here i am

God has shown up big around here lately; proving His faithfulness and reminding me of His power. My oldest son accepted Jesus as his Savior a few months ago, a dear friend's husband also became saved, and a soldier fighting overseas was just reuinted with his family last week. I had been on my knees for these families, and God showed up in a big way.

A friend reminded me of this song recently...

Light of the world
You stepped down into darkness
Opened my eyes, let me see

Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You're my God

You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy,
Altogether wonderful to me

King of all days
oh, so highly exalted
Glorious in heaven above

Humbly You came
To the earth You created
All for love's sake became poor

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You're my God

You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy,
Altogether wonderful to me

Happy Son-day friends! ♥♥

Praise God for all three of those answered prayers! And Karli? If the worship team sings the song in your post (which happens to be one of my very favorites) tomorrow morning at church, I'm gonna cry. Happy joy-filled tears; but tears. And I will be thinking of you!

It's too bad I don't see many blogs on Sunday outside of SHS, because this is so beautiful. Yay for your boy accepting JC. That's awesome.
