Keeping Kingdom Minded

Today we had the pleasure of taking my husband’s parents with us to our new church (yes we have decided to make the move to Victory for sure). It was a really nice time of fellowship that I’m so glad we got to share.

The sermon focused on Ephesians 4 and being Kingdom minded. It was quite refreshing to me to hear a pastor strongly preach on the fact the regardless the traditions or denomination we choose, as long as we are all Christ followers, we are all one body. He spoke of the coming year with excitement over the unknown blessings, challenges, and changes that God would bring for the church and each of us individually.

I’m excited too. I just have a feeling that some really big kingdom movements are coming down the pike in my life, and hopefully in yours as well. Hoping you all had a blessed holiday season and even more blessed new year.

Then Sings My Soul is a collection of 150 classic and dearly loved hymns. This book includes the full hymnal style sheet music and verses as well as a devotional style background story for each hymn. The hymns are broken into five sections: Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Patriotic, and Other favorites. With comprehensive indexes, finding your favorite song is made simple.

I have to be really honest. When this book arrived I was intimidated. I’m not a musician. I have no talent musically but have always enjoyed music. When I saw how extensive the book was I honestly doubted I’d be able to get thru it. I couldn’t have been more wrong! There is something so beautiful about understanding where a song came from then reading the words again. I was truly moved by so many of them. If you have ever wanted to getter a deeper insight to some of the classic hymns, this book is a great way to do that. Also, it would make a great gift for any music lovers in your life.
