Heaven on Earth

This song has been on my heart since I woke up at around 4:30 this morning.

So powerful!

I pray it lifts your spirit and encourages you this morning 💖

[Verse 1]

His anointing is empowering
The Kingdom of the Lord is within me

Just like Heaven, just like Heaven on Earth
Oh-oh-oh-oh Heaven, Heaven on Earth
Oh-oh-oh-oh Heaven

The original post and the photo that inspired it is included below.

Please let me know your thoughts in the comments! 💖💖💖 – Fran
