♪ Song of the Week ♪

Lyrics: 

It seemed like an ordinary night
But we’ve never seen stars shining so bright
There’s something about this star

Even though it seems so far
Hallelu
Hallelujah

Behold Jesus is born
Glory to God in the highest
Behold Jesus is born
Glory to God forever

Now is hope in our lives
‘Cause God is loving and kind
Even though we fail
He’s still Emmanuel

Hallelu
Hallelujah
Behold Jesus is born
Glory to God in the highest
Behold Jesus is born
Glory to God forever

He is our shepherd and he is our strength
I won’t be afraid, I won’t be afraid
He is our comfort and he is our friend
I won’t be afraid, I won’t be afraid

Behold Jesus is born
Glory to God in the highest
Behold Jesus is born
Glory to God forever

Behold Jesus is born
Glory to God in the highest
Behold Jesus is born
Glory to God forever

Behold Jesus is born Glory to God forever


Lyrics:

The shepherds came to 
See the baby
Stood by his mother’s side
Here laid the Savior 
Inside a manger
Oh what a glorious night


Oh what a glorious night

I hear the angels singing halleluiah
Let the earth receive her king
I know that love has come 
Singing it out
Jesus Christ is born
Jesus Christ is born
Yeah

The shepherds wondered
They couldn’t hide it
Told everyone in sight
All were amazed
When they heard how 
God came down on the glorious night
God came down on this glorious night

I hear the angels singing halleluiah
Let the earth receive her king
I know that love has come 
Singing it out
Jesus Christ is born
Jesus Christ is born
Yeah

Glorious
Glorious
What a Glorious night Glorious
Glorious
What a Glorious night I hear the angels singing halleluiah
Let the earth receive her king
I know that love has come 
Singing it out


Jesus Christ is born I hear the angels singing halleluiah
Let the earth receive her king
I know that love has come 
Singing it out
Jesus Christ is born
I heard that Jesus Christ is born
Yeah Yeah Yeah

All is calm now
All is quiet
A Star shining in the sky
Below in Bethlehem
The king is sleeping
Oh What a Glorious Night
Oh What a Glorious Night

The Great Pumpkin Chase (2018)

The Great Pumpkin Chase (2018)

Hello everyone! About a month ago my youth group had our annual Great Pumpkin Chase!! You can look back to last year’s here. 🙂

This year was a little different. In the past years, I have been invited onto a team. But this year, 2 people did, but then it didn’t work out… 😛 So…my brother and I started a team. 

We had a small team, but it was a lot of fun! It was just me, Silas, our cousin, and one of my friends and my dad was our driver. 😀 

We did not do super good, not sure what placing we got…but it was still a great night. 🏆

DSCN8982-stamped

The final destination was the church, so that was funny. 😛 Once all the teams got there we had some time to hang out and eat. 

DSCN8983-stamped

Our snazzy team. 😎

DSCN8990-stamped

As a chance to win extra points, each team had about 15mins to think and plan a 1min lip sync…that was very fun to watch…we did a horrible job…some people thought we were funny though 😀 😀 

DSCN8992-stamped

“It’s a Whole New World”– Lip Sync.

DSCN9003-stamped

“Let it Go”- Lip Sync

DSCN9009-stamped

“I can make a man out of you”– Lip Sync

DSCN9014-stamped

“12 Days of Christmas”– Lip Sync 

DSCN9018-stamped

“I Love My Mom”– Lip Sync. This one was my favorite!! It was so random, funny, and well done. 😀 👏🏼

DSCN9021-stamped

Then after all the lip syncs. We had a mini-lesson, about the gospel. Which was very good. 👍🏼

DSCN9022-stamped

Next, we sang some lovely worship songs. ❤

DSCN9028-stamped

Then they announced the first, second, and third place winners! 🏅🥈🥉

DSCN9037-stamped

The winning team signing….The Great Pumpkin!! Congrats! 😀 


Even though we did not place, and we did badly at the lip sync…I still had a lot of fun, and cannot wait until next year! 🎉:D

♪ Song of the Week ♪

Sorry I have not posted lately, I finally have inspiration and ideas…but now I need time. 😛  I will be sharing two Christmas songs today 🎶🎄🎊

Lyrics:

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our savior
Was born on Christmas Day
To save us all from Satan’s pow’r
When we were gone astray
Oh tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
Oh tidings of comfort and joy

We’ll sing forever
We’ll sing of comfort and joy
We’ll sing forever
We’ll sing, we’ll sing

Fear not then, said the Angel
Let nothing you affright
This day is born a Savior
Of a pure Virgin bright
To free all those who trust in Him
From Satan’s pow’r and might
Oh tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
Oh tidings of comfort and joy

We’ll sing forever
We’ll sing of comfort and joy
We’ll sing forever
We’ll sing, we’ll sing

We’ll sing to our Savior
Sing to the Lord
We’ll sing to Jesus
Songs forever more

We’ll sing, we’ll sing

Lyrics:

Empty manger, perfect stranger, about to be born
Into darkness, sadness, desperate madness, creation so torn
We were so lost on earth, no peace, no worth, no way to escape
In fear, no faith, no hope, no grace, and no light
But that was the night before Christmas

Warm hay, cold sweat, a mother, not yet, praying Godspeed the dawn
She looks to her man, holding her hand, they wonder how long
And the shepherds, wise men come to find them and bow to a king
One star above shining on love, so bright it lit up the night before Christmas

And the world didn’t know mercy was meek and so mild
And the world didn’t know that truth was as pure as a child
The night before Christmas
The night before Christmas

And the world didn’t know, redemption was sweet and so strong
And the world didn’t know salvation was writing a song
The night before Christmas
The night before Christmas
The night before Christmas

Empty manger, perfect stranger, about to be born


How has your December been? What is your favorite Christmas song? 

Love Defined { Kristen Clark & Bethany Baird} PART TWO

Welcome back to part two! If you didn’t read part one, please do so now. 🙂 

LoveDefined

How to Be “Just Friends” with Guys:

“Don’t make your guy friendships all about the two of you. Do your best to keep your friendship focused on group settings. Work hard to incorporate others into the relationship'” 

“Don’t make the relationship deeply emotional and feelings oriented. Try to not share deeply from the heart in ways that would draw you two together in an unhealthy and emotional way. Save the deep emotional stuff for your girlfriends.”

“Evaluate your heart, motives, and actions, and make sure your goal is to honor Christ.”



Is It Okay to Date a Non-Christian?:

“Since dating should lead to marriage, it wouldn’t be wise to date a guy who isn’t a Christian”

“Obey God’s Word”

“Trust that His ways are better” 

“Place God first in your life” 


Qualities to Look For in a Future Husband:

“A husband’s job is to wash his wife in the water of the Word”

“He needs to have a solid relationship with Him”



What To Do When He Comes Calling:

  • Is this guy a genuine Christian?
  • Are we both mature enough to enter into a serious relationship?
  • Could u see myself potentially marring him?

“…Build an intentional friendship before you jump into romance.”

“Getting to know your guy’s heart is key.”

“Ask God for strength to embrace holiness and purity in your relationship. Pray. Pray. And then pray again.”


Romance without Regrets: 

3 Key things to pursue during the relationship process: 

  1. Worship 
  2. Purity 
  3. Holiness

“God’s plan for purity and holiness is a blessing because it keeps us on the right path.”

“A God-honoring relationship must be built on self-sacrificing love, not self-gratifying lust.”

3 Strategies for pursuing purity:

  1. Memorize scripture
  2. Establish boundaries 
  3. Seek accountability 

“…Pray diligently. Pray long and hard every day. Pray for your relationship. Pray for yourself. Pray for your guy. Pray for strength, wisdom, and conviction.”

“We serve a real and living God. He is the source of our strength and power.”


Ten Red Flags to Look For in a Relationship:

  1. He has a shallow relationship with God 
  2. He pulls you down spiritually 
  3. He’s stuck in habitual sin 
  4. He pressures you to compromise sexually 
  5. He’s rushing the relationship 
  6. Wise people in your life don’t support the relationship 
  7. He has very few spiritual convictions 
  8. He doesn’t keep his word 
  9. He wants to keep the relationship a secret 
  10. He’s obsessed with himself 

“Think of the type of man you hope to spend the rest of your life with.”

“Use wisdom and seek outside counsel from a wiser, older Christian.”


How Do I Know if He’s “the One”?:

“Rather than trying to find our perfect soul mate, we need to make wise decisions guided by the principles from God’s Word.”

Instead of asking “Is he the one?” ask yourself “Is he the one I want to commit the rest of my life to?” 

“The more we focus on Christ, the more our marriage thrives.”


What Married Women Want You to Know:

“When you, as a single woman, learn to take all your cares, fears, and concerns to the Lord Jesus Christ on a daily basis your heart will be strengthened.”

“Appreciation from a wife has the potential to inspire her man to become the leader God created him to be.”

“Homemaking is the art of making a house a home.”

“Choose to tap into the endless wisdom and counsel available to you from the godly women in your life.”


A Love Story Worth Fighting For:

“The more we’ve focused on God’s truth, the easier it has become to stand strong.”

“You job is to trust God and serve Him faithfully.”


That concludes my 2 part summary of Love Defined. I hope you enjoyed these two posts. 🙂 This book was a really good read. So many good tips and thoughts. In the back of the book, they have some lists of questions to ask both yourself and your boyfriend. 👍🏼

If you are a teenage girl I highly recommend this book, as well as Kristen and Bethany’s other books, YouTube, and blog.

  16. How Do I Know if He’s “the One”?
  17. What married Women Want You to Know 
  18. A Love Story Worth Fighting For 

Let’s break down this book chapter by chapter! ❤

Love, You Are Oh So Complicated:

Not much to say. It is only a few pages, more of an intro. 🙂


Seeing through the Fairy Tale Facade: 

“The Fairy Tale Facade is like a beautiful false front…The exterior looks great, but behind the false front is nothing more than a wreck” 

“The Fairy Tale Facade promotes the idea that we can completely ignore God’s design for love, sex, and romance, and still have lasting, satisfying results”


The Merry-Go-Round Method for Modern Relationships:

“The primary goal of the Merry-Go-Roud Method is rooted in and fueled by a desire to please self”

This chapter talked about how we as girls join the Merry-Go-Round Method. It is all only to bring attention to yourself, and it’s not real love. When Mr. A disappoints us, we cry then move on to Mr. B…and it just keeps going, like a Merry-Go-Round.


From Little-Girl Crushes to Big-Girl Relationships:

“God wants to teach you powerful truths from His Word”

This chapter told about Kristen’s and Bethany’s crushes. And what they learned from those relationships.


Getting To The Heart of Love, Marriage, and Sex:

“God’s perfect Word contains more wisdom than every chick flick and romance novel combined”

“Marriage. A magnificent institution created by God Himself”

“God intentionally created the act of sex to be powerful and bounding in marriage”

“Embracing God’s plan for marriage, and sex will radically change your life”

This chapter talked about a lot of really good stuff, but definitely for an older teenage girl. 😉 


Taking Femininity Into Your Own Love Life:

Four ways to bring femininity into your love life: 

  1.  Let him initiate 
  2. Encourage Godly Leadership 
  3. Promote purity
  4. Point him to Christ 

“Let us use femininity to promote purity in the lives of the men around us”

“Don’t initiate and pursue out of fear of losing the guy”


God’s Timeless Method for Lasting Relationships:

“Glorifying God should be the goal for every stage of the relationship process”

Use God’s Timeless Method Vs. the Merry-Go-Round Method

The goal of God’s Timeless Method= Glorifying God.

Step 1: Cultivate the right heart

Step 2: Choose to seek wisdom 

Step 3: Concentrate on God’s truth 

Step 4: Count on Christ to satisfy you 

Step 5: Continue to trust God if it ends 

“Instead of being on the hunt for Mr.Right, we need to be in the Word, becoming Miss Right”

“We must center our feelings on God’s truth, to see clearly”


When Your Heart’s Desire Is Unfulfilled:

“If our trust in Christ is secure, our worries and concerns about getting married will quickly fade into the background.”

” True joy can only be found in the Lord”

“Trusting God is one of the simplest but most difficult concepts to actually live out.”


Five Strategies for Thriving as a Single Girl:

Live all out for Christ 

Intentionally grow in Godliness

Look for opportunities to serve 

Embrace the unique aspects of this season

Expand your community beyond only singles 

“Get outside of your normal friend groups and experience the benefits offered by those in different seasons”


Okay, this post is already 600 words…so I just decided to make this a two-parter. 🙂 I will cover the rest of this amazing book in part two!!

♪ Song of the Week ♪

How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? Mine was good. 😀 Sorry that I have not been posting too much. Have not had a ton of inspiration, and time. But I am feeling more motivated now, so hopefully, I will be posting more soon. 🙂 

I can not belive it is 28 days until Christmas! This post will be a normal song, then next week I will start doing Christmas music 🎶🎄

Lyrics:

It’s a momma singing songs about the Lord
It’s a daddy spending family time 
That the world said he cannot afford
These simple moments change the world
It’s a pastor at a tiny little Church
Forty years of loving on the broken and the hurt
These simple moments change the world

Dream small
Don’t bother like you’ve gotta do it all
Just let Jesus use you where you are
One day at a time Live well
Loving God and others as yourself
Find little ways where only you can help


With His great love
A tiny rock can make a giant fall
Dream smallIt’s visiting the widow down the street
Or dancing on a Friday with your friend with special needs
These simple moments change the world
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with bigger dreams
Just don’t miss the minutes on your way, your bigger things, no
‘Cause these simple moments change the world

So dream small
Don’t bother like you’ve gotta do it all
Just let Jesus use you where you are
One day at a time Live well
Loving God and others as yourself
Find little ways where only you can help


With His great love
A tiny rock can make a giant fall
So dream small Keep loving, keep serving
Keep listening, keep learning
Keep praying, keep hoping
Keep seeking, keep searching

Out of these small things and watch them grow bigger
The God who does all things makes oceans from river So dream small
Don’t bother like you’ve gotta do it all
Just let Jesus use you where you are
One day at a time Live well


Loving God and others as yourself
Find little ways where only you can help
With His great love
A tiny rock can make a giant fall
Yeah, five loaves and two fish’s could feed them all
So dream small
Dream small


♪ Song of the Week ♪

Happy Thanksgiving US readers! Today I am going to share a few Thanksgiving realated songs to celebrate. 😀 

Lyrics: [Verse 1]This is the day That you have made Whatever comes I won’t complain For all my hope Is in your name And now your joy Awaits my praise[Chorus]I give thanks for all you have done And I will sing of your mercy and your love Your love is unfailing Lord, I am grateful[Verse 2]When I was down You brought me out You set my feet On higher ground So here I stand You are my God Your faithfulness My Solid Rock[Chorus 2]I give thanks for all you have done And I will sing of your mercy and your love Your love is unfailing Lord, I am grateful I give thanks, for all you have done I won’t forget all the battles you have won Your love is unfailing Lord, I am grateful[Bridge]And as we lift our hands up The heavens open, heavens open So let our lives declare The love our God has Spoken over us

Listen to it to hear the lyrics 😛

Mama always said to me the very best medicine is gratitude It’s not what you don’t have, but what you do I must admit that I forget that life’s a gift Hey mama, gonna change my attitude 1, 2, 3, 4 Count my blessings
1, 2, 3, 4 Count my blessings If you got a lot or a lotta nothing Go ahead and thank God for something You’re gonna see the good if you’re good at looking So go ahead and thank God for something We have a lot or have a little it’s really nothing new Happiness should never be a slave to revenue We got a breakdown need a way out living unbound
When we start singing out a new tune 1, 2, 3, 4 Count my blessings 1, 2, 3, 4 Count my blessings If you got a lot or a lotta nothing Go ahead and thank God for something you’re gonna see the good if you’re good at looking
So go ahead and thank God for something In the wonder, in the heartache In the good times and the mistakes No matter what I am going through I can always say thank you When the blessings are in disguise Let gratitude open my eyes Cause I’ve just been given too much To do anything but: 1, 2, 3, 4 Count my blessings 1, 2, 3, 4 Count my blessings If you got a lot or a lotta nothing Go ahead and thank God for something You’re gonna see the good if you’re good at looking So go ahead and thank God for something If you got a lot or a lotta nothing Go ahead and thank God for something You’re gonna see the good if you’re good at looking So go ahead and thank God for something

There’s still plenty of leaves Golden on the trees Hoodies, blue jeans and football Bonfires and school nights Scarecrows and hayrides It’s fall everywhere except the mallI don’t want to hear about Santa Claus coming No silver bells or a dozen drummers drumming I don’t want to see an inflatable nothing Till the day after Thanksgiving(And not a day early)Don’t plug in those electric candles Or dangle those stockings from the living room mantle Those tangled up lights are more than I can handle Till the day after Thanksgiving Then, oh, let it snow Go and tell everyone you know That Christmas is here Every day between now and new year Don’t deck the halls with the tinsel or the holly You can make me grumpy but you can’t make me jolly Elves don’t even make curly-head dollies Till the day after Thanksgiving Then, oh, let it snow Christmas card, everyone you know Then pour on the cheer Every day between now and new year I want the cookies and the mistletoe kissing Angel on top of a tall tree glisten Wrap it all up in a pretty red ribbon The day after Thanksgiving(You can put antlers on your car for all I care)As long as it’s the day after Thanksgiving

How are you all this week? Any fun plans? 🙂 

Lyrics:

Never wanna feel like I did back then sitting on the floor as the walls closed in running out of breath, suffocating Get me out Get me out

Oh, giving up was making a mess of me It took me falling down to get on my feet running out of hope, you made me believe me now In me now found my faith dancing through fire By the grace of God, I’m a survivor voices telling me quit, they’re only liars Only liars

Hold on When the rope you’ve been holding is down to a thread hold on To the air in your lungs when you’ve got nothing left And when your legs start to stumble

Run to the light in the tunnel The victory’s worth all the struggle So hold on Never thought I’d get to a silver lining Now I’m waking up to a sun that’s shining We all got something inside that’s worth Fighting for Fighting for

LYRICS:

 

I want you to dream and I want you to know those dreams will could true and there isn’t anybody or anything that can stop you child of God doesn’t mean doubter

you were created for more than to live like a coward you can do anything through Gods power so stand up man and just  keep walking the lions don’t converse with dogs who keep talking so don’t let naysayers hold you back and if you were told you can then forget whoever told you that

and if you bought the lies of Satan then it’s your fault that he sold you that its time for a refund you better go get your faith back I remember when people used to tell me that I couldn’t weigh back and I can’t remember the last time I heard somebody say that

they stopped doubting me when I refused to listen I wouldn’t let anybody throw me off mission so to that one kid i need you to listen start today man be different be strong the world cant understand the waters you’re walking on  it takes a fighter to make it so dream forever dreams and drown out the liars who hate it they want to make you believe you’re average don’t ever think that and when the world knocks you down get back up and swing back brush the dust off your boots and knuckle up

consider this pottery a subtle nudge sitting on the couch you’re just collecting dust as children of God laziness should never be affecting us but so many people are wasting away catching rust so let the change rest with us

We Will Not Budge

How can I inspire you to dream and to read that verse and that tells me I can do all things it seems

sometimes I lose track of that and just rely on me but the only way I make it work is when I am on my knees don’t give up ya gotta believe you could be the change that the whole world needs

let me get an okay when I obey the door is open to receive I was bent down in my shackles wanting for the penalty he broke the chains opened up the gates and set the captive free and gave me eyes so I could see gave me breath so I could breathe

only way to make a dream live  is in living for the King you say give up everything you got and get up and follow me cuz the only way to truth is light is everything we need I’m a shoehop for the  sky and give me all that I can be cuz the pump inside my heart thats the core inside of me

finally I see the light come alive when you believe we are stars in the night shining bright through trees we just gotta live for love He goes up when I decrease rise above all the noise and effects society I was drinking up the lies  He was my superiority but my wings wouldn’t work and their up and flying free cuz He came and fixed me up gave me something to achieve

I believe the deity that’s the key

Lyrics

 

You’ve hit the ground on the rocks of life you’ve felt alone with all this pain inside reach out and take my hand don’t you know that you may fall you may break you may feel the whole world shake but I stay here holding tight get your wrong it will be alright 
Everybody falls sometimes everybody falls sometimes everybody falls sometimes
We’ve all been here before face down in the dirt every fall I’ve had and every time ive heard haven’t you been there for me let me be there for you may fall and you may break you may feel the whole world shake but I stay here holding tight get your wrong it will be alright 
Everybody falls sometimes everybody falls sometimes everybody falls sometimes
You’ve been there for me I’ll be there for you you’ve been there for me I’ll be there for you you’ve been there for me and I will be there for you may fall you may break you may feel the whole world shake but I stay here holding tight get your wrongs it will be alright you may fall you may break you may feel the whole world shake and I stay here holding tight get your wrong it will be alright 
Everybody falls sometimes everybody falls sometimes everybody falls sometimes
