What Do You Say?
Good day to my readers!!! Now the title to this blog post today has a bit of a pun to it because while writing it, it’s exactly how I’m feeling!!
What do I say!?
Writing a blog every day can get to be work! So I might draw them back them in the future but don’t worry – I’ll give you a weeks notice if I’m gonna do that! Until now, I’ll continue daily.
Ever heard of the song “What Do You Say?” by Reba McEntire? The first time I heard it (early one morning while working on writing a post) I fell in love with it! It’s a great song! So I wanna talk about some of these lyrics in the song. I know that sometimes there are events in our life that there is no words we can say. We question ourselves and ask what can we say? You can’t find the words to tell it like it is; sometimes you gotta bite your tongue and let your heart lead the way.
What Else Can You Do?
I guess that’s why we can pray. We can ask God to give us the words, but we all know that in some situations there are no words we can say to comfort someone. Some cases we can only pray for those people, but then again there – what can we say? In the prayers for those people, what do you say? When you can’t find the words sometimes we just have to ask God to help us and give us the right words to pray for a good friend. Ask God to comfort them and help them through the troubled times. Just close your eyes and let your heart lead the way.
“Sometimes you gotta listen to the silence, and just give yourself a little time to think”- Reba McEntire “What Do You Say?”
That’s another lyric from Reba’s song, and you know, it makes a great point! When you sit real still and quiet for even just a moment and listen to the silence, or maybe the wind blowing the leaves through the trees, if we sit and take that time maybe even for just only a moment, just to think…. To think about everything going on in life, yours and your friends. To think about what you can do to help in a troubled time and think about what you can do to help in a happy time as well. To listen to the silence and let God speak to you. Because he’s always talking to us, sometimes we just have to be quieter than other times.
Let Us Pray
Whatever may be going in your life, we will bind together and pray for you these things that are most necessary in anyone’s life during these days in this cold, dark world. We will pray that God give you strength, comfort and joy – strength to get through whatever struggle and heartache that may come your way, strength to be there for someone else, and strength to keep moving on. Comfort in all these times to keep you safe warm and to help you continue moving forward no matter what happens that he comforts you and you feel his presence with you so that you might make it through. And finally, we ask that God give you joy – a deep bubbling joy to help keep you going no matter what may happen in your life, that his joy is overflowing your heart at this very moment.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
I hope that you all have a very blessed day today! And here is the moment you’ve been waiting for! That’s right, you know if there is a song involved I am most likely to do a cover of that song! And in the above video is my cover of the song we’ve been talking about today! I hope you enjoy it, and that it blesses you deeply.
God bless y’all!
