Oct - A Child's Happiness

As a small child on Sunday and Wednesday nights I would walk to the 1st Baptist church up the road from our home. On Wednesday nights the class for girls was called GA's (Girls in Action) and we studied missions in a fun and interactive way. We were encouraged to choose a place to learn about and pray for. I chose Uganda. I can't remember what other places were suggested for us to choose from. I couldn't have been much older than 9 or 10 but I was drawn to pray for and learn about Uganda. My parents did not go to church but they were not opposed to letting me go if I chose to walk there. Since those days Uganda has always held a special place in my heart. I hope you enjoy this video with children of all ages from Uganda.

The notes say they are orphans and other vulnerable children from that area. Lyrics are posted below so turn up your volume and praise with them as they sing :)

LYRICS Verse 1 Your love is deep Deeper than my fear It’s wide, wider than my doubt It’s all, all that I will ever need You love is High Higher than my hopes It’s strong, Stronger than my past It’s Bold, All that I will ever need Chorus Oh, You got me singing, Oh Let your love burst forth Jesus let you love burst forth Sing until the hold world echoes, echoes To the sound of your love again Bridge We’re dancing to the beat of Your love, Your love We’re dancing to the beat of Your love, Your love We’re dancing to the beat Dancing to the beat of your love, your love Produced by Watoto Childcare Ministries Directed by David Rubie

In Jewish culture, Proverbs 31 is a song of praise! Rachel Held Evans shared this in her blog post  3 Things You Might Not Know About the Proverbs 31 Woman:
“I first learned this from my Jewish friend Ahava who told me that in her culture, it’s not the women who memorize Proverbs 31, but the men… They memorize it, Ahava said, to sing it as a song of praise to the women in their lives—their wives, daughters, sisters, mothers, and friends. Ahava’s husband sings Proverbs 31 to her at every Sabbath meal. “
 Not only do Jewish men sing Proverbs 31 over their wives to praise them for being such wonderful Godly women, but Jewish women also use the passage to praise each other as well!
According to Rachel’s newfound Jewish friends, the phrase “a virtuous woman who can find?” (Proverbs 31:10) comes from the Hebrew word “eshet chayil,” which can be translated as “woman of valor.”
I found this video (and the above information) while searching for a song, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

June 2019 - Be Strong Joshua 1:9

Fear, ain't nothing but liar
When doubt comes knocking at your door
On your knees, you'll find peace and
You don't need to be afraid

Joshua 1:9 (KJV)

 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
