Our Hope

“Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭33:18-22‬ ‭KJV

No Matter What

“No Matter What” by: Ryan Stevenson
A lot of us grew up believing
At any moment we could lose it all
And at the drop of a hat
God might turn His back and move on
A lot of us feel like we blew it
Thinking that we’re just too far gone
But I want you to know
There’s still a hope for you now
No matter what you’ve done
You can’t erase His love
Nothing can change it
You’re not separated
No matter what
There’s never been a better time to get honest
There’s never been a better time to get clean
So come as you are
Run to the cross and be free
Oh, be free
No matter what you’ve done
You can’t erase His love
Nothing can change it
You’re not separated
No matter where you run
He’s always holding on
You’re still a daughter, you’re still a son
No matter what
I don’t know what you’ve been taught
Don’t know what you’ve been told
All I know is my God
Will never let go of you, no
And I don’t know what you’ve seen
Don’t know what you’ve been through
All I know is my God
Will never let go of you
He’ll never let go!
He’ll never, never, never let you go
No matter what you’ve done
You can’t erase His love
Nothing can change it
You’re not separated
No matter where you run
He’s always holding on
You’re still a daughter, you’re still a son
No matter what
You’re still a daughter, you’re still a son!
No matter what

July/“Celebrate the Star in You”

JULY | “CELEBRATE THE STAR IN YOU” TAG

Purple Rose has tagged me in the July tag she and Dollface created together! She did the questions and Dollface did the rest.

Dollface’s Blog: https://dollfacedwriter.wordpress.com/

Thanks Purple Rose for the tag! This has been fun!!! ❤

DollFace writes: 

The Meaning of this Tag:

In the United States, July is a month about celebrating our freedom and independence that our soldiers and veterans have sacrificed their safety, time with family, and even their lives for. On the fourth of July we shoot off fireworks, grill outdoors, and spend time together as we remember their sacrifice and thank God for our country.

For this month’s tag, remember the sacrifices and hardships you’ve been through, look in the mirror, think about how far you’ve come, dream about where you want to go, and see yourself for the beautiful person you are. I hope you’ll see that YOU are someone worth celebrating. Celebrate the star in you because you, friend, shine like one. ❤

Make Every Word Count,

Dollfaced Writer

  7. Have fun and enjoy the rest of your month! ❤

Here are the questions:

1. If you were a celebrity and had to change your name, what would it be?

Willow Heart? 🤷‍♀️

 

2. What creature(s) describe your personality? Why?

I took the quiz and I got…

ESFJ- Horse

ESFJs much like horses, are very people focused and dependable. ESFJ focus mainly on other peoples emotions and how their actions will effect the people around them. They are very naturally aware of how other people feel and what they need. They want everyone to be happy and content and seek to accomplish harmony. They do not understand indifference and prefer warm and caring environments. They base much of their actions on knowledge gathered from past experiences. Much like horses, the ESFJ have a respect for authority and duty, and tend to follow the rules.

***But I’m also a little like a slow loris, deer and owl, all except for the part of having to be organized and be on a dependable schedule.👀

INFP- Slow Loris

The Slow Loris, much like the INFP are very unique and rare creatures. Both the INFP and the Slow Loris are very internal beings. INFPs have a strong sense of right and wrong, and they stand by what set of morals they believe in. They have a fun and often offbeat sense of humor, which everyone may not understand but the people who do certainly appreciate it. INFPs are usually very loyal and caring to the people they choose to let into their inner circle. They have a full and imaginative inner world and in that aspect they resemble the unique and amazing Slow Loris.

ISFJ- Deer

Both the deer and the ISFJ are introverted and reserved. They often live their lives based on a dependable schedule and have strong emotional ties to past experiences.  ISFJ believe in harmony and seek to make the people around them happy and comfortable. The ISFJ are often seen as kind and dependable, much  like the adorable and sweet deer.

INTP- Owl

The owl is often seen as a symbol of wisdom and solitude, which is very much like the INTP. The INTP are very logical and analytical. The INTP want everything around them to make sense. Both owls and INTPs are very inward beings, and spend a lot of time inside their own logical minds, figuring things out and making sense of the world. The INTP do not ask for much and often can get by with the simple things in life, much like an owl who lives as an independent hunter.

3. Share five songs that describe your life.

“Fighting for Me”-Riley Clemmons

“God Only Knows”- King & Country

“Scars”-I Am They

“Warrior”-Hannah Kerr

“Haven’t Seen It Yet”-Danny Gokey

This final song, although not my usual Christian, was the story of the younger me )

“It’s a Heartache”-Bonnie Tyler

4. What movie(s) closely resembles your life? Why?

Sorry Purple Rose…Honestly not trying to copy your answer here, but I have told myself so many times this was a movie about me.

I have always related to Belle. And actually every time I have done one of those Quiz Tests to see which Disney Princess I am, I end up Belle, every single time!

I, like Belle, have devoured books all my life, especially as a teen. I attracted the wrong guys like Gaston and Beast all my life-the rude and the arrogant.

The funny part is, I was picky in my teen years, had high expectations, and that’s why I didn’t actually go out on an “official” date till I was 18 and graduated lol. 😆

My first date was with a guy that was my love at first sight! I fell completely head-over-heels for him! I just knew we would eventually get married.

But he wasn’t as infatuated with me as I was him, and it devastated me. After he broke my heart, he made it clear he wanted to see other girls.

It tore what little self-esteem I had left to shreds, and I starting going out with the ones I felt sorry for after that, which is a big no-no. The messed up ones drag you down every time.

I stopping caring anymore. Things went down-hill for me after that. I don’t think I ever recovered from that actually…

5. Name three things you’re good at.

Seeing the good in people

Trying to love all people like Jesus would do

Listening and keeping secrets

 

6. What is your favorite life advice to give?

You only have one life, make the most of it.”

7. What do people love most about you? (Ask someone close for help on this one)

* Refer to question #5

Empathetic and compassionate.

Nonsense, Mayhem & Other Tomfoolery

I think Puff the Magic Dragon 🐉 may have hijacked my phone, ’cause sometimes when I commented and sent, POOF it vanished and gone!

Too bad for the effort made on that last post response, maybe it only traveled by “Time Machine,” back to the Renaissance?

It’s anyone’s guess at this point in time–a glitch, server or fairy?–there seems to be no reason or rhyme!

Possibly it was a yeti, a monkey or a moose, All I know is mayhem has certainly been turned loose!

So pardon if I don’t answer that question or wonderful post, I seem to be lost in limbo at the moment, or perhaps I’M only a ghost???🤔👻🤖👽😈🤡

Here’s a 30 second Mayhem commercial for your viewing enjoyment while you’re waiting on my response😢…

Sunday Music: Church Of Rhythm | Life Is Worth Fight For

God is truly amazing in the things He does! He is a mystery at times, and His ways are past finding out! But He always has a purpose and plan. I pray this message reaches the person it was meant for, because He laid this subject on two of us on the same day here on WP. Here’s Stu’s story. I am so thankful that you are still with us brother, living to tell your testimony with boldness! It’s a very powerful testimony! Y’all read it for yourself!

Something to Stu Over

Life is tough!

Life does feel like a merry-go-round at times.

Sometimes it is spinning so fast you feel like a flag hanging on to a pole by a thread.

And I for one wanted off that merry-go-round when I was a teen. Yes, that’s right! There was a time when I thought of ending it all.

I tried. I just didn’t cut deep enough.

My best friend had a gun to his head. God intervened.

Some of my friends were, sadly, successful 😥

The thing is…I’ve been there.

I’ve had those thoughts were I felt the world would be better without me in it. Where I felt alone and no one cared.

But that was just the depression talking. I did have people who cared.

And had I succeeded my life would have ended. No marriage, no Brandon or Erin and the pain of having me gone would have…

🎶Jesus on the Main Line…🎵

Hello sweet friends! It’s another hot scorcher here in the South! 94 degrees to be exact!

Stay hydrated my friends!💦 💧

…….Most of you can probably sing the rest of the verses…. ‘Jesus on the mainline, tell Him what you want!’

He already knows your every care, but He longs to hear your voice–for that mainline just between Him and you!

Be encouraged today. God really is listening. Never doubt that!

Hang in there! Never give up on His plans for your life!–Those plans are to prosper and not harm you! To give you a HOPE and a FUTURE! He will never give up on you!

So now you know why you are fighting the fight of your life right now–but you are strong, and you WILL do valiantly!!!

💜💙💚

If you were a fly on my wall, you would probably think I’m talking to myself, but I’m just talking with my Jesus.

I tell Him ALLL, 👀 and I do mean all, my troubles…I tell Him how much I need Him, how much I love Him, how my heart is hurting for my loved ones, and I give Him my praise and worship.

Just a little talk with Jesus will make it right… And it will ALL be alright… That line to Him is never too busy!!! Dial him up!💃🎶🎵✌️ ✌️ ✌️
