The drafts on my phone are full of ideas for posts that I just haven’t had time to write because I’ve been so tied down with homework. I hardly have any free time anymore. There’s always something that needs to be done. I’m sure a lot of you can sympathize with me because you’ve experienced similar things. Please just bare with me as I attempt to adjust to the craziness that IS my life now. And, if you feel so inclined, you can pray for me. 🙂

I’m really sorry I haven’t been posting lately! School has been insane! As an apology, I give you this picture of this morning’s sky by my house.

All You’ve Ever Wanted Lyrics Excerpt

Posted on Updated on

All You’ve ever wanted was my heart.
Freedom’s arms are open. My chains have all been broken. Relentless love has called me from the start. And all You wanted was my heart. I was chasing healing when I’d been made well. I was fighting battles when You conquered hell. Living free but from a prison cell. Lord, I lay it down today. So I’ll stop living off of how I feel, and start standing on Your truth revealed.
Jesus is my strength, my shield, and He will never fail me. No more chains, I’ve been set free. No more fighting battles You’ve won for me. Now in Christ, I stand complete.

Words are things that people say or write. They have the power to do good or evil. Ephesians 4:29- Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

Just Be Held Lyrics Excerpt

Posted on

When you’re on your knees and answers seem so far away, you’re not alone, stop holding on, and just be held. Your world’s not falling apart, its falling into place. I’m on the throne, stop holding on, and just be held.
Just be held! Just be held! If your eyes are on the storm, you’ll wonder if I love you still. But if your eyes are on the cross, you’ll know I always have and I always will. And not a tear is wasted. In time, you’ll understand
I’m painting beauty with the ashes.
Your life is in my hands.

The 7 Deadly Sins

Posted on

Devotion for the week of 9/15/14-9/21/14

Proverbs 6:16-19 lists the 7 deadly sins: ‘The Lord hates six things; in fact, seven are detestable to him: arrogant eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that plots wicked schemes, feet eager to run to evil, a lying witness who gives false testimony, and one who stirs up trouble among brothers.’ Notice how these sins are partnered with a body part. It doesn’t just say that God hates arrogance, it says that He hates arrogant eyes. By putting it in this style, it is shown that our sins are done with our body, inside and out. We do not just lie, we have a lying tongue. Our body, the tabernacle of God, deceives us, and Him, with sin. If you break it down, the sins are: arrogance, lying, murder, wicked acts, eagerness to sin, false testimony, and the gossip. Notice that a couple of those break the Ten Commandments: murder and false testimony. The others are mentioned elsewhere in the Bible as things God hates. Proverbs 16:5-Arrogance, Proverbs 12:22-Lying, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10-Wicked acts, Isaiah 59:2-Eagerness to sin, Proverbs 20:19-Gossip. Some of these are everyday sins for most of us. It’s strange to think that the things we’re so used to doing are sins that are detestable to God. We often say that some sins are worse than others, but they are all the same in God’s eyes. Both lying and murder are sins He hates and sins He views as equal. I believe that God wants us to know these things that He hates so that we won’t just assume that the sins detestable to Him are the same as the sins detestable to us, the sins we view as ‘major’. So, instead of comparing yourself to murderers to make yourself seem like a better person, realize that your sins are just as bad. The good news is that God loves you anyway, and He will forgive you as long as you ask.

A truth is an indisputable fact. Although some people try to dispute truth. Especially God’s truth. John 17:17- Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.
