You Are Called, You Are Chosen...

Each of us as children of God are blessed with the calling to sit at the table of our King. We serve a God that is big enough to create the world, and to form the mountains. He is a God who at the sound of his voice those same mountains bow down, but we also serve a God who is personal. A God who invites us to dine with Him, to share our lives with Him. A God who knows the very number of the hairs on our heads. This is a blessed calling, this choosing of God to make us His own. So many times though, we stop right there. We are happy to sit at His table relaxing and counting our many blessings. How often we forget that God has also called us and chosen us to be His ambassadors. Sharing with the world all that we have found at His glorious table.

"You Are Called, You Are Chosen" was written by Eva Wilson and Eddie Cavazos. Eddie is a long time friend of our family who is a very talented song writer. When I talked with him about doing a new CD and told him about our plans to use it to raise money for adoption and orphan care while also raising awareness for our calling as Christians to take a stand for the least of these, his wheels started turning. Eddie contacted his writing partner Eva and shared the vision with her. Eva has two beautiful daughters who are both working in foreign countries right now. After Eva read our story on the blog and thought more about the work her girls are doing she penned the words to this special one night! Eddie then added the music and a song was born!!

Later my sweet friend Teri Caswell added a video to go with the song. Please take a minute to watch and listen!

Our prayer is that God will get Glory from this CD. We pray that He will use it to bless hearts and to open our eyes to our calling as believers to care for the least of these, and to share the good news of His salvation with others.

Jenna, we love the cd. We're praying for you guys. I also love the new look of your blog. Did you create it all yourself? You need to tutor me. :) Love you!
