Kings and Queens
Do you ever hear a song over and over and over and realize that God is just using it in a mighty way? I have to laugh at myself now because for months (like since last fall when Nick was apparently beginning to think about adoption) I have been hearing this song. It's Audio Adrenaline's "Kings and Queens" if you haven't listened to it, you should, and if you haven't seen the video you will absolutely love it!
So now that you possibly have tears in your eyes, or at least a huge smile on your face and the desire to finger paint, you can get why this song means so much to me right now. I hear it a lot every single day multiple times between K-love Air1 and the Christian satellite station they play at work. God has used this song in so many ways and so this morning, as I was folding laundry (for 2 people mind you... dear Lord help me when we have this child or multiple kids here WHEW the Laundry will be the death of me) anyway as I was putting things away guess what came on. Yep you guessed it! So as I type my laundry remains on my bed to be done later today tonight if we're lucky, and I just wanted each of you to hear this song and read the lyrics.
Audio Adrenaline "Kings and Queens"
Little hands, shoeless feet, lonely eyes looking back at me
Will we leave behind the innocent to grieve
On their own, on the run when their lives have only begun
These could be our daughters and our sons
And just like a drum I can hear their hearts beating
I know my God won’t let them be defeated
Every child has a dream to belong and be loved
Boys become kings, girls will be queens
Wrapped in Your majesty
When we love, when we love the least of these
Then they will be brave and free
Shout your name in victory
When we love when we love the least of these
When we love the least of these
Break our hearts once again
Help us to remember when
We were only children hoping for a friend
Won’t you look around these are the lives that the world has forgotten
Waiting for doors of our hearts and our homes to open
God is reminding me everyday that I AM A QUEEN and how blessed I am to be called that. We want to love the least of these. Oh how I pray for our child, that he or she would be imagining right now what it would be like, feel like, sound like, to be loved, to be wanted, to be a KING or QUEEN. Oh man they do not know what's going to hit them when they get here. They will be treated like Royalty because we serve the greatest LORD of all! God, Thank you for taking me into your family. I was the yucky kid that the King would have kicked out of his Kingdom and you said nope, come here, I LOVE YOU and I WANT YOU. I stand in awe of my KING! I want to shout your name in Victory. Thank you for making me your daughter.
Enjoy the day!
