May I Have This Dance

I love it when God shows us things in the manner in which only we the individual can understand.

For some it may be a feeling others a vision but for me God uses music.

I find joy and understanding in all types of music.

Since I was child I could go off into whatever land I imagined perhaps with green skies ,blue grass, purple moons.
I believe for me He teaches me not only with His word but with tools He knows Only I will understand at that moment.

We have all heard the saying music soothes the savage beast.

Well there has been a beast inside of me that I clearly recognized today during the sermon of Hope.

The beast that we all deal with and that is, our own will.

As I spoke in another posting it is my time to start at the beginning,time to weed His Garden.

I must say I feel embarrassed in front of the Lord when I have to hand the same old same old things over. I guess I figure How many times can He possibly stand to listen to pain and dissapointment in my heart. I feel that know matter how much I learn and know in my heart,my head gets the better of me.

Today I once again laid it at the cross.

My offenses, My envy, My covetting, My lost desires of my heart smothered by anger.

But are they really lost or are they just not right at this time in my life?

Father Knows Best and that's all I need know.

I left today feeling I had done the right thing handing it over but there was still that feeling of hopelessness in my heart.
Kevins words rung strongly in my mind
Hopelessness is a slow death.
Fruit of the Spirit kept playing in my head. Followed by the words Child of War
Am I child of God that is in a battle for freedom from my past my present but mostly myself?
Is this a war we all face daily?
Am I alone in this?
I couldn't stand to think anymore so I turned on the radio UCB ya No I didn't want to hear a worship song as I was in a pity me mode.
So I switched to CD mode.
Steve had put a CD in that he made and the song started

Here are the lyrics.

The Song is called The Third Hoorah!

WarChild, dance the days and nights away ---
sweet child, how do you do today?
When your back's to the wall,and your luck is your all,
then side with whoever you may.
SEEK that which within lies waiting to begin
the fight of your life that is everyday.
Dance with the WarChild ---
WarChild, dance the days and nights away ---
sweet child, how do you do today?
In the heart of your heart, there's the tiniest part
of an urge to live to the death ---
with a sword on your hip and a cry on your lips
to strike LIFE in the inner child's breast.
Dance with the WarChild ---
WarChild, dance the days and nights away ---sweet child, how do you do today?

May I have this dance?
It would be my pleasure Lord.
Thankyou for asking when I didn't have the courage to.

When Cats Attack... (The Grocery Bags)

Plan B

I am feeling the strong need to share with you my past week at work.
I wish that I was writing about the humour of retail but this is not the case.
I would like to start off with making a statement

We were first conceived in the mind of God.

Three young girls throughout this past week came to my counter to pay for their purchase.
The first girl said as she placed her product on the counter
"Don't judge me"
The second "Oh well He's paying for it"
The third just hung her head in shame.
Three different attitudes in the same situation.

I was filled with many thoughts:

You see Plan B is an emergency contraceptive aka The morning after pill
We now sell it. It is placed nicely within our contraceptive section.
My hands are tied for I am not allowed to comment but they can't stop me from praying immediately.

This product seems to the "B" all "END" all product for the times we live in.
You see for less than $40.00 you can terminate a potential pregnancy and mom and dad need never know.

Seriously Really????

Now with all that being said my attitude was different back when I was their age,back before I knew my best friend and His plans for me.
You see ladies my daughter is 29 years old and I am 45 years old.

This struck me tonight while at Junior High.
As Brandon Maracle delivered a beautiful devotion on faith, I looked around the room at the children and their thirst for God,the innocence in their faces and wondered
Will satan tempt these fine young children as they grow physically in maturity.
I wondered how Mark and Rhonda see their youth growing in this world.

How can we spread the word to our young ladies and gentleman that they are worthy and are truly loved despite their need for perhaps physical love in their lives.

There will be times when they may question the need or desire for physical touch as apposed to being blessed with the unseen true loving touch of God.

Why do we all at some point think physical touch is the B all end all?
I admit I thought that at 15
This is not to say I have regrets in anyway shape or form
"For I know the plans I have for you"

I know that now and am grateful for His love and strength throughout the rough period of ridicule and judgement I endured.

So my question is how do we minister to these young kids in the world?
God is not permitted in school anymore
He is not allowed in the work place

I wonder though where we might be today if Mary had chosen plan B
So I pray for the children of this world that we are able to share that

Can I get an AMEN?

Pulling The First Weed

Well ladies if you read my last post
I spoke about tending to the Lords garden in His temple.
Well I pulled the first weed out tonight and now I ask for prayers of strength.
Tomorrow (Sunday) will be the first day weedless.
Well at least one weed.
Many more to tend to but this is my first step to breaking the bondage of addiction.
He gives us free will in everything we do.
My choice is
