NOTE: This year for our birthday posts, we will be highlighting a ministry or resource which has been a personal blessing to the birthday person. We hope you'll be blessed by some of the resources which have made an impact on our lives -- individually or as a family.
Happy Birthday, Rachel!
A ministry which has recently been meaningful to me is the hymn-writing of Keith and Kristyn Getty. As a songwriter with much to learn, I'm challenged and encouraged by their meaningful, rich, theologically deep lyrics. Their melodies are soothing, joyful, and uplifting in turn. Music is such a powerful tool and I desire to grow in the ability to put God's Truths to music. Their example spurs me onward.
I waited patiently for the Lord;
He turned to me and heard my cry.2
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
He set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord
and put their trust in Him. Ps 40:1-3
