The High King Lives

Hear the Writer Roar! Tuesday: Kiss of Grace June 18, 2013

Hello dear ones. I thought I’d share another poem today. Watch out…I may get in a habit of this lol. Again please don’t copy but you can give the link. I wrote this years ago during a hard time in my life. I know it’s hard for people to hear that Christians and those with good families can also deal with bad depression. But I know that Jesus has gotten me through some doozies and that I am completely weak without him. So I guess this is me boasting in my weakness. I’m going through a hard time right now with an ill family member. So please keep my family in your prayers. God has always got me through in the past (even when I couldn’t lift my head) so I know he will get me through now. That doesn’t mean there won’t be pain and sorrow. I just look to His arms to hold me and my loved ones. Anywho, here is my poem.

Praying in the Rain

Kiss of Grace

Come on. I need a rider on a white horse,

I’m dying in this hell.

Everyday it gets harder to be strong,

I don’t wanna fail.

But I bleed inside,

please kiss away my pain.

I’m ready to fall off the edge,

I’m begging for the rain.

I wonder if I scream will anyone hear?

If I cut myself will they see my fear?

I’m so desperate,

but I have a life to live.

I have a family,

I have such beauty to give.

Jesus, I can’t hide and I can’t escape,

so I give you my all.

You have to rescue my heart,

God, please don’t let me fall.

I’m struggling,

struggling just to stand.

I’m drowning in weakness,

please hold my hand.

God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover

 

Inspirational Wednesday: Who Are We Living For? May 22, 2013

1 Corinthians 10:31 31 So then, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you may do, do all for the honor {and} glory of God.”

Hello beloved, I’ll be honest I’m struggling. Yesterday I wanted to throw up my hands. I literally thought, “Why do I keep doing all this when I meet resistance at every turn?” I’m not getting any gold stars and I’m not seeing much progress. What is the point? My emotions can be intense. I have to abide in God’s word daily to be a nice person. When I’m having a break down I know I need some high intensity abiding time…thirty minutes…an hour…will not do it. I’ve got to soak up God’s word and spend lots of time in worship or this ship will sink.

During some high intensity alone time with Jesus I heard this song by Steven Curtis Chapman. The video is below. Email sub. please come to my blog to see the link. The song is called “Do Everything”. It is a reminder of the verses that tell us to do everything for God. I really needed this. I love it when my Heavenly Father loves on me like this. Maybe I won’t see progress in this world or maybe I will but I’m not doing this life for other people or even myself. I’m living for Jesus and my reward is in Heaven. I don’t know what all the rewards are but I do know the greatest reward is Jesus himself.

Colossians 3:17 17 And whatever you do +[no matter what it is+] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus {and} in +[dependence upon+] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him.”

So when you get like me and just want to quit, remember these verses and who you’re living for. Jesus Christ gave everything for us & we were created by Him. If anyone deserves allegiance it is Him. I will live for the King of Kings. The High King is my Lord!

Do Everything~ Steven Curtis Chapman

Well, I thought I’d do a post on idols because I’m doing this study by Kelly Minter called “No Other gods” but it’s not ready yet. Maybe soon…

God bless & remember the High King lives and He loves you!
