corny I know.

Have you ever looked at something beautiful and ached?
A longing you can't place your soul positively cries out in agony at the beauty of it.
Somehow though I never get that feeling looking as something man made, whether it is building ect.
Nothing gives me the feeling like sunset or a mountain range or an eagle taking flight.
Somehow in those moments I hear God say;
G "You're mine. And you were made for so much more than this."
M"I wonder why do you love me so much? I have done absolutely nothing to deserve this beautiful scene in front of my eyes, much less something better."
G"I love you. That is enough. Oh and thats child's play wait till you see what I've got in store. It will take your breath away. And then I'll have something better than that. Take that."
M"What choice do I have? =)"
G"Good point. *laughs*"
[I know it was corny get over it]

Lift your eyes...

Today is one of the days where there is an ache in my heart and I don't know why...
I'm longing for something but I don't even know what. No matter what I do I find nothing that satisfies. Until I lift my eyes unto the cross.
It is in these moments I am absolutely 100% sure that I was created for something so much more than this.

Lift your Eyes Leeland
You can look in your head and find no answer
You can look in your heart and find no hope
And you can crawl on the ocean floor
Searching for the silver pearl
But you won’t find the treasure in this world

You can lift your eyes
Come on to the cross
There is healing for all who come


If we were to wake up some morning and find that everyone was the same race, creed and color, we would find some other causes for prejudice by noon.
George Aiken

Prejudice. One of the most devastating sins. From it sprang the Civil War and the two World Wars. But where does prejudice come from? Pride. Plain and never simple pride. "I'm better than you because fill in the blank."
You know what I hate most about it though? Is that people base it on science.
People back in the 1880's did "scientific" studies that "proved" that black people weren't as smart and did better being slaves.
Under Hitler "scientist" proved that Jewish people weren't as human as because they smelled bad, caused trouble ect.
And people today try to prove "scientifically" that babies that haven't been born aren't human.
What a depraved world we live it.

Won't it be wonderful to get to heaven where there won't be even a hint of those things? We won't all be the same because part of the joy is being so totally different!
Imagine a lion and lamb. God doesn't say that he's going to change all the lambs to lions or vise versa he's going to allow them to be what they were meant to be but still get along.
We won't all be white, black, asian, have blue, brown, or black eyes.
We aren't going to be a bunch of clones.
We will all be so different, yet completely equal, and that's the beauty of it!

To love...

To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

God loves us.
God forgives sin.
Then it gets more complicated. I think because it involves us humans doing something.
To have faith that an all powerful, all knowing God would send His Son to become one of us. And to then sentence Him to death on a cross, for us because He loves US.? That's unbelievable.
To hope that He will let us live with Him in eternity forever with Him? And that we won't spend it away from Him in a place of everlasting pain separated from Him. That's having hope when things seem hopeless.
Even still it seems that God made it easy on us. He said that NOTHING is impossible through Him.
Therefore in light of what we know about Him and His Character nothing should seem unbelievable and we should always have hope.
ok I'm just kind of rambling now.
I'll post later : )
