Obedience Itch

Itching.  I feel like sometimes God is itching at my heart to do His will. The only way to scratch and itch is with your nails (or a pen), but if you think about it, the only way to scratch a God itch is by obedience to what he asking of you.  You can't itch a scratch with a feather and you can't itch a God scratch by ignoring it.

Simply put, an itch must be scratched the right way. Ya dig?

The past few months I felt a little itch on my heart that I was suppose to post songs on here.  Specifically, me singing some sort of worship song.  My response, "hahaha.. oh... yeah right, okay Lord.. Im sure Ill be doing THAT soon. You re kidding, right?"  And then I realized how thankful I was that barely anyone reads this and my mom has heard me sing a play a billion times.

So...with some restraint I'm posting a little video of me singing a Keith Green song. No clue what the purpose is, but I'd like to be obedient to that itch. I'm no broadway star or performer (As much as I wish I was on broadway)  Or maybe God is just trying to embarrass me?! No, that can't be it ;) I mess up a couple times, but I kinda didn't want to record this again :) I just wanted it to be done.

My prayer is that God will continue to teach and guide me to listen even when I really dont want to.  I pray that I will never grow tired of pressing into God and His goodness.

With Easter approaching I felt this song was appropriate.  I always ask God to reveal the beauty, the hurt, the process of Easter every year. I ask God that each year it would touch me in a beautiful way and this song "Oh Lord, You're beautiful" seemed to speak to me in that way.

I feel that the goodness of the Lord has really been revealed to me this Easter season.

"Oh Lord, you're beautiful. Your face is all I seek
And when your eyes are on this child your grace abound to me.

Oh Lord, please light the fire that once burned bright and clear. Replace the lamp of my first love that burns with holy fear."- Keith Green
