There are certain number of moments that renovate our lives. One of which is being spoken for.
Album: Spoken For
Title: Spoken For
As we wrap up our series What’s New With You?, I’d like to end on a sentimental note.
Do you remember the times your heart was spoken for?
Was it your first crush who caught your breath with just a thought, placing a nervous butterfly in your tummy? Maybe it was a pair of love-struck eyes staring back at you?
Many times, when I watch my husband love on our boys, I can’t help, but be overcome with emotion. Not having grown up with a daddy myself, I’m overwhelmed by how blessed they are to have a loving father, to snuggle with and plant kisses on.
The moment TJ hears the garage door opening, he makes a straight dash for the door and yells, “Daddy! Daddy!”
Their daddy’s tall frame fills up the family room, as he picks up baby CJ from his toddling crawl and TJ squirms his way into a father’s embrace.
My children know, without a shadow of a doubt, they are spoken for.
You and me. We aren’t any less blessed.
It doesn’t matter how many birthday candles we blow out, you and I are spoken for.
Our loving, Heavenly Father, waits for us, with a gentle smile, arms relaxed and open.
Ready to love on us.
As we gather up hope for renewal, thinking of things gone by and longings to come, I dedicate today’s Worship Smoothie to you.
It was the song I felt best expressed my sentiments, as we break for the weekend and step into The Beauty of Whitespace, to find rest and repentance. Quietness and trust.
I hope it’s lyrics will capture your heart and steal your affections, to direct us to spending them on our Father:
Take this world from me
I don’t need it anymore
I am finally free
My heart is spoken for
Covered by your love divine
Child of the risen Lord
To hear you say “This one’s mine”
My heart is spoken for
Happy Friday, dear friends. I will be thinking of you in my Saturday morning whitespace.
What’s Love Got To Do With It?
Don’t Miss It!
And may our Heavenly Father love on you, until you are at rest, ready to be renewed. That’s where I plan to be, too. Enjoy.

Lyrics to Spoken For - By MercyMe Take this world from me I don't need it anymore I am finally free My heart is spoken for Oh and I praise you Oh and I worship you... [CHORUS] Covered by your love divine Child of the risen Lord To hear you say "This one's mine" My heart is spoken for Now I have a peace I've never known before I find myself complete My heart is spoken for Oh and I praise you Oh and I worship you... [CHORUS] Covered by your love divine Child of the risen Lord To hear you say "This one's mine" My heart is spoken for By the power of the cross You've taken what was lost And made it fully yours And I have been redeemed By you that spoke to me Now I am spoken for [CHORUS] Covered by your love divine Child of the risen Lord To hear you say "This one's mine" My heart is spoken for (2x) Take this world from me Don't need it anymore...
