And when I look into your eyes
I see the hurt and the confusion
The pain as it rolls down your face
And the questions in your mind
And I know, 'cause I've been there
Yes, I know, 'cause I've been there, time and time again
And don't you walk, don't you walk away 'Cause He will never desert you He'll never let you down
Don't walk away from Him, no, no, no, no, no
You're always telling me that you don't need to change
That you're fine with who you are
When I look at you, I see you filling your life with all that you can find
Hoping and wishing this world can bring you
A little peace of mind
Well, stop looking, 'cause He's right in front of your eyes
'Cause He will never give up on you today
No, don't walk away
'Cause He'll never let you go
No, no, no, no
Don't walk away
Don't walk away
'Cause He'll never let you go today
Don't walk away from Him
-Shawn McDonald
I have nothing good to say.

Take it!

"Take My Life"
Here I am before You now
Like a child I'm reaching out
Here I am I'm giving all I can
Breaking my pride I feel I'm through
Shattered inside I run to You
And now I give it all to You

Take my life, Take my mind
take my soul take my will
I am yours now, and I give it all to You

Laying all down before my King
Offering all my everything
Laying all down before the one I serve
I can understand the reasons why
You came on this earth and died
And now I give it all to You

I can feel You on my shoulder
So I know that You are there
I can see You paint my picture
The beauty is all there
We all expect that trials, we even prepare for the unexpected.
But it's how we respond to the unexpected that God is worried about.
Do we fall in his arms and ask him to help us carry our trials or do we become bitter?
Do I really have faith and trust God enough to place my life, my entire life in His hands?
Am I looking at this as an opportunity or a hindrance?
Or would I rather go on living my "perfect" life, being lukewarm towards God?
The answer is probably, yes.
Which is why God doesn't let us chose our trials.
Thank you Lord for not letting me chose what I would want happen in my life.
God just take my life, do what ever you want with it,
Send me to Africa,
Keep me here,
Take my family,
Let me die young,
Let me die old,
Take my money,
Take my security,
Take my life,
Do whatever will bring glory to Your name, and help me fall more IN LOVE with YOU.
I love you.
Thank you for putting things back in the right perspective for me.

God is so good.
[lol if you know what happened the 23rd it makes more sense.]

I'm to comfortable.
I love life to much.
And I don't love God enough.
That's me.
These are the moments I wish I could be perfect. >_<
But then again, God knows what's best. : )

Let God be God, By Nick Vujicic

I was listening to this amazing sermon from this guy.
My notes from the Sermon.

Let God Be God:

Joy, Peace.

Commitment comes before provision.

Philippians 4:4-7
4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.
5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand;
6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Romans 8:28
28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Jeremiah 29:11
11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Psalms 129

You don't come up with faith, God gives you that faith. Faith itself is a gift.
Being to busy for people is bad.


Don't be a safe Christian

Be a secure Christian

Sunday I say how I want revival, and Monday I can't find my bible.

When you walk with God, He carries the bags.

It's amazing to see the only limits God has are the limits we put on Him.

We just need to let God be GOD!

It's so hard to see Jesus in our life when all we see is the rocky road ahead.

It's like haveing a bowling ball glued to your hands, just when you think it's all over Jesus comes along, he doesn't remove the ball, but places his hands underneath yours and lifts them up.

His love for God just flows from him.
It was so encouraging.

I love dreaming but I'm being to think my dreams are to small.
I have been promised a eternity of bliss, paradise, but nooo I want a reputation on earth.
I'm promised a part of God's estate, but I want friends.
I've been promised a relationship with God as his daughter; but I want to be known as cool know.

It's like wanting a shack, when I have been promised a mansion. To get the the mansion I have to pass through a brief forest but it's really not that bad.
But I am absolutely sure I want that shack. I'm sure that if I just had that shack I would be satisfied and good for life.
Everyone around me thinks I'm crazy.
God himself comes down to earth and tries to get me to look above the trees and see the alabaster castle. Everyone holds their breath, if only I'd look above and ahead just a bit, surely I would see it! But no like a stubborn 2 year old I stomp my feet and turn my back on God and the mansion and point longingly at the smelly, horrendous, little shack.
God sighs and says "It's yours." I run and skip all the way there. My delight only lasts a second. I soon see if for what it really is. But even then do I get upset at myself? Pfft no.
I once again take it up with the maker of the universe, "You never told me it would be like this!" I scream at him. I still refuse to look up.
Till one day, I hear a cry. I see a vision of a man on a cross, and not one of the little crosses you make in Sunday school that have the cotton balls glued to them, but a real, rough, horrid cross. And a man is nailed there. Freaking NAILED? What the heck? How in the world did that happen?
As the vision fades, I see it, shining in the light it's magnificent. Far more beautiful than anything I have ever seen. I can't even breath. And a hear a voice whisper to my soul, see what I have planned for you. And see what it took to get you to look up.
To get there I have to leave my shack and everything in it. But with the castle in the corner of my eye everything looks decrepit.
To get there I must go through the forest, and there are time when I won't be able to see the mansion because the trees are to thick or because I am looking at the ground. But I'm still here for the journey.
I suddenly look at the forest in a different way, it's just a detour to get to my home.


I have been thinking about it lately, but last night was talking about it with a friend; Why is it that we care so much about what will be gone tomorrow, and hardly at all about things in eternity?
I worry so much about what people think about me or what I do. When the only thing that really matters is what God thinks about the things I do.
I obsesses over a stupid test, when there are people that are going to hell because they have never heard the gospel.
Why is it I have to fight my flesh so hard to be completely satisfied with Christ?
But maybe that's my problem, I'm fighting myself-with myself.
I can do nothing without God, but I still try! And I fail every time.

I'm finding everything I'll ever need
By giving up gaining everything
Falling for You for eternity
Right here at Your feet
Where I wanna be
I am Yours
