take a look around

in the still of the night

in the quiet of the storm

take a look around…

and tell yourself that nothing will ever bring you down

again.

something big is happening

can you feel it

things will never be the same

again.

this is life

this love

this is the moment.

this is life

this love

and here you are.

this is life

this is love

keeps you going in the dark

from the very first time you feel

the touch

the sound

the spark.

this is life.

hugs n’ blessings for all those taking a look around.

So You catch me when I fall, right?
And You hear me when I call cryin’
And You fix me when I’m broke, right?
And that’s all I need to know.
So the storm is gonna break right?
And the sun is gonna start shining
And everything is gonna go right
And that’s all I need to know.


But what if You know something I don’t?
What if You will something I won’t?
If You don’t give me what I want
But You give me what I need
Is that enough to…

Believe, believe, believe, believe in Your love?
Will I still
Believe, believe, believe, believe in Your love?

with heaven in view

“One of the characteristics of the Christian is inward joy. Even under difficult circumstances, there will be a joyful heart and a radiant face. Unfortunately, many Christians go around with droopy faces that give no outshining glory to God. A true Christian should be relaxed and radiant, capable of illuminating and not depressing his surrounding.

I have found in my travels that those who keep Heaven in view remain serene and cheerful on the darkest day. In all ages people have found it possible to maintain the spirit of joy in the hour of trial.

There are times when I feel I don’t have joy, and I get on my knees and say, “Lord, where is the fruit of the Spirit of joy in my life?” I find that the joy is there down deep – it is a deep river.

Whatever the circumstance, there IS a river of JOY!”

Billy Graham

What really is joy?

What are the times in which you have experienced real joy?

Are joy and happiness the same thing?

hugs n’ blessings for JOY LIVED OUT LOUD!
