Please Forgive Me...

I have thought a lot about my blog lately... why I have one, what kind of posts I publish, does it make a difference, is it inspiring, etc? I have also been thinking about my walk with the Lord and my calling as a Christian. As I thought about these two things together, I realized that people who don't know me and came across my blog, may never see what God means to me. As a matter of fact, they may not even realize that I am a Christian. Looking at all of my posts, it would seem like Zack and Zayde fill the #1 position in my heart. But, that just simply is not so. My Lord and Savior is and always will be #1 in my heart and life, then Zack and then Zayde. While Zack and Zayde are so very important to me, Jesus Christ is more important. I will, of course, still publish posts about how wonderful my husband is and how adorable and great my son is. However, I hope to also start posting about how precious, costly and beautiful my Lord is- as the lyrics go in one of my favorite (old school) songs:

More Precious Than Silver
Lord, You are more precious than silver.
Lord, You are more costly than gold.
Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds,
And nothing I desire compares to You.

Lord, Your Love is higher than mountains.
Lord, Your Love is deeper than seas.
Lord, Your Love encompasses the nations,
And yet, You live right here inside of me!

Who can weigh the value of knowing You?
Who can judge the worth of who You are?
Who can count the blessings of loving You?
Who can say just how great You are?

Lord, You are more precious than silver.
Lord, You are more costly than gold.
Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds,
And nothing I desire compares to You.

And nothing I desire compares to You.

Right on Amy! It's really encouraging to read how God is working in the lives of friends back home!

Wow, Amy- That is so true and a great reminder to all of us. It is for sure easy to get caught up in the "stuff" of life, but how rich we are when we have Him in our life above all! What a precious and awesome God we serve!

Jessica said...

Amy, I think anyone reading your blog can tell you are a great Christian! Your posts reveal what a lovely, sweet, and God-filled woman of faith you are! Your love for your savior is evident in all you say! But you are so right, our blogs should always give glory to our creator, because it is from Him all good and wonderful blessings come!

Well said. May He continue to bless your precious family.
Godspeed,
Leigh

I was thinking the exact same thing that Jessica already commented to you. Your posts have such a sweet spirit to them that I think anyone would know you're a Christian. I am the same way though--I'm always talking about Brooklynn but I need to talk about the One who gave her to me!

Jessie said...

You have such a wonderful heart Amy and I think thats why I have always been so proud of having you as my very best friend. You make me and everyone around you a better person, and kudos to you for the post, but its nothing I didn't already know about you!!!

Tamara said...

You are exactly right. Sometimes you read other blogs & all you hear about is "stuff, stuff & more stuff". Life is not all about just "stuff". I'm so glad you have your priorities straight & you aren't afraid to let people know what you believe & where you stand! I'm so proud that you are my sister!!

By the way...I like your new background!

Hi Amy. I found you through Jessica. I love this post! So many people think that their children or spouse should be first, but you are so right that it's God who should be first in our lives. You have encouraged me by your post. My blog is mostly about trivial stuff that happen to me or the fun stuff I do with my niece and nephews, but I want to write more God and his blessings in my life. Thank you!

Hey Amy........I am visiting your blog thru Jessica's. I have read about you thru Jessica's blog and also reading a little of yours. I can say from someone not 'knowing you' I can tell you are a Godly woman. We should give glory to Him for all he gives us and sharing your love of your husband and son are actually a tribute to how much God loves you. I think it's a pure blessing to have such faith and to have son love in your heart for God and for you family/friends.

Mandy said...

Amy-awesome post and very inspiring! I know that anyone reading your blog can feel your love for God and how he is so much a part of your life. You are such a strong, Christian woman!
