Gorgeous Ponderings...

It's Sunday How bout a scripture and a song?

Phillippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Sometimes we need God's help. Some situations are too much, and I believe it's okay to need God and expect the need to be supplied! My pastor would say just scream out HELP!!! and we would scream it  out right there in service.

I need you now is one of my favorite gospel songs! I had the opportunity to see Smokie Norful live when this song first came out. You can feel his need for God's help! His testimony:

"I wrote that at a time when my wife [who was told she may have cancer and wouldn't be able to conceive], ...and I was seriously reaching out to God for comfort and guidance and healing. I was crying out to God and realizing my total dependence on Him, and ultimate victory through Him."

And eight years later Smokie Norful and his wife, Carla, are the parents to two boys, Tre' and Ashton, and a daughter named Ashley.

Please pause the music player below and click the link and enjoy the awesome voice of praise and great pianist that is Smokie Norful.


P.S. I love this... said...

I couldn't listen to that song enough when I first heard it.

When I need to be replinished or going thru, I listen to Fred Hammond &RFC 1998 "Your Love", "Your Steps Are Ordered".

I feel the same way about Mary Mary. There songs have gotten me through some terrible times. I even had the chance to see them perform and meet them afterwards!

I love Smokie - my fave is "I Understand." I cried to that song many a day!

And I love him as a person - we went to college together. One of the sweetest guys you'd ever want to know.
