Faith Without Borders

20131023-001354.jpg

I love this song. Take the time to read the lyrics. ๐Ÿ™‚ I attached a Youtube video link (my link to text thingy isn’t working) so you can hear how beautiful it is.

“Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) by Hillsong United

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior
[x6]

I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine

Through Clouded Eyes

20131008-234425.jpg

When was the last time you cried?

Did you grow up believing that crying was a sign of weakness as a friend of mine did?

Let me tell you something. It’s not. To cry is to let go of the pride holding back the emotions inside. Perhaps crying is not a sign of weakness, but in fact, a sign of strength.

I have cried quite a bit this year. Sometimes not with physical tears, but I can feel it inside.

There are so many reasons we cry.

I have cried out of fear.
I have cried out of uncertainty, out of missing a sense of steadiness.
I have cried out of conviction, as Wednesday night sermons have been preached.
I have cried out of worship, as I feel the Spirit of God moving.
I have cried out of disappointment in myself.
I have cried out of worry and fear for the young girls on Instagram that are cutting or suicidal.
I have cried out of desire.
I have cried out of frustration.
I have cried out of sheer, overwhelming hormones. ๐Ÿ˜›
I have cried out of confusion.
I have cried out of surprise.
I have cried out of love.
I have cried out of anger.
I have cried through movies.
I. Have. Cried.

Have you?

Crying is a release, a way to peace. It brings us to our knees. It brings us back to God, back to where we belong. Have you noticed how sleepy you get after a good cry? Maybe that’s a sign of the rest that we need. We need to take a break. Take a break from worry, from fear, from frustration, from disappointment, from anger.

Go ahead, cry. I have Kleenex.

Coming Soon!

20131005-211247.jpg

I apologize for not writing lately. I’m sure you miss me. ๐Ÿ˜‰ My life has been crazy. My grandparents were in town, I spend a lot of time playing with and training Rivver, on top of moving and such. I just don’t have the free time to write. I do have a list of things to write about though, so you should see more coming through.

I have been working on something. Only a few people know about it. It’s about to come out real soon though!
Any guesses? Here’s a hint…
