1 Kings 20:13-16 (The Message)
13 Just then a lone prophet approached Ahab king of Israel and said, "God's word: Have you taken a good look at this mob? Well, look again—I'm turning it over to you this very day. And you'll know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that I am God."
14 Ahab said, "Really? And who is going to make this happen?"
God said, "The young commandos of the regional chiefs."
"And who," said Ahab, "will strike the first blow?"
God said, "You."
1 Kings 20:13-14
* A word for those young hearts who are called to take over the nations for Christ.. A word for those who even lead those young hearts.. This is the call to believe that we are chosen .. that there has been no mistake.. This is.. a God affirmation!

I stumbled across the greatest truth
I stopped and stared at it
Trying to comprehend its meaning
But it eluded me, my wisdom failed me
I wondered if I should trust this love
Or walk away like thousands before me did
I knew that once I made this choice
There was no going back
It was my life-altering decision
Time breathed down my neck
And then I felt a little nudge
My soul longing to know it's Creator
My life needing to have a greater purpose
In a moment, I knew I believed
I believed this love
I believed that It loved me
I knew that I desired for It too
I believed that It had been waiting for me
I knew that I've always felt a need for It
And since that moment,
Nothing has ever been the same
The storms still came,
The waves still roared and crashed around me
But that was the difference -
It crashed around me now
I wasn't alone in the storm,
My heart now soared above it
And forever I shall thank the grace that called me
The grace I did not deserve
The grace that saved my soul
The grace that will take me Home
I found this amazing ad when I was browsing through a bunch of 'em for college work....and it blew my mind away!!! Even though it's an ad for a company...I feel that this is how we look to the world - a bunch of crazy ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world. You agree?

Or grand symphony
Could describe Your glory
Which leaves me in awe
No brilliant picture
Or an array of perfect colours
Could equal Your
Powerless in Your gaze
Held captive by Your voice
I've willingly lost my will
So that I may drown in Your love
You have become my only reason
To anything that's something
No uniquely sculptured word
Or eloquent phrase
Could compare to
The beauty of Your Name
No human mind
Or gregarious thoughts
Could hold against
Your most simple word

You are the words that captivate me
You are the smell of rain in the damp air
You are the breeze that moves through my hair
You are the dancing stars in the velvet sky
You are the colours in the glorious sunrise
You are the water in the winter rain,
the ocean's crown that kisses my feet
You are the light of the moon
You are the scent of flowers and the woods
You are the cherry blossoms in an orchard
You are the sound of a laughing brook
You are the twinkle in a furry dog's eyes
You are the smile on a baby's face
You are everything that makes me
smile, laugh, blush, feel loved and beautiful.
I'm blessed to be Your priority.
I love You.
Recently, I read in a book that everything we love about creation are God's special love notes to us. These are some of my favourite and every time I see, hear or feel them - I'm just reminded of His passionate love for me. I love that He romances me in such unique ways. I'm blessed to know, even if only in part, of this love that sweeps me off my feet.
