Good Morning Monday!(:

I'm finding myself at a loss for words
And 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 pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You're in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
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

Romans 8:38-39
38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Just thinking this morning, our sin separates us from God... but the scripture says, NOTHING, not ANYTHING in or our of this world can EVER serparate us from the everlasting Love of God. That's awe-some(:

1 Peter 1:19-21
19But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

20Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

21Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

John 1:1-5
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2The same was in the beginning with God.

3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

2 Peter 1:19-21
19We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

I'm PANICKING right now! This is really not good. I'm not even sure why I'm on here now. Just a denial for a few more moments of everything I need to get done. My car is a mess, my room is a mess, my laundry needs to be done, I am suppose to stay at Stasia's tonight, a paper that was due tonight I talked to my teacher about and she is awesome and letting me write it tonight and turn it in before midnight... Frontier is having me start my mornings over there for training, which is good, but really overwhelming to learn everything... by the time I get back to MVI Realty for the 2nd half of the day, I have a bunch of work on my desk to complete. I have something going on every Sunday night, Monday night, Tuesday night, Wednesday night, Thursday night, Friday night, and these are all things like classes, and church and things I can't cut out even if I wanted to. Even typing this out my franticnessss is becoming more apparent. AH. What I SHOULD do right now is stop panicking and start working. That's what I should be doing. OKAY! (: SO. Me and all my phalanges are going to get to writing this paper... and doing some psychology homework if I'm lucky. Head over to Stasias... OH, and I haven't been to the gym in 2 weeks!! AND I JUST KNEWWW my Nutrition teacher was looking at me when we were talking about exercise and diet. Haha, I just wanted to stand up and say ITS NOT MY FAULT!!! But of course that's probably not the correct or adult like reaction unfortunately.

In the midst of all this panicking... I got to work and got my paper done... and I've really felt like I needed to blog this whole last week. It's one thing to read your bible, but it's another to really meditate on scriptures and apply them to your life. I feel like I do that here. It was frivilous for me to blog I felt for a long time (that's why i never blogged! lol;), until I find something worth saying. A lot of what I do say isn't often worth saying to start with, so why in the world would I want to write it down to be recorded?! (:

A couple verses that have been on my mind and heart lately is 1stly Proverbs 1:7
Nothing shuts me up sometimes when I get frantic and panicky and overwhelmed, but as my mind was reeling a thousand miles per hour, going in about 6 directions at one time, thinking about this one guy, really concerned for his soul, and then my friend, she's hurting really bad and she needs the Lord, then there's this I need to do for the church, and then there's the girls, I need to help them out, and there's my parents, my sister, my homework, forget homework! I'm late for class!! ...


What does that even have to do with what I was thinking about you're wondering? Well, nothing... but that's kind of the point. There's a reason God says, "BE STILL, AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD."

Take a few minutes today and think about the fear of the Lord. Reverence Him as you ought. Kneel before Him and honor Him FIRST in your life and most importantly in your heart. EVERYTHING ELSE is all vanity in comparison.
