~Dance Little Girl Dance~

When I was growing up I always wanted to be a Little Ballerina every girl’s dream right yes. Has for me my dream was shattered by the bad abuse I went through my heart was forever Broken and then my Dreams being a little ballerina was gone. In my mind I said to myself I can never be what I want to be as a child I could never be that little ballerina that I wanted to be I was to dumb to be a dancer that is what my daddy would say to me you are to dumb to be a dancer OK so hearing that I believed it and kept saying that to myself till my brain was shut down by more abuse I was that little girl who dreamed and then I was that little girl who got the beating by my daddy what’s next as a child when your heart gets Shattered as a child there is no way that you can have your dream you wanted  I wanted to be a little girl who can dance around and be happy not sad and cry and get abused I wanted to dance myself away from the home I grew up in far away where I can not be found and to see myself dance away in the light not being in the dark  as I sit in my dark closet all I can think of is what is next that my daddy will do to me will I get the beating or will I get something else bad a little girl who dreams of something sweet a little girl’s dream gets broken and her heart breaks now what? Can this little girl still dream of that little ballerina dancing and having fun NO this little girl is the inside girl the little girl out side is a no body as I sit here deeper still and nothing else to say but to say I am a little girl who just wants her life back so I can dream of being that one little ballerina who just wants to dance away.

(So let the little girl dance)

Let the little girl dance

She never danced before

So let her on the floor

(So let her on the floor)

Let the little girl dance

Let the little girl dance

She wants to give it a try

So let the little girl by

(So let the little girl by)

She’s been a little wallflower on the shelf

Standing by herself

Now she got the nerve to take a chance

So let the little girl dance

Let the little girl through

She wants to pass by you

Buddy, can’t you see

She wants to dance with me

(She wants to dance with me)

[Instrumental Interlude]

She’s been a little wallflower on the shelf

Standing by herself

Now she got the nerve to take a chance

So let the little girl dance

Let the little girl through

She wants to pass by you

Buddy, can’t you see

She wants to dance with me

(She wants to dance with me)

Dance, little girl,

Dance, little girl,

Whirl and twirl

Faster and faster

Until you master

The music as it flows.

Dance, little girl,

Dance, little girl,

Whirl and twirl

Tighten and tighten

Until you lighten

The chords inside your soul.

Dance, little girl,

Dance, little girl,

How quickly shifts the light;

How sudden comes the night;

How color goes to gray;

How darkness ends the day.

Dance, little girl.

Dance, little girl.

Dance yourself away.

*Life Interrupted*

Our church is doing a study by Priscilla Shirer called ‘Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted’ and we are now in week three. The first week we stared this study it was hard for me as well as so many others in the class. I cried that first week because my life just got ‘big time Interrupted’ by so many things. I will start with my child hood.

I was abused by many people in my family. Yet God has showed me so much during this study and I have seen God work in me through this interrupted life. We all struggle with something in life, but by the grace of God, when we go to Him with our pain and trials and struggles and our brokenness, God heals the broken hearts that we have. Sometimes, like myself, we hide from our trials and struggles. I do that as do you – we all do. There are times in my life that I do not want to deal with the drama of my life, and there are times when I do not want to even here God’s voice speaking to me and telling me what to do, so I ignore Him. Not the best thing to do now, is it? No! I know life is not easy at times, and certainly we do go through a lot in life, but we must not ignore our Heavily Father. He knows what is best. 

So this is my life that was interrupted by lots of things, and I pray that this post will touch someone. I would encourage you to get the study. It’s a great study to learn from when your life gets ‘Interrupted.’ I heard from a friend who said that it is our trials which produce endurance! Oh so true.


As the Lord uses our ‘interrupted life’ or ‘divinely intervened’ life to move forward, I think this is a good way to keep moving in the right direction. Sometimes it takes the interruption to allow us to see the plank in our own eye…or as someone else has likened it to… THE Gardener coming and pruning our hearts. (May you all be blessed as you continue on in your life?)

*Isaiah 30:21*

Your ears will hear a word behind you. The is the way, walk in it, whenever you turn to the right or  to the left.    


If Your Life is Interrupted by someone or something please leave a comment let me know so I can pray for you.

~Burning In My Soul~

I want my heart to burn like a candle, so bright that you can’t see it beating. Why? this post I want my heart to burn like fire so bright so I cant feel it burning God has been teaching me well when it comes to obeying Him sometimes I feel like a candle burning inside of me its like lighting it from inside your heart the candle is Sparkling and shimmering the candle glows bright and burning my hopes and dreams swirling in Like a graceful ballerina the light dances and sways, my thoughts mesmerized by the silent beat, its beauty reflects through the windows of my soul. I feel empowered. I feel hopeful. This tiny flame casts its light illuminating the darkness. What a symbol to embrace! Let my heart be like the candle spreading its light of joy, of compassion, of love. Let it reflect in the hearts of many and awaken our senses, to live in the light…to be the light…forever burning bright. The candle is bright and Stay close, my heart, to the one who knows your ways; Come into the shade of the tree that allays has fresh flowers. Don’t stroll idly through the bazaar of the perfume-markers: Stay in the shop of the sugar-seller. If you don’t find true balance, anyone can deceive you; anyone can trick out of a thing of straw, and make you take it for gold don’t squat with a bowl before every boiling pot; In each pot on the fire you find very different things. Not all sugarcane have sugar, not all abysses a peak; not all eyes possess vision, not every sea is full of pearls. O nightingale, with your voice of dark honey! Go on lamenting! Only your drunken ecstasy can pierce the rock’s hard heart! Surrender yourself, and if you cannot be welcomes by the Friend, Know that you are rebelling inwardly like a thread that doesn’t want to go through the needle’s eye! The awakened heart is a lamp; protect it by the him of your robe! Hurry and get out of this wind, for the weather is bad. And when you’ve left this storm, you will come to a fountain; you’ll find a Friend there who will always nourish your soul. And with your soul always green, you’ll grow into a tall tree flowering always with sweet light-fruit, whose growth is interior.

The other day I was angry at something and rather than open my mouth I took it to God At times your eyes are aflame with anger, like thunder that is only looking for a place to happen. Sometimes your eyes flow soothing like the ocean and embraces me to spend time with you God It’s always good to go to the one who knows best that is our heavenly Father. Unknown emotions, people and places are hiding and still I want to spend time with you God when I can. Leave marks there for God to deal with them not you. I have learned that in my life if you struggle with anger and emotions you take it to God it helps He can heal all that. Its like this song I heard called “Burn” By Jo Dee Messina -What a song to here when I heard this song that is when I was feeling all this in my soul see I had a candle just burning inside.


*Jo Dee Messina – “Burn*

Do you wanna be a poet and write

Do you wanna be an actor up in lights

Do you wanna be a soldier and fight for love

Do you wanna travel the world

Do you wanna be a diver for pearls

Or climb a mountain and touch the clouds above

Be anyone you want to be

Bring to life your fantasies

But I want something in return

I want you to burn

Burn for me baby

Like a candle in my night

Oh burn

Burn for me, burn for me

Are you gonna be a gambler and deal

Are you gonna be a doctor and heal

Or go to heaven and touch God’s face

Are you gonna be a dreamer who sleeps

Are you gonna be a sinner who weeps

Or an angel under grace

I’ll lay down on your bed of coals

Offer up my heart and soul

But in return

I want you to burn

Burn for me baby

Like a candle in my night

Oh burn

Burn for me, burn for me

Laugh for me, cry for me

Pray for me, fly for me

Live for me, die for us

I want you to burn

Burn for me baby

Like a candle in my night

Oh burn

Burn for me, burn for me

When You Don’t See God Through Your Struggles

*Thinking Thoughts*

What love notes does God send you?

I am always reading in my bible, and asking God to send me verses, and when ever I ask God, he gives me verses. I was reading in my bible, and one of God’s love notes to me was a verse that has been on my heart I always ask God to give me a verse that will bless me.

 

*Love Note From God* Is out of Heb 11:1 and it reads this “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see”… But where do we get the hope?

God is so good I love Psalms God showed me this verse this morning when I woke up Psalm 62: and it reads this

 

Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. How long will you assault me? Would all of you throw me down— this leaning wall, this tottering fence? Surely they intend to topple me from my lofty place; they take delight in lies. With their mouths they bless, but in their hearts they curse.Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on Godhe is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Surely the lowborn are but a breath, the highborn are but a lie. If weighed on a balance, they are nothing; together they are only a breath. Do not trust in extortion or put vain hope in stolen goods; though your riches increase, do not set your heart on them. One thing God has spoken, two things I have heard: “Power belongs to you, God, and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”; and, “You reward everyone according to what they have done.”

I realize at times we do struggle with life stuff God makes me smile all the time when I pray and when I am at church the one thing that makes me smile is when I am struggling with something God will tell me to open my bible and go to a verse that will help me and lift me up like a song this Sunday we sang this song and I heard the words to it and then I sang it and it so much touched my heart so deep that I had tears flowing down my face this song was so beautiful Travis Cottrell written this song so well.

This song I am posting we sang this song at church this Sunday as I was listing to it and really spoke to me and touched me so much deep in my heart my prayer is that this song will touch your heart as well

A friend had said to me that sometimes we let the darkness take center stage when we should look for the LIGHT in the small but sweet things. So true I can relate to this in my life right now there is a lot of struggles and darkness in my life In the midst of all your struggles, what makes you smile? Where do you see God?? These questions make me think and ask God.

~Little Girl Healer~

(Heal My Heart God)

At the age of 3 years old after my Mama leaving me all alone with my drunk dad and abusive dad my dark closet was the only spot that kept me safe from my dad I would sit In the dark closet and cry and talk to  myself asking myself why me There is a song that I heard Reminds me of my child hood going through the Emotions the abuse the beating as a child all I wanted was a mom to love me I did not have a mom to love me just a dad that abused me beat me this post is about the song and why I picked this song it relates to me as a child growing up I call myself Little Girl Healer why do I call myself that because I am a little girl who is still trying to heal from all she has been through lots of things as a child. This song I heard is called I Am Bye Nichole Nordeman if you play the video and read the Lyrics its very powerful words to sing I so love this song.


(I AM – Nichole Nordeman)

Pencil marks on a wall, I wasn’t always this tall

You scattered some monsters from beneath my bed.

You watched my team win, you watched my team lose

Watched when my bicycle went down again.

And when I was weak, unable to speak, still I could call you by name

And I said Elbow Healer, Super Hero, come if you can.

And you said, I AM.

Only sixteen, life is so mean

What kind of curfew’s is at 10 PM?

You saw my mistakes, you watched my heart break

Heard when I swore I’d never love again

And when I was weak, unable to speak, still I could call you by name

And I said Heartache Healer, Secret Keeper, be my best Friend

And you said, I AM.

You saw me wear white by pale candle light

I said “forever” to what lies ahead.

Two kids and a dream, with kids that can scream

Too much it might seem when it’s 2 am.

And when I am weak, unable to speak still I will call you by name

Oh, Shepherd, Savior, Pasture Maker, Hold on to my hand.

You say, I AM.

The winds of change and circumstance

Blow in and all around us

So we find a foothold that’s familiar.

And bless the moments that we feel you nearer.

When life had begun, I was woven and spun

You let the angels dance around the throne.

Who can say when, but they’ll dance again

When I am free and finally headed home.

I will be weak, unable to speak

Still I will call you by name

Creator, Maker, Life Sustainer,

Comforter, Healer, My Redeemer

Lord and King, Beginning and the End

I AM, Yes I AM.

(The good girl list or the never enough lists) OK I said to myself I can see were this will go in my life well spoke to my heart for sure my list is

(The never good enough list) Hmmmmm need to change that

(The good girl list) not ready yet for that yet this is how I feel growing up as a child even now trying to get back on the right path UGH its hard got lot of Emotions I pray that this post will help someone out there who reads this what list do you belong to tell me in a comment.

~Discipline~

Discipline your kids in my world my life my discipline was abuse what is your discipline in your life growing up are you disciplining your kids the right way God has taught you to do. Discipline to me means self control. Self control is a characteristic that comes with wisdom and maturity. It is a trait that we are taught in the home, at school, in the military, and even in the workplace. Without discipline, self control, the world would be in chaos. If that were to happen, human kind would not survive at their current level. Discipline must be acquired early in life for success to follow. If parents do not discipline their children, then the children will have no idea how to behave in school. That makes it difficult for the teacher as well as the student. If discipline is not learned, the student will continually encounter difficulties in school which will carry over into their adult life.

                                           (The Rape of Innocence)

                                 Ever felt worthless? This note is for you!

This morning I woke up thinking about my past, the mistakes I’ve made, and how unlikely it would seem that God would want to use me, a huge screw up according to history, to be a role model for anyone. But that is the beauty and power of God.

God is infinite in power and might, sovereign in His doings. He doesn’t need a person who believes in their own goodness and righteousness. After all, why would they give HIM glory for turning them around if in their own mind, they already had their lives together? No. God is always calling those lost, lonely, hurting souls to himself, those who feel useless, worthless, powerless, unwanted, unloved, unappreciated. Sure, He takes all kinds, but the Bible teaches us that not MANY wise, noble, educated, “all that” people are called, but that God calls the foolish, base, nothing things of the world to bring to nothing the things that are so that NO FLESH CAN GLORY IN HIS SIGHT! (Read 1 Corinthians 1)


So, what point am I making? You may feel useless and worthless. You may have slept around so much that you’ve forgotten some of the people’s names. You may have been a whore, a stripper, a pimp, a player, a drug dealer, a drug addict, a low life, a thief, a hood, a hustler, a liar, a robber, a fake, a simpleton, anabused woman, a used up man, or an abandoned child. Whatever you WERE, God is ready to turn it around and set you on a high place. You can’t get too low for God because His arms aren’t so shortened that they can’t reach you. You can’t bother him with your prayers because His ear is never too heavy to hear you.

I pray that you don’t allow condemnation, past mistakes and the judgmental glare of others to turn you away from God. I pray that you learn to accept that a horrible beginning sometimes is all that is needed for a blessed end. Me personally, for those who saw this “house” in the beginning (sex, lies and videotape), it was a hot horrible mess. But how do you see it now? Isn’t it just a testimony of God’s grace and power? Just because I live and breathe, because I’m still beautiful after being abused, because I’m still intelligent after dropping out of school the first time, because I own my own businesses and excel over almost all my equals though I don’t have a Master’s degree, because I have an unbelievably patient and loving husband though I used to hate men, because I am yet loved, called and justified by God though I’ve sinned repeatedly since I met Him, because I remain standing after all is said and done, because my heavenly Father testifies that I make Him smile, THIS IS PROOF of His unfailing love and mercy and unlimited power.


Therefore my brothers and sisters, be strong in the LORD and the power of HIS might. Lift up your eyes and look to the hills from where you help comes. Trust in the Lord and acknowledge Him in all your ways. Your path is being directed because we know and understand that a man’s heart devises a way but the Lord directs His steps. Though he may end up falling seven times or seven hundred times, he’ll get back up every one of them. Stop thinking it’s over because you screwed up. This, dear friends, is just the beginning. Maybe now you’ll stop thinking you’re so wonderful and realize you need Him. When you DO THAT, all of heaven will open to you. Amen.

~Faithful God~

Last night Jan 22 2012 as I went to bed I prayed and asked God to give me the Strength in my life and show me how to make things in my life better as I was praying I thought of these words that I have written down long time ago and it made me go find those words the first place I looked for those words on the paper was my song book  and there it was God you are so good to me thank you for showing me where they are as I read those words I had tears flowing down my face one little drop of tear fell on my nose and at that moment all I could think of was God standing in front of me looking at me and saying I am your Father who you should obey I will show you the Strength you need in that time of moment with God I saw this shadow behind him and it was not the shadow of God it was the shadow of Satin and out of no where this big wind came across me and then the shadow was gone right about now your reading this and in your mind your like wow what a moment to have with God yes it was an awesome moment with God it felt so good to have that moment as I closed my eyes to sleep I heard him say sleep my Sweet Girl so I did. Woke up Jan 23rd 2012 with the smile on my face and in awe of what God did last night and what he showed me on my heart I had these words Give me Strength today has I walk in Faith my Faithful God I Love You. From Your Sweet Girl Lisa.

                                                           

                       ~Give Me Strength~

This is my prayer to thee, my lord—strike,

Strike at the root of penury in my heart.

Give me the strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows.

Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service.

Give me the strength never to disown the poor or bend my knees before insolent might.

Give me the strength to raise my mind high above daily trifles.

And give me the strength to surrender my strength to thy will with love.

                                                              

 

Then after having my time with God today on my heart God told me to open to Mathew and this is what it says “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14)

The I thought of this song called Faithful God what a song to here beautiful powerful my heart has been touched my soul has been in great peace God is so Faithful Amen.

(Faithful God by Laura Story)

May the grace that sought my heart on that first day
Be the grace that binds my heart to stay
May the truth that opened up my eyes on that first time
Be the thoughts on my mind that never go away

For You are a lamp to my feet
A light to my path
You’re the hand that’s holding me

Faithful God, every promise kept
Every need You’ve met, faithful God

May the love that caught my heart to set it free
Be the love that others see in me
And may this hope that reaches to the depths of human need
Be the song that I sing in joy and suffering

For You are the love that never leaves
The friend that won’t deceive
You’re the one sure thing

Faithful God, every promise kept
Every need You’ve met, faithful God
All I am and all I’ll ever be
Is all because You love faithfully
Faithful God

How deep, how wide the love
That pierced His side, the love
Redemption’s mine, oh love
That will not let me go
How deep Your love

How deep, how wide the love
That pierced His side, the love
Redemption’s mine, oh love
That will not let me go

How deep, how wide the love
That pierced His side, the love
Redemption’s mine, oh love
That will not let me go

Faithful God, every promise kept
Every need You’ve met, faithful God
All I am and all I’ll ever be
Is all because You love faithfully
Faithful God, faithful God

~The Beautiful Mess of Life~

I don’t know what journey God has brought me to this place of this post but I do know that God is Faithful and always will be God is amazing I have seen so many things through my life having God on my side to guide me through life but I do know that God can do anything if you believe in Him trust me when I say that I been hearing the word Hope not sure why God keeps saying this word to me all I can do is take it and hold on to this word Hope God will show me why he gave me this word only on his time not mine I here people saying I will believe in God when he does the things I pray for no that is not how God works hes there you just got to believe in him and trust him God always seems to amaze me in my life Journey there is hope out there and God is there I have had some emotions through out Christmas and I felt God right there with me through every tear that fell down my face God was there when I was feeling sad.Not sure why this song God will show me or tell me why when God is ready to show me or tell me why I think God wants to heal me and heal all the people who are hurting out there that is what this song means to me.

Lyrics to Healer By Kari Jobe

and heal all my disease

Pre-chorus:
I trust in You
I trust in You

Verse

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge:
Nothing is impossible for You
Nothing is impossible
Nothing is impossible for You
You hold my world in Your hands
Nothing is impossible for You
Nothing is impossible
Nothing is impossible for You
You hold my world in Your hands

Chorus:
I believe You’re my healer
I believe You are all I need
Oh yes You are, yes You are
I believe You’re my portion
Lord, I believe You’re more than enough for me
Jesus You’re all I need
More than enough for me
Jesus You’re all I need
You’re my healer [You're my healer]

By pushing out or trying to escape from a negative situation or thought, you deny a part of yourself. You don’t transform something by denying it. You can’t. You must go through it.In every mess there is beauty. In every beauty, there is a mess.So instead of trying to move away from the mess, go through it. If you always make space for it, it will never control or hinder you again.Not sure why this video once again its all God he will tell me why this video maybe its a test from God maybe God will show me why till then enjoy watching the video maybe who ever plays the video it will touch your heart like it did mine.

And I sing
My hope is in You, Lord (X3)

I heard this verse Hummm makes me think of my past still trying to over come it all.

*Letting go of the past doesn’t mean you forget it. It just means you can’t change it…so why hang onto it? Why risk losing all the wonderful things God has for you by stubbornly hanging onto something that is gone? Live in the present and hold onto the hope that God promises to those who believe in His Son. “….I know the plans I have for you….a future and a hope….” Jeremiah 29:11 (paraphrase mine)*

~Go Light Your World Lyrics~

There is a candle in every soul
Some brightly burning, some dark and cold
There is a Spirit who brings a fire
Ignites a candle and makes His home

So carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the hopeless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world

Frustrated brother, see how he’s tried to
Light his own candle some other way
See now your sister, she’s been robbed and lied to
Still holds a candle without a flame

So Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the lonely, the tired and worn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world

Cause We are a family whose hearts are blazing
So let’s raise our candles and light up the sky
Praying to our Father, in the name of Jesus
Make us a beacon in darkest times

So Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the helpless, deceived and poor
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world

Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the hopeless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world

We cannot hold a torch to light anther’s path without brightening our own. Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space.  It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe.  It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished. We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light. People are like stained-glass windows.  They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within. Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine. The windows of my soul I throw Wide open to the sun.In the beginning there was nothing.  God said, “Let there be light!”  And there was light.  There was still nothing, but you could see it a whole lot better. In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don’t. For light I go directly to the Source of light, not to any of the reflections.  ~Peace~  Alas! must it ever be so? Do we stand in our own light, wherever we go And fight our own shadows forever?
