Shephearding

HEARD: from Heather. She e-mailed me and briefly mentioned that Warren would be clear to start running again in 2 weeks. Thanks for all of your prayers on their behalf.

HEARD: Part of a sermon yesterday about deliverance by Johnny-fresh MacArthur. The dude rocks. ROOOCKS! Leave it to him to preach about stuff that most others don't. Check out his ministry, Grace to You.

HEARD: A Rich Mullins song on the radio yesterday that doesn't get played very often. It gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it. I crank it every time. I'll leave you with the words:

There's more that rises in the morning than the sun,
And more that shines in the night than just the moon.
There's more than just this fire here that keeps me warm,
And a shelter that is larger than this room.

And there's a loyalty that's deeper than mere sentiment
And a music higher than the songs that I can sing.
The stuff of earth competes for the allegiance
I owe only to the giver of all good things.

So if I stand, let me stand on the promise
That you will pull me through.
And if I can't, let me fall on the grace
That first brought me to you.
And if I sing, let me sing for the joy
That has borne in me these songs.
And if I weep, let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home.

There's more that dances on the prairies than the wind,
And more that pulses in the ocean than the tide.
There's a love that is fiercer than a love between friends,
More gentle than a mother's when her baby's at her side.

And there's a loyalty that's deeper than mere sentiment
And a music higher than the songs that I can sing.
The stuff of earth competes for the allegiance
I owe only to the giver of all good things.

So if I stand, let me stand on the promise
That you will pull me through.
And if I can't, let me fall on the grace
That first brought me to you.
And if I sing, let me sing for the joy
That has borne in me these songs.
And if I weep, let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home.
