“We are all created with purpose. Every one of us was put on this earth to do more for others than for ourselves. In this way, we all have a ‘Greater Calling’.”

Stand

This morning, I woke up and entered the battle.
My armor was strong from the Lord.
My sword, it was sharpened. My hand at the ready.
The shield was awaiting my arm.
The forces attack from every direction.
I feel overwhelmed, but God’s got back.
So I will stand here in this fight.

I will stand as my God gets the glory
I will stand and praise His holy name
I will sing of His infinite mercy
I will stand in this war here today
I will stand in this war here today

I am one who has seen the affliction
That dwells in the darkness like the dead.
I once lived without any purpose.
All for myself, but that is behind me.
The Lord now is my infinite portion.
I will wait on His every breath.
He will win. Of that I am certain.
So I will stand.
We will stand.

We will stand as our God gets the glory
We will stand and praise His holy name
We will sing of His infinite mercy
We will stand in this war here today
We will stand in this war here today

This fight is against invisible warriors.
Forces not seen, but surely real.
As we stand, the Lord is our protection.
Guarding us in every ordeal.
Our enemies will scatter before us in seven.
They will rise and surely be defeated.
So I will stand.
We will stand.

We will stand as our God wins the victory
We will stand and praise His holy name
We will sing of His infinite mercy
We will stand in this war here today

We will stand as our God gets the glory
We will stand and praise His holy name
We will sing of His infinite mercy
We will stand in this war here today
We will stand in this war here today

“I say to myself
The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
– Lamentations 3:24

“The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.”
– Deuteronomy 28:7

Prayer

Invisible power,
effective and strong,
comforting my heart
all the day long.

Letters of love,
affectionate and pure;
He receives every one
of that I am sure.

Songs with feeling,
happiness and despair,
never rejected,
He answers all prayer.

Giving. It’s the new black.

This post is dedicated to Sevenly. I love Sevenly. I love what they do. I love the causes they support. I love what they stand for. I love that they are changing the world. I love that they let me (and you if you want) change the world with them.

Sevenly is all about giving. AND I love that. So give. Not for praise, adoration, recognition, or acceptance. Give because it’s right. Give because that is something that binds us together. Everyone can give. I give time a lot because it is more readily available. I don’t have much money to give, but I still give it too. Give love. Give hope. Give grace. Give peace. Give laughter. Just GIVE!!! You might just change the world.

[day 13] Thirty Day Photo Challenge: September 2012 Edition

Today’s photo is of the verses that go with my earlier post, Jesus: Calmer of Anxiety. Being anxious has been a struggle of mine, especially during Grad school. I don’t like failing and tend to hold too high of a standard on myself. This story reminds me of the calm that should be in my life. Why should I be afraid?? I have faith! It is enough.

Day 13:

Overwhelmed

Completely overwhelmed again
Dazed, confused, alone and then
Try to find where to begin
Completely overwhelmed again

Must purge this pollution
So start a revolution
Of impolite intrusion
To purge this pollution

Back to when it started
Where my heart was hardened
And kept from begging pardon
Go back to when it started

Overwhelmed and surrounded
Can’t you see I’m being hounded
Save me fast because I’m drowing
Overwhelmed and surrounded

Don’t know how to free myself
Always doing something else
My mind is sick; I need your help
Don’t know how to free myself

Give me truth because I want more
This is my way of asking for
Someone to unlock the door
Give me truth because I want more

Completely overwhelmed again
Dazed, confused, alone and then
Try to find where to begin
God rescues me once again.

The greatest of these is…

LOVE. That’s the answer. Love is the greatest.

Back in December of last year, I found out about Art Journaling. Basically, it’s taking a day, word, time of life, question, etc and making art from it. (If you want to see other people’s journal pictures/inspirations my Blogged and Paper boards on pinterest have links to them.) I used the word “love.” AND with my art journal, some paint, colored pencils, homemade modge podge, some oil pastels, and a couple of pages ripped from an old stinky book (no way I was gonna read a smell that bad. GROSS!) this is what happened :)

This page (and post) was inspired by Continue reading

Mirror, Mirror

“Mirror, mirror on the wall”
Now what’s up with that?
“Who’s the fairest of them all?”
That tells me where you’re at.

If you’re stuck in front of your mirror
You know it can’t be healthy
There is a way to see life a lot clearer
And it will not be so deadly
Mirrorism is a term
It has no definition
It will make you twitch and squirm
And alter your position Continue reading

Light

You have a glow
That needs to grow
You have a light
Now make it bright
Make it big for the world to see
Let it shine through you, straight to me
To her, to him
Let it shine to them
To every nation and people
From a hut to a steeple
To the youngest of children, the oldest of old
You have a light and a hope that none should withhold
Now I ask for you to give
Your light to the world, that they may live
It is your choice, your own, not mine
But whatever you do will affect all time.
