I am a child of god and i'm also a work in progress. my prayer_ my want_ is to always be.
i want change in me. i hope that you're always able to see change in me _ thru me.
i don’t want to be that person someone looks at or sees 10 years from now and says “you haven’t changed a bit” nope, I want to be different.
bc he has been the difference.
even if it’s the difference I’ll be for my kids in their lives.
i do not claim to know nor have it all together. but I am seeking his face_ drawing nearer to him_ listening for his voice and learning to receive his grace that’s offered me daily.
something I’ve found hard at times to do. and i’m going to mess up.
i’m going to have an awful attitude at times.
but then there’s God who says I’m worthy not worthless despite it all. he never throws in the towel bc of my sin or says “I’ve about had it with this one right here. she wants the best out of life and expects me to bless her. I think i’m about done with her. she just has it too good” lol no… he’s our dad, our Father and why wouldn’t He want so much more for us. in fact, he says in spite of it all_ what you did_ what your doing_ what you’ll ever do… I still love you. he gives me do-over’s every new day when we don’t get that luxury a lot of times with people.
and I don’t have the answers but I look to the one who does.
the one who never lets go of our hand.
the one who has overcome the world.
as unhealthy chains of past sinfulness & shame are broken I can feel the shift. I’m feeling the freedom from it all as old ways_ old thought processes and lies that I’ve believed about myself are unraveled and exposed. laid bare. only God can bring about life and restoration when things are brought into the light. it’s when things go hidden that it gives power to and over us.
in truth we don’t need many things in life but I NEED more of jesus.
sometimes I get tired of my same rotation of music, though. i need something fresh_ something new. so I was going to put youtube videos on here of some new favorites i've found but instead figured I’d just give you the links. Annnnnd I’m hoping you’ll tell me some of your favorite’s. i would love to know or maybe something fresh & new you’ve found recently.
“my one defense
oh god how I need you”
defeated the grave
raised to life
our god is able
in his name we overcome
for the lord our god is able”
“give me faith to trust what you say
that your good and your love is great
I’m broken inside
I give you my life
I need you
all I am I surrender
I may be weak
but your spirits strong in me
my flesh may fail but my god you never will”
**And lastly, I just found All Sons and Daughters and to say that they’re awesome is an understatement. such goodness in their music. go give them a listen.
"your peace is the melody
you sing it over me now
i need a reason to sing
i need to know your still holding the whole world in your hand
and that is my reason to sing"
go on and scream it from the mountains
go on and tell it to the masses
that he is god
we will sing out hallelujah
