Shout to the Lord
Weren't you blown away by this? I was.
For some reason, at the end of this video, the person who posted it left Ben Stiller doing his schtick and part of that act includes being bleeped, and it's completely weird after seeing that big inspirational song, but there will be better versions soon.
People in bloggyland are already talking about it: "What's this all about?" "Is this commercialization of religion?" "Are they playing the religion card?" I can't presume to know any producer's motive or any performer's level of belief/worship ... I don't care. It was beautiful!
I just think that the greatest Giver of all was honored on a show about giving and love. My spirit did indeed shout to the Lord. I'm not going to let anyone dampen my joy. Nothing compares to the promise we have in Him, does it?
Edit: itunes has the full song WITH reference to Jesus.
*Please pray for my friend, Diane, today. She is in my life group. Today is probably the day when she will find out exactly where the cancer originated that has left her weak, in pain and understandably fearful, although she knows Jesus. This is heavy on our hearts 24/7 right now, but especially today. Thanks for saying a prayer for peace for Diane.
