Made Me Glad

My MOST favorite praise and worship song is hands down, "Made Me Glad," performed by Hillsong.

No matter when this song comes on, I stop what I am doing, and belt out a tune worthy of a Grammy....I'm talking hands raised, mouth wide open, and eyes!  I've caught other drivers looking from time to time, and I don't care how ridiculous I look....this song is my heart's cry!

For you make me glad by your deeds, LORD; I sing for joy at what your hands have done. Psalm 92:4 (NIV)

Can't you just shout at the magnitude of this scripture?  Think of all the things you know that only God did, and only He brought you out of....are you shouting now?!

I'm reading a new devotional, God is Able,  by Priscilla Shirer.  Have you ever read any of her books?  I've read I believe all of them, and if I could dream up one of my favorite Saturdays, it would be Darlene Zschech leading praise and worship, Priscilla Shirer sharing the good news, and Beth Moore closing us out in the! 

The book is based off of Ephesians 3:20-21;
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

I'm sure if you're anything like me, you've read this scripture hundreds of times, but you may not ever think about the magnitude of it all.  How the God of the universe, in all His power and might, can DO anything that we could even imagine.  Mind blowing isn't it?  I love how Priscilla says that it is human nature for us to toil and fret over a problem, even a tiny one, before we hand it over to the all powerful, all knowing Father.....anyway, I don't want to give away too much of the book, just know that it is a must read if you're dealing with an "it."  (The "it" is whatever worries you, bothers you, or whatever it is that you think God can't fix).

And in the off chance that you have not heard "Made Me Glad" in real life, or just want to hear it again, here's the video!  Enjoy!!!


P.S.  I am finished with the script for the HC post, but the pics are acting up, so it's still not published...I'll get it up soon!
