Heeey...my next artist- post is here!

It's really time for one


:) I chose to speak about a great woman who was a great
encouragement to me lately. She inspires me very much and I love
how she pours out her heart to God. She sings songs which are
from the depths of my heart...songs which I really yearn to sing
along with her, it's so intense. The person I'm speaking about,
as you read in the title, is Misty Edwards. She is a worship
leader and song writer at the International House of Prayer in
Kansas City. She serves as a staff member and intercessory
missionary since 1999. She inspired other worship leaders whom I
really love like Kim Walker Smith and Catherine Mullins. I won't
write all my thoughts concerning this awesome Woman of God,
because I want to let her words speak about her :)
Here are some quotes and pictures of her:
"I have a great desire to see the knowledge of God flood this
generation. I mean the real knowledge of God, not the distant
Sunday School version but the true encounter with the Uncreated.
I have devoted my life to searching Him out through His Word,
prayer and fasting, and to ask Him to reveal Himself in my day
and time. There's no other point for my existence but to touch
the Transcendent. I believe that this is the generation who will
usher in the Son of Man as we intercede from our highest
identity as a Bride crying out, " Come!" unsatisfied with
anything less than Him. As Eternity breaks in we will awaken the
Dawn with a song and the Morning Star will rise to have His
inheritance on this planet! This is all I care about."

If this is the way that God feels about us, theres only one
worthy response, to pour out our lives as an offering, as a
pleasing fragrance, He is so pleased with you, He wants you with
Him, where He is, both now and forever.

Talk to Him instead of all the other people in your head. Talk
to Him, Hes the only one that can hear you anyway. And He is
actually listening.

The worst of days with Jesus are still better than the best of
days without Him.

To love Jesus more we must understand Him more. This takes


ravenous hunger for Scripture & perpetual turning to the Spirit
to be taught.

Jesus both commanded and prophesied that we would love Him with
all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. To love Him in this
way is to be obsessed with Him. Obsession, in the positive sense
of being fixated and wholeheartedly devoted to Jesus and His
truth. It is not a passive love but abandoned love, holding
nothing back. This takes revelation of who He is. To grow in
love for Him we must grow in understanding of Him and this takes
a ravenous hunger for the Scriptures and a perpetual turning to
the Spirit to be taught. To be obsessed with Jesus means we are
entirely His and caught up in His story and His purpose above
all else.

I really desire to live and say this, too:

I want to be a woman who lives totally abandoned to the first


commandment: to love my Lord, my God, with all my heart. I dont
want the reputation that I love God, I dont want to write songs
about loving God, I dont want to talk about loving God. I want
to actually love God. When I close my eyes, I want my heart to
move. When I close my eyes and I look at Him, I want to feel
alive on the inside. I want to look at Him with a fire in my
heart and its real. Misty Edwards
