No Sweeter Name



I have been in tears and in prayer and in song for weeks. When in despair, the tears come, and the songs come. My friend Shelly introduced me to Kari Jobe. Listen to "Revelation Song", listen to "The More I Seek You", listen to "Take My Life", listen to "You are Good", listen to "We Cry Out", listen to "No Sweeter Name"...she is annointed, gifted and giving her gift to God!

Give attention to the sound of my cry,
my King and my God,
for to you do I pray.

Psalm 5:2


Singing and praying, singing and praying, singing and praying without ceasing!!

Pray with me and for me! Jennifer prayed to God over the cell phone. Jenn prayed right there through FaceBook. Janet and Trish provided much needed hugs. Suzi cries when I cry. Beth prays that she will be right there in the path of someone who needs her. I did. She was. Doctors hug me and say we will be fine. Nurses tell me not to worry. Melissa, the vet, felt my pain at saying goodbye. Pam provides ears and more prayers. I ran to my friend Sandy, to share my fears, and talked without taking a breath to Elaine. Lindsey and Amy and Penny tell me I am an awesome mom and grandma. Doug and Kent listen. Kim offers many prayers. Mary and Jodi share my tears. My church prays on behalf of our whole family.

Still...fear creeps in....but there is No Sweeter Name when we cry out!

No Sweeter Name...sung by Kari Jobe

No sweeter name than the name of Jesus
No sweet name have I ever known
No sweeter name than the name of Jesus


No sweeter name than the name of Jesus
No sweet name have I ever known
No sweeter name than the name of Jesus


You are the light to my heart and soul
You are the light to the darkness around me
You are the hope to the hopeless and broken
You are the only truth and the way.


No sweeter name than the name of Jesus
No sweet name have I ever known
No sweeter name than the name of Jesus


-I am so sorry, LUCY
