I am beautifully in over my head

563831_598162276877412_2110602354_n

I have come to this place in my life
I’m full but I’ve not satisfied
This longing to have more of you
I can feel it my heart is convinced


I’m thirsty my soul can’t be quenched
You already know this but still
Come and do whatever you want to


I’m standing knee deep
But I’m out where I’ve never been
I feel you coming
And I hear your voice on the wind


Would you come and tear down the boxes
That I have tried to put you in
Let love come teach me who you are again


Take me back to the place
Where my heart was only about you
And all I wanted was just to be with you
Come and do whatever you want to


Further and further
My heart moves away from the shore
Whatever it looks like
Whatever may come I am yours


Further and further
My heart moves away from the shore
Whatever it looks like
Whatever may come I am yours


Then you crash over me and
I’ve lost control but I’m free
I’m going under, I’m in over my head
And you crash over me
I’m where you want me to be
I’m going under, I’m in over my head
Whether I sink, whether I swim
It makes no difference
When I’m beautifully in over my head
Whether I sink, whether I swim
It makes no difference

When I’m beautifully in over my head
I’m beautifully in over my head
I’m beautifully in over my head

Ye desire, and have not | Envy

index

You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it.

And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong–you want only what will give you pleasure.

Something I am working on at the moment.

I cannot wait to share on this.

Avoid A Leaky Life | Keep Your Heart With All Keeping

20c598737add79b7d127ce764e27a140

 Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.( Proverbs 4:23)

My struggle with this scripture has always been how can I possible guard my heart and keep it open at the same time. It all sounds complex when you think about it but it’s not.

Everything about your life is linked to the condition of your heart.

We have been assigned and commanded to watch over our hearts. Our hearts are the center piece of everything we do. So we stand guard, watch over, shield and fortify our hearts. This is the only way we can keep from doing hurt and getting hurt.

Keep your heart with all keeping!!

If there is one area I really suck at is this. One minute I got my power proof on and the next I am on floor. So I continually have to run to God for help.

The scripture says, out of hearts flows issues of life. Render it. Keep it more than any other keeping, if there is anything like that.

A heart is a source of all affections and consciousness. Actions and what we speaks have no choice but to just follow the leading of the heart.

For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

Guard your heart, avoid a leaky life.

There is no effective guarding unless God guards.

The tortoise,

I have been reading, understanding turtles and tortoises for dummies. Random, Yes!

Tortoises often pull in all four legs and their head so that the shell protects them from predators. Some tortoises can even close their shell, giving additional protection. How I wish we could all be this sensitive when it comes to guarding our hearts. Are you preserving your heart? When there is something threatening to your heart and the life of God in you, pull all in and shell away. Like a tortoise pull in to guard your heart.

Giant Tortoise Shell 2

Got protection ! The shell, the Word of God.

Tortoises have hard shells. These shells are made of bone and the outer covering of the shell is made of keratin, much like human fingernails.

Let’s say the shell is the word of God. His word shields us from all kinds of distractions. How often do we run to word of God when our hearts are unguarded? The word of God is a proper remedy for all diseases. Jesus can heal the sickness in our hearts. Only if we allow Him.

We guard our hearts through, prayer, hearing, reading, meditation, and above all, by applying to Jesus to preserve and keep them. He is the greatest keeper of it.

My child, listen and be wise: Keep your heart on the right course ( Proverbs 23:19)

Avoid A Leaky Life | Guard Your Heart

20c598737add79b7d127ce764e27a140

Guard your heart.  You will have a leaky life if you don’t have a guarded heart

Our feelings are a result of our focus.

Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. (Proverbs 4:23)

Something I will be working on tonight :)

.

Love should be patient.

1544382_788108361216135_99093889_n

Patience and time at war!!

Thought for today :)

Patience does not mean to passively endure.

It means to be farsighted enough to trust the end result of a process.

Patience means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night and see the dawn.

Impatience means to be so shortsighted as to not be able to see the outcome.

The lovers of God never run out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full.

HAPPY THURSDAY :)

1 Corinthians 13:4, Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud!

Paul’s second self | Timothy

Young but not clueless : Jeremiah, Joseph, Daniel, Esther, Mary, Timothy.

Leadership was never my favorite topic. My first leadership training was not pleasant at all. I was 16 years old, had no interest in attending these type of classes. I showed up late, as if that was not enough………, I had no bible or notebook. I felt terribly threatened at the thought that I was the only young person there.

My mind was elsewhere. I remember thinking to myself:

Why has this man invited me here?

I just got saved like a year-back. That’s yesterday.

I am young and completely clueless about leadership. What do I know?

I don’t know the bible.

I am shy.

Little did I know that this had NOTHING TO DO WITH ME. It’s not about you!! And you are not the first one to pull the whole, “inexperienced and timid” card.  Jeremiah also tried it;

The LORD replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. (Jeremiah 1:7)

Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity. (1 Timothy 4:12)

You were born for such a time as this! SEEKING FOR TIMOTHY.

Get the word out Timothy! Timothy get the word out!!

Teach all these things…………, Teach believers with your life: by word, conduct, love, faith, integrity.

Stay at your post reading scripture, giving counsel, teaching. And that special gift of ministry you received when the leaders of the church laid their hands on you. Keep that dusted off and in use it.

This is what Paul said about Timothy;

“I have no one like-minded, who will truly care about you. For they seek their own not the things of Jesus Christ”.

He went on to say, you know the proof of him, that as a child serves a father, so he served me in a furtherance of the Good News.

Other versions say you know His Character, His quality is clear, you know His qualifications and He has proved himself.

A young man of tried character. A specimen of tried worth. Timothy lived for Jesus, He proved himself by his lifestyle. Both his words and action were at work. He pursued the things of God, he was not busy with his own concerns. He fully relied on Jesus and did not worry about his life.

Where is the Timothy of our generation? A young teacher, leader and partner in the apostolic works. It’s time to unleash your Timothy and turn this world upside down for Jesus. Lead.

Seeking Timothy!!!

Today at our church we are praying for next generation leadership, leaders of excellence and action.
