Hello Sweet Cheer: Happy Saturday!

Happy Saturday!

     The weekend is here!  Do you ever feel like the entire week you're just waiting for Friday to arrive and then Monday comes way too quick...?  Yeah, me too!  But I'm going to try to enjoy the weekend and do as much relaxing as possible!




     The Red Raiders put another W in the books Thursday night, thank goodness!  It was a strange game, and pretty stressful at times but we finished with a score of 20-10 and "upset" the 24th ranked TCU.  I put quotations around that because it wasn't a huge surprise that we won, just technically an upset since they were ranked.  Anyway... Josh Abbott performed at half time and we had a lot of fun!

     I've already had a great morning and it's only 10:30am!  My roommate Abby and I went to Chick-fil-A for free breakfast, which was great!  And then we stopped by the Lubbock farmer's market!  I went to the one in McKinney a few times this summer with my parents, so I wanted to see how the one here matched up!  Sadly, it was much smaller than the one at home and for today at least, not all the produce looked so great!  But it was still fun to go down there and walk around a bit.

     Today I want to share a song that I love.  It's a worship song we sing at my church and it's one of my favorites!  Here it is... I hope you'll listen to it as you read the rest of this post!


     Every word of this song is powerful.  The way it describes my Savior and assures us about who He truly is...I feel the Spirit's presence every single time we worship to it!
God undefeatable, kingdom unshakeable
In majesty and power You reign
Love undeniable, matchless and bountiful
To waken us to life You came
You came
     My Lord is undefeatable!  No one has the ability to overthrow His power.  His Kingdom will not be shaken.  He reigns with power that I can't even begin to understand.  "Love undeniable, matchless and bountiful"  This line really gets me.  His love is undeniable!  And can't be matched by anyone or anything!  There is NOTHING that can fulfill you, me, or anyone more than the love of a spotless lamb, a savior, who gave His life to account for my sin.  I'm overwhelmed by the truth of this song.  I could easily dissect every line of it but I'll leave you to listen to the whole thing.  It's a powerful song and full of so much truth.  (If you're interested in the theology behind this song you can check out this, written by some guys at Austin Stone Community Church.)

     In this stage of my life, this song has been key.  The past few weeks starting my last year at Tech have been a lot of fun, but they've also been tough.  I'm struggling to see what's next, where I fit, and how I'm going to leave this place I've grown to love so dearly.  In that, the Lord has been teaching me a whole lot of patience (something I think he's always teaching me and will continue to teach me for the rest of my life).  I'm seeing where I need to repent, where I have a lot of room to grow, where I need help, where I need accountability...I feel like this is a pressure cooker season.  A place where God has put me in a pressure cooker to grow, change, and mold me at a faster pace than usual.  I'm thankful for that, but if you've ever been through a season like that you know that it can be tough too!

     Thanks for reading, thanks for listening!  The fact that you've taken time out of your day to read this means a lot!  Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
