Spirit was all over me. I had to take my sweatshirt off.
So we start service and when we got to the scripture reading, it was Psalm 40:1-5. And I knew right then that God had orchestrated this day because the blog I wrote the other day about this song – I ended with Psalm 40:3. “And He put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God.”
And there it was again! WOW! So Amazing!
So I sang the song. I wasn’t nervous like I thought I’d be. I even at the end invited the congregation to sing with me and we sang “My heart burns” together. The same 3 words that brought me into His presence brought them into His presence today!
As soon as I got back to my seat, I got chills all over and had to put my sweatshirt back on. It was crazy! It was like the Holy Spirit had me all heated up… literally burning for Him just till the song ended. Just made this song even more special to me! Praise Him! Burn for Him! Be the sacrifice! Holy and acceptable to Him!
