~ He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection" - Psalm 91:4~
I wanna drown this pain out
with words written on my heart
describing all the doubt
Maybe by the time
the rain clears this drought
You’ll see right through me
See what I’m all about…”

Today is the day. I’m gonna follow my dreams. It may be a competitive race to run. It may be the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but I’m gonna do it. A wise man once said “You have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.” Time to step it up. I’m going to use the talents that the Good Lord gave me. I may even fail. But that’s okay! If I fail, at least I’ve tried. But hey! Maybe I won’t ;) I’m tired of allowing fear to control what I do (or do NOT do in this case). You have to work for what you want. We have ONE life. Why not try?
Life can be so sweet. Friends, laughter, and a purpose makes everything seem perfect. Nature is beautiful. We are SO alive. Yet, somehow.. somewhere in between, love is taken for granted. People cry. Hearts are broken. Lives are flipped upside down. Days start out bright and slowly fade to gray, while this fire inside is slowly dimming out. A fire meant to shine a light in the darkest places of this earth, isn’t being used. It’s being masked by insecurities, fear, apathy, and selfishness. We are broken. We live a dull, boring, mediocre life. We go to our 8am class, then to work to pay for the $500 apartment we just HAD to have. We stay up until 2am partying, talking, sitting, or doing whatever, just to have to get up in 5 hours and do it all again. Man, are we awesome or what?!
We call ourselves Christians. We call ourselves FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST, yet we live to please the people most important to us. We live for people when we should be living for God. We ALL have a purpose. Yet, we push it aside because it involves actual effort. Living a holy life, being an example of Christ to everyone around us is just TOO hard to do. We are being asked WAY too much.
If we are TRULY in love with our God, we will NOT make excuses! If loving people and spreading the Good News was important for Christ to do, why isn’t it important to us??
When life hands you love
You take it and run
Without the thought
that it could be wrong
Time goes by
and you don’t know why
But you feel there’s more
than just this ride you jumped on.
Sometimes people are meant to be
but sometimes people are meant to be freed
There’s no telling in this crazy life
Whether it’s hello for good
Or just the good in the bye
So I’ll keep the box
and you’ll keep the memories
We’ll exchange all the bitterness
for less of an ending like this.
Driving past your daddy’s house
Wondering if you’ll walk out
laughing and rambling
about them good old days
You and I
Talking about the rest of our life.
When loving you was oh so wild,
When we were young and free.
