It’s A Bloody Battle

20170930_134258

I go to the gym three times a week and work out like a fiend to get all the happy hormones I can get in a morning! I listen to my playlist through my headphones, but there are TV monitors in the gym that I can not escape the view of. I have purposely quit watching and listening to news over the last few years to de clutter my mind and allow space for more peace in my life.

I blogged last week about the devastation in Las Vegas and the last few day, news has been about all of the perversion in Hollywood (not surprising there;-( Devastation seems to be on every side. Hurricanes, fires, scandal, the demise of families; this is a hurting world. I have been harmed by people in my life and I have also caused harm because of my selfishness.  I understand pain very acutely and I understand stumbling and making a mess of my life. From here forward, I want to be a healer and a light to others who are in darker places.

I wrote a song last year as part of a healing process that I want to share. I had this deep pain and I had to get it out. God gave me the ability to write this song and music and it was pivotal in facing the trauma and bringing healing. A friend of mine used the term “bloody battle” to describe her journey and I resonated with that. My heart is that I can comfort someone else by the understanding I have received  and the vulnerability to give it away. I believe there is only one face you can look into, one Name that has power to overcome the world, and one voice that you can listen to, to apprehend this healing. His Name is Jesus. You can click here to hear the song on YouTube. Many Blessings and Peace to you<3

Soul Drink Deeply

streams_brooks_water_moss_leavesSoul drink deeply from the water of life

From the throne of God, Rivers of Water

Jesus Your the Greatest Need of my soul

The only thing that deeply satisfies.

 

This is a chorus from a song I wrote a few months ago. Hopefully in the very near future I will have the recorded music linked to my blog- a lot more of me can be understood in the music and melody I write than from words alone.

I have kept my self  busy with activities, I have “run” so I do not have to deal with the hard things of life, I have sought satisfaction through other people…and it has all left me wanting. But when I spend time with The Son, He speaks to me with a sharp sword that pierces the thoughts and intents of my heart and puts it at peace. Today I had to take most of the day to get to that peace, but He spoke and the anxieties, confusion and doubt instantly left when He did.

I think that truth is it for today!! He is the only thing that can satisfy<3
