I see cooking as an opportunity to listen to music. Yesterday's favorite was Jesus Culture's "Come Away" and I couldn't stop listening to it. Looking up the entire lyrics right now I'm like, wait, that's it? There are only 9 lines and they spoke directly to my heart (granted it's a live recording that's almost 8 minutes long with some prayer thrown in there).
Come away with Me, come away with Me
It's never to late, it's not too late
It's not too late for you
I have a plan for you, I have a plan
It's gonna be wild
It's gonna be great
It's gonna be full of Me
Open up your heart and let Me in
Who wouldn't want to hear these words spoken to them? Especially from the loving, sovereign God of the universe?? I was getting so pumped up just listening to these words over and over again. If that doesn't speak to your heart I don't know what will*. Whether you can relate to an adventure or a love story (or both!), God invites us to follow him to the craziest, awesomest life full of his glory!
Our Lord is so good, praise God!
11 "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13
*Actually, I'm positive if this doesn't speak to your heart God has something else in mind =]
