To Know That You’re Alive!

Alive!These words ring so true for me lately. Adrift in a sea of wandering and wondering what is real. So many questions haunt my mind and it is often the pain that reminds me I am still alive and it is not over yet. 
The pain has a purpose and grief is the happiness you experienced before. Depression is just a passing feeling and wounds heal turning to scars that serve to remind you where you’ve been and how far you’ve come. For you were meant for so much more than just ordinary!

You’re Not A Ghost

Safety” by Fireflight from the album Innova featuring  Stephen Christian

   

All alone, alone you float
Can anybody see you
You’re a ghost
Do they know the pain you hide
Do they know the pain you hide
Cry for help, reaching out
Can anybody hear you when you shout
Are you hidden from their eyes
Are you hidden from their eyes
I see you

In the light, in the dark
I will be your bleeding heart
Cause when you need me
I’ll be your safety
I’ll be your safety
Like a fire, running wild
Can’t contain what’s deep inside
Ready to break free
I’ll be your safety
I’ll be your safety

Do you ever feel alone, like you’re a ghost? The enemy would have you believe that but it is not true. You are loved and you are not alone. Reach out to someone and if you have no one, reach out to me and I will do my best to be your safety. God bless! ~M

You Are the One

1435692979783Reminiscing with ‘Stereotype Be’ while awaiting the release of ‘Broken Temples Deluxe’, both albums by Kevin Max. The above lyrics are from a hidden song, You Are the One (full lyrics below), which appears on the ‘Stereotype Be’ album after the last song, I Went Over the Edge of the World. This is the only audio of the song I could find.

I ran into your arms like Moses parted water
I ran into your arms like an angel to the father
I ran into your arms like a soul that has departed & you rescued me…

I fell down like the stars, you pick me up so tenderly
And I fell down like the stars, my wings made of clay
And I fell down like the stars, you hold up so all can see
And you rescued me, oh yes

You, You are the One
You are the One, the only One
‘Cause You are,
You, You are the One
You are the One, You are my God

I stumble like a blind man
Destined to this earth I stray
I stumble like a blind man
No redemption
I stumble like a blind man
With eyes blacked out & a mouth of sand
And you rescued me, oh come on

You, You are the One
You are the One, You are my God
‘Cause You are,
You, You are the One
You are the One, the only One

‘Cause you are,
You are the sky that holds the rain
You are my greater stave
You are the drugs that kill the pain
You are everything, the teacher

I stand before your altar,
Falling strain of Abram’s son
I stand before your altar,
Like a lamb lead to the slaughter

You, You are the One
You are the One, the Only One
‘Cause You are
You, You are the One
You are the One, the only One
And You are
You, You are the One
You are the One
You are my God
And you are
You, You are the One
You are the One, the only One
‘Cause You are

You wanna call me when I’m wondering with doubt
You wanna call and tell me everything’s alright
I know it’s you and you see everything in me
I know it’s you, It’s you

You are the sky that holds the rain
You are my greater stave
You are the drugs that kill my pain
You are everything, the teacher

You are the sky that holds the rain
You are my greater stave
You are the drugs that kill the pain

This song gives me comfort and inspiration, reminding me of God’s infinite love for each of us, even in our darkness and weakness. Thanks Kevin!
