Aloha - Music Im feeling: Martina McBride

TERC is tomorrow...
It is quite lively. Sometimes the girls and guys spar on relationship issues but it's all done in love and you come away with a new understanding. For the first time I'll be able to stay on for the whole entire session... so join me!

I love this song. Heard it on the radio last sunday. A friend just started chatting with me and asked me about the song today. This is EXACTLY what I needed to hear. God Bless you P!

as you can tell i took the autoplay option off... it actually annoys me... i dont know why i do it. lol.
These are the words if you're interested

You can spend your whole life building,
Something from nothing
One storm can come and blow it all away,
Build it anyway
You can chase a dream
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway

God is great, but sometimes life ain't good
And when I pray
It doesn't always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway,
I do it anyway

This world's gone crazy
And it's hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway
You can love someone with all your heart,
For all the right reasons,
And in a moment they can choose to walk away
Love 'em anyway

(Repeat Chorus)

God is great, but sometimes life ain't good
And when I pray
It doesn't always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway,
I do it anyway

You can pour your soul out singing
A song you believe in
That tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway,
Yeah sing it anyway

I sing, I dream, I love

Whatever it is you're going through, always know that God answers prayers. Things happen in this life but the faithful shall be rewarded.

Aaaaw Diamond. I think you are a strong lady. We all struggle daily.I feel every experience is to teach us something as I believe life is a school. When i go thru trials...which I often do...I ask God "what do I need to take away from this situation?'Ultimately His will is for us to develop in character and be more like Christ so trials ncome so that we may die and Christ may live and reign in us. I'll pray 4 u my sister. It really does get hard sometimes. Remember God has brought u this far and He wont leave you or forsake you.

I think there are forces trying to prevent me from attending TERC. I had made up mind to be there at 11am, Italian time, but now I have to go to the bank and blah blah blah with this lady that speaks italian, cause even proto I don't know, and Im so looking forward to speaking to you all.

God I need help, seriously. Im sorta feeling what you wrote, I fully understand you, it as if we break down, we are calling God a liar, not that He didn't tell us there would be hard times, but we are supposed to try and make Him proud through them.

Well in my case, I have thoroughly disgraced him, thoroughly. I just pray that He will help me. Because now Im seriously tired of going to all this fantabulous places on my own. Enough is enough. No be by force. But I don't want to be like jonah, you get me.

Gosh, Ive really missed my peeps in US especially you my dear. Ill see if there is a phone I can call all you from without it costing me a fortune, take care my luvliest Ms D.

You know all is well right, its just tething problems, your teeth will soon come out, very nice clean and perfect. OK Im digressing.

Much love. muah.

Hawk, we may not always know where God is, but he knows where we are. Be strong.

TaureanMinx said...

Hey hope you are feeling better. Sometimes we just need to write and vent. God stays faithful

Just thought I' share this sorry its long

Proverbs 27:21: "As the refining pot for silver and the furnace for gold (bring forth all the impurities of the metal), so let a man be in his trial of praise (ridding it of all that is base or insincere) -- for a man is judged by what he praises and of what he boasts."

The Bible tells us that God tries all men's hearts to find out what is in them. How does God do this? The way God tests or tries us is to give each of us a choice when we are faced with temptation or evil. We can yield to the pressure that the devil brings against us or we can resist him and stand in faith to receive the promises of God. No matter what the devil tries to do to destroy our faith, we have been given a way to overcome him through the power of the Holy Spirit. We can stand in our trail praising God that we believe He will deliver us or we can turn on God and blame Him for our trials and troubles.

Just as the furnace is heated up to bring out the impurities in the gold and silver, when the devil "heats up" our circumstances to make it look like God will not come through, that is when we will see the things that are in our hearts. Sometimes fear, doubt and unbelief will come our of our hearts and if we do not turn to God for deliverance from these things, we will be overcome by them. We must choose to have faith in God and depend on His Word in our moments of trial. God will not fail us if we stand in faith looking to our God for our answers.

Here is anon in cali again....I'm in los angeles and feeling much better today...I will keep hope alive :-)

I read your latest post and want to tell you that the devil is a liar and deceiver. You were forgiven the minute you asked God for forgiveness. Also the only way the Holy Spirit wil depart from you is if you renounce your pledge of salvation and deny asking Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Girl, it is time to start saying "I claim my forgiveness and thank Jesus for His blood that washes my sins away". Have a lovely weekend!

Anon in Cali and TMinx.. thank you guys so much...

Mr.Laspapi... I wonder why the name "hawk" stuck with you... lol... thanks...im trying to be strong... i AM strong!

Diva sta... thanks for stopping by... I did talk it out with a couple of people... you'll find that talking it out with the right person(s) helps the situation... if only for two ppl to come together and agree together in prayer about a particular situation... im actually doing better... i know there is a testimony in this... as always...

Kafo said...

You're definitely stronger than you think you are. God will not give you a cross that you cannot bear (break to pieces and make a bonfire out of!).

So, heads up missy! :)
