A stirring song

Casting Crowns song…The Altar and The Door/Steve Fee Song…I don’t know who wrote this so I give credit to both!

A great song that captured my heart lately.  We sing this at church, but the words got into my heart today…

Giver of every breath I breathe
Author of all eternity
Giver of every perfect thing
To You be the glory
Maker of Heaven and of Earth
No one can comprehend Your worth
King over all the universe
To You be the glory
And I am alive because I’m alive in YouIt’s all because of Jesus I’m alive
It’s all because the blood of Jesus Christ
That covers me and raised this dead man’s life
It’s all because of Jesus I’m alive
I’m alive, I’m alive

Giver of every breath I breathe
Author of all eternity
Giver of every perfect thing
To You be the glory
Maker of Heaven and of Earth
No one can comprehend Your worth
King over all the universe
To You be the glory

And I am alive because I’m alive in You

It’s all because of Jesus I’m alive
It’s all because the blood of Jesus Christ
That covers me and raised this dead man’s life
It’s all because of Jesus

Every sunrise sings Your praise
The universe cries out Your praise
I’m singing freedom all my days
Now that I’m alive

I’m alive, I’m alive, I’m alive

Stop and think about it…

It’s a sad day when we take God out of the country and then when it is Christmas season everybody rushes around buying gifts for “Christmas”.  It’s sad when we take God out of the country and want any mention of God not to be in the public eye yet we take off the day from work because of “Christmas” – which is a Christian holiday! 

Our country was founded on the freedom of religion not freedom from religion.

Just a quick thought…





Health Matters…

I have been experiencing some joint pain since August and I went to the doctor and he confirmed it was Rheumatoid arthritis and he did some testing to see if it was caused by something well when I went back in late September I got two shots one in my ankle and one in my knuckle.(yes, it hurt).  I went back two weeks ago to see if I would test positive again for something called Celiac disease (wheat allergy) and I found out that I do have it most likely.  I will have some further testing but it doesn’t look good for me to eat Pizza, pasta, etc.  That stinks!!! 

Pray that I will have the discipline to make this change if it’s needed.  I will update after Christmas on this since I will have to go to a specialist…YUCK!!!





UPDATE….

12 12 2007

I have come to find out this summer is going to be full of changes.  God is starting to get me out of my comfort zone.   I guess he is once again challenging me to step out of the boat.  He is the best in rocking the boat.    Some of them will be awesome and am REALLY looking forward to these changes (one thing a co-worker is leaving for Idaho in June and I will probably have a little more say in what I do).  The change at this job could cause changes at my second job as in less hours there – I really enjoy working there so that is bad 😦

Another change is a move that a good friend is making.  At least I know she is a phone call away but it’s not the same as being in the same town.

God has been good to me in my times with him while I have been reading the Old Testament and the very first books and I have realized the sacrifice that Jesus made on my behalf. I can’t imagine living under the  sacrifices anymore.   I am truly thankful.  I am in Numbers right now – sort of dull – it’s talking about the position of all the tribes…but why was it important to record that in history?  I guess that’s a good question.  I am also reading Matthew and I love how Christ challenges us to lose our life for his sake – hard, impossible yes but with the Spirit guiding and stirring in us God works himself out in our life. 

I have been in an ice storm and the beauty of the trees with the ice on them is incredible.  I was driving and thought of God’s handiwork yet the beauty can cause the trees to be destroyed, homes to be damaged, and a lot of people are without power.  It kind of reminds me how humans are God’s masterpiece yet their lives can be destroyed, families in disarray, and they live without the power of God in their lives….wow…more later….
