Move!

Quotes that make me think and that make me get up and do something!

Good things come to those who wait. Good things come to those who work their asses off and never give up.

The way to love anything is to realise that it may be lost. G.K Chesterton

Learn to let go of things you cannot control.

Fortify yourself with contentment, for this is an impregnable fortress. Epictetus

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

11 Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. 12 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 13 For I can do everything through Christ,[a] who gives me strength. – Philippians 4: 11-13

Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. Helen Keller

You cannot dream yourself into a character: you must hammer and forge yourself into one. Henry D. Thoreau

The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up. Paul Valery

And once you live a good story, you get a taste for a kind of meaning in life, and you can’t go back to being normal; you can’t go back to meaningless scenes stitched together by the forgettable thread of wasted time. Donald Miller

I’ve gone for too long living like I’m not alive. So I’m going to start over tonight beginning with you and I. I don’t want to run from anything uncomfortable. I just want, no I just need this pain to end right here. Miracle – Paramore

All I Need

Do you know where your heart is?
Do you think you can find it?
Or did you trade it for something, somewhere, better just to hide it?

Do you know where your love is?
Do you think that you lost it?
You felt it so strong but nothings turned out how you want it.

Bless my soul. You’re a lonely soul.
Cos you won’t let go of anything you hold.

All I need. Is the air I breathe. And a place to rest my head.

All I Wanted

Think of me when you’re out
When you’re out there
I’ll beg you nice from my knees
And when the world treats you way too fairly
It’s a shame I’m a dream

All I wanted was you

I think I’ll pace my apartment a few times
And fall asleep on the couch
And wake up early to black and white reruns
That escape from my mouth

All I wanted was you

I could follow you to the beginning
Just to relive the start
Maybe then we’d remember to slow down
At all of our favorite parts

All I wanted was you

Little Lyrics

Music is SUCH a powerful medium. Those who have that gift are lucky indeed.

Music that’s been meaning something to me lately…

Anberlin – A Whisper and a Clamor

For most who live and breathe, hell is never knowing who they are now. Tell me who you are now.

It’s not the lies that you sing – but what the silence will scream.

 

Snow Patrol – Make this go on forever

The weight of water, the way you told me to look past everything I had ever learned

And I don’t know where to look, my words just break and melt, please just save me from this darkness.

 

Paramore – Crush Crush Crush

They taped over your mouth, scribbled out the truth with their lies. You little spies.

 

Hillsong Live – This is love

All creation will bow as one, lift their eyes see the risen Son.

Let our voices rise and sing for all He’s done. Our fear is overcome. Our God is love.

 

AND just loving Yellow Brick Road by Angus and Julia Stone.

If ever anyone needed to convince me into loving them, just sit and play and sing me that song over and over.

         
 

Arms Open Wide

Take my life I lay it down
At the cross where I am found
All I have I give to You oh God

Take my hands and make them clean
Keep my heart in purity
That I may walk in all You have for me

Oh here I stand
Arms open wide
Oh I am Yours
And You are mine

Take my moments and my days
Let each breath that I take
Be ever only for You oh God

Oh here I stand
Arms open wide
Oh I am Yours
And You are mine

My whole life is Yours
I give it all
Surrendered to Your Name
And forever I will pray
Have Your way
Have Your way

I Will Exalt You

I Will Exalt You – Brooke Fraser

I will exalt You

I will exalt You

I will exalt You

You are my God

 

My hiding place

My safe refuge

My treasure Lord you are

My friend and King

Anointed One

Most Holy

 

Because You’re with me

Because You’re with me

Because You’re with me

I will not fear

 

My hiding place

My safe refuge

My treasure Lord You are

My friend and King

Anointed One

Most Holy
