Favorite Kid Quote of The Day

This one turned my hectic-not-so-good-rough-day into a smile...

[all in one breath]

"So today was my first day at kindergarten and you know what I did at lunch time? I shared my food with Allison because Allison didn't like anything she was eating, and I said to her, Allison we're gonna be best friends because when I don't want my food, I know you'll share with me too. I like to share because it makes people happy. Thank you Jesus because I just love my heart..."

Whom Love Pursued

Recently, I was featured on I gave my testimony via spoken word. It's on YouTube.

WatchMan (Is. 62)
by Terri Simmons

I, will exalt You
I will not be silent, I will not keep quiet
giving You everything
my heart, my ways, my eyes, my hands
I'll exalt You with
my speech, my time, my mind, my actions
its not about personal satisfaction
it's about my agenda being tossed
and answering Your call for the lost
its about You being pleased with me
In You, I will abide
I'll give You my devotion, my pride
my life, and all the stuff inside
I'll surrender my dreams for Your dreams
my goals for obedience, Lord I'm here
I'm here to intercede and watch for Your coming
never slumbering, never ceasing, never stopping
on the frontline
keeping the enemy from breaching
Your kingdom
I, will exalt You with
waiting on the wall, looking for You
standing where no one wants to stand
linked, hand and hand with my brothers and sisters in the faith
alert and listening for Your breath,
waiting for a hint and waiting to be sent
a prayer warrior called for battle
rattle me with Your words, pursue me with Your message
and then I'll take the passage less traveled
taking no rest for myself and accepting it as wealth
when Your kingdom is glorified
and if You were to change my name
change it to Watchman because I want to be first
I thirst to be used by You
to be called by You, to take the truth and share it
to represent the truth and wear it
to not only speak Your cross but bare it
use me to sound the alarm
use me, like a lighthouse in a sea of darkness
and I will raise a banner for the nations
a Watchman on the wall

*something i wrote and performed for a young adult conference called Tidewater I-62 "awakening a student prayer movement" (based on Is. 62)

Wash Me

When I opened my eyes this morning, this song was swirling in my mind. It made me smile to get out of bed and look out the window at a cloudy sky and a few raindrops clinging to my windowsill. It reminded me of how refreshing the presence of the Lord is. So fitting for the day...

I Will Exalt You

Feeling a bit down today... then I remembered to exalt Him. And in doing that, I was quickly shaken of insecurities and taken to a place of total peace and restoration. I love to be in His presence. Here's another one for my worship video series...

My Beloved

Makes me wanna get outta my seat and dance! So fitting for the day...

Eph. 3:17 ...And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
