I walk through the winter snow, fear follows and leaves tracks behind me as I go. Oh I'm blue today, can't you tell by this sad serenade? Oh honey, the mess I've made won't go away on the first light of a warm summers day. Even If I smile you'd be smart to see through this phony charade, call my bluff, and pull the plug on this parade. But somehow...

Fear is the catalyst in the darkest hours of the night, to make me run towards your love and surrender this fight. Fear is the catalyst that finally gets me to move out of the cold of my broken soul into the warm arms of you.

I feel the cold, does that mean I'm still alive? The shock of the ice quickens my pulse and is painful inside. Like a car spun out of control, I'm wrecked right into a telephone pole. Oh you know I've chased a thousand white rabbits down a million black empty holes. But something in me is starting to change. Melting a frozen heart happens at a slow pace.

{Repeat Chorus}

How do we tread through the murky waters of our fears? Why are afraid that if we do you won't be there? Guess we're all afraid in some way. Afraid to grow numb to your touch, blind to
miracles, and too frozen to budge. Will you send love to melt us?

{Repeat Chorus 2x}

Inspiring Quote ~ Sharing The Gifts God's Given You

"I challenge you, as I challenge myself, to let your God given creativity surface. The world needs you. The church needs you. We need your ideas, your insights, your colors, Your contribution. What you are passionate about was created in you to make a splash in this life that no one else can make. Make it now." - Nicole Johnson

I love this quote! It's such a great reminder that God has given us each something special to share with the world. Something we are meant to share. Something that other people need us to share. I know I have been affected and changed for the better by so many people's beautiful gifts. I hope and pray that God would use me that way as well. It's amazing to know that He didn't skip over anyone, He placed those gifts and abilities in all of us, before we were even born. We all have a God given purpose. Don't be afraid to live it.

For so long I have been afraid to live it. I have been afraid to share what God has given me, for fear that it didn't matter, for fear that it wasn't good enough, or important enough. But God didn't place those things inside of me for no reason, He put them inside of me to share with others. So whatever your contribution is, don't be afraid to make it today. God put it inside of you because He knew that we would need what you have to share.

Find Me In The Midnight

Find me in the midnight, in the inviting glow of your moonlight. In the middle of my chaotic life I stop to hear your calming moonlit lullaby. I'll learn to live like your stars, surrendering my fight to burn with your love tonight. Like a gleam of grace in the dark sky, I'm starting to see your fingers trace. Find me in the midnight of your embrace.

Find me in the morning light, breathing in your redeeming sunlight. Vibrant and brand new, radiant, and on fire with redemption's tune. Even the birds sing joyful songs to you. Find me in the morning sky, fully alive, and joining in their tune.

Find me in the day, find me in the night. Find me in the place where joy and pain meet and collide. Find me in the depths, find me on heaven's very breath. Where death and everlasting life connect. Where life battles death, and dark battles light. Where death may find a victory if only for a night. Find me where heaven and humanity intersect. Where new life blossoms and resurrects. Find me in your divine romance, where your angels rejoice and dance.

Bird On A Wire

The roads grow dark and cold when no one passes by. Can't remember the last time I saw a glimmer of hope in someone's eye. When love flys south for the winter we forget what we vowed to remember, He said "I will never leave or forsake you." But if that's really true why is fear competing with you? Here I am asking to be rescued from this lonely pavement tonight. Do wounded wings take flight?


Don't leave me here like a bird on a wire. Stranded and abandoned, left watching the world go by. No participation below, when you look down the fear just grows. Asleep above the motion, despondent to signs of life. When will the bird on this wire fly?

Being alive means being awake to your love. But when apathy captures your heart you just feel stuck. Somewhere between living a lie and living authenticly. You think you're alone in the shadows but someone's running after you. A love you're not used to is chasing after you.

(Repeat Chorus)

I wanna take your hand, find life in your eyes. Dance in the glowing embers of this night. Forget what it's like to be alone. Awaken to the memory of being fully known. Created new and created whole. Ready to fly as you free my soul.

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
