Searching for Importance

Friends, I’m so excited to have my first guest post over at (in)courage today! Will you join me there? I’m talking about an unexpected moment when God whispered truth into my heart. 

Here’s a preview of my post…

I sat in worship service that night, happy to hear one of my favorite songs begin to play.

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!

Not thinking of anything but the song, I began to sing.

You want them to think you’re important.

Stunned, I stared at the overhead screen, but no longer saw the words. The congregation continued to sing around me, but I couldn’t catch my breath, much less sing.

God had chosen that moment to open my eyes…

To continue reading, follow me over to (in)courage...

Has there been a time in your life when you realized you were searching for importance in something or someone other than God?

In Christ,

  1. Good job and wow to write for the In courage site is a great honor. I loved the writing.

  2. Great post and congrats on being featured. Well deserved!

  3. What a challenging subject to post about, Laura. I still struggle with giving my kids completely over to the Lord and trust Him alone to take care of them! Like you, I've given them over in my prayers and words, but to follow through with it is not easy at all. It's a daily releasing to Him. Thanks for opening your heart to us!!
    Blessings! Ann @ Christ in the Clouds
