Lecrea-Identify

I'm not the shoes i wear
I'm not the clothes I buy
I'm not the house I live in
I'm not the car I drive
I'm not the job I work
You can't define my word
We're living in God's reverse
Identify in found in Christ, found in Christ

(check it out. It's kickin yo)

I just want to say...

God is awesome! Father I'm in awe of your glory and how you work in fantastically unexpected ways! Lord God, thank you for everything you have done, are doing, and will do!! God you are always there. When we are broken you are there and when we are victorious you are there. When I am hurt I will praise you; when I have won, I will praise your beautiful name!

When is the last time you have truly praised the Lord with no strings attached? Does it always seem like you are being pushed down? Well look at life another way, just try to count your blessings. God has blessed you with gifts you don't even know about! That's how amazing he is! Humbling? I hope so.

My prayer for you is that you will be able to fall to your knees and lift up your hands in gratitude toward our father in heaven who loves us.

Motives

What are the motives of your heart?
Do you truly live every day for the Lord or are you looking for acceptance in all the wrong places?
Do you do nice things for people because you want to share God's love or just look good?
Is it possible to give a truly selfless gift? I encourage you to try! But I have to admit, sometimes the best part of doing something nice is telling everyone how awesome you are. To give selflessly means to give in secret. It should only be between you and God. Once people find out, it just makes you look good.

A good reminder of where our hearts should be.

Why?

Why is it that whenever I try to get close to you, you get mad at me? And why has this been happening for about a year now?

Are your pants uncumfortable, because it looks like your boxers are looming up your fruits

Just some comic relief is all. haha

Broken

Father it seems like when we are broken, you are moving. When we are broken we can hear you. And it's when we are broken that we can be healed. Lord, when we are broken is when we are strengthened. And it's when we are broken that you can become #1. Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me, I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see.

I AM

I AM God, your savior, redeemer, judge, Father.
And you are my child with whom I am pleased.
Is he really pleased with us or could we be doing better?

Jerusalem

Jerusalem fell when temptations were satisfied and idols were built. What comes before God in your life?How can you fix that?
Be still and know that I AM GOD

Prverbs 1: 10

My child, if sinners entice you, turn your back on them!

Friday, October 23, 2009

You dont need a map for this journey, just faith.

Have you ever had one of those times when people say "I know how you feel." but they could never even imagine how you actually feel inside? Where do you go to find comfort? What happens when you lose a loved one and no one? Well human nature tells us to try and find someone that has gone through the same pain. Who can you fall back on? Someone who knows you better than anyone and can give you the peace your looking for. Someone who also has lost a family member. Someone that will never leave your side. Someone that can can say those magical words to give you rest. Anyone come to mind? I only know of one

What if...

What would it look like if we could all lower our guard and truly answer the question
"How are you?"

Monday, October 12, 2009

So we...

So we call on your name to give you glory
Lifting our voice singing holy holy
You are the one who saved me from myself.
You call me your son and I am humbled
Call me your art even when I stumbled
You said it was good, well what about now?
I'm ashamed of my past, the times I've failed
But your mercy remains, and your love prevails
But I'll be alright, I'll make the end
For you are my Love, my God, Redeemer and Friend.

With Head Held High

With head held high and Pride lead the way-
he lives this day by day.
Yet night by night he reads the Word and then I hear him say-
Forgive me Lord for what I've done and be with me all the way.
But morning comes and he leaves his home-
His heart is far away.

Ex

Father thank you for your beautiful creation! I am in awe of the way your creativity shows in every one of your children. I love the way you move differently in and threw me and her! Father you have blessed me with the gift of leadership but you have blessed her with the heart of a servant! Lord bless her because of her beautiful heart! And bless her because you have shown yourself to me threw her! Father bless her like you have blessed me. Send upon her your spirit that it may dwell in her forever and may your love never leave her side. Encourage her during the lows and give her exultant joy during the highs. But please Lord I beg of you! Tear down her wall of anger and replace it with your everlasting cup of forgiveness.

WE CAN'T DO IT BY OURSELVES

How long will it take until we understand that? It's not because of us that we win, or succeed or excel in something. It never ever is about us. We can't do anything alone! We can't even find happiness alone. In Everything, Everything we do, we are not alone. How long will it take until we see that we are helpless without the Lord! And how long will it take until we understand who we should be and what it will take to get there?

ProvE&Bs 13:3

Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything. I've said a lot of things, some good and some bad. It's funny how the bad tend to stick around while the good wither away. I have hurt some people with my words and I'm truly sorry. Mom is right when she says "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." I really am sorry. I'm learning. So please bring down your walls and let healing enter. May your faith be renewed and may the Lord of mercy bless you and strengthen you for the rest of your days.

Proverbs 8:35

"For whoever finds me finds life."
True statement. During chapel on Thursday I was thinking about this. This year at TC I've only been surviving. Surviving in good but living is so much nicer. In order to live I need the Lord in my everyday. In the center. The only time I think about Him is during my devotions at night. That's about it. In order to live this year I need to seek God and keep Him in the center. I need to be thinking of him during school and all my other activities.

Music

The Lord speaks to me a lot threw music. Underoath "To bright to see, too loud to hear" has some cool lyrics.
Good God, If your song leaves our lips, and your work leaves our hands. We will be wanderers and vagabonds. They will stare and say how empty we are. How the freedom we had turned us up as dead men. Let us be cold and make us weak, let us because we all have ears, let us because we all have eyes, Good God. How they knew that this would happen, they knew they knew that this would. Good God can you still get us home? How can we still get home? We're forgetting our forgiveness.
They make an emphasis on forgetting our forgiveness. Lets be honest, when things don't go our way we like to blame it on the people around us even when the blame is one to share.

Proverbs 3: 3-4

Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart. Then you will find favor with God and people, and you will earn a good reputation.
I guess earning a good rep. during school is important to a lot of people. Loyalty and kindness are two qualities people can never get enough of. But what does a good reputation mean anyways? Friends, grades, popularity? I guess loyalty and kindness can help get you there but I don't think that was what Proverbs is aiming for. I think "a good reputation" means a lot more than just popularity. There is nothing wrong with being popular, it's what you do with it that really matters.

So i was thinking...What is the best way to show a teenager the Lord's love and comfort? Well I think there are a few ways to show kids His love.
1) Smile and be encouraging
2) Include God in ur everyday lingo...for example, if someone said "Bye see you tomorrow." you could say " Yeah, God willing."

As for the comfort part of God, people usually aren't looking for comfort in something they can't see. Its usually easier to get through to people when they are having a hard time and need a friend. It's unfortunate that people don't want Jesus unless they are in pain. But if that's part of being human, why not help the Lord take advantage of it when the time presents itself? So when the time comes...use the above steps. They will most likely be ready. I feel like the more you talk about "God" the more of it goes over people's heads. Don't tell them about Jesus, show them.

YES or NO

Am i here or am I not,
Am i safe or was I shot?
Will I swim or will I drowned,
Will I be lost, will I be found?

Is he my God or just my dad,
Is this for life or just a fad?
Are they real or are they fake,
This is something I just can't shake.

All this world says beware,
But it's ok, he's always there.
Is it true, does he save?
Why yes it is, he conquered the grave!

What am I called to do?

I have so much passion for the Lord and all i want to do is bring praise to his name. Unfortunately not many of my friends feel the same way. TC has some problems and i feel like I'm supposed to bring a message to the hallways.
What would that message be?
He loves us?
He forgives us?
Does your life match your name tag?
I'm not sure yet, but I AM sure that the Lord needs to be my everything if i am going to make it through this next year.
But here is another question...
Can my friends step up to the plate and play for the Lord's team even though all judging eyes are on them?

Humble Pie

I really need to take a seat at the Lord's table and have myself a big slice of Humble Pie. Anyone else need to join?

Spiritual High

It's a great felling but it can also mess you up when it is gone.
They never last forever.
I'm here to encourage anyone and everyone willing to read this.
When the spiritual high leaves, school comes.
Don't think of school as a buzz kill, think of it as a challenge!
The LORD will never give you anything you cannot handle.
Even when you don't feel his presence you need to be in the Word and Praying for strength!
It will help the next time you run into temptations or opportunities (depending on how you look at it).
School takes a lot out of you.
The decision is up to you...
What do I fill the empty space with?
Do I try to fill it with worldly things that will never last,
or do I full it with the LORD and his LOVE?
It's your call

Have you ever experianced true happyness?

Have you ever jumped so heigh you thought you would never land?

Have you ever ran so fast that houses go by each blink?

Have you ever shouted for joy so loud that all your neighbors come out?

Have you ever said "Oh my God!" and actually ment it?

Well get ready because I have a secret for you...

You have a seat next to the author of forgivness with your name on it waiting for you to arrive!

So...Im having a really hard time right now. i guess I should be thanks full cus my life rocks compared to so many others but im kinda sad right now.

The only place I used to love going to was church. I loved my friends and they loved me back. The best part was that we always were so happy to see each other! But wow, things really do change. Questions we all hate talking about, espectially w/ the one's we love, come up like..."Am I different?", or "I'm mature right?". But things have changed and it kinda stinks. I have been putting on my fake smile at church for the past 6 months and i'm sick of it. Idk why im so unhappy there now. i guess it's because I feel like I have to pretend nothing has changed.
News flash...just becuase ur older doesn't meen ur more mature. Yeah I guess temptations are hard to say no to, but if there was anything ever worth working hard for, it is the LORD.
The only thing I can do is pray and pray and pray. I just wish God would hurry this one up. But I guess this is something worth waiting for. I know the Lord answers prayer so all I can do now is wait!

An Ode To A Good Friend

What do I do now?
Father so many things have torn me down.
I used to be the one on top, the one with the crown.
But ever since..then..I can't even eat.
Can I still show your love to everyone I meet?
I know hard times come and go...
But Lord, what are you trying to show?
Am I called to learn from this,
Or am I called to forgive and forget?
Father whatever I do,
I promis to keep my eyes on you.

So lets talk about what really matters.
Friends
Grades
Friends
Clothes
Friends
Music
Friends
Fads
Friends
The opposite gender : )
What do all of these have in common?
They all come and go, drift away, part ways, lose interest, fall apart, go out of style.
Eventually they all end but the LORD will always remain.
Love
Compation
Comfort
Reasurance
Peace
Forgivness
All this world will pass but the LORD will always be. Even when we are the ones doing the drifting.
So God, I was born into sin. I suffer because of something that happened years ago in a garden. Sure I have sinned a countless number of times and no; I don't deserve salvation. But why was I never given a chance? I'm called to live as Christ did, but it's impossible. Salvation would mean so much more to me if I had messed it up myself. But I never even got a chance. So the question still remains...If we are called to live a sinless life, why did God make it impossible?
My porpose is to love, serve, live for you, glorify, show, listen, give, be your hands and feet.

Jealousy destroys...
Relationships
Trust
Caring
Hearts
Households
Faith
LoveJealousy destroys me.
In your presence God,
Your love is all I feel.
Your arm embrace,
Has the power to heal.
Because you are my LORD,
I surrender myself, my sward.
To be your hands and feet,
Lord God wash over me.
I'm so sick of Judging.
I'm so sick of trying.
I'm so sick of caring.
I'm so sick of bad choices.
I'm so sick of words that hurt.
I'm so sick of being the best.
I'm so sick of wanting.
I'm so sick of lusting.
I'm so sick of jealousy.
I'm so sick of falling.
I'm so sick of being fake.
I'm so sick of not listening.
I'm so sick of not thinking.
I'm so sick of jokes taken too far.
I'm so sick of hurting others.
I'm so sick of not being there.
I'm so sick of knowing and not doing.
I'm so sick of bragging.
I'm so sick of pretending.
I'm so sick of no compaction
I'm so sick of destroying.
So why do I continue to do it?
I know a man that loves you.
I know a man that cares about you.
I know a man that knows more about you than you ever will.
I know a man that knows all of your darkest secrets.
I know a man that rejoices when he sees you do something right.
I know a man that weeps for you when you get lost.
And I know a man that throws a pretty sweet party for you when you are found.
His name is Jesus Christ and he longs to have a relationship with you.
Forgiveness never quits.
It heals.
It refreshes.
It rejuvenates.
It is exactly what I need.
Forgiveness does not stop.
Father you knew what I needed most.
You not only answer prayer,
You answer what I truly need.
You know me deeper than I ever will.
Father you have made yourself known in my life.
My prayer is that you will give my family the joy to show your love.
I know you will answer,
I just don't know how.
ANSWERED
Father to...
Father to fall before you in humility is an honor.
Father to worship you alone is a blessing.
Father to talk about you is a miracle.
Father to show your love is the reason I live.
Father to listen to you is beyond my dreams.
Father to know you is incomprihendable.
Father thank you.
Thank you for your Love.
Thank you for your Kindness.
Thank you for your Guidance.
Thank you for your Mercy.
Thank you for your Timing.
Thank you for your Healing.
Thank you for your Forgiveness.
Thank you for your Presence.
Father thank you.
Father I'm ready to take the next step.
I need to run to you because you are running to me.
I need to keep you in my mind as I'm in the hallways.
I need to show your love in simple ways such as smiling.
There needs to be something different from me and everyone else at TC.Father I need you in my everyday.
Cry out to the Lord for he is the one who saves,
The King of Kings Prince of Peace,
Cry out for he will listen.
Cry out because he loves you,
He doesn't have to but he loves you because he loves you.
Cry out because he cares about his relationship with you.
Cry out because he answers when you do.

So...I thought it would be lame to have a blog. But...yeah. now i do i guess. The reason i got this is cus a have some cool stuff writen down and i dont want to loose it all. So why not put it on the web?
