Unexpected Inspiration – A Simple Pleasure

Project Simple Pleasures2
I have to admit. Finding the Inspiring is not always easy. Yes, the Lord makes known His goodness to us and reveals His presence daily. I believe that what the scripture says is true:

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen… Romans 1:20

But there are times when the world presses in and it seems as if we are surrounded by evil. Have you noticed how the media is getting bolder and bolder in their promotion of immorality? Oh, it’s disguised as entertainment, hidden under a veil of laughter and applause, but we know the truth.

And that is why this video downright knocked my socks off! A declaration of God’s awesome power and greatness on National TV! Practically unheard of these days.

My sister-in-law had told me about the show that aired recently highlighting women in country music. How Carrie Underwood, backed by none other than Vince Gill, brought the house to their feet with her rendition of the classic hymn “How Great Thou Art”. I was excited to see it on YouTube and am happy to share it with you today. Because finding the inspiring when and where you least expect it is truly a simple pleasure.

  1. One of my favorite songs and Carrie sang it absolutely beautifully! I had one of those goosebump moments. I am so glad that she chose to sing that song and that no one tried to tell her she couldn’t. Hope you are having a great day. Tammy

  2. I love this video…so powerful. And I agree, the world has become so bold and daring….we, too, must become bold in our faith and declarations, secure and confident in the One Who lives inside of us and is so much greater than the one in the world. I believe God is going to strategically place believers in areas where He is needed most. We must step up to the challenge and become the light that dispels the darkness. Thanks for your kind words on my blog today 🙂

  3. This was awesome! I have tears running down my face. It is awe inspiring to hear the Truth be told…nothing that the media or the world does, will bring down His Love and His Glory!

    Thank you so much for sharing this…I don’t have television, so this was a real treat.


  4. I’ve been hearing about this. I agree with Debbie – the effect it had on Carrie was certainly inspiring.


  5. It was simply God filled, and the most inspiring part of it was not the beauty of the performance but the obvious effect that it had on Carrie.

    Loved it!
