Questions asked. --Answers! God Bless!

If you knew that in one year you would die suddenly, would you change anything about the way you are now living? If so, what?

- - The truth is, No one knows when their going "Home".. So I think the question more so is, How can you change today and the way your living to be in position for Gods Blessings. I feel when we think about A year from now.. Were just stepping out of reality, and The beautiful Today that we have to be thankful for. One day at a time, Just be thankful and full of joy. Have faith in yourself, and all you do, Trust God, and Don't fear what you should have done, or question your time here on earth! :)

If you had one day in your life to live over, which would you choose and why?

I wouldn't change a day ever, If I hadn't experienced the road I went down, I wouldn't be who I am today, It's really awesome to know God directs your steps even when your not walking with him, He knows how to pull you in the direction of his Love, and He did.. I am happy and thankful I went through what I did. I am standing a better woman of God today, and I strive to be an example to other young girls, and show them their is Hope, and a different kinda love. We don't have to worry about what we've done, cause we are restored in Christ and He makes us whole again. :) - - Thank You Jesus!!

What do you think is the single best decision you've made in your life so far?

Giving my heart to Jesus. And Turning my life around so That I can be all that I am suppose to be in his will for my life. :)

Name one thing you could do to improve any important relationship in your life.

As unbelievable as it seems some days, his image is being shaped into the mud of our souls. Thats where out fears are dug in deep. And we work hard to keep everyone, especially ourselves, fooled into thinking were okay. God isn't fooled. Thats the spiritual basis for the strenuous task of containing a conflict so that it can become the deep spade work of God in your own soul. Unraveling conflict will help you face your fears. It exposes lies we hide behind. Sometimes it even forces us to admit how distorted our image of God actually is. In his way, and often unknowingly, we are used by God in each other's life to air out the scared places in our hearts we never knew were there -- Until they hurt. Practically speaking, the goal is to be able to talk about an important matter of the relationship and this could take a course of time, But Thats why God is the key in any relationship... And God is the only foundation anyone could use to improve ANY important relationship in life.

If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?

-- I would change one thing, and that would have been to be closer to all my family, and get to know the family I've never met, or got the chance to. But God does this so we can be thankful for what we have and cherish that the most. I believe that One day I will have a beautiful family, and everything I desire it to be. God is faithful, and I know he hears me when I pray for this. And Im so excited for it!

What was the high point of last month?

Friendships, and Really realizing what I want in this life. And Giving up the fear, to make the best choices, and walk with a clear conscience towards all that I am suppose to be.

What is the one thing about yourself you like best?

I am a good listener. I think being able to listen and understand, We are better able to love what we understand. And loving others, and being loved is the main way we reflect the glory of God. :)

What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about?

The knowledge and understanding of God. - -

"The weapons we use in our fight are not made by humans. Rather, they are powerful weapons from God. With them we destroy people's defenses, that is, their arguments and all their intellectual arrogance that oppose the knowledge of God. We take every thought captive so that it is obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5"

What do you value most in a relationship?

The goal is not to heal the other person, because, truly, that is a work only God can do as the saving power of Christ invades the dark, hidden places of our hearts. But in close relationships, I think its important"we live to see the redemption take place". Mostly we're along for the ride. Occasionally, when we are least aware, God actually uses us in the process.

Being a woman who understands a man, perhaps better than he understands himself -- It allows us to see beyond his fears and defeats. But only God can really meet him. Its a gift though when you can see there's a man in there, in spite of everything. Its a gift, even though you know that, ultimately, he has to claim that reality for himself. -

Time is Divine -JM

The dice was loaded from the start..
And I bet that you stole his heart
But When you gonna realize its just not time?
and heres where it begins... Don't question why..

He says,
Your Beautiful
Your ready for greatness
All edited and weightless
Never more alive
I can see it in your eyes
And oh dear,
How they'll whisper your name
but who cares about fame?
Who cares what they think?
who are you, and what do you claim?
Let down the walls,
Don't live in the enemy's game
embrace who you are..
He will show you the way.

And every day is a start of something beautiful
One day our love will count for everything..
Until then,
You're a little bit right
More than a little bit right
Watch the last wall collapse
O' How God can make this happen so fast..
Slow down for a minute, Wait
I need to communicate
I know..
It's just you and me
And we break wide
I wake reminded "love"
I wont give up..
But will you hold on?..
Maybe I'm crazy
Maybe it's because..
I just can't get through to what you want.
It's hard to stay still and hold you,
To not break loose and run the taste of you,
I'm aching to believe
Could this really be?
I'm weak when you miss me
When you roll my name on your tongue..
When you whisper me your best moves
I not only trust
I believe you..
I believe in us,
But you don't know me at all
And I don't know you at all.
Im ready to break down that wall,
I want to, And I want to fall..
This time, I'll have no fear
I'll be standing strong and tall my dear
Turn my back towards the enemy cause he's wrong
And if the world decides to catch up with me someday,
Someday.. They can sing along..
I'll spit these thoughts out..
Ill scream out loud
Before they stained me
I lived a lifetime inside of my own shelter,
and a voice told me its time to see outside
But I believed it wasn't easy,
stupidly thought I couldn't just get up and walk away
I had illness hugging me like skin
But the voice was persistent, He wanted me to live
and so I shed it clean until I could taste the oxygen.
I'm ready to embrace this, I'm ready for repair
I had so many layers left by amateur painters who covered over what was there
I stuffed myself sick on the memories and the beautiful messes I made
and I was tired of being inspired only when things slipped away.
Im not listening to the words they say.
They told me time would strip me dry full of lies
They told me time would strip it all and that I'm no better than when I left there the first time
I wont replay "They" I wont cry.
I'm ready to erase this, I'm ready to begin, Im ready to fly
Ive Spent myself trying to change all the beauty that was destroyed within
Then I stopped, and listened in
I am beautiful, I got the whole world in my hands
I am who I am, I walk with him.
And so I prayed one day soon, Love would begin
Just one look, A certain kinda peace
Breathing Out, Feeling a new kind of release..
And then you held me in your arms..
and I felt pretty again
And all that I can see
Is my future in your hands
And all that I can feel
Is how long ever after is
It's all that I can do
Im holding out for exactly what he wants..
Ive had my taste, and Yes I want more
But we run God's pace
And His plans are the steps Im looking for..
and yes Id like to get to know you more..
Im not looking for a race
My spirits jumping, Im stripped to the core
He whispered a melody,
and said, Its just not time
For when Its right Ill shine my light...
You'll be walking in white and looking divine.
Before his eyes
... Ill give him a glimpse of his wife ..

God will confirm the time.
and I remind myself... Just walk in line..
Walk by faith and not by sight.

-JM <3

Plenty Of Time

A thousand years mean nothing to you! They are merely a day gone by or a few hours in the night. Psalm 90:4

Time is both an enemy and a friend. You do your best to conquer it, and yet it continually slips through your fingers. You measure your life, your successes, and your productivity in terms of minutes, hours, days, and weeks. You often lose your hope in the future and in the fulfillment of your dreams as time passes. God isn't subject to your concept of time, for he is the Master of the universe. When you place your trust in him, you can know with certainty that you have all the time you need to do what he has created you to do and that you have plenty of time to become all that he created you to be. Your brightest hour is always ahead, never behind! =]

Lord, I trust in you. I have said "You are my God". My life is in your hands. Psalm 31:14-15

Prayer - -

Heavenly Father, I place my seconds, minutes, hours, and days in your hands. I thank you for restoring my hope in the future. Amen

Only Four Days In. -- JM

Im Only Four Days In...

I'm only four days in. you ask me how I've been?
Well let me fill you in.
Times a blur
One things for certain
His word holds firm for sure.
Pull back the curtain
My spirit, body and soul,
searching for a cure
Its name is Pure.
I listen,
Inside I'm crying out,
Am I weak?, It's getting deep..
My eyes are dazed
I'm in a confusing maze
Trying to find a way through these hazy days
On that note, I enter my hardest days
I have his attention, yet His enemies are here
Scrambling to find a way and cast me fear
A way to put in their to cents but I'm protected here
Let me repeat, I'm guarded by the Father's fence
The enemy is near and my mouth shall vent
My spirits getting stronger,
My spirit is awakened
Its not much longer, No it's not much longer
4 days, 2 weeks on this quest, its all worth the wait
Don't expect nothing less..
Waiting on his voice, The moment he speaks
Open wide, Let me hear the angels choir sing
Give me a glimpse backstage, enlighten my day
Even if its brief to these mystical things
Ill feel a release, Keep to my feet
even if it takes one more week
Hes in control, This I believe
I'm alive
1990 October 16th,
It is written
Don't drown it out
Rejoice and shout
An overcomer by the word of my testimony,
I take a big leap, spread my wings
Its time for take off, I've Got to fly
Direct my path O mighty Lord, Open my eyes
Lord speak to me, Ive got to see
A glimpse backstage ain't enough for me,
1 ticket to the show please?
I walk in faith, Its clear that I'm free
I know its fate, I must say
I don't want to be late, Got to find my way
Gotta get my key
And soar through Heaven's Gate.
