    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.

    The prayer of my heart this week is found in the lyrics of a song by Hillsong. May we always seek the ways of the Lord on this journey and in life.

    Show Me Your Ways
    Song by Hillsong Live

    Show me Your ways
    That I may walk with You
    Show me Your ways
    I put my hope in You
    The cry of my heart
    Is to love You more
    To live with the
    Touch of Your hand
    Stronger each day
    Show me Your ways
    Show me Your ways
    That I may walk with You
    Show me Your ways
    I put my hope in You
    The cry of my heart
    Is to love You more
    To live with the
    Touch of Your hand
    Stronger each day
    Show me Your ways
    Show me Your ways
    That I may walk with You
    Show me Your ways
    I put my hope in You
    The cry of my heart
    Is to love You more
    To live with the
    Touch of Your hand
    Stronger each day
    Show me Your ways
    Show me Your ways
    That I may walk with You
    Show me Your ways
    I put my hope in You
    The cry of my heart
    Is to love You more
    To live with the
    Touch of Your hand
    Stronger each day
    Show me Your ways

    If we look upward, it will be that much harder to drag us down!

    Have a blessed week.

    SOmetimes I feel so discouraged on this journey. I feel defeated and like I am a failure. Some days I feel so unworthy knowing I have not made the right choices.
    At times like those, Christian music can change my focus and lift my spirit. today I share the lyrics of a song written by Geron Davis. His wife Becky does such a touching rendition.

    Mercy Saw Me- Written By Geron Davis

    The years had left scars. The scars had left pain. How could he recognize me? I wasn't the same. I knew I should pay and I knew the price. For justice and law demanded my life. Yet, his tender heart heard my desperate cry. And he saw my past through merciful eyes.

    Chorus: Beautiful! That's how mercy saw me; Though I was broken and so lost, mercy looked past all my faults. Justice of God saw what I had done, but mercy saw me through the Son; Not what I was, but what I could be, that's how mercy saw me.

    Wherever you go, you can't go too far that his eyes of mercy can't see where you are. He loves you too much to leave you alone. You're flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone. Yet his heart cries out for your heart today. See yourself through his eyes and then you will say, you'll say:

    Bridge: Sin has stolen my dignity and all my self-esteem. But I was made brand new again when mercy looked at me.

    Know that when the Lord looks at YOU - in HIS eyes - You are beautiful!
