Feelings pouring out.....

I'm not sure about you...but, when I am singing to the Lord....or, when I am listening to songs that praise Him...there are times where I can't help but cry. Now, this type of weeping is not out of sadness...but, filled with overwhelming joy and unexplainable happiness.

As I was driving home today (all 7 minutes of it) I heard one of my favorite songs on the's by Audio Adrenaline called "Get Down". This song not only rocks-my-socks-off...but, today....made me weep for joy as I sang along with the radio. "I get down, He lifts me up...I get down, He lifts me up...I get down, He lifts me up....." By the time the chorus gets started...WATCH OUT, cause I am-a-jammin'!!! haha...

Singing those words today hit me....they hit me the best way imaginable. Even though I've always known my Lord loves me...there were times when I have felt alone even though I knew He was always by my side. Something in that song today struck a cord in my heart, and it felt amazing.

Then...when they sang these joyful tears streamed down my face with purpose:

"In your weakness He is stronger
In your darkness He shines through
When you're crying He's your comfort
When you're all alone He's carrying you"

OH MY GOODNESS...Today has been a day just FILLED with love from my Lord and Savior...I don't know how to explain it clearly...I truly cannot express my feelings with words....haha...I would say that it frustrates me not being able to articulate it...but, it doesn' get it.......I know you do....... :)

YES!!! It happens to me all the time, but most of all I'm REALLY glad they dim the lights during Silent Night on Christmas Eve because there are tears STREAMING down my cheeks! I love your posts - every single one of them makes me smile, but today's made me smile all the way down into my heart!
