Never far from my soul
Desiring to be the in all of what consumes me
My heart is burning for words of affirmation
As my words of acclamation draw him near
My soul cries out
He yearns to fulfill my own desires
As he holds his hands out with love
His grace has no boundaries
I am entangled in the strings of his glory
As feelings of a prisoner arise
He bares down with truth
His anger is slow upon me
For how gracious is the Lord God Almighty
Quick to love with no fault
Your splendor and glory
Will flow from my mouth singing
How Great is the Lord
For you take me as I am
You daughter of this generation
Calling me forth in your name
"I will exalt you, my God and King, and praise your name forever and ever. I will praise you every day; yes, I will praise you forever. Great is the Lord! He is most worth of praise! No one can measure his greatness." Psalm 145:1-3

In all of the going to God, it is easy to still want what I want and be selfish about it. There have been many of times where I wanted to completely go against what God was telling me to do, because selfishly I wanted to fulfill my desires and that time, and not on his. It has only been of late that I have realized that God is opening his hands and fulfilling my desires one at a time.....on HIS time. I am content in this now, because I am reminded that God would not have placed a passion or a desire in my heart if he didn't intend to fully follow through with it.
I say all of this because it sets my foundation and building blocks for having and living a fulfilling life. I want to experience the world, I want to laugh without seizing, I want to smile at the little things in life. Granted, I have been doing all of these things....but now I have been reminded of the abundance grace God has on me, and how much of life he wants me to experience. He doesn't want me to worry about anything, but to come to him and talk it out. What a mighty God we serve! A God who wants all things good for us! Amen~
side note: can we please go dancing again girls? :)

How do you make the words that flow from your mouth believable to another person? How do I make them convincible and life altering? It’s all up in there, just waiting to get poured out, but when you finally get the chance youre just in a rush and it comes out sounding like a mush of crap.
How do you let a person know that you are really sorry. You apologize and explain as thoroughly as you feel you can, that you made a mistake, but somehow you just know that they’re not going to buy it.
Why do we do and say the things we do?
We do them…..then we think about them…..and then we realize that we should have thought about them before we did them. That was our first mistake.
There comes a point after finding out that you made this mistake that YOU JUST WANT TO RUN TO THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN YOU CAN AND SCREAM AS LOUD AS YOU CAN…YOU WANT THEM TO KNOW YOURE SORRY…AND YOU DON’T KNOW HOW ELSE TO DO IT.
Well there’s my mumbo jumbo pile of mush for the night……I am pretty clear of the fact that it makes no sense to anyone.
