Be Blessed

He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power.
Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly,
Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.
~ Isaiah 40:29-31

blessed-to-be-a-blessing

Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.
So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people,
and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.
~ Galatians 6:9-10

Be Blessed

Life can be tiring
Draining and void of energy
May you not give up
Do good while you have the opportunity
Appreciation is not your reward
For that is only temporary
Thanks and good gestures
That last but for a moment
Eternal reward is what you seek
Your heart’s deepest desire
Hold tight the God’s strength
Run the race
But do not tire
Though life takes more than you can give
Enjoy every chance to live
Find rest in the shadow of His wings
Live in love and grace
Be kind
Be generous
Be patient
Be joyful
Be loving
Be gentle
Be honest
Be sincere
Be hopeful
Be grateful
Be blessed

NF ~ I’ll Keep On

Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet;
but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,
I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 3:13-14

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
~ Romans 8:28

For those moments when the oasis of life seems so distant. For the times when the desert seems to go on and on forever. For the moments where darkness is consuming. For the times when hope seems to fade with every hour. For the times you think you are too tired to press on. For the moments when you feel there is nothing left and the thought of death sounds peaceful.

Just listen. Close your eyes, and listen. Listen to the lyrics. Listen to God call to your heart. Listen for the strength of God to keep you going.

You were not meant to traverse this world on your own. It is exhausting. It is a struggle. In fact it is a battle everyday (Ephesians 6:12).  But you are not alone (Deuteronomy 31:8). God is with you always my friend.

All my love and may his peace surround you, his joy fill you, and his hope renew you.

Worn ~ Tenth Avenue North

Amazing how music just lines up with the heart and soul, speaking what often times I cannot!  I am worn indeed.  I am praying for strength, for endurance to run the race set before me, for the ability to continue to love though I am so broken, for the chance to shine once again brighter than ever before, yet right now I am so very worn.  Still I cling to the hope and promises of God; promises of a future filled with good and hope (Jeremiah 29:11).

For I have fully satisfied the weary soul,
and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.
~ Jeremiah 31:25

SleeP??!?

Hear my prayer, LORD; listen to my cry for mercy.
When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me.
~ Psalm 86:6-7 ~

Sleep is a Mystery!

Hurting heart
Racing thoughts
Running round and round
Could it have been different?
What then?
Lost in the crevices of pain
Tossing to and fro
Sleep is a mystery to me

Jumpy and anxious
Wondering what to do
Seeking guidance from the Lord
Yet round and round I go
Turning from one side to another
Staring aimlessly at the dark
Scenarios playing like movies in my mind
Sleep is a mystery to me

Constant state of alertness
Hearing every little noise
Desiring Your peace oh God
Still round and round I go
When will this resolve?
Will I ever be the same?
Sadness instead of slumber
Sleep is a mystery to me

Simplify Your Life

And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you?
He requires only that you fear the LORD your God,
and live in a way that pleases him,
and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul.
And you must always obey the LORD’s commands
and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good.
~ Deuteronomy 10:12-13

Simplify Your Life

Running around in circles
Chasing rules that never seem to end
Holding tight to expectations
Letting life wear you down

Burning out trying to live by the Law
Is God that hard to please?
Are you frustrated by requirements?
Trying so hard to be good

Relax, rest, renew
God knows the flesh and the heart
Perfection will never be gained
His expectations are more simple than that

Fear Him for who He is
Creator of the universe, beginning and the end
Love Him before all others
Stand in awe of His Holy name

Live in a way that pleases Him
Following His word not the world
Give love, mercy, grace, forgiveness
Focus on the eternal prize

Love the Lord with all your heart
Let Him love you in return
Share His love with all you encounter
Be the light He created you to be

Serve Him heart and soul
Set your goals upon the Kingdom
Put others before yourself
Love others like you have never loved before

Obey His commands
These three remain: faith, hope, love
Encompassing all the laws in only one word
LOVE
