The pictures in my slide show are ones that I have taken in Tahiti, Ireland, Hawaii, and on 2 different trips to Australia. I love landscape photos and have been blessed to be able to capture photos of some of the most beautiful places in the world. Enjoy!

About Me

My photo
Constant thinker and dreamer...just a girl livin for Jesus who wants to make a difference in the world.

I don't want to be lost again...

Moments come, moments go....

So many times in my walk with God, I stand questioning myself.  What could God possibly want from me?  Why does He need me?  What is so amazing about this, is that usually within minutes of those thoughts flooding my mind, I am gently reminded that God doesn't want anything from me.  God doesn't need anything from me.  He is God.  He wants me to be faithful to Him.  He wants me to bear His name.  He wants me to wear His name proudly.  It's an honor.  The highest calling upon our life is to be a Christian.  To bear His name...bear His resemblance.  We are made in His image, not our own.  Who's life are we living anyway?  This isn't our life, it was given to us.  It was bought with a price.  We don't get to return it for a full refund.  We don't even get to mark it down.  The gift of our life is priceless.  There can never be an amount placed on it.

When we are born, we are born lost.  We are born without a schedule, without a path.  We are born into sin.  After we are born, our choices take us down different paths, roads, and walkways of life.  Some of these roads are narrow, some are one-way streets, some are dead ends.  You can't turn back.  What you have done has already been done.  I just thank Jesus that we don't have to be lost.  We don't have to find someone and ask for directions.  The directions were there the whole time.  We just have to open the map.  We have to open the book.  We have to open our hearts.

There is a song called "Grace" by Saving Jane that is holding onto my heart right now.  I don't want  to be lost again.  Sometimes it's easier to choose the wrong way.  It's harder to stay on the straight and narrow.  Have you ever thought you were so lost that you could never be found again?  It's easy to think that.  But that thinking is wrong.  As long as there is a breath in your body, you can be found.  You can be found by the One who had never even left you.  He has been there the whole time.  He will always be there.  Jesus will never leave us.  This is a promise He made.

Jesus, be my refuge.  Be my strength, be the light that leads me home everyday...Your eternal home.  One day this earth will pass away...I will be on a one way street to Heaven...because I'm not going to be lost again...

I don't wanna see, I don't wanna see anything
I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be lost again
I don't wanna walk, I don't wanna walk far from You
I just wanna live, I just wanna live like You do
As I stumble to the light of grace
You said You'd always have a place for me
Got a little scared, got a little scared in the woods
And everywhere I turn, everywhere I turn nothing's good
Then I saw a little light, saw a little light shine for me
And I found a little path, found a little path at my feet
As I fumble with the gift of my free will
He says hush now, listen to my voice, be still
My refuge, my Father
The only Living Water
I'm weary, I'm broken
I've cracked my heart wide open
Unholy, unworthy
And still You reassure me
You knew me
Before I knew myself
I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be lost again
