Love? [23 Sep 2006|04:51pm]

cbertoia
Love battles selfish desire
Slams headlong into greed
Lust has won many battles
Love wins the war
---------------------------

Love lets go
Love crushes the hearts of the broken
To forge anew the hearts of the lost
Love opens the eyes of the wizened
---------------------------

The mind forgets, is impatient with pain, and feeds on lies for comfort
Love always remembers, remains, delays for the perfect moment
---------------------------

Love humbles
Love wins the war
---------------------------

All I knew is that I loved
Loved strong enough to break a heart

I spent a lifetime second guessing
But love fought hard
It stunted my voice and stopped my legs
It made me pray

All I knew is that I loved
And love let my tears fall free

All I know is that I love
Love strong enough to mend a heart

I could spend a lifetime second guessing
But love provides generously
It gives me...
the humbleness to speak
the courage to listen
the understanding to forgive
the grace to be forgiven
---------------------------

Love brings me to the brink, forcing patience, awe, joy, peace, and healthy insanity.

Love is wise
God is wise

Love. [23 Sep 2006|10:56am]

astraea17
thought that I knew love-- and, in a sense, I did. I knew love and I knew the depth to which that love could run.... "my love runs deep".... but I never knew this kind of love or understood the peace that this love can bring- until now- until I closed my eyes and asked God to show me- until I opened my hands and my heart and gave all that there was to give- until I realized that my plans really held very little ground... and that God's plans would bring me to the very spot where I'd find Him, and His will, and this Love.

Time is an amazing thing and God is an amazing time keeper. I marvel at the distance and the broken roads between where I stand now and where I stood a year ago. I thank God for His patience and His forgiveness and His peace spoken over my life. I'm so grateful for everyone that I've encountered and everything that I've lived through. I've touched people. I've been touched. I've burned people. I've been burned. I've lost myself and I turned to the voice and the arms that continued to call me back home. I'm blessed to be standing where I am- looking back at who I was- and seeing so much more, for me, for His glory. It's truly amazing.

A year ago-- abouts-- when my life seemed mostly not worth living-- I prayed a prayer of the broken hearted, the hopeless, the lost. I prayed a prayer that, to this day, brings tears to my eyes and a lump to my throat. I prayed in desperation. I prayed in fear. Regardless, I prayed in faith. I prayed with faith.
Daniel 8:26... That verse was writting in bold. I saw it as clearly as I'm seeing the words I write now. Taken in context, I suppose that it's not an "encouraging" verse... but... in regards to the prayer I offered up and into God's hands... it was exactly the answer that I needed. I like this version of the verse, it's from the New Life Bible....
"The special dream of the evenings and mornings that has been given to you is true. But keep the dream secret, for it has to do with things far into the future."
*soft smile* God is good.

I'm sitting here with such a song in my heart. I pray that God gives me the words. My heart, at this moment, is singing it's.... heart(?) Hah!..... out. Yes. Warm fuzzies don't even begin to explain the warmth- the peace- the belief- the faith- the secure surrender- aaaaaaaahh!!! The love. I can't stop smiling. My heart is so light. I don't think that these butterflies will ever cease... and I'm ok with that. I'm starting to fall in love when them too.. hah! ((wanna hear a secret?! I hope that they DON'T ever cease... and I hope that this giddy excitement never fades)) I'm so expectant every time. The distance is so good.. even if I don't see it each night that I drive back home. It's amazing to be building like this. It's amazing to feel as I do. It's amazing and I'm so excited for the day.................... *gentle sigh* just...... THE day......

I'm happy. I was so scared. I was so hesitant. However, as I began to reveal my heart again- exposing it ever so slowly and ever so carefully- I realized that things are so different and that God's hand stretches to even the most 'intimidating' of places... Now, my smile won't falter and my feelings won't be admitted with hesitation. I've found peace... or, rather, peace has found me.

I thoroughly enjoy you. Precious. :)

.. random God thoughts... [17 Jan 2006|04:23am]

astraea17
[ mood | *thoughtful*tired*awake* ]

As an initial thought.. I changed the page.. please check it out and let me know what you think........ it's nothing major. It's actually very simple. I really like it, however..

Ok, so.........


People constantly ask me what it's like to be a teen mom-- young mother-- single with a baby-- and I always tell them how blessed I am and how Andrew, my son, has created a whole new goal for life. I tell them how God blessed me with him knowing that I would face times when I could lose myself and I would turn to my motherhood as a means of grounding. I always credit God for bestowing upon me the greatest gift--- another human life. *smile* I think of that as the greatest gift, referring to Jesus, but as a mother I have begun to gain this whole new perspective.. it's pretty amazing.

Not until tonight did I begin to consider something different. I, on the way home from picking him up from Julie's, had this sudden urge to call my Grandma, Aunt, and cousins in Florida. I called and played musical phone call; I talked to each one of them about life and where they were going, how they've been etc.. My grandma loves to talk, always has, and kept me on the phone triple the time that anyone else did. She asked about work, school, relationship past and present, Andrew, friends and I spilled to her the summary of the past few months. At one point we got on the topic of Andrew and I began to tell her about my view-- how he was a blessing to teach me strength at the most trying times and she suddenly threw a "no" at me. She began to tell it like this:
"I believe that the devil placed hardships in you life as a means to drag you down. I believe that your pregnancy was one of those hardships. I believe that, because of God, and through God, you began to see the beauty in it. I believe that God, in response to the situation in which you found yourself, decided that He wouldn't let you fall and he would bring out the blessing of a baby..."
.. or something along those lines. That's a hard concept..... I'm not quite sure what I think about that besides the fact that, in the end, God is the hero and all things are as they should be....

Andrew is a blessing in my life, regardless. If I never again have a baby [miscarriages are common in my family.. my mom has had 7] I will live with a heart full of love for my short man. *smile* He has taught me more about God, and having a real relationship with God, than I believe any "man of God" ever could. You won't understand until you have a child... and when you do, I pray that we have this talk... over and over again. God speaks wonders to a parents' heart..........



Good night. I love you--- more than you probably fathom. God Bless.

"Pitiful"-- Blindside [17 Jan 2006|02:14am]

astraea17
[ mood | *in tears* ]

As I recall with my stomach turning
I was hiding away from myself, away from you
Like nothing, though something was terribly wrong
And I admit that I was only waiting for the right time
Night time, the right moment for you to look away
Though you never did, I pretended for a while
So I could walk where I don't belong

And I remember every word you said
Come back in time, come back
And I remember I would soon be dead
Now so pitiful, so pitiful

But I know as I hammered those nails into your beautiful hands
Your eyes still try to search for mine, but I look away
Now your eyes are the only thing that can save me
I'm still afraid of them piercing
You're breaking into my prison
Just pretended for a while
My soul is dying
I won't look away

And I remember every word you said...

I'll remember every word you said
This time I won't look away





Those-- my friends-- are amazing lyrics-- and totally my heart right now. God Bless.

**EDIT: I am going to keep this post up, but I've decided that my ramblings about things like this are very disconnected and I'm not sure if they contain anything valuable... or even embody my full thought on the subject. I don't mean to be judgemental and I made assumptions. Oh well... just a heads up.**

I just got done listening to part of a debate between Bob Dutko and
Reginald (didn't get his last name).
It was the classic debate of who is right, Christians or Atheists.
Is there a God?
How do you explain the Universe?

I'm not going to say much about the actual debate yet... I just want to
say that people need to learn to communicate before they try to prove
their stance over anyone elses.
I've been guilty of this before, but it's just ridiculous when someone
is talking, to assume you know what they are saying 3 words into a
sentence just because you don't like those first 3 words. I've been
working on this really hard, but if you're going to go and debate on a
radio show with thousands of listeners not to mention the ones who will
download it later on www.infidelguy.com (That's Reginald's site) you
should be able to listen and converse in an orderly manner. When you
don't, you sound desperate, immature, and unsound in what you're
defending.

The whole thing was maneuvered well by Bob. At least the portion I
heard. Reginald immediately when and slashed at Christians everywhere
saying that often times, to Christians, atheists seem to be the worst
kind of people, and seem to be in league with Satan. Bob was quick to
make his view (which is also mine) known. That there are only two types
of people: Saved and Unsaved. No one is valued higher than the other. In
that manner, it doesn't matter whether you are a saved Christian,
someone who calls themselves Christian for convenience, an atheist, a
Buddhist, a muslim, a witch, a new age believer, or anything else for
that matter. God loves us all equally, just there are those that see
this fact and accept it, and those who don't.

All this man seemed to lack was a faith in God (which makes sense
because he believes there is no God or other supernatural being(s)). He
said that he can't wrap his mind around a beginning, because you can't
make something from nothing. Therefore everything this is just was.
Always. Makes sense, because as far as this man is concerned, there
isn't enough tangible proof that God exists. If there was it would
probably make more sense to him, once he believed in God, that God could
create the Universe.

He said that you can't talk about God and have it be scientific. His
reasoning was because by adding God into a scientific theory or
equation, you add something that is not provable or able to be
explained. "You can't solve mysteries with more mysteries" he said.
I have nothing to say about that except that very
statement seems to be the exact opposite of what I've found Christianity
to be. Solving mysteries with more mysteries; diving deeper and deeper
into in infinite God's infinite Words.
Anyways, Bob brought up the idea of expanding past "Natural" science,
and thereby exploring the idea of a being that created the Universe,
able to create something from nothing because he could manipulate the
first law of thermodynamics (that law says that Matter and Energy cannot
be created or destroyed, it only changes form), and that this being
could do such things because if he created the universe, he in turn
created this law and had dominion over it.

It took Bob 10 minutes to get that out... only because Reginald
interrupted every five seconds with the fact that there's no proof that
God exists so therefore this argument is not scientific. Once Bob did
finally get this out and offer it as a possible THEORY to Reginald, he
basically skirted around even considering the possibility.

They call Christians closed-minded and conservative.

Reginald, in my opinion, couldn't even consider that theory because he
tried to look at it through the veil of Human Natural Law. I admit that
I can't blame him because it's all he knows... but why not see that you
can't know all there is to know? But I guess that if he could see that
he wouldn't be an atheist.

I suppose it's kind of frustrating to hear people like that call us
closed-minded. They do that because Christians in general are
restrictive on things that we know aren't Holy, that don't please God,
that we don't accept a grey area when it comes to Jesus. We are this way
not because we are afraid of "progress," or "cultural change," we are
this way because we know where certain things that are labeled as such
(allowing Gay/Lesbian marriages within the church, giving children so
much privacy that we are no longer able to teach them, allowing lust
etc. in media to enter our minds and the minds of those we look after
and care about) lead to. They lead away from God. We are OPEN to what
these things are and in light of that wisdom (imparted by God through
word, bible, experience etc) make the same choices on the right path.

True closed mindedness is not our burden.

(Now don't get me wrong... God hasn't given any of us all knowledge, and
there still are many Christians, including myself I'm sure, who are
closed minded on topics... but the key point I'm trying to get across is
that the very nature of Christianity is that no man can know so much
that they are able to close their minds to all input. Why not TRULY
listen to all sides and make the best decision possible?)

Come, let us return to the LORD. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence. Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.

[ mood | **shining** ]

The Word is always welcome, yes?


The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them. My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will release my feet from the snare. Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish. Look upon my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins. See how my enemies have increased and how fiercely they hate me! Guard my life and rescue me; let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope is in you.
Psalms 25:14-21

Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father's glory with the holy angels."
Mark 8:34-38


Isn't that awesome? *grin* I just read that this morning and it really makes me smile. I'm sitting here completely broken and in awe.. it's the little reminders that keep me soaring. Thank you, Jesus.

God is good.

That's all I've got.

If anyone cares... [03 Oct 2005|12:04am]

I don't know what's going on but today has been very weird. I had my own personal episode with Satan this morning during church..those are never fun. And tonight when I got home.. well if any of you read my other journal.. my dad was in the shower and then I heard him leave to go to the office. He only does that when he's mad. So I don't know what's going on. It's just been an all around weird day and it's not pretty. I don't know what's going on with my dad or mom or whatever. So if anyone cares, some prayer would be very much appreciated for the next day or so.
Thanks.

I'm so confused. I'm glad tomorrow's Sunday. [24 Sep 2005|10:00pm]

[ mood | searching for answers ]

I'm afraid God might be giving me something I never thought I'd want. I seem to be fighting it. Now I don't know for sure. I have no proof until I actually talk to some people, but it's scaring me. I hope it's just all in my head. I am a girl, those things can happen. Or should I say DO happen.
It's really something that I don't even think I should be concentrating on. I haven't done any homework all week, and that's just not like me.

I'm going to read. Right now. Yes. And look for some guidance and direction from God.

-----

It's now 11:30 and I love God! Haha. Just talking to Him makes me feel better. It's like talking to a psychologist, you pretty much talk your way through your own problems, they are just there to listen. Ok, well not exactly, but anyway. I still have issues, but it feels so good to give them to God. He uses some people in miraculous ways. Like my new book, by Rob Bell. I can only read small sections at a time because he communicates in a way that I totally understand and I just can't not write about it or pray about what I learn. I love it.

Wow, I just thought of a song I haven't heard in so stinkin' long!

"Use me here, where I am,
I'm not going to pray anymore
That you'll change your plans.
Despite my fear I place my life in Your hands,
The future can wait, tomorrow might be too late
Jesus use me here."

I feel like I'm redundant every time I post now. But God really is great. How can I not be aware of that sometimes? How do I lose sight of it so easily?

Ok, bed time. :-)

Frogs, and the smell of rain [23 Sep 2005|12:46am]

pinky2shus
[ mood | contemplative ]

Here's how I felt about the rain today...*ahem*

Rain rain,
Don't go away.

I love you,
Please stay,
But only for today. :-)

I'm so sleepy right now. But I would rather update now about tonight, than in the morning.
I went to my Bible study tonight that I haven't been to in a while. It was good. I learned of examples in the Bible that seem to fit my life perfectly right now.
We did a character study (or started) of Abraham. It took 24 years before God began the great nation. So essentially, it took 24 years for God's plan to take effect. Wow.. that's a long wait. So naturally that brought up patience. Oh how I'm not liking that word lately. Not the meaning of it, I know I need it. But I would like it to be a different word. I just know I need to wait on God's timing.
Another thing.. this goes along with what Rachel asked not too long ago, but God works through the mistakes we make and uses them for the better in the end. Everything will still work out the way He's planned it to.
We need to let God work. We have control issues and want to take matters into our own hands.
Also a neat tidbit of information, is that God used people who were not special. He didn't say to a King, I will make you a great nation. He said it to Abram. He wasn't a king, or wealthy, or of any nobility. He was just like us.
So yeah. That's all from Genesis chapters 12-17.. that we BRIEFLY looked at tonight. Good stuff.

I'm excited for experiencing different ways of worship. I want to check out this M-68 thing Carlo mentioned. So...if you couldn't tell already.. I want more details CARLO! I really feel like this is a point where I need to discover who I am in God. I've been "luke warm" for so long now. It's time for change. I don't know where I'm being led to, I just know that God's got something new in store for me soon.

How great is He!!?!! [20 Sep 2005|10:24pm]

pinky2shus
[ mood | I don't understand ]

Tonight driving home from class I was watching the moonrise. I'm surprised I didn't get into an accident. But along with watching such a great thing, I was listening to Hillsong. As soon as I got home I went for a walk. I live by a lake, so just down the road there is a little bridge. Walking down there I was so excited. I couldn't get there fast enough. I stood there for a while praying. It was so nice. Watching the moon glazing over the calm lake, but then still hearing the rushing waters of the fall.
I still have lots of work to do on what I prayed for, but at least I'm starting to get back on track. I really don't feel like I got too far off the path in the first place, but God will probably show me otherwise. A big thing I prayed for tonight was His help in my obedience. When He says move, I should move. When He says stop, I'll stop. I just need to listen and pay attention. But paying attention can be so difficult when there is so much going on.
The praying was good tonight. But I still feel like I need to clear my head and heart. I need to get a lot off of my chest to Him. And He knows all that's going through my head right now. So Lord, please take my thoughts and do with them what You will. Lead them in the direction of the right path. Let me break down before You because I can't do this alone. This life, I don't know how people think they can. I need to be with You.
THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR TIMING! :-)

I've listened to "God of Creation" so many times the past couple days. It just came on and tonight it's hitting home. It paints a picture of what I saw at the lake tonight.

"It's the way your stars shine
Sometimes so bright I swear I could hear
It's the way the moonlight
Falls on this mountain lake so clear...

...God of creation
Take my breath away
God of the heavens
In this very space...

...It's the way You form Your words
On my heart while I rest in You
CARRY ME AWAY!..."

Show me where to go. What to do. You know all. I get so confused. But so excited. I just don't know what to do sometimes. Let me discern what is right, and what You will have me do from what I want to do.
I feel like I'm going two different directions at once. In some areas I'm making progress, but still I feel like nothing is going the right way... in those same areas. It just gets so frustrating. And to talk to someone here on earth about it, they just don't seem to understand. At least not ones that I know. Lord, You do understand. So why do I feel like I'm waiting for so long? Patience is soo hard to deal with sometimes. Why can't I just be like everyone else? Please oh please Lord, since You have me going through this, let me be of use for You in some way because of it. I really don't have an understanding of how that would happen, but I do pray for it.
"My love for You, My heart for You, My life for You, All I AM for You."
~Amen

Drowning [19 Sep 2005|07:15am]

omnius
Something that God gave me:

Problems, everyone has them. I know it is hard for me to say this, because when I do, I have to live it. When we have problems, we seek out people who are experiencing the same things we are because they "know what it's like." There is one problem with that though...
How can one drowning person save another?
If he tries to help he can't do anything but cause both of them to sink faster.

When you have a problem, you need someone in a safe, secure boat to extend thier hand and pull you on board. That's when you are assured to be brought to safety.
Whether the person has never experienced your problem or they have an they've delt with it, they are the people in the boat. They are the ones who can help.

I know for me, it's hard to seek help from people who don't experience the same thing because of pride. Ultimately though, humbling yourself (as most everyone knows...) is one of the best things you can do. Admitting to others as well as the LORD, that this is indeed an issue.

Please, when you need help, don't ask for it from someone drowning with you, look to the people extending thier hands from the safe place.

Knowledge of Heart, not Mind [19 Sep 2005|07:10am]

omnius
Everyone always talks about how You died for our sins and rose again.

It's something I've come to hear everyday.
I'm sorry to say it Lord but it's something that becomes trivialized. It becomes a "matter of fact," instead of a "matter of heart" or a "matter of reverence and ultimate respect" or a "matter of tears." I'm not saying that we are all wrong for letting it just become another fact of our christianity, but Lord... to even get an idea. I don't ever want to forget.

It's sad, but if you don't know, how can you love the way you were meant to love?

It's so easy to say Thank You Lord, Thank You Lamb. or at least it used to be...
I found myself choking up as I sang those words this morning, and that is something I never want to forget.

I also can't help but laugh now Lord. It gives me such awesome joy to know a fraction of what you've done for Your favorite son.

I'll love You, forever. I'll love You, forever.
There is nothing like Your Love.

It's simple.. not poetic.. Simple. Pure. TRUTH. [14 Sep 2005|04:18am]

[ mood | **in love** ]

In the event of struggle: Turn around. He's right behind you.
In the event of broken heart: Turn around. He's right behind you.
In the event of twilight tears: Turn around. He's right behind you.

There seems to be a common theme here.

I know that it's something we all know.. but it never hurts to be reminded, and drilled, and prodded, and poked, and reminded again, just how wonderful, merciful, and compassionate the Lord is. A constant drone of GOD IS GREAT!!! can't ever hurt-- it heals. The little voice that raises above all others...

It's calling to you...

Always........

In the dry place, He's there. In times of flood, He's there. His waters can heal and destroy all. You, child, He chooses to heal, and embrace, and lift up. He has you wrapped so tightly within Himself and His heart. He longs for you deeper. He longs for you closer. He longs for you to embrace Him and He embraces you. He's crying with you, broken hearted lover. He's singing with you, child of praise. He's holding your hand as you write the papers, take the tests, lose the daylight in your books. He's there as you run, love. He's the drive behind each footstep. He holds you at night as you cry when you think no one is listening. He laughs at the jokes no one seems to get. He scolds you gently when you stray from His path. He smiles as you revel in His awesome mystery. He is your best friend, your parent, your child, your deepest love. He taught us how to love. He taught us how to hurt. He dwells in the core of who you are. He is your heart. He's sending His message of love to your mind CONSTANTLY. Listen. He wants everything for you. He is everything. Realization of that, it vital. Glorify Him. In all that you are and all that you do and all that you speak.. speak His word. Sing of His promises. Be. Be with your Daddy tonight, will you? Just, be.

I really haven't been praying to God for anything lately. I used to be so good at sitting down each day and reading and learning and pouring out my heart. I haven't done that at all. It's like there is so much in my life that I have pushed Him to the back of my mind because I have to get other things done. Although I'm sure if I were relying on Him for everything, that I might have some free time here and there to relax and spend with people, instead of my mind being on what I should be doing when I am out with friends.

*few minutes later (I dug out some notes)*

It's like the upsilon vector my pastor talked about a couple of months ago. Although I don't feel like I'm at the bottom of the ride yet, so I don't know what's to come. I just feel in a "blah" state. If any of that makes sense. Looking at these notes I took that day, there are so many little points that make so much sense. It's so true that when we are at the bottom, and we feel the worst, is when we grow and learn the most. And yes we are joyful in the times that we are at the top, but we typically don't grow then. So we should also be joyful when we are not. So from the bottom up should be great. But from the top down, what are you supposed to do? When you know you are heading down, how do you prepare for it? And what if it's just a pothole, and not the magnum? Like I said, I just feel blah. Not too cheery lately.

And back to studying for a psychology test tomorrow. Oh how fitting.

"The days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will fulfill the gracious promise I made to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. In those days and at that time I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David's line; he will do what is just and right in the land. In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety. This is the name by which it will be called: The LORD Our Righteousness."
Jeremiah 33:14-16
