More TRUTH Links

Here are a few links to blog posts I came across today.

I am overwhelmed by the number of babies that die daily. I pray that people will start to see the truth about what abortion is and what it does not only to the babies but to the women who have them. The women need healing, grace, and forgiveness. The rest of us need to open our eyes.

“You Are God Alone”

Several of my friends have asked me about how I am feeling about the military moving us to North Dakota. They are just checking in to see how I am doing with the idea because my original facebook post (after I got the news) looked something like this: “I AM NOT HAPPY!!!” I should probably mention that my reaction has nothing to do with the people of ND; who I assume are great 🙂 My reaction was due to the fact that we will be nowhere near any family on either side and also because I HATE cold weather.

I will be leaving the subtropical beautiful island of Okinawa for snow and ice and cold…Burrrrrr!

Over the past two weeks I have felt a wave of bad emotions including anger, frustration, discontent, annoyance, etc. But I have also felt a wave of good emotions including: trust, hope, comfort, etc. I am sure that all of these good emotions have come from the Holy Spirit. I have completely decided to put my trust in God about this move. I cannot see past the horizon to know what is in store for my family but I can take comfort in knowing that God is ultimately in control. If he places us in ND then I believe that there is a reason. Maybe it is so we can be a blessing to someone. Maybe it is so we can receive a blessing. I don’t know. But I do know that God does and he will take care of  me and my family. Even so; I will truly miss Okinawa and my friends that will forever be apart of my family.

And for more confirmation; our worship leader choose a beautiful song for us to sing at church this coming Sunday. As I sang it tonight during our worship team practice; I really paid attention to the words. It confirmed in my heart that I needed to fully trust in my God’s plan for my life. Listen to it if you have time.  P.S: Clark, you can trust that God will replace those of us who are leaving the worship team too. You might even get replacements that aren’t as OCD as I am and who actually sing loud enough for you 🙂

You Are God Alone

By: Phillips, Craig, & Dean

You are not a god
Created by human hands
You are not a god
Dependent on any mortal man
You are not a god
In need of anything we can give
By Your plan; that’s just the way it is

Chorus:
You are God alone
From before time began
You were on Your throne
Your are God alone
And right now
In the good times and bad
You are on Your throne
You are God alone

You’re the only God
Whose power none can contend
You’re the only God
Whose name and praise will never end
You’re the only God
Who’s worthy of everything we can give
You are God; And that’s just the way it is

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
Unchangeable
Unshakable
Unstoppable
That’s what You are

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Bridge
