It's All a Matter of Perspective


Well Done (Worship Wednesday)

This girl is so precious! Love this song!



I'm headed down this narrow road
Chosen by the few
And all that I know is
You told me to follow You

I'm taking a risk and leaving it all
Not knowing what I'll go through
But I'm not alone
As long as I follow You

So when my life's a leap of faith
I can hear You say

Well done, well done
I'm gonna chase You, Lord
I'm gonna show the world Your love, woah
I'll run, I'll run
I'm gonna run this race
To hear You say well done

If people walk with me, talk with me, looking for truth
They're gonna find out soon
If they're following me then
They're gonna follow You

So let my life speak loud and clear
Lord, I wanna hear

Well done, well done
I'm gonna chase You, Lord
I'm gonna show the world Your love, woah
I'll run, I'll run
I'm gonna run this race
To hear You say well done

I'm so glad that I get to serve You, Lord
You're the only One I am living for, woah
I'm gonna run straight into Your open arms
I'm gonna follow You with my all heart, woah, woah

Well done, well done
I'm gonna chase You, Lord
I'm gonna show the world Your love, woah
I'll run, I'll run
I'm gonna run this race
To hear You say well done

Others, but Not Me

One thing I know or have realized about myself is that I will fight to the death to defend or protect my family or a family member. I will stand up for them. I will fight, fight, fight. You don't mess with my family, oh no you don't.

If I know my family member or even a friend is wrong I will play peacemaker to the nth degree. I can play devil's advocate like no other. Yea, I do this for friends too.

I am a peacemaker. I like love and roses and everyone to just be nice and get along.

I've learned that I can help others and give others great, sound and helpful advice. But when it comes to me personally I don't always stand up for myself or fight for 'me' necessarily. I can't give myself good, sound advice like I can everyone else. I can be there for everyone else. I can always find the silver lining and the good in other's situations. I can help others in their struggles. I can bring peace amidst chaos.

I can be calm in the midst of a storm.

But when my own brain wreaks all havoc I can't help it be still. Anyone else this way? :)
