For the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.
The kingdom of this world
Is become the kingdom of our Lord,
And of His Christ,
And He shall reign for ever and ever,
King of kings, and Lord of lords,
And He shall reign forever and ever,
King of kings, forever and ever,
And Lord of lords,
These words were being sung by people at an event that claim NO connection to Christ. Yet they were declaring that 'The Lord God Omnipotent Reigneth!'. That the 'Kingdom of this world... is now become the Kingdom of the Lords!'
This isnt the only time this happens. We recieved carolers from up our canyon and I don't know what their religious standing is. If there is one. But we were singing songs about Christ our Saviors birth and it was sucha beautiful moment.
It just got me to thinking about how God uses people who to declare his glory. Isaiah 45:23 says
By myself I have sworn,
my mouth has uttered in all integrity
a word that will not be revoked:
Before me every knee will bow;
by me every tongue will swear.
This is quoted in the New Testement in Romans 14:11
It is written:
" 'As surely as I live,' says the Lord,
'every knee will bow before me;
every tongue will confess to God.'
It amazes me that even now
Every tongue will confess.
Merry Christmas!! Have a blessed day.

That I have a supportive and loving family
-A mom who does so many things that I can't even pretend to list them... Makes amazing dinners, gets amazing Christmas cards together, drives us enumerable places, shops for things we need, and raises /rasied 9 kids!
-A dad who is so patient and provides for 7 children at home and 2 at college. and still has managed to get a pile of presents under the tree
-3 big brothers that love me and that I love. Adam is coming home soon, Brady is here and is a joy to have, and Jared is still always there.
-Hilarious younger siblings, who ought to keep me rolling on the floor laughing.
That I have amazing friends who don't care how dumb I am, but still buy me presents. even when I didn't get them anything yet. Who trust me even when I don't deserve it. And who will laugh with me. And sometimes cry. But still be my friends =)
That there is such a thing as coffee. And that I can drink it with my brothers and mom and be cheery and joyful. And silly I guess. haha.
That there is such a thing as dancing =D and that my brothers know how to do it; well. And that they dance with me in the kitchen and dip me and everything!
That God created a world that has un-countable beauties. That there is rain and snow and pretty colors in flowers and trees and that i live in a place that is surrounded with wonder.
That I have worm cloths that hide me from the seasons and keep me healthy and warm. For scarves and coats and sweaters.
That we have a car that can take us places. With warm air that magically blows on us. That can play music that magically floats through the air to the car. =D
That our country has clean water, warm and cold. Makes it very easy to keep clean and sanitary.
That when night comes I have a bed waiting for me with soft pillows and warm blankets.
And the list goes on. and on.
Count your blessing! And, if you can, add to others lists =)
