Blessed be Your Name

 As a worship leader it is humbling to sit back in a service. To be completely candid with you .. We critique, we think about all the technical things. Its just hard to sit back and worship sometimes. This morning Jeromy from the band FFH came to lead in my place. As I sat in the back of the service I tried to just rest in the Spirit and soak in the music. Which he did fantastic as always but the best part was when he talked about his 4 year old little girl. She like mine tends to sing songs over and over again all day long and he spoke about a time he was sick
and was suppose to have been playing ( he is a fulltime musician) and his little girl was singing "you give and take away, you give and take away, my heart will choose to say, Lord Blessed be Your name"... A popular line from the song Blessed Be your name.
As the tears began to well up that was the most real moment for me. Nolan is not mine to have. My family is not mine it is God's so why am I anxious?
I am so thankful for the music this morning but more thankful for the arm around my shoulder that said "Just rest in Him today Ash, tomorrow is going to be a hard day"
My earthly rock.. my husband the one who knows me best comforted my soul.

So tonight there are many thoughts running through my head
but with my hands lifted high all I can hear is this

Blessed be Your Name
When Im found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness 
Blessed Be Your Name

Every blessing You pour out ill
Turn back to Praise
When the darkness closes in Lord
Still I will Say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your Name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious Name

I just want to praise him tonight for what he has done so far. Moving in peoples lives through this story. Changing mine to want to worship him on a deeper level.
So tonight I just want to praise my Jesus! Because I know he is with me.
"Fear not for I am with You" Isaiah 41:10

    Hope you and family are doing well. Thanks so much to you and the band for performing my favorite song yesterday... The Revelation Song... you guys did an outstanding job. I am use to hearing you do an amazing job singing that, but was very impressed with the young lady that sang it yesterday as well. It is always a pleasure to listen to you guys. Please consider doing a concert at the church sometime, where we can all enjoy the music for an hour or so straight. That would be cool. Come in and get some refreshments... sit down.. and enjoy the band for 1-2 hours. I would pay $$$ for a ticket ... you guys could raise some money for something or someone special in need. Take care and thanks again.. Andre'
