Image result for matthew west new we are the broken

I just heard this song and wanted to share this video with you. Matthew West’s music always seems to touch a part of my heart as I can relate to the lyrics. We are the broken… but we are also the chosen. God loves to use the broken.. for it is through our brokenness that His Light will shine for others to see!

“We Are The Broken” by Matthew West

Most my life I’ve been doing my best to
Try and hide anything less than perfect
I covered up all my scars
I gotta make them think I’ve got it together
Make believe nobody ever has to see
What I keep in the dark
Truth is, I was wrong
That’s the part that you have wanted all along
We are, we are, we are the broken
But we are, we are, we are the chosen
So come on shine, shine, shine
Your beautiful light
Through the cracks inside our hearts tonight
‘Cause we are, we are, we are the broken
Coast is clear we got nothing to hide
All are welcome here
Step into the light
Where there’s no more fear
Can you hear the freedom song our souls are singing
Come just as you are
Take those walls around you and tear ‘em all apart
We are the weak, the wrong, the too far gone
We are the outcasts, yeah, but today we belong
We are the lost, the found, the been knocked down
But we got back up and now we are the city on a hill
Is filled with stained glass hearts, but we come as we are
We come as we are
And we shine like stars, shine like stars
We come as we are and we shine like stars

Recalculating! Our GPS To Our Future

There are times that we all need to recalculate… and get back on the right path to our future.

is what many of us hear…
when we take a wrong path…
or our direction is not clear.
For our GPS devices…
will tell us the way…
but sometimes we chose others…
or just intentionally stray.

Then “recalculating”…
is the message that it’ll repeat…
after telling us to turn around…
then seemingly giving up in defeat.
Because it will try again…
to give us different routes…
by recalculating our destination…
and our current whereabouts. Continue reading

Abusive Soul Ties

Image result for breaking soul ties of abuse

Soul ties are real. They are like bungee cords that keep pulling us back into relationships… even when abuse is involved. Too many ask why people do not leave an abusive relationship. Until these soul ties are severed, these cords will keep pulling victims back into those situations… including our children with abusive parents. We must pray that these soul ties to abuse must be broken.

Abusive soul ties…
must be broken today!
That our children…
will never act that way!
That the abuse they saw…
with painful words still today…
will stop at this generation…
and not passed on in any way.
For the cycle of abuse…
will continue on and on…
till we sever these ties…
and not make it our own. Continue reading

Shalom Israel


Shalom Israel

 The God of Israel is my God

I enjoy the benefits of being in a relationship with Him

Through His son Jesus Christ, He calls me His own

Though a gentile

Like Ruth I have been grafted into His family

By a loving Father.

He adopts anyone who will accept His son as their savior


Just as Ruth did I have made up my mind

“Your God will be my God, your people will be my people.”

I chose You oh God of Israel

I chose life

I stand with Your people

Shalom Israel
