Faithful Fridays ~ Whisper.

Hi everyone!  This post was written and scheduled in advance, but as you're reading this, I'm in the south, visiting with the friends I told you about, probably having tons of fun with the girls (a heaven of hair to fix in pigtails and braids!) and getting ready to go to a really neat mountain park.


I started Faithful Fridays so that Christians could have one designated day (although, of course, we shouldn't have to keep it to one day) a week to share something from their Faith--a prayer request, answered prayer, Bible verse, song, poem, or just something God's laid on your heart. Just grab the button above (which unfortunately doesn't link to my blog automatically, you'll have to put the link), make your post, then leave a comment letting me know you participated! I'm trying to figure out how to get a link-up on here. Until then, I will have the links to other blogs that participate in Faithful Fridays here on my posts.

My mama participates on her blog, Country Girl at Home...

Ms. Patty participates on her blog, Blessings Beyond...

Ms. Retha participates on her blog, Retha's Rambles...

and Rachel participates on her blog, Stand Out Don't Fit In.

How many times do we worry about something?  Or let our mind wander off to something it shouldn't?  Or fail at keeping Jesus at the center of our thoughts?  I know I do it a lot, and those are things I'm constantly working at.  Seriously.  I'm also guilty of being completely un-cheerful when asked to do something I don't want to do.  I can get really irritated really fast.  Human nature, huh?

But we have to keep working at it.  I've mentioned Sarah Young's Jesus Calling Devotional (for kids) on my blog many times before--I absolutely loved it!  Something that is frequent in her devotionals is the advice to just whisper Jesus's name.  There's power in His name.  We know that, don't we?  But often I guess we (I) just forget that whispering His name can draw our thoughts and minds back to Him.  

So here's my advice for you today: dealing with something?  No matter what it is, just take a moment to sit back and whisper Jesus's name.  

At Your name
Mountains shake and crumble
At Your name
The oceans roar and tumble
At Your name
Angels will bow
The earth will rejoice
Your people cry out

At Your name
The morning breaks
In Your glory
At Your name
Creation sings Your story
At Your name
Angels will bow
The earth will rejoice
Your people cry out

~At Your Name by Phil Wickham (first and second verses)
