Then Sings My Soul Saturday- "Miracle"

Ok, so I'm a day late this week for Then Sings My Soul Saturday. Hope you all don't mind. My family and I were visiting Thailand yesterday in search of the royal white elephant. Our journey started off with a visit to China and a look into their culture. We read a story about a little girl named Doris who is a Christian among a people who have no use for God. We talked about how believers must hide their Bibles and attend secret house-churches in hopes of avoiding the Chinese police. Being a Christian in China is literally a life and death situation. Our family has committed to pray for the Chinese people and the upcoming Olympics. I plan on posting more about this later on in the week.

In our study of China yesterday I came across a song that I'd like to share with you. There is a sign on a house-church in China that reads "God so loves the world." The sign also includes the words to the song "Miracle":

Thank You for giving me life.
We gather because of Your love.
How can I be redeemed without You?
I give my whole life to You.
Thank You for teaching me the truth, reminding me to deny myself daily;
to let You manage my life.
I have God's footprints on my heart.
Oh God, I want to follow You and open my whole heart to You.
No one and nothing can compare to You.
Help me to walk with more strength.
Oh Lord, I want to serve You by using my changed life.

May we be a people seeking to serve God with our whole hearts no matter what it might cost us.

Thank you for sharing this. We forget how lucky we are to be able to worship freely.
