I'd been crafting my own miracles.
Fitting broken puzzle pieces together,
as best i could.
I'd been running, doing, trying my whole life through,
tredding water and making a way.
The scars to show me just how far i'd come,
because of how far i was coming from.

Until i wandered into the garden,
like my Brother had done before me.
A voice like the autum wind spoke to me,
a rolling tide of tall oak trees,
and He let. this. pass. from. me.

I was begging for a miracle,
something my eyes couldn't look far enough to see.
I was searching for a strand of hope,
something to set my wildfire free.
See i was born with a passion and a need.
I was born a raging fire,
ever waiting for the breeze.

So i set sail on a ship filled with hope and promises,
of which my king provided.
And i trusted the One who met with me,
in the garden.
Who called to me in Egypt.
Who washed my feet.
How many refrences will it take to make you understand?

When i reached land i was greeted there by something i didn't believe,
Something of a hawk with the voice of a lion flapped his wings,
and brought forth the winds of change.
And set my soul on ablaze.

I'm sitting watching a miracle,
as he breathes, and sings, and loves, and lives. 
all for the man who made me.

We fly on that autum wind,
and make our home in those tall oak trees.
We are guided by The Way,
the scars of yesterday have long since vanished.
My eyes are open now, i can see.

Time marches on.

I'm pretty sure this is one of my first posts as a semi-independent adult, so don't think me foolish when i speak from experience...

In my grown up endeavors, i've learned all kinds of fun new phrases. Things like, financial responsibility, car payment, $0 checking balance, time management, deadline, all night-er (no, i was never one to jeopardize sleep for fun, not even in highschool.), career plan, and many, many more. I have screamed, cried (you should all know how opposed to that i am), hit (Chris :) bless his patient heart), hid, and i can only assume a lot of other childish emotional responses appropriate for a mature adult like myself.

There is a point to this, i promise. And it's not to complain about hard college can be. Yes, college is challenging at times, but you know what? Life is hard, i know more than enough real adults with struggles of their own that can attest to that (and kids, for that matter.) If someone mislead you into thinking it would be easy, i'm sorry. Hey, you know where there are a lot of good stories on how hard life can be? The bible. Just sayin' ;]
I know, from experience, how hard it can be to juggle ten things at once. How frustrating and disheartening it is when everything that can go wrong does. And it's almost worse when it's in sequential order, because you didn't sleep last night, and there's no way you're going to tonight. Sometimes there's nothing you can do besides pray, and push through it.

I'm writing today, to remind you, to remind myself, that i don't stop being a christian because "Everything's falling apart!" or "I just can't take it anymore!" Jesus didn't say, "Love your neighbor on a good day" or "Serve others when you have freetime."
He said, "For even I, the Son Of Man, came here not to be served but to serve others..." -Matthew 20:28
You don't think Jesus had a lot going on? What with saving mankind and everything?

I know it isn't always easy, life is hectic and even sad, sometimes. But we cannot forget our brother in the midst of all our anguish, or frustration. We were built for community, with the Father, and with each other. And we are not only called, but expected to love each other at all times. You have no idea what the person next to you might be going through, or how your "Christian behavior" because you're having a bad day, is affirming the non-believer at work, at school, at the store. We are not called to be christians when it's comfortable, when it's convinient, we are called to a Christ-like love AT ALL TIMES.

 "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." -John 15:13

"He answered: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" -Luke 10:27

"For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged." -Matthew 7:2

My Deepest Treasure...

He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds.
-Psalms 147:3
You who are wounded and broken, i speak to you from a place of experience, and a place of healing. Are you feeling shattered? Exhausted? i bring you good news, and hopefully some comfort. Your God, the creator of the universe, is calling to you. He's aching for you. You. his beloved and most treasured child. He's holding you, even when you can't feel Him. And the Master Seamstress has come to put you back together. Except He is not here to, "patch you up," He is here to make you NEW. Open your heart, and more importantly your wounds, to the Lover of your soul. Your Provider. I know it's hard to see it now, but the beauty He is making out of your brokeness right now, is going to be breathtaking. I know, you feel guilty and victimized, and used, but your past has been forgiven, and you are not what you do. You are made perfectly, you are precious, and breathtaking, and DEEPLY treasured. Let Him show you. Let him remind you.

you weren't made to do this alone.

"And since i, the master of the household have been called the prince of demons, how much more will it happen to you, the members of the household!" -Matthew 10:25

Take all these cuts, and make them shine
And all this pain I’ve held inside
So I can find my way home again
-Look Away by Thousand Foot Krutch

i am washed by the blood.
i am treasured by Someone far greater than those that hurt me, that lied to me.
we, we have been lied to.
we have been told that our worth, is determined by what we do, and not by who we are.
we are precious, and no one can take our place.
we have a lover, a savoir, a father, who GAVE HIS LIFE FOR US.
He DIED for us.
because we are everything to Him.
and He so desperately wants to be everything to us.

i have been believing lies.
lies that implied that doing what was right, what God wants me to do,
makes me less than equal down here.
that somehow the world was punishing me, for obeying my creator.
but that's not the case,
and He tried to prepare me for this.
the called my King the prince of darkness,
they nailed him to a cross.
who am i to expect anything less?
has the enemy changed all these years,
now he only attacks through lies from loved ones and ruined reputations?
the truth is, i am not fighting, we are not fighting each other, but rather the darkness of this world,
and spiritual wickedness in high places.
the enemy is terrified of me,
because i am a powerful woman of God,
and He has amazing things planned for me,
for all of us.
i am going to do more good than i could ever dream of,
i am going to help people, and lead them to Christ.
so that they might know the love that has been shown to me.

this is my testimoney;
we were all created for an individual purpose, and no one can take that from you.
if you're feeling different, ostracized, attacked?
because you are obviously doing something right,
if you've got the enemy that scared.
but you are not alone.
you are accepted and loved and needed, by the Big Man :]
the one who created life, and made each and every one of us.
let Him be your everything.
you weren't made to do this alone.

For wherever two or more are gathered, there am i in the midst of them...
-Matthew 18:20

Lately, God has been showing me the many different types of "church" or "worship".

I have found that i feel the closest to The Father when i'm singing, or snowboarding, or just driving. Whether i'm by myself or with someone else. And i think that may be important, finding God outside of Church or after Sunday. Don't get me wrong I love Church, especially the one's that i am involved in. But i'm sure there will be times in my life, and maybe yours, where finding the right church is difficult. And more than that, i think you'll find that God loves doing what YOU love doing. He loves spending time with you. I know that not everyone enjoys doing the same things that i do... but i ask you to open your heart and notice that when your doing whatever it is you enjoy, God is asking to do it with you.
