19 Oct TAPESTRY RELEASED!!! Win a $100 gift card!
Wow. What an incredible day. Kinda feeling like I am having another birthday. Or hey, maybe this is my birthday. 😀 As all the excitement is happening (Tapestry made it to the no. 2 spot for Christian and Gospel “New and Noteworthy” as well as the album has reached no. 15 for the Christian and Gospel charts this morning!), I have found myself brimming with joy (like you would expect). However, in the middle of all that, God has been revealing a verse to me in Deuteronomy that completely puts me in perspective…and I am SO greatful for it. Not trying to put a damper on anything, just seeking truth and the Word of God simply IS.
“Do not say in your heart, after the LORD your God has thrust them out before you, ‘It is because of my righteousness that the LORD has brought me in to possess this land,’ whereas it is because of the wickedness of these nations that the LORD is driving them out before you. Not because of your righteousness or the uprightness of your heart are you going in to possess their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations the LORD your God is driving them out from before you, and that he may confirm the word that the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. Know, therefore, that the LORD your God is not giving you this good land to possess because of your righteousness, for you are a stubborn people. “
Keeping everything in perspective…I am a human, these charts and what not are really fun to see at times, but in all reality, whatever is happening is not because of any good thing I have done, but because of what God has established to happen in my life, and in keeping a promise he made. (I am completely okay with that, even if I wasn’t, it would be the best thing for me).
Anyway…all that being said, THANK YOU for the support of “Tapestry” today, it truly has been an AMAZING day of encouragement. I wish I could encourage you ALL as much as you have encouraged me.
