New Song- “In Between Days”

I recently wrote a song:

In between days
We fall into blackness
Going different ways
Soaked in all the sadness
Within all the grey
We wait in the madness
We are the broken pieces
Broken hearts
Left to protect ourselves
Or be lost in the dark

But Lord, you embrace us all
Cushion our fall
My family loved me
But still I died yesterday
And in this fast world
All the friends I’ve made
Said I’d always belong
Surrounded by everything
But inside, I felt alone
And these bullets of cold words and disconnection
Always seemed to graze
My heart, where no one noticed how it stopped
In between days

I’d lie down for hours
Just to cry
Only God noticed
I was so empty inside
They claimed I’d be happy
By having things
The more stuff I had
The more I felt empty
It’s about a heart feeling
When no one noticed
I trusted God instead
Because He sees

And these bullets of cold words and disconnection
Always seemed to graze
My heart, where no one noticed how it stopped
In between days
In between days

Listen! Not perfect, but I finally recorded it. Yay! Tell me what you think:

In Between Days

This song is about how before I met Christ and trusted him, I used to be in this world, surrounded by stuff, but always feeling empty. In between the days, no one noticed how I was so broken up inside.

Purity Ring, Song- “Reaching Towards the Sky”

So. I’ve been wearing my purity ring for awhile now. Since June 26, 2010. I’ve decided to reward myself for every 3 months that I wear it. It’s been 1 month. Woohoo! It’s hard to think that I can do it sometimes, but after a few weeks of wearing it, I felt actually perfect in my heart. Like I deserve to wait, because I deserve the reward of having a special bond with my husband that most people won’t ever have- he’ll take my virginity.

Even if I mess up a few times before I’m married, it will only be a few times and the bond will still feel special, instead of other people who will have done it dozens and dozens of times before they get married. It takes away a specialness from it. I feel like doing this is perfect. Every girl should save herself for marriage, regardless of is she wears a ring or not.

The perfect guy is the one who is willing to wait. He won’t rush you or pressure you or say “show me you love me by having sex with me”. That’s a load of crap. The perfect guy will think you are well worth the wait, even if it’s a long time. Jesus wants everyone to wait ’til marriage, because it’s so much more special that way. 😀

Anyhoo, I write music.
My song “Reaching Towards the Sky” I wrote for Jesus, on keyboard.

I can’t put together
A million pieces to the puzzle
Of my heart
Up in the sky, there lies my star
Losing light, fading to dark
Fading into blackness
It’s hopeless,
The things of this world
Aren’t enough
To keep me alive
Give my star back it’s shine

Reaching towards the sky, reaching for your hand
Sometimes it’s worth just taking the chance
Heart racing, pumping my blood
Seeping through my veins is all of your love

In the midst of all the dark
You whisper to my heart
That after all the pain drains away
Your truth remains everyday
To give me strength, to make me calm
To lift me up whenever I fall
The love in your heart keeps me warm
Whenever I’m lost in the storm
When this life breaks me into pieces
One by one, you put me back together
Now I am yours to keep
Forever, Jesus

Reaching towards the sky, reaching for your hand
Sometimes it’s worth just taking the chance
Heart racing, pumping my blood
Seeping through my veins is all of your love

I feel me walking on broken glass
When I’m overwhelmed by trouble in this life
I won’t stop even when I’m bleeding
Because you heal me inside
I heard the atheist say
My fairy tale God wasn’t real
But until I met God one day
I’ve never been able to feel
This alive
I won’t apologize
For loving the one who has always loved me most
My star shines again, my pulse throbs with his hope

Reaching towards the sky, reaching for your hand
Sometimes it’s worth just taking the chance
Heart racing, pumping my blood
Seeping through my veins is all of your love

“Our God is Love”

God loves everyone and everything. Today in church Lee McDerment was talking about how God is so powerful that with such little effort he created the oceans that could so easily destroy us. The massive universe that is beyond what we can understand is in the palm of his hand and God also made the mountains.. He also said that God didn’t send Jesus to save anything in the massive ocean but to save us humans… every tiny person.

I’d like to add that that is some freaking amazing love. God created everything that is above and beyond us but he cares most dearly about us. It makes me want to cry tears of joy. Wow, how I’ve never been loved like that by anyone before… God sent his only son, Jesus, to save us, and not anything more massive than us or anything smaller than us… just mankind. I’m so proud to have a father who does not get caught up in things of the world but instead gets caught up in the condition of the hearts of people in this world. God is joy. God is happiness. God is love.
Check out the piano version of Lee McDerment’s song Our God is Love.
Do you like it? Then comment, lol! These are the lyrics:
————–

raise your hands and make a joyful noise
our God is love our God is love
He sets the captives free and offers grace
our God is love our God is love
open up our hearts so we can show the world
what You have done for us
and how You’ve changed our lives
You are bigger than we’ve let You be
You are strong enough to set us free
by the pain of the cross You bring life to the lost
You are love You are love
our God is love
He runs to those who call upon his name
our God is love our God is love
He sets the captives free and offers grace
our God is love our God is love
our God so gracious
our God abounding in love
our God so gracious
our God ever faithful
’tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
just to take Him at his word
just to rest upon His promise
just to know “thus saith the Lord”
Jesus Jesus how I trust Him
how I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus Jesus precious Jesus
o for grace to trust Him more

How unbelievably beautiful and unbelievably real. These lyrics are superb. Haha, wow, this is really good stuff. And absolute truth. Hope it rocks your world today. Trust in Jesus’s truth, his word. He’s the most amazing promise you could dream of having, dream of knowing. Accept him. Only faith in Jesus Christ can provide salvation.

If you would like to accept him today, first recognize that you are a sinner and that you deserve punishment. Recognize that Jesus Christ took that punishment upon himself and that he has forgiveness for your sins. Pray to Jesus for forgiveness of your sins and offer your life to him. Thank God for his grace and forgiveness.

Romans 10:9 says:
That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Remember: A prayer does not save you, but only faith in Jesus can.
Prayed this prayer? Leave a comment saying so. Any questions? Leave a comment with the question. Any thoughts? You know what to do. 🙂 Go and get a bible and begin to study it and surround yourself with uplifting Christians. Good luck on your brand new journey! If you did not pray this prayer, I pray that God knocks on the door of your heart so that you may let him in. If you are truly already saved, I pray God leads you to lead others to Christ. He is worthy.

God bless you all.
