extreme tired…ness… February 19, 2007

Filed under: other — beyondtheoutside @ 12:49 PM

Ugh,
I’ve been so tired lately. Idk. It’s kinda weird. like I cant stay up more then 4 hours without falling asleep. i fall asleep anytime I sit pretty much :-\. Some think its mono (I did drink after jule 2 times when she had mono…) and my mother thinks its just being like over exahsted. I’m not sure which. I feel sooooo tired though. Like sleeping constantly and just dont have any energy. It’s a lil weird…idk…but it’s annoying and puts me in a bad mood since I’m so tired all the time and people are always waking me up which never makes you happy. But anyway, it’s pretty weird!!!

Dear Lord,
Please help me have more energy and help me not to be so tired all the time. Please help me take care of my body so I can have as much energy as possible! Thank you for blessing me with a healthy body.
In Jesus’ name,
-Amen

Till next time (FOUR DAYS…OMG I CANT WAIT)

Courage Lyrics

I told another lie today
And I got through this day
No one saw through my games
I know the right words to say
Like “I don’t feel well”
“I ate before I came”

Then someone tells me how good I look
and for a moment
For a moment I am happy
But when I’m alone
No one hears me cry

I need you to know
I’m up through the night
Some days I’m still fighting to walk towards the light
I need you to know
That we’ll be okay
Together we can make it through another day

I don’t know the first time I felt unbeautiful
The day I chose not to eat
What I do know is how I changed my life forever
I know I should know better
There are days when I’m okay
And for a moment
For a moment I find hope
But there are days when I’m not okay
And I need your help
So I’m letting go

I need you to know
I’m not through the night
Some days I’m still fighting to walk towards the light
I need you to know
That we’ll be okay
Together we can make it through another day

You should know you’re not on your own
These secrets are walls that keep us alone
I don’t know when but I know now
Together we’ll make it through somehow
Together we’ll make it through somehow

I need you to know
I’m not through the night
Some days I’m still fighting to walk towards the light
I need you to know
That we’ll be okay
Together we can make it through another day

I love my friend…

Stand in the rain February 17, 2007

Filed under: Songs — beyondtheoutside @ 4:32 PM

Just heard this song for the first time today…

Superchic(k) Stand In The Rain Lyrics
She never slows down
She doesn’t know why but she knows that
When she’s all alone it feels like its all coming down

She won’t turn around
The shadows are long and she fears
If she cries that first tear
The tears will not stop raining down

So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it’s all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won’t drown
And one day what’s lost can be found
You stand in the rain

She won’t make a sound
Alone in this fight with herself
And the fears whispering if she stands she’ll fall down

She wants to be found
The only way out is through everything
She’s running from
Wants to give up and lie down

So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it’s all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won’t drown
And one day what’s lost can be found
You stand in the rain

So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it’s all crashing down
Stand through the pain
You won’t drown
And one day what’s lost can be found

So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it’s all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won’t drown
And one day what’s lost can be found
You stand in the rain

I like it but dont have time to post about it. Btw, not ALL my posts will be about songs…I just like these songs and wanted to post about a few…sry about that!

"Beauty From Pain" February 16, 2007

Filed under: Songs — beyondtheoutside @ 11:05 AM

SUPERCHIC[K] LYRICS

“Beauty From Pain”

The lights go out all around me
One last candle to keep out the night
And then the darkness surrounds me
I know i’m alive but i feel like i’ve died
And all that’s left is to accept that it’s over
My dreams ran like sand through the fists that i made
I try to keep warm but i just grow colder
I feel like i’m slipping away

After all this has passed, i still will remain
After i’ve cried my last, there’ll be beauty from pain
Though it won’t be today,
Someday i’ll hope again
And there’ll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain

My whole world is the pain inside me
The best i can do is just get through the day
When life before is only a memory
I’ll wonder why God lets me walk through this place
And though i can’t understand why this happened
I know that i will when i look back someday
And see how you’ve brought beauty from ashes
And made me as gold purified through these flames

After all this has passed, i still will remain
After i’ve cried my last, there’ll be beauty from pain
Though it won’t be today,
Someday i’ll hope again
And there’ll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain

Here i am, at the end of me
Tryin to hold to what i can’t see
I forgot how to hope
This night’s been so long
I cling to Your promise
There will be a dawn

After all this has passed, i still will remain
After i’ve cried my last, there’ll be beauty from pain
Though it won’t be today,
Someday i’ll hope again
And there’ll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain

Hmm…again, a GREAT song…Lyrics are amazing to me. I get to dance to this song this spring (if you wanna see it, just ask me when and where!). But so I’ve heard it a lot and just recently started thinking about it. Ok…so lets walk through this together my dear reader.
First Verse…Well to me, this talks about the beginning of my trials and difficulties. I just get dispaired and feel like I just wanna die!
Second Verse…When things get worse. Well, yea, sometimes its like your entire world is just this painful-thing. But that’s because you are focusing in on yourself instead of what you should be focusing on. Or what I should be focusing in on. And then ‘life before is just a memory”. like the happiness. It’s true, you don’t remember what it was like. To be-truly-happy or joyful. I did once ask God why, but I really really don’t like doing that so tried to avoid that. But then I start turning my eyes up and know that something good will come out of this..these ashes will be life! I like how they talk about gold purified through flames. Flames are hot! They hurt, but they make gold beautiful. And so that’s cool because becoming purified isn’t painless!
Verse Three I see more as like a down point, when we really loose hope and just totally throw out the window that God’s using this! ‘this nights been so long’. BUT, there IS a dawn coming, and you have to LOOK for that light!!!!! They say in another song, “and through her tears she can see the dawn is coming skies will clear” and so that is cool because through your tears and pain, there IS a dawn coming. Things WILL be ok. It all depends where your eyes are!
And the chorus, well she talks about when the trial is over. But they didn’t say it was over, but WHEN. They will still hope. There WILL be beauty. Even if it’s not now. There WILL be.

Dear God,
Thank you for giving us the hope that there WILL be beauty. Thank you for teaching me this. Please help me to keep my eyes in the right place during times like that. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me Lord God.
In Jesus’ name,
-Amen!

Until next time…(SEVEN DAYS!!!!!)

"Suddenly"

Filed under: Songs — beyondtheoutside @ 11:00 AM

SUPERCHICK LYRICS

“Suddenly”

She feels lost in her own life
Treading water just to keep from slipping under
And she wonders if she’s where she’s supposed to be
Tired of trying to do it right
Her dreams are just too far away to see how steps she’s making might be taking her to who she’ll be

And suddenly it isn’t what it used to be
And after all this time it worked out just fine
And suddenly i am where i’m supposed to be
And after all the tears, i was supposed to be here

She feels locked in her own life
Scared of what she might lose
If she moves away from who she was
And she’s afraid of being free
There’s a way she knows is right
And she can’t feel the things she knows and so each step she’s taking
Is a step of faith towards who she’ll be

And suddenly it isn’t what it used to be
And after all this time it worked out just fine
And suddenly i am where i’m supposed to be
And after all the tears, i was supposed to be here

And here where the night is darkest black
She feels the fear
And the light is farthest back
And through her tears
She can see the dawn
Its coming skies will clear
And the light will find her where she’s always been

And suddenly it isn’t what it used to be
And after all this time it worked out just fine
And suddenly i am where i’m supposed to be
And after all the tears, i was supposed to be here

HMM….Great song. In different ways, I could say I’ve felt that way. Not so much ‘trapped in my life’ but just that I have to take that step of faith and everything. it’s…idk, hard to explain unless you’ve been there before. But, now that God’s been stepping in, well, now that I’m LETTING Him, things are more like the chorus of this song. Like I know that I’m not where I used to be. I guess God’s pulled me out of that. After all this time God DID work things out just great! And I kno He has me where He wants me. And yea, there were lots of tears, but I’m where God wants me…Idk, but I like this song a lot so thought I’d blog why!

Dear Lord,
Thank you for putting me where I’m supposed to be. Thank you SO much. Thats all I can say…
In Jesus name,
-Amen!

Until next time, (SEVEN days!!!!!!!!!)

Devotion February 15, 2007

Filed under: God showed/taught me/ect — beyondtheoutside @ 2:32 PM

Am I devoted? The definition of devoted (devotion/devote)
1. deep love and commitment
2. great dedication and loyalty
3. strong enthusiasm and admiration for somebody or something
4. fervent religious or spiritual feeling (formal)
5. the act of devoting something or being devoted to a particular purpose

So if THAT is what devotion is, what am I devoted to? Is it friends? A book? Dancing? WHAT am I devoted to? Devotion is a deep thing. I don’t think devotion is just a “oh yea, I like…” It’s a personal thing.

What SHOULD I be devoted to? God. I KNOW that. Do I have a deep love? Am I committed to Him? AM I DEVOTED to Him? Those are questions to ponder. Am I putting things above God? I know that’s wrong. Do I love God more then ANYTHING else? Is spending time with Him the most important thing? When I go to friends houses, do I still have my quiet times/devotions? If I find I’m not devoted to God, what AM I devoted to? What’s more important then my Lord? Reader, what is your most important thing? What are YOU devoted to?
Those are just questions to ponder.

Dear Lord,
You are the most important thing. Show me if I’m not making You the most important thing in my life. Help me correct it if You’re not. YOU are the bestest thing ever. Nothing can even COMPARE to You!
In Jesus’ name,
-Amen
