I have so much to say and ZERO time to say it. For now I want to thank everyone who prayed and/or gave money to help me get there. The trip was beyond words and I will post some pictures later. I am headed to North Carolina for two weeks and will have to post after that. tHANKS AGAIN!

Divine Intervention

Divine Intervention by: Lecrae
Intro:
You know in intervention they tell you that you're hurting somebody who loves you, and divine intervention's no different, yea, the moment is now

Hook:
Here is my moment, here is my lifetime
All that I have I will give to You
In this moment, 'cause nothing really matters at all

Verse 1:
God created days, weeks, summer, spring, winter, fall
Yup, became weak so You could free us from the fall
You hold the earth in Your palm with Your great power
You always have the time the way You transcend hours
Wind and the waves tsunami is 'round
But You walk on top of them both
They humbly bow
Before I work I need a couple tools
You spoke the earth into existence, no auto tune
More than auto tune, more than minor key
'Cause I've been missing all the notes
In the minor keys and the major ones
And the key to life is coming to the end of it
And embracing Christ

Hook:
Here is my moment, here is my lifetime
All that I have I will give to You
In this moment, 'cause nothing really matters at all
Everything that this heart longs for other than You I will let die
Take all that I am 'cause nothing really matters right now
This is my moment

Verse 2:
I holla empty me
So hollow be my name
You're so immense
But condescend and dwell inside my frame
You restrain the waves
And tame fierce lions
I mean fierce liars, crush empires
We all hanging by a thread cutting at the wires
Ignorant that all the sin lead to hellfire
And when I yell fire, they tell me false alarm
'Cause they don't smell the smoke and they don't sense the harm
Something worse than the black plague's coming
And nothing under the sun can save us from it
There's no hope but divine intervention
And Christ saves victims who are dying from addiction

Hook:
Here is my moment, here is my lifetime
All that I have I will give to You
In this moment, 'cause nothing really matters at all
Everything that this heart longs for other than You I will let die
Take all that I am 'cause nothing really matters right now
This is my moment

Verse 3:
They say in God we trust
But what's the bigger sin
That we don't trust in Him
But trust the stuff on which its written (that's money)
'Cause we all dying and we all trying
To stay alive but the truth we ain't all buying
Those of us who buy it, We're never bought from
We gon' live free forever
We are gonna live forever in the Savior's arms
It's all needles in arms full of life's drugs
Lust, pride, hate, death running through our blood
Need a blood donor, need a transfusion
He's over hanging on the cross for your substitution
So in conclusion, only one solution
Trust divine intervention as your resolution

Hook:
Here is my moment, here is my lifetime
All that I have I will give to You
In this moment, 'cause nothing really matters at all
Everything that this heart longs for other than You I will let die
Take all that I am 'cause nothing really matters right now
This is my moment

Searching for truth in a world of lies?

No! God will continue to be true even when every person is false. Romans 3:4a

Before the Throne

Before the Throne By: Shane and Shane

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong, a perfect plea:
A great High Priest, whose name is Love,
Who ever lives and pleads for me.

My name is graven on his hands,
My name is written on his heart;
I know that while in heaven he stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

When Satan tempts me to despair,
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look, and see him there
Who made an end of all my sin.

Because a sinless Savior died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God, the Just, is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Praise the One,
Risen Son of God!

Behold him there, the risen Lamb
My perfect, spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I AM,
The King of glory and of grace!

One in himself, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by his blood
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ, my Savior and my God
With Christ, my Savior and my God
_______________________________

I love this song! It is so powerful and tells just how much we should depend on Christ and that we aren't a thing unless we are in Him and He in us. Satan may try to distract me and keep me from doing my mission of sharing Christ's love... But HE WILL NEVER get the victory!!! Becuase victory is Christ! He has paid it all. He has lifted burdens and squashed sin! He fills me with love, joy, strength, courage, and His power. He fills me where I overflow onto others! I won't give Satan a foothole. He will try and get me down. He will try and keep from Christ. But I have a secret... I am hidden in Christ! He won't be able to find my heart in this body because it is in Christ! I am not my own!!!! The word Christian literally means little Christ. We better start acting like we carry His name... We better start changed our perspectives.. We better start dying to self! Because He is just waiting for us to hand it all over. We can't do it. It has to be through Him. Will you die?

Hidden in Christ,
Grace
