Does Anybody Hear Her by Casting Crowns

I am a new Casting Crowns lover. So all week I've been listening to them. I love their music :-)

She is running
A hundred miles an hour in the wrong direction
She is trying
But the canyon's ever widening
In the depths of her cold heart
So she sets out on another misadventure just to find
She's another two years older
And she's three more steps behind

Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even knows she's going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that's tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?

She is yearning
For shelter and affection
That she never found at home
She is searching
For a hero to ride in
To ride in and save the day
And in walks her prince charming
And he knows just what to say
Momentary lapse of reason
And she gives herself away

If judgement looms under every steeple
If lofty glances from lofty people
Can't see past her scarlet letter
And we never even met her

He is running
A hundred miles an hour in the wrong direction

Create a Character

Brittney Johnson is doing a link up at Daughter of the King. I am super excited to be participating in this. I hope you join too. :-)
Name: Sierra Rose
Age: 16
Lives: Woodland, Fergus Falls, MN
Loves: A great adventure
About: Sierra Rose lives with her grandparents in a cabin, in the middle of no where. Her favorite pass time is running through the woods at sundown. (It's very boring where she is) What she finds there is usually the same, until the night of her sixteenth birthday. She went out into the woods and never came back. Never say never though. What she finds in the woods on that dark and lonely night, is something no one would ever believe possible. She wakes up on a re-peat of that same day. And like nothing ever happened, her grandparents greet her with another breakfast in bed. Confused, she goes along with the day, except this time, she bumps her head on a rock on the way back out of the forest, and wakes up with dwarfs looking things drooling down above her. Is this all a dream? What happened while she was sleeping? She is more confused now than ever.

By the way, my character does not actually have dread locks like the photo shows.

God Bless, Amy
P.S. If this book gets finished, it would possibly be called Freedom Calling.

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us and eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, and what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

Calling All Girls

Hey girls!
 I know some of you may be saying to yourself that your not special. That you need this or that to be good enough, but you don't. Watch this video here. It is encouraging, and it might help you!

God Bless, Amy
Check out my new blog here.

The Moment You've all Been Waiting Very Patiently For...

Is soon to come. I need to make a few changes in the video, but it will be up very soon. I promise. :-)  I am very sorry for the long wait, but it's totally worth it! I can't wait for you to see it.  :-)

God Bless,

Raindrops on a Sunny Day

The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: "Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done. As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease." Genesis 8:21-22
Day after day I'm more confused. Looking back at my life and wondering "Why did that ever happen?" And yet, I have no answer. Is that because there is no reason? Of course there is a reason. God has a reason for everything, even if you don't understand it now, you will soon. I have to keep reminding myself of that too. There is a reason for everything. Maybe if I set a reminder for it to go off every ten minutes I'll remember. But of course, I never read the reminders I set on my IPod. So that won't work.
Speaking of reminders, remember the bible story about Noah? He built the ark at God's command. He got funny faces from his neighbors, but boy did he show them. The rain came, and the waters were rising quickly. The rain lasted for about forty days. And 150 days after that (forgive me if I'm wrong), but with no rain. Soon the dry land came into view and they then unpacked the ark. God came to them and promised He will never flood the entire earth again. And as a reminder He gave us the rainbow.
How great is that, right? Well, when the rainbow comes after the rain, do you remember? Not usually. Make it a goal to remember to thank God every time you see a rainbow. That is how I start a habit.
So maybe that's how I can remember that there is a reason for everything. I am going to try to make it a habit, when I look out the window, and see the seasons changing, I am going to remember reason. Because reason and season rhyme. It may not work because I look out the window a lot, but it's worth a shot. After all, I wouldn't mind remembering there is a reason for everything all the time. :-) Try it with me. Then you can comment and tell me how it went for you, also comment and tell me if you made a habit of remembering something, just by looking at something. Maybe I can try things your way too.
"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith..."

Always be Thankful for This Day

 Our day has suddenly gone astray,
Nothing is the way we plan,
First the tears then the years,
Suddenly seem lost in the sea of forgetfulness.

The day we realize life does not go acording to plan,
wake me up, for I have ran,
Straight into our Fathers hands,
For life only goes acording to His great plan.

Even though that may not seem fair,
His plan is way better than theirs,
He will never forget the sight,
Of our unending fight,
With the devil who seems so sure,
I asure you, there is no cure.

The Lord gives and takes away,
just be greatful for this day,
and soon for His glorious way.

Holy by Nichole Nordeman

How many roads did I travel before I walked down the one that led me to You?
How many dreams did unravel Before I believed in a hope that was true?
How long? How far?
What was meant to fulfill only emptied me still
And all you ever wanted...

Only me on my knees
Singing holy, holy
And somehow all that matters now is
You are Holy, Holy

How many deaths did I die before I was awakened to new life again?
How many half-truths did I bear witness to, til the proof was disproved in the end?
How long? How far?
What was meant to illuminate, shadowed me still
And all you ever wanted......

Only me on my knees
Singing holy, holy
And somehow all that matters now is
You are Holy, Holy

and all I have is gratitude to offer You. . .

Only me on my knees
Singing holy, holy
And somehow all that matters now is
You are Holy, Holy
