Word of God Speak by Kutless
I'm finding myself at a loss for words
Ans the funny thing is it's okay
The last thing I need is to be heard
But to hear what You would say

Word of God Speak
WOuld You poor down like rain?
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You're in this place
Please le me stay and rest
In Your holiness
The Word of God Speak

I'm finding myself in the midst of You
Beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need, is to be with You
And in the quiet hear your voice

Word of God Speak
WOuld You poor down like rain?
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You're in this place
Please le me stay and rest
In Your holiness
The Word of God Speak

Draw Me Close
Draw me close to You
Never Let me Go
I'd Lay it all down again
To hear You say that I'm Your Friend

Help me find a way to bring me back to You

You're all I want
You're all I've ever needed
You're all I want
Help me know You are near

You are my desire
No one esle will do
No one esle can take Your place
To feel the warmth of Your embrace

lack of sleep!!!

August 08 2005
okay sorry im a huge Kutless fan....
"Strong Tower"
When I wander through the desert
And I'm longing for my home
All my dreams have gone astray
When I;m stranded in the valley
And I'm tired and all alone
It seems like I've lost my way

I go running to Your mountain
Where Your mercy sets me free

You are my strong tower
Shelter over me
Beautiful and mighty
Everlasting King
You are my strong tower
Fortess when I'm weak
Your name is true and holy
And Your face is all I seek

In the middle of my darkness
In the midst of all my fear
You're my refuge and my hope
When the storm of life is raging
And the thunder's all I fear
You speak softly to my soul

i think the lack of sleep is finally catching up! im sooo exhausted!!!

came in early tonight...as my mom says!!! but o well! i think this is like tha 1st night in a long time i have been home b4 10! its amazing as she says!!!

Love Through Christ!

How lovely is your dwelling place
O Lord Almighty
My soul doth long and even faints for You
For here my heart is satisfed
Within Your Presence
I sing beneath the shadow of Your wings

Better is one day in Your courts
Better is one day in Your house
Better is one day in Your courts

i just got done reading "He Chose The Nails" by Max Lucado...that book is amazing!!! i recommend it!!! lol!!! i learned soo much through that book!!!

For all at once all sin is atoned for on the cross, the entire Fall is erased, and the whole obligation to Satan, and the entire sentence passed upon the Fall of Adam is torn up, cancelled, and annulled by the nails of Jesus.
~Count Niklolaus Ludwig Von Zinzendorf

"Christ is King" no matter what language you Speak
~Max Lucado

so much is going on in my life at tha moment...God has shown me new things and still hasnt answered some things but i have patience for those things!!! its insane but what God has been telling me is wonderful!!!!

August 02 2005
God did some amazing things in New York City this week!! im sooo happy i got to be apart of it!!!
we went to NYC to paint a school called Thedore Roosevelt High School...250 college students...1 floor of a school...a couple hundred gallons of paint...was Paint the Town!!!
we got to help this school basically....they have the highest drop out rate in NYC...they have 20 cops that patrol tha school everyday...metal detetors...soo everyone please be in prayer for the students and teachers that work and go to that school!!!
we also got to prayer walk on college campuses...
New York City:
191 college campuses
1 million college students
1% claim they know Jesus Christ
wow that is a lot!!! sooo if everyone can keep New York City college students in your prayers thanks!!
my church group got to pass out flyers one day to help promot tha Block Party on afternoon...i loved passing them out!! i loved tha look on the lil kids faces when they got free gum and a chance to come play games and eat for free!!!
when we 1st got there at tha beginning of tha week!! tha dorms we stayed in didnt have AC at all!! but of course by tha next day they moved us to new dorms that had AC!!!
i love New York City...im soo happy i got the chance to go!! i had a blast w/ my church group there!!!

O Christ, be the center
of our lives
be the place
we fix our eyes
be the center
of our lives.

Every gift reveals Gods love....but no gift reveals his love more than the gifts of the cross. They came, not wrapped in paper, but in passion. Not placed around a tree, but a cross. And not covered with ribbions, but sprinkled with blood.

Mighty, awesome, wonderful
Is the holy cross
Where the Lamb laid down His life
To lift us from the fall
Mighty is the power of the cross!!

My body breaks beneath the weight
Of toil and trouble, fears and fights
Sickness in me, world against me
I cry to you tonight

Christ have mercy
Lord have mercy
Holy Healer
Strength within
Pass me not
Forsake me not, Lord

My enemies are whispering
They pray my name may die
So few to trust, so few are just
I cry to you tonight

Christ have mercy
Lord have mercy
Holy Healer
Strength within
Pass me not
Forsake me not, Lord
Amen, Amen

My heart is dim, Its always been
I turn from what is right
Passions of youth fear me from truth
I Cry to you tonight

Christ have mercy
Lord have mercy
Sinless Savior
Judge of men
Pass me not
Forake me not, Lord
Amen Amen

i love that song!!! its by Shaun Groves if you didnt know!!!

reading the bible!!!

July 09 2005
wow!!! yesterday i read 1 John and today i read Ephesians!!! God showed me so much threw those 2 books of the bible!!!

Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
~1 John 2:15

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear because fear has to go with punishment. The one who fears is not made in perfect love.
~John 4:18

I keep asking that God of our Lord Jesus Christ the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that you may know him better!!
~Ephesians 1:17

There is one body and one Spirit-just as you were called to one hope when you were called-one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and all in all!
~Ephesians 4:4-6

Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devils schemes.
~Ephesians 6:11

those are some of the verses that really stuck out to me!! i have written down a lot more!! lol!! but yes..God does show you some amazing things through the Bible!

Unto You be glory, glory,
Unto You be honor,
Unto You be praises, Jesus,
Forever and ever.

Love through Christ!!
