    During this season of Lent, I always need a reminder to focus on WHO I am living for. This song by Francesca Battiselli spoke to me this week. I hope it will minister in a meaningful way to you also.

    "Write Your Story"

    They say
    You're the King of everything
    The One who taught the wind to sing
    The Source of the rhythm my heart keeps beating

    They say
    You can give the blind their sight
    And You can bring the dead to life
    You can be the hope my soul's been seekin'

    I wanna tell You now that I believe it
    I wanna tell You now that I believe it
    I do, that You can make me new, oh

    I'm an empty page
    I'm an open book
    Write Your story on my heart
    Come on and make Your mark

    Author of my hope
    Maker of the stars
    Let me be Your work of art
    Won't You write Your story on my heart

    Write Your story, write Your story
    Come on and write Your story, write Your story
    Won't You write Your story on my heart

    My life
    I know it's never really been mine
    So do with it whatever You like
    I don't know what Your plan is
    But I know it's good, yeah

    I wanna tell You now that I believe in
    I wanna tell You now that I believe in
    In You, so do what You do, oh

    I'm an empty page
    I'm an open book
    Write Your story on my heart
    Come on and make Your mark

    Author of my hope
    Maker of the stars
    Let me be Your work of art
    Won't You write Your story on my heart

    Write Your story, write Your story
    Come on and write Your story, write Your story
    Won't You write Your story on my heart

    I want my history
    To be Your legacy
    Go ahead and show this world
    What You've done in me
    And when the music fades
    I want my life to say

    I let You write Your story, write Your story
    Write Your story, write Your story

    I'm an empty page
    I'm an open book
    Write Your story on my heart
    Come on and make Your mark

    Author of my hope
    Maker of the stars
    Let me be Your work of art
    Won't You write Your story on my heart

    Write Your story, write Your story
    Come on and write Your story, write Your story
    Won't You write Your story on my heart"

    WHen things are not going our way and we are struggling, I find what I need most is to praise the Lord. The lyrics of this song help me to do that. I pray they will minister to your heart this week.

    Russ Taff – Praise The Lord Lyrics

    When you're up against a struggle, that shatters all your dreams
    And your hopes have been cruelly crushed by Satan's manifested schemes
    And you feel the urge within you to submit to earthly fear
    Don't let the faith you're standing in seem to disappear
    Praise the Lord, He will work through those who praise Him
    Praise the Lord, for our God inhabits praise
    Praise the Lord, for the chains that seem to bind you
    Serve only to remind you, that they drop powerless behind you
    When you praise Him
    Now, Satan is a liar and he wants to make us think
    That we are paupers, when he knows himself we're children of the King
    So lift up the mighty shield of faith for the battle must be won
    We know that Jesus Christ has risen and the work's already done
    Praise the Lord, He will work through those who praise Him
    Praise the Lord, for our God inhabits praise
    Praise the Lord, for the chains that seem to bind you
    Serve only to remind you, that they drop powerless behind you
    When you praise Him
    Praise the Lord, He will work through those who praise Him
    Praise the Lord, for our God abides in our praise
    Praise the Lord, for the chains that seem to bind you
    Serve only to remind you, that they drop powerless behind you
    When you praise Him
    When you praise Him
    When you praise Him
    When you praise
    When you praise, you praise the Lord
    Praise the Lord

    The weather where I live has been frigid with lost of snow. It is a time of year when being cooped up due to the weather can cause a feeling of loneliness and perhaps even cause turning to food. Here is a Prayer for MidWinter that I have been saying this week.
    From the rising of the midwinter sun to its setting,

    Scatter the darkness with the light of your love, O Shining One.( I say Jesus)

    Make me short on mean thoughts, long on offers words of comfort.

    Make me short on being driven, long on paying attention.

    Make me short on focusing only on my own, long on looking beyond.

    Make me short on obsessive lists, long on spontaneous acts of kindness,

    Make me short on mindless activity, long on time to reflect.

    Make me short on tradition as a habit, long on rediscovery and re-owning.

    Make me short on rushing a tiring, long on walking and wondering.

    Make me short on false, festive jollity, long on stilling and rooted joy.

    Make me short on guilt, long on being merciful to myself.

    Make me short on being overwhelmed, long on peaceableness as I set forth this day.

    -from The Celtic Wheel of the Year by Tess Ward

    I hope it ministers to you also.

    No matter what the circumstances are, we have to remember that the Bible says "Give thanks in all things"
    Don Moen is one of my favorite Christian music artists. Here are the words to one of his songs, that I hope will minister to you this week. I sing it as a prayer.

    Thank You Lord
    Song by Don Moen
    Bible says it's a good thing to give thanks to the Lord, amen
    I come before You today
    And there's just one thing that I want to say
    Thank You Lord
    Thank You Lord
    For all You've given to me
    For all the blessings I can not see
    Thank You Lord
    Thank You Lord
    With a greatful heart
    With a song of praise
    With an outstreched arm
    I will bless Your name
    Thank You Lord
    I just wanna thank You Lord
    Thank You Lord
    I just wanna thank You Lord
    Thank You Lord
    For all You've done in my life
    You took my darkness and gave me Your light
    Thank You Lord
    Thank You Lord
    You took my sin and my shame
    You took my sickness and healed all my pain
    Thank You Lord
    Thank You Lord
    With a greatful heart
    With a song of praise
    With an outstreched arm
    I will bless Your name

    The road of this weight loss journey is rough. We all have our ups and downs, successes and failures. Just remember when the going gets rough and you want to give up
    "I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me."
