I needed some joy today in my outlook, so I scrolled through Spotify and found The Messiah done by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Then I searched YouTube and found a ton of videos. This production is more than a Christmas program. It's glory come down to earth.

I listened, and The Messiah lifted my spirits. Of course, when I got to the "Hallelujah Chorus," I started to cry. 

That's what happens to me when the Holy Spirit falls on me. I cry.

Tears of joy, gratefulness, humility, conviction, calling. All the things that remind me who I am and who God is.

How great and mighty God is!

Take a listen to this song and pray a little prayer of praise

(I picked their latest world-encompassing virtual version. How cool is that?)

We belong to a victorious God!

Lord God,

You are Wonderful!

You're a Mighty God,

an Everlasting Father,

the Prince of Peace!

You are not swayed by the chaos of this world

or worried about the choices I made in my life.

You lead me,

comfort me,

guide me,

and wait me out when I stray.

You never leave.

You never panic.

You are sure, steadfast, unchanging.

I praise you, God!

I don't understand you,

but I'm thankful for you!


In Jesus' powerful name,
