What a night; what a glistening, glittery night. Oh you snow white jewel of radiance that looks down on the earth with a stare that covers the ground with a soft focused ray of pixie dust that surely transforms the clouds to cotton candy as it passes through them. You reflect the sun as my life should in the dark, in a world that is bleak I don't dare hide my spark. Conjure up stories for my mind to play out, tickle my senses like daisies around, fields, rolling feathers, the cottonwood trees, the scent of these petals, I'm brought to my knees. A lone light in the sky for the world to all see. You're just a pinch of the magic and heavenly majesty...

I don't care what you may tell yourself, you have a purpose and the proof of it is in the fact that you got up this morning and took another breath. God says that fear has no place, so aim for those blue skies!

I’ve heard the words of this people. They have well said all that they have spoken. Oh that there was such a heart in them that they would fear me and keep my commandments always that it might be well with them and with their children forever... Deuteronomy 5:29

Worship songs sung with raised hands, saying a prayer at a youth conference, and posting Bible verse memes on our social networking accounts doesn't make us Christians. It is choosing to commit ourselves to a life of repentance. Jesus didn't say the road would be easy, but that the reward would be great.

The church's passivity in the face of sin today is growing and the question we need to ask is: Is the church influencing the world, or is the world influencing the church? We need to remember what Jesus saved us from; ourselves. Our wretchedness before Him is what makes His gift so beautiful, and if we don't get on our knees to admit it to Him and actually make an effort to change our ways, what are our words to Him?

Man, let's look to the one who loves us enough to be patient with us for this long, and murder the lukewarm attitude that exists within us.

Knowledge is not necessarily wisdom.
Be keen in knowing the difference.

The problem that we face in the world today, is not boredom that comes out of pain, but boredom that comes out of being weary of pleasure, not being weary of pain...The irony of the question of the problem of pain is that most of the Eastern world doesn't even ask it; it is we in the West who steeped in pleasure, who have created boredom out of our own affluence, and impotence out of our erotomania who seem to wonder where God fits into the problem of pain.

I pray this speaks to you. You know who you are. You aren't alone. I guarantee things will get easier. You were made for so much more than your mistakes say you are. Don't listen to what your doubts say the outcome will be. Listen to God because He made you, and the mind that's within you that is only speaking from what it sees rather than from what He sees.
The fact that you are taking another breath means that God  is continually pushing you towards the purpose He placed forth for your life. He's right there for you right now, and though you may not feel like you want to pray, that's the perfect time to. Remember the peace you would receive when you talked with and sang to Him in the past.
When we have suffered much it means that we have a large calling on our life that God needs to prepare us for first.

James 1:2-4

It may feel like what you're fighting for is so far away, but now is not forever and won't be forever. God is much bigger than your trepidation and infinitely bigger than your fears.

Inside, you know you're a fighter, and you may feel like its impossible right now, and you know what? On your own it is, but with God it isn't. Nothing is more powerful than knees to the floor prayer, bringing your everything to Him. Trust me, He ain't finished yet, and He sure didn't bring you this far just to leave you. Instead, He brought you this far to sharpen you.

Some stars are just fun to admire from a distance...You get joy out of watching them shine to the world.
What's even better is when they don't even know how bright they light up the room.

If you struggle to find those words you can't see, search deep in your mind for the peace that you need, through the night it looks dark, you look hard for a light, but are met with the fog that clouds up your sight, feel the rush of your brokenness dwelling in pain, are soaked in your tears and filled with the strain, of repetitive efforts that you feel are in vain, like a climb that is endless and a stretch for your brain, just know you are heard amidst the voices in need, no emotion ignored though it feels like it bleeds, because if God hears the insects that live on the leaves, takes care of the songbirds, provides for their needs, your worth is much greater than you would believe, He's aware of your struggle and hears when you plead. In our attempts to gain insight we muddle it up, because we don't see the picture that God paints above. We don't understand, but in time we soon will, that God brings out glory in weak and the frail...

He ain't finished with you yet! ;)
God doesn't use the strong and the "perfect." He uses the broken and the sinful because it is those individuals who understand the power of grace and the depth of genuine love.

He's refining me every day and boy do I screw up often. We don't have to do it alone. So let God be God and don't try to take on that job because lets admit it, we're awful at it. ;)

Its nights like these...where the earth whispers in the unique tranquility of gusting breezes that blankets the silence with its peaceful madness, offering a comfort that can only be felt in the midst of its beautiful chaos. Each star, like diamonds scattered across a sheet of black velvet with a beauty that words can't hope to adequately express.
So turn the music off, set the phone down, its beautiful, prepossessing, enchanting, so spend the moment of this serenity and talk to the one who made it all. He's right where He's always been, patiently waiting to hear from you and watching you do it all on your own when He knows you can't handle a burden like that. Don't cry, he's caught each one of your tears. Don't fret, He only wants to remove your fears. Hush those doubts that cripple your confidence. Stop and simply listen. Listen to Him speak.
Beautifully broken. Wonderfully worth It. Resolute in our resilience.
Hopeless and helpless, broken but closest...to the one who truly knows us.

Introduction

I was redeemed in my inadequacy, not perfection, not in my walk, but in my crawl, and not when standing tall, but in my hopeless stupor. So take my reputation, take the compliments, take the nice smiles, take the common sense. Remove me from the pedestal and stand before me, freely its yours and I give you all the glory.

 


Bragging rights
I got up this morning! ;)
