Scripture & A Snapshot {Week 11}

Psalm 100:2

My most favorite songs are Christmas songs. 
When our son was born I didn't know/couldn't remember any lullabies, so I sang Silent Night, O Holy Night, and other Christmas songs to him before bedtime. I sang those because they comfort me. They make me feel loved and peaceful and whole. 

My favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night.
And my most favorite part of that song is "Fall on your knees"
I've heard that song a million times and that line never fails to give me goose bumps.

Fall on your knees.

I don't do this enough! 

MercyMe also puts it well in their song I Can Only Imagine:

Will I dance for you Jesus, or in awe of you be still?
Will I stand in your presence or to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing hallelujah? Will I be able to speak at all?

You can listen to these songs in the player below.

I also want to share the promo video from our church for the current Advent series of sermons.
It runs Nov 28 - Jan 2, and you can watch each sermon online by going here
I am continually moved by the sermons at our church - unlike anywhere else I've ever attended. I hope you'll give one of the sermons from this series a try because I really think they have a lot to offer.


Want to join in this challenge?


  1. Fall on your knees. Just thinking about it gives me goosebumps!

    I wonder what I will do when I first meet Jesus face to face. I am inclined to fall on my face, unworthy if it were not for His shed blood on the Cross for ME! I am so undeserving.

  2. That's one of my favorite carols too. And I love the softness over the photo. It gives a dreaminess to it.

  3. I used to play "Oh Holy Night" on the piano and the organ. I have so many favourite Christmas hymns and my hubby starts playing Christmas music from the middle of November.

    Your player won't play here in the UK - but I simply adore the Mercy Me version of I can only imagine and their video for that song but I also love Amy Grant's version aswell. I must pop over to youtube to hear Josh Groben as that's a new name to me.

    I'll pass on your advent links to my dh - we can't travel to church today due to the weather so we are depending on the internet for services.

  4. The words to hymns and Christmas carols are so powerful. Love the sweet little hands on the piano keys. So precious.

  5. Katie, such a precious picture, but such a wonderful reminder of praise that is due our Lord & Saviour, Jesus Christ.

  6. thanks to the link of your sevices will watch them.

    This capture is so sweet. He is worthy of our praise.

  7. That one line gets me every time and I have a hard time singing anything else. Goosebumps for sure!

  8. One of my favorite Christmas songs!

  9. I can't get the video to play. LOVE that Mercy Me song. THat's one that I sing as loud as I can in the car and don't care who can hear me!

  10. Spoke too soon. It works now. Just had to be patient.

  11. Beautiful!

    Have a Spirit-filled Sunday!

  12. So pretty. I love I Can Only Imagine by Mercy Me.

  13. How perfect! Love the quote and photo!

  14. BEAUTIFUL picture! Cherish it forever girl!!!!! You know...I think it is fabulous that you sing christmas carols like that to the kiddos. I have never thought to do that, but will start now. Christmas songs are some of the "meatiest" songs telling about our Jesus! I love it.

    Jason sings "I can only imagine" and I just get goosebumps every.single.time. Such a powerful song!

  15. I love that line as well!
    Have you heard the song Hungry {Falling on my Knees}?
    Its amazing! I think, judging from this post even though its the first post I have ever read on your blog, that you might like that song!
    MercyMe is AH~MAZE~ING! I can Only Imagine is my absolute favorite! I have all of their CDs. I got to see them in Concert in Georgia in 2009 and they were spectacular! I love your challenge! I'm gonna participate!
    Thanks for the awesome inspiration!

  16. I really like that shot/scripture. I LOVE Christmas music!

  17. Adorable pic and quote - Love the tie-in!

    I think I may have already said this somewhere, but this link-up is such a great idea! Thanks for doing it!
