I am there…

When you fall asleep and close your eyes to dream of something sweet
I am there

When you cry and yell for me
I am there by your side, you just can’t see

When you are waiting for all to calm down
I am there to lighten the sound
I am there to unshaken the ground

When all you need is a long embracing hug
I am there with many angels comforting your soul

When you may think I am to far away, just speak to me,
I am there when you pray

And when times in you day are not glorifying to me and rest is all you need
I am there to give you rest to cast those burdens far

Most of all when you FEEL like nothing else could get worse that life is just to hard

Remember the death of my son on the cross,
Although he was sacrificed, it wasn’t a loss

Good can come out of bad, you just have to trust in me

When you are sleeping and resting your soul
Just remember I am there putting back those broken pieces and making you whole.

So next when you close your eyes just get some rest
Remember I am always there by your side giving you the very best

Little Blessings

Little blessings mean soooo much. I was talking to my bro the other night and after talking to him and his friends i was searching for some verses. I came across this verse and was so blessed by it. So i will now share with you a little blessing. But before i do.
We are His little blessing. He is blessed by being our father. all we have to do is NOTHING. just love HIM.

" There are many plans in a man's heart, Nevertheless the Lord's counsel - that will stand. " Proverbs 19:21

when i read this verse , it really was just an eye opener that we may have our own plans that sometimes don't really include His plans. And because of that sinful nature we miss out on the little blessings. I encourage you all, any body , that if you aren't walking to meet God than you are walking to meet Satan. That is harsh but so true. It says in the bible that we are either for Him or against Him.
Desire His plans for your life. We will fall in sin but He will save us from death. Live your life for Him.
We have that promise " The name of the Lord is a strong tower ; the rightous run in to it and are safe." Proverbs 18:10 .

May you all have a blessed day !!!

Fall to Him

even when the sun is out and the wind begins to blow
a overwhelming peace calms my heart to a slow
it is almost like awaking from a long nap
unsure of the surrondings , uncertain of the path
i walk in the heat while i am so cold
i walk through the wind with nothing to hold
and at times i think i will fall on my hands and knees
fearing a god who gives me air to breathe
wondering what my purpose , amazed that He doesn't see
the path's i have taken and choices i have made
once a different person , but now saved.
this confusing time can only get better
a sweeter moment as i read His letter
"Don't give up hope when things are tough
stand even when you may fall
trust that all the times you do choose the wrong
i know that in your heart you are strong."
as i walk on that sunny day as the wind begins to blow
His overwhelming presence calms my heart to a slow.

amazing grace

Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wrench like me....i once was lost but now i am found was blind but now i see.
The Lord is so awsome. It is truely a privalige to speak of Him. To have friends and to have that fellowship with eachother. I am so excited that we have our life already awaiting us and we just get to stroll on by. Now really , its not that easy to just take life and not have some input in God's glorious plans. Of course we will want to tweak it but the Lord is almighty how could we not trust Him.

Sometimes i stand and stare outside the box, just to get out of where i lie
sometimes i wish that this life wasnt so hard and that all my doubts would dissapear
sometimes i walk in a path i can't seem to see an end that doesnt seem near
and sometimes i sit in the corner waiting for life to end.
In all these times not once even though there was doubt and fear have i ever been alone
when i stood and stared outside that box, He was there
when i wished that this life wasn't so hard , He went through it all
when i walked in the path that awaited new life, He carried me ever step
and when i sat in that corner waiting for life to end , He was there promising me a new life and His hand.
Oh amazing Savior how gracious your king
to live a perfect life , to give us everything.
Oh what a precious God who made us all
my perfect true love who will never let me fall.

Stand, GO and speak of me...

I can not change the descions i have made,I can not be this person who lives in the world and who lives for the crowd,The Lord has changed my heart and all my future plans he has given me hope and a promse in His hands .
Chorus:
Stand , Go, Speak of me, my child your life is in my Hands
So , Stand, Go , Speak of me, my child your life is in my Hands.
The love of Jesus Christ is truely found in me,
the love of Jesus Christ is truely found in me.
I am not in the world like my flesh desires I choose to be my saviors child and stand before my God . He shows His light through my heart so many can see. The love of Jesus Christ is truely found in me. My sins and flesh are dead and new life is what I have. so i will stand and go and speak of Him to all that i see, i will lift my hands and worship this God . A God of love, love in Him. True love for you and me.

PUT GOD FIRST

WE ARE THE FAMILY OF GOD.... SO WHY DON'T WE START ACTING LIKE IT.

You know what really hurts God more than it hurts me is when we all get bitter, mean, hurtful , and worldy towards our fellow brothers and sisters. I can say right now that i am that way...i don't like it but sometimes my flesh wants to control my spirit and i let it. now the Lord loves you and me sooooooo much that it hurts Him when we hurt eachother.

Advice: friendship is something that the Lord has blessed us with , so that we may have fellowship and share about Jesus to one another. But if don't treat eachother the way we treat God, than we are just acting like the world. This really bothers me...God tells us that we are His children but honestly lets not act like one. I mean , i love you this day and the next your not my friend anymore. REMEMber that FRIEndship is a blessing not a curse. Words do hurt and someday people will no longer care about that word, it will just be ....oh can i use you now and later i will just throw you out of my life.

Be blessed by what the Lord has given you and also...... if our Lord who sent His only son to DIE for yours and my sins and JESUS can forgive you and me than i am sure that you can at least forgive and hope that the Lord can mend whatever situation. Never ever think that life is over w/out a friend cause even when you dont have any HE is you best friend. Dont ever compromise or think little of our God. Expect great things and know that He will be by your side.
ALWAYS PUT GOD FIRST AND EVERYTHING AFTER THAT.

love ya all,
Melissa

TRUTH

Ok here's the truth. I want to travel, teach kids, teach as a professor some odd fun thing, sing for church, do worship, learn guitar and make music for God, start a church or be involved with starting one, live in europe, mexico, south africa, riverside, and wherever my Lord has me to live. I think it would be awsome if i finished at OCC, attended bible college, and cal - baptist. I want to be organized and sure that i will pass all my classes with flying colors, always want to be involved with the ministry, eventually go on a missions trip, get a passport, eventually own a truck, trust that God will provide in any situation that i am in. Live with my greatest friends in the world, go on raod trip, pass the tests that God gives me, not care what others think of me( working on that , getting some progress), learn to hip- hop and crip walking, get married and have 3-4 kids and adopt 1. start a bible study and open my home for church things, not fear anything except my Lord. Be a light in this dark world. realize that i can't do anything with my strength that i need to give up my flesh and pride and rely on God to help me through. never change the way God made me instead grow and become the woman after His heart.

The truth comes out. are you ready to listen?
can you even grasp the thought
of more than yourself , of a God?
is it possible to gain a father so fast
to leave the fear behind to never look back
are you ready to change for better?
are you ready to live in love?
is it ok to have these desires
when they glorify the Lord?
questioning the possiblity of them ever taking place
I am ready to listen , scared to grasp anyone but me,
scared to think i have a father that i dont see
i dont need to look back and He forgets your past.
I am ready to change for the better
to live in love
to know that all my desires in Him will be blessed by Him,
and i question His power and mine
in the end knowing He is the truth and devine.
