Soul Snack: Then Sings My Soul Saturday!

Did you think you'd see my weekly song today? Nope, this is for something else (but please come back here on Saturday and hear a good song!). Hopefully, you feel that the Saturday Soul Snack is part of what Mommy Snacks is about! I have said in my Welcome Snack that “I am just tryin' to be the best me that God wants me to be!” I feel like Then Sings My Soul Saturday helps me work on that.

Amy Wyatt is the author of Signs, Miracles, and Wonders and every Saturday she hosts a meme called…you guessed it…Then Sings my Soul Saturday. I want to take a minute to share more about how this meme has impacted my personal faith walk. For me, music is scripture singing to my soul. Getting on my face in front of God (Beth Moore's “Stepping Up” anyone??) doesn't happen as often as I want it to. Don't get me wrong, I pray and spend my time in my personal prayer closet, but the filling up of the scripture by reading my bible or a daily devotion doesn't always happen everyday – I have 3 beautiful and blessed reasons why here (expired). I was reassured in MOPS last year that God knows the seasons of our lives and he knows when our weary mommy hearts need to be filled with His word in other ways – for me that way is music.

As a mother, I am also known as resident chauffer so I'm in the minivan often (yes, I toootally rock my minivan too :-). We always have the radio on, dialed to our favorite station, Klove. For some reason, my heart is open and I hear these amazing christian songs and the Lord speaks to me. I can get in my devotion by listening to the lyrics of a song far better than possibly trying to read with many other things going on in my head. Obviously, this doesn't replace my personal devotion and study, but as I said, for this season of my life it's one way I'm getting that in (and I get it in during my workouts too – these artists can get you fired up to burn calories!).

The music – the words – are God-breathed scripture and they speak to me. Oftentimes, if a song blesses me, I'll immediately go to scripture and read. That's a clear affirmation that God wanted me to know or see something in a new way. There have been times when I've been called to Praise the Lord out loud for all of His goodness, and then there have been times when He is placing conviction on my soul for an offense (Psalm 139). Whatever it is, the music is that way to get me to hear His word.

Then Sings My Soul Saturday is a great way to start your weekend. You will get filled with His word and His believers' testimonies in a new way. I hope you'll take time to check out this amazing meme – you will surely be blessed!
