Oldie but Goodie


I got in the car this morning and wanted to some good tunes. Not groovin tunes, but some good therapy tunes. So i opened up my cd case and the first cd was Ginny Owens. It was a really old cd, but I took my chances anyways. Alot of the songs I had forgotten or didnt know how I could have listened to in the first place. My fingers almost pressed next, but then this song came on. I know the Lord let me listen for a reason....

Who are you Listening to?
by Ginny Owens

This is your life yet somehow they decide what you’re about
You learn your lines and take your cues, but who are you listening to
You change your clothes and how you speak and place your hope
in what they think. Before you know, there’s no more you,

Who are you listening to, Have you noticed how much ya fear
All those voices you choose to hear, Who are you listening to
Who tells you what to do, Who rules your thoughts at night
And whose rules define your life

Oh, ya know it’s up to you, So who are you listening to
Who are you listening to

This is your life you have no choice, You will rely on someone’s voice
And it’s alright to question who, Who are you listening to

Do the words that you believe, set your soul and spirit free

Who are you listening to, Who tells you what to do
Who rules your thoughts at night, Whose rules define your life

Oh, ya know it’s up to you, So, who are ya listening to
Who are you listening to

There’s a quiet voice whispering in your heart, It’s been there all along,
It believes in you, it will tell the truth, Can’t you hear it call

Who rules your thoughts at night, Whose rules define your life
Oh,ya know it’s up to you, So, who are you listening to
Who are you listening to, Are you listening?????

(to listen..please turn off playlist at the bottom)

Get back up

When sin creeps in and knocks you down...
you get back up.
"They will fight against you but will not overcome you,
for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the LORD." Jeremiah 1:19
It feels good to feel strong. To feel confident that the Lord is refining the  struggle that continues to break you down. 
It feels good. It feels happy.
I feel blessed.
But its at that very moment that Satan thrives on attack.
Keep your head held high, your shoulders lifted.
And when it starts to happen, and you feel your joy start to dwindle...
get back up. Resight this passage and know that
 He his your warrior when satan tries to attack.
"The LORD will march out like a mighty man, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies." Isaiah 42:13
  I am a work in progress. And I know God is still molding me and reteaching me from what I've known for so long. Refining a struggle takes time. I will be changed. I will overcome this.
 
So I encourage you, when satan continues to creep in and steel your joy, your hope, your courage...dont give up the fight!!You will overcome this. Whatever your struggle is. Whatever your fight. Whatever is too heavy for you. Lay it down. Break the chains and let God take on this burden.
God will prevail!
