Austin French

  This Christen singer is definitely underrated. I haven't heard many of his songs, and one of my favorites, Freedom Hymn is by him. And I just figured that out. So here are a few great songs by him!  Sorry for the short post, I'm trying to schedule some before I leave;)


                                   Why God

(For some reason, I couldn't get the Official Music
Video on here, so just look it up. I encourage you
To watch that instead, to feel the full effect of the 
Emotions. If you can't find it, this'll work too)
                                          



                                   Wake Up Sleeper


                                   Freedom Hymn                                        


That's all I had time to find;) It's 10:00 pm right now, and I have to get up early(still Sunday) So hopefully you enjoyed these!

Of all the songs, which was your favorite? Have you ever heard of Austin French? Would you enjoy more posts that feature a Christian artist?

A Song to Share

Scars by TobyMac

Lyrics:
No, no
Yeah I'm
Just beepin' right now
I gotta go
Hey
Had you on my mind
Had a little time
Know we kinda overdue 
Turnin' back the pages
To our younger days, yeah
I can still imagine you 
Boomin' like a thunder
Chasin' life with wonder
With fire that could light a room
Bottom kinda fell out
Waited for the rebound
But you never made a move
When life cuts so deep
Try and remember
You are not alone
We've all been there 
Scars come with livin'
You are not alone
We've all been there (been there, been there, oh), oh
So lift your head, lift your head
Lift your head to where your help comes from
Yeah, you, you're not alone
We've all been there
Scars come with livin' 
Life ain't got no sequel
We all broken people
The only road to found is lost 
Oversimplifyin' 
Ain't no shame in tryin' 
Passion never counts the cost 
Now you won't take my phone calls
You won't text me back at all
I just wanna see you
I can't stand to see you gone
Yesterday I missed you
Yesterday I played your song
I'm oversimplifyin', I'm oversimplifyin'
But try and remember
You are not alone
We've all been there 
Scars come with livin'
You are not alone
We've all been there (been there, been there, oh), oh
So lift your head, lift your head
Lift your head to where your help comes from
Yeah, you, you're not alone
We've all been there
Scars come with livin' 
(Scars come, scars come, oh, scars come
Oh, scars come with livin'
Scars come, scars come, oh, scars come
Oh, scars come with livin')
It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars 
It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars 
It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars 
It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars 
You, you're not alone
We've all been there
Scars come with livin'
You, you're not alone, you're not alone
So lift your head up 
To where your help comes from
Lift your head up 
Oh, scars come with livin'
Lift your head up 
To where your help comes from
Lift your head up 
Oh, scars come with livin', (lift your head up)
It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars
It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars 
It doesn't matter who you are 
This world gon' leave some battle scars


It's so true. Scars do come with living. When we live solely for Jesus, we will be persecuted for our faith. Burt hey, God will always be there to guide you and help you, no matter what. 
Like the song says, you aren't alone, we've all had hurts in our lives. If any one of you needs prayer or just to talk, please don't hesitate to comment, and me and the rest 'o the gang will be there for you!
Love y'all!!

Chosen For a Purpose

  Do you ever feel like what you are doing for the kingdom of God isn't enough? Or maybe haven't been chosen for what you're supposed to serve for? Well, you just may have not been led to what you are meant to do. Even in small tasks, God has specifically chosen YOU. I guess to make that a little clearer, I'll tell you my own story.

   The past few months, I haven't felt like I was doing enough. Although COVID did prevent me from serving at a nursing home, I still felt like I needed to do more. But I must say, the break during the quarantine was nice. Online school or not, it was nice...at least for a few days.
    So anywho, before I get off topic, I'll continue. About a week ago, one of the members of our church asked us if we could take care of one of the elderly women that attends there. And it was that simple...Jesus chooses us for a job, the perfect one. Me and my mom will get to take care of Lucille 5 days a week in the mornings for the month of August. Just like that, an opportunity to give back for all the blessings in our lives, falls right into our laps.

    Another way we can be chosen for a purpose is with our giftings(another post) When we become Christians, we get a special gift. We can use this gift to witness, serve, and glorify God.

    So next time you feel like you're not doing enough, just ask God to lead you to the right type of service. He'll guide you every step of the way.

     That's all! Sorry this post was so short, I thought I'd have more ideas on what to write for this topic, but I guess not. Anyway, hopefully you liked it(despite the length) and I can try to explain something better if you ask me in the comments. Sometimes I'm not very clear;)

Update

Ok, so I am going up north on Monday. The Internet isn't great, and I may not have time to post, but I'll try my best. I'll see if I can put together a post before then:)
So if I don't post, I'm sorry! Have a great week!!!

Called

                                        Have you heard that whisper in the wind?
                                       The leaves rustle, telling one of God's special secrets
                                       Giggling, the animals talk amongst themselves 
                                       The streams trinkle through the woods
                                       The wild rivers with their raging waterfalls cut through the mountains 
                                       The serene lakes peacefully lap at the shore
                                       They all want you to know that you my love
                                       You are Called
                                       You are chosen for a purpose 
                                       You have a gifting that is special to you
                                       You are predestined for God's love
                                       You are his Child
                                       Listen! Hear what he is saying
                                       Jesus has Called you

Behind The Blogger Tag

    This tag is a little bit different compared to other tags that I've done. It looks real interesting! So, without further ado *steps back and reveals the tag* here you are!

Rules:

1) Thank the person who nominated you
Thank you Caleigh

2) Answer the questions

3)Pingback to the creator: Ellyn

4)Nominate 5+ bloggers

Why did you start blogging, and why have you kept blogging?

I started blogging because I wanted to encourage others, and provide a safe place to read, or talk. I've kept blogging for the same reason!

What is your type of blog post to write?

Probably A Song to Share. I feel like so much can be spoken through music that I may not be able t
come up with on my own. I'd much rather expand off of an idea, then scatter my own into a blog post.

What are your top 3 favorite blog posts?

Hmm...probably How He Loves UsProverbs 6, and My Favorite Things Tag

What are some of your favorite things to do to relax?

My favorite things to do to relax? That is a loooong list. I'll try to shorten it. I love reading...especially a good mystery or romance book. It just takes me into another world, and I can forget about everything else. I like to look for agates on the north shore on vacation, or go to the lake. I also like doing crafts like coloring with brush markers, sketching, or making jewelry. Oh! And I like to eat. Very relaxing.

What are three of your favorite things?

Ice cream *licks lips*, my kitty Henry, and hmm...the lake 

What are your favorite blogging moments?

When someone says when they are encouraged about something I blogged about and when I can really connect to all my online friends;)

What are your hobbies outside of blogging?
Making jewelry, hanging out with my youth group, doing other crafts, and most importantly, trying to share Jesus.

Describe your personality in 3 words.

Joyful, caring, and spunky:)

What are your top 3 pet peeves?

People chewing loudly, a fork scraping  against teeth or on a plate, and when I say something, and no one notices.

What is something that your followers don't know about you?

That I love strawberries XD 🍓

Ok, I'm gonna tag...

Caitlyn

Liberty

Brooklyne

Beth

Jemima

This was SOOO fun!!! Thanks for reading!
