How Big I'm Blessed

This past weekend I came off of what I like to call one of my spoiled brat moods. That's right, this daughter of the king had several tantrums and whining episodes with her Lord and Heavenly Father. I know what these moods come from~ fatigue and overwork are usually the weapons the devil uses to reduce me to the spoiled, whiny brat. But then God steps in, after letting me go on for a bit, and reminds me of His grace, mercy and love. Then like any child who really does not want to upset her Father, she tells Him she is sorry and goes on.
In the middle of my tantrums this weekend, God used the song This is the Stuff by Christian artist Francesca Battistelli. The song not only reminded me of  "how big I'm blessed", but also put a smile on my face.
Life will always find a way to get under our skin, but God can and will use that stuff to bring us to holiness~ if we let Him.
Crank it up and enjoy!

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
