I am running up that hill.

To watch Doctor Who or to work-out. I can't do both at the same time. I just tried on swimming suits (I found two I like! WOOT!), and not to judge myself by the mirror but...I am out of shape. Personal Trainers are not out of shape. I, myself, Jenny, do not want to be out of shape. So I am going to work-out. Then tomorrow my family is going hiking, because that is what we love. Operation Get Moving has commenced.

Before I go do that I wanted to share this song that I just heard and loved.

Did you hear that? That was my sigh of content. One of the things I like about secular music is that it reveals to me the heart of God in such a unique way. Take this song for example. It tells of someone's broken mindset of their life and how they want God should help them. The lyrics are so honest and free from glitz and glamor. I know that God loves this person. I know that God hears this person's song. I know that God sees their heart and what their motives are. I believe that God does not want me to hide myself from what this person is saying, but listen and seek to see him or her as God sees them. I am letting my heart listen to this song with God so that I ache with Him for this person and whoever identifies with the song. I know that God is way more able than me to listen to what this person is saying without judging them for it, and I want to be like that too.

That may seem like just an excuse to listen to secular music to you, and you can think what you may. I'm cool with that. If God has asked you not to listen to secular music, I'm cool with that too.

  1. The good, the bad, and the ugly...God sees it, hears it, and knows it ALL ALL THE TIME and He is every answer to it ALL 'cause God is the God of ALL comfort and ultimately in ALL ways is the ALL we ALL seek.
    2Cr 1:3 NASB - Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of ALL comfort,
    1Cr 15:28 NASB - When ALL things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be ALL in ALL.
