About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Old Invitation Song Becomes My New Favorite

 
I grew up in a church that sang from a hymnbook with a lot of old songs.  I normally didn't even think about what I was singing, I just sang because it was part of the agenda at church.  It's completely different than the way I worship at church now.  We sang this song at church the other day and it hit me how beautiful this song is.  I remembered singing it when I was younger but it was just your typical invitation song as you watched people go to the altar.  Like it was just meant to occupy time as people prayed.  As I sang these words on Sunday, it wasn't just a song to occupy time.  It really spoke to me of how great God's love for us.  He wants us to come to Him broken, wounded, desperate, empty, and guilty.  His son, Jesus shed His blood to rescue us from all of that.  As you listen to this song, soak in the words and worship along thanking God for His love to us.  I love the extra chorus Travis Cottrell added to this song:
 
I come broken to be mended, I come wounded to be healed
I come desperate to be rescued, I come empty to be filled
I come guilty to be pardoned by the blood of Christ the Lamb
I come broken to be mended, I come wounded to be healed
I come desperate to be rescued, I come empty to be filled
I come guilty to be pardoned by the blood of Christ the Lamb
And I'm welcomed with open arms,
Praise God, just as I am!!
