Look for it

Proverbs 31:30 says, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

So, why are so many Christian men still letting beauty lead them in finding the woman God has for them? Why are they looking at a woman’s charms instead of her heart?

Many of them don’t even notice it. A male friend of mine told me as he shook his head in shame, that sadly, looks are really important for guys. And although it is important for girls too, it is much more for guys.

Speaking on behalf of myself, and being totally open and honest here…all that matters to me is that the man I am with is a Godly man who points me to Christ in every situation and is my spiritual leader and best friend.

I cried once while reading Proverbs 31 because I realized how short I fall from that description of a Godly woman. I only hope that the guy God has for me will see that at least I am trying and will see my heart. God certainly does.

It’s just written

I’m lost in your music…and I don’t ever want to be found

But maybe its not my fault

It’s just written

It’s written in the curve of your smile and the love in your eyes

When you walk away I somehow feel like you really want to stay

It’s written in the memories that we look back on

When you say you wish we could do it all again

How could it not be?

Honey, listen

It’s just written

You played the song once and I liked it

You played the song again and we danced like no one was looking at us

You played it again and I sang along and lost it, yeah I lost it

I got lost in your music and I didn’t even care

I’m still lost in your music…and I don’t ever want to be found

No, not ever

Might seem like it’s nothing

But I don’t think you’re reading

I’m not blind and smitten

Boy, it’s just written

It’s written in the curve of your smile and the love in your eyes

When you walk away I somehow feel like you really want to stay

It’s written in the memories that we look back on

When you say you wish we could do it all again

How could it not be?

Honey, listen

It’s just written

They say love will make you crazy

I’d say they’re wrong

But that would make me crazy

See, I made you laugh

Don’t I always?

Listen to that sound you hear

What is it?

The song you liked the first time you heard it

Danced to it like no one was looking at you

Sang along and lost it, yeah  you lost it

I heard you say, “Yeah!”

What’s it say?

Read it…it’s just written

That you got lost in my music and you didn’t even care

I’m lost in your music…and I don’t ever want to be found

But maybe its not my fault

It’s just written

It’s written in the curve of your smile and the love in your eyes

When you walk away I somehow feel like you really want to stay

It’s written in the memories that we look back on

When you say you wish we could do it all again

How could it not be?

Honey, listen

It’s just written

Please, please read it….it’s just written

The Social Experiment

Isn’t it funny the things you learn about people when you don’t mean to learn a thing except a name and “What’s your major? Whatcha gonna do with it after you graduate?”

Ain’t it funny that guys say they like girls who wear little to no makeup and don’t realize just how much a girl’s got on? They think it’s all natural…boy, what fools. Girls have to put aside time to look that good.

When you act like you’re in your own little world and you walk around and your looking straight ahead and not down at your beat up chucks they all want to get to your planet

People will say hi to a pretty face because it’s easier to see her smile. She’s got all her teeth in and now that I think about it, “She’s fine. Oh, yeah she’s definitely fine.”

When you don’t mean it at all….you have to pray that God will keep your feet on the ground. All you did was put on some makeup and cut your hair. You’re still the same person.

This was unintentional. Social Experiment. Now I see what you’re doing, but you don’t see where I’m going. Not playing games or trying to be someone other than me…no, not when I still laugh like, ‘A he he he!’ When I feel like myself, but I don’t look like I did….not when I came here years ago and was a shadow in the dark

Why do people have to be attractive to be noticed when God the creator looks at the heart?

This Is My Prayer

Can I be more overjoyed than I am now

That God could take away all I held on to

Would I be crazy to say I almost lost myself

To think he had left me out in the dessert to die

Discipline so sweet- oh, now I know

How I could suffer and smile

Writing this out with tears in my eyes and praise on my lips

Dear, God I hope they see it like I do

How much you love me with what you allow me to go through

Would my life be a testimony that touches at hearts

Cause them to beat in time with yours

This is my prayer

Writing this out with tears in my eyes and praise from my lips

Alone is not true- oh, now I know

You have been here always

Oh, now I know

Oh, oh now I know

Can I be more overjoyed than I am now

That God could take away

Everything that took his place

Oh, now I know

Dear, God I hope I never go back

I want you to be first always

Would I be crazy to say I almost lost myself

To think I put my passions before him

When I am his passion

Oh, now I know

This is my prayer

As I write this out with tears in my eyes and praise on my lips

How I could suffer and smile

Yes, Jesus suffered too

Oh, now I know

Can I be more overjoyed than I am now

Discipline so sweet

Dear, God

Sweet, God

How you can give and take away
