“We won’t numb the pain” – Tenth Avenue North

We’re taking paths of least resistance
And never feel our soul’s persistence
Turn on the radio
We don’t wanna know
Keep on running in cruise control

We were never meant to live like this
So much has happened and too easy to miss, yeah
Cheap thrills, social media thrills, use sex like a drug and we can’t keep still

Distracted, distracted
Keep ourselves so distracted
We want more

We won’t numb the pain
Hands reaching to the sky
Hearts ready for the fire
Eyes open till we die

We won’t numb the pain
Slow down inside your life
Stand still against the tide
Keep fighting for the silence
We won’t numb the pain

I talk influence and being strategic
But all I’m feeling is narcissistic
Use recognition, but the adrenaline won’t stop long enough to hear this conviction

We were never meant to live like this
Stand up for anything and be dismissed
We don’t want it real, we keep it trivial
Objectified sex it gives a greater feel

We won’t numb the pain
Hands reaching to the sky
Hearts ready for the fire
Eyes open till we die

We won’t numb the pain
Slow down inside your life
Stand still against the tide
Keep fighting for the silence
We won’t numb the pain

We want the cure, not a medication
We’re gonna deal with it now
We want the cure, not a medication
We’re gonna deal with it now

We won’t numb the pain
Hands reaching to the sky
Hearts ready for the fire
Eyes open till we die

We won’t numb the pain
Slow down inside your life
Stand still against the tide
Keep fighting for the silence
We won’t numb the pain

Gonna feel my,
Gonna feel my,
Gonna feel my heart now

Let me get a taste of your sweetness
Give me one glimpse of your lovely light
Lord, be my joy and treasure
My delight

Let me have a sense of your presence
May I trust your mercy all my life
I just wanna be a fire burning in the night

Fire, fire, fire, fire
Fire in my heart, fire in my soul
May the fire of your love burn away control
Satisfy my heart, cause I don’t wanna steal
Or give in to my lust just to feel

Fire, fire, fire, fire

 

Change your heart

 

I like this song a great deal, but it I just realised how close to home it hits as I try to hide from pain. Sure, I face quite a bit of physical pain daily, but that is not what I fear. It’s the emotional and heart-hurting pain that I fear. It’s the letting go and letting God – I don’t want to get hurt. So I numb the pain, even as I sing this song.

What if God doesn’t want me to numb the pain? What if He wants me to experience it, so I can grow from it, heal from it, and seek Him more? I think that is the truth. But it’s scary.

What kind of pain are you afraid of? Admit and reveal it to God. It’s what I’m working on too. Thankfully, we have a God who does not judge or condemn – He helps us and strengthens us. He knows what we’re feeling and what we’re facing before we even understand it ourselves.

“For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.” – John 3:17

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10

He is your God. He is my God, and He will help you. He will help me. Because He loves us greatly. He will help us identify this pain we fear, and He will help us face is – help us conquer it, because through Jesus, we are more than conquerors! ”

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” – Romans 8:37

Hallelujah. :)

This post turned out a lot different than I first thought, but I will leave it here. May He fill the rest of this post with His words!

 

 

Huh, funny. I didn't mean to click on this but then read it and found it's good timing. :)

I was awarded with The Liebster Award

Indeed! I was quite excited to receive an email from Shantelle at A Writer’s Heart  letting me know that she had awarded me. :) So, why not get started?

The Rules:

4. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominated.
 
5. Notify the new nominees of their award.
************************************************************
Questions Given to me to Answer:

1) What is the driving passion of your life?

My Lord and Savior. Truly, He is for whom I think and breath. It is by Him that I am. You know that verse, “Apart from Me you can do nothing”? I have found that completely and utterly true in my life. Over and over, Jesus has shown me – ever so gently no less – how much I need Him, and how He is always, always, always carying me as His sheep. He is my comfort, my grace, my Redeemer. And He is my driving passion.

2) Can you name a favorite character from a movie you’ve seen recently?

Just one? ;) Characters are my favourite. But let’s see…from a movie I’ve seen recently…We watched “Sense and Sensibility” (2008) and favourite character from that is Elinor Dashwood.

3) What’s one book (or chapter, verse, whatever…) of the Bible that has particularly touched you and why?

Ezekial 34:11-17 has really rooted itself deeply in my heart. Why? Because it ministers to me where He has me right now. I am His sheep/lamb and He is my Shepherd and He will never forsake me. I cling to that. :)

For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord God. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick.” – Ez. 34:11-17

4) How tall are you? *smiles*

Haha, um…Five Feet, Two and a half inches.

5) What’s one thing a book needs to have in order to make it a favorite for you?

Faith. Strongly God centered and teaching, yet not in a condemning way. I really, really love and thrive on Godly fiction!

6) How did you start and what’s your favorite thing about blogging?

I started blogging back when I was like…10/11 when I joined HomeschoolBlogger. It was just fun then. I don’t think I had a particular reason! My favourite thing about blogging now is connecting with others, and sharing my love of books. :D

7) What’s something exciting that has happened in your life recently?

Getting closer to my book being published. :)

8) Why do you write (blogs, books, whatever)?

Books: because writing is in me. It’s in me blood, one could say. :D I write because I love it, and because I hope to reach out to others and show God’s healing as He has shown me.

9) Can you describe (or find a picture of) a different-era outfit that you’d love to wear?

Oooh, you don’t want to get me started!! I have two boards on Pinterest devoted to my favourite outfits from other era’s! I will try my best to just keep it down to ONE though. ;)

That is just beautiful.

I love draping sleeves…*sigh* But at the same time, I love this kinda thing:

SCA Garb Norse Viking Medieval Gown 2 Piece by camelots0closet, $62.00

I’d wear both styles all the time if I could!

10) Favorite songs?

“Worn”, “No Man is an Island”, “On and On” and SO many others of Tenth Avenue North’s, and many, many, many songs of TobyMac’s. I’m also enjoying “Drops in the Ocean” by Hawk Nelson, and “Soul on Fire” by Third Day.

11) Any advice for your fellow Christian bloggers/writers?

Focus on God only. In all you do, but also in your writing, whatever kind that may be. Everything we do is for Him, and He will guide us along His narrow path. Don’t focus on wordcounts, pages, or popularity, just keep your eyes on our Savior! He will do the rest. :)

2) Do you have a (few) favourite books? If so what are they?

3) Characters. How do you feel about them? Do you write them, or enjoy them from ‘afar’ (reading, movies, etc. Which really isn’t from ‘afar’. One can get really attached to characters…like I do!)?

4) How do you like to spend your free time?

5) What got you blogging in the first place?

6) Are you a tea drinker or a coffee drinker?

Book Review: “The Fragrance of Geraniums” by Alicia G. Ruggieri

Hello Readers! A couple notes before I start in to this book review for a lovely book: One, Happy Mother’s Day! If you’re a mother, I hope you have a wonderful day basking in your family’s love, and if you’re a ‘child’ (no matter the age – that’s pretty much all of us, isn’t it? ;)) I hope you have a lovely day loving your mother! Second Note: I know I had mentioned in my Pinterest Post not this last Friday but the one before that, that we were expecting my nephew to come, but alas, he has not wanted to arrive! We’re waiting still – had a few signs that it could be soooon!! That’s why this is later than I had originally planned. :D Okay, carry on!

 

 

“The Fragrance of Geraniums” by Alicia G. Ruggieri

Age recommendation: 16+

My rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

About the Book:

In brokenness, she found grace…

Told from multiple perspectives, this is a powerful story of three women – of the threads of mercy that connect them – and of heart-wrenching sorrows alchemized by the Heavenly Father’s overwhelming redeeming grace.

Rhode Island – 1934

A GIRL
Grace Picoletti has nothing going for her – but she’s determined to succeed in life, nonetheless. Born to severe destitution, she claws her way up from the pit of family shame and secrets. She avoids close friendships – even with the likable, persistent Paulie Giorgi…

A WOMAN
Despite her own agonizing emotional pain, childless Emmeline Kinner reaches out to a young woman so far beneath her. She could never have known whom else God would set in her path through her friendship with Grace…

A MOTHER
Long ago, Sarah Picoletti resigned herself to a loveless, abusive life – and she believes that her daughter Grace must inherit the same fate. Yet Sarah’s own soul cries out for the blessed peace and hope of which the radio minister speaks…

My Thoughts

What an absolutely lovely book. It is heart-warming and heart wrenching in its entirety. I loved it. Having loved Alicia’s “The House of Mercy” (which I reviewed here), I knew I wouldn’t have a hard time enjoying this one too, but I really was blown away by just how much I loved it. It was so real, and so well done. Alicia has such a God-given gift for writing, and I absolutely love how she uses it all for His glory!! It shines through so beautifully in her books, and I can’t tell you just how much I appreciate that!

Knowing that God is at the heart of Alicia and her books, it makes the reading so pleasant, so full of joy. So wholesome. And this story felt like a ‘coming home’ kind of story – it was just so comfortable and so homey and so alive! And as I said, it was heart-wrenching. Main character Grace has an unfortunate homelife, but oh how there is redemption in that, and how it is found! I really enjoyed reading from various character perspectives – it made for a delightful and depth-filled journey.

And as a side note, I absolutely loved Paulie and his steady, caring affection for Grace, and how he wanted her to know above all that Jesus cared for her. He was so sweet. And I really, really hope there is more of their relationship – and so many others – in the sequel Miss Ruggieri is writing now!! I really cannot wait for it.

Excellent and superb book, Alicia! I am so thankful to have read it, and highly recommend it to others!

After I finished it, I was in the car and heard a song on the radio (a song that I love) and thought how fitting it was to this book, so I thought I’d share that here, too:

All the Pretty Things

A friend on Pinterest (and a pen-pal matter-o-fact) pinned a pin (not dreamed a dream) that had some beautiful lyrics.  This is that pin:

These lyrics are absolutely beautiful and so true. <3

I asked what the lyrics were from and she informed me they were from Tenth Avenue North’s song “All the Pretty Things”. I now  love this song, and it really hits deep.

I was going to try to add a video of it, but I’m having some technical difficulties, so I’m afraid I can’t post the song. But look it up! It’s beautiful

 

“All the Pretty Things” by Tenth Avenue North

We are, we are, we’re caught in the in-between
Of who we already are and who we’re yet to be
We’re looking for love but finding we’re still in need
It’s only what we have lost will we be allowed to keep
And we’re waiting but our eyes are wandering to
All this earth holds dear

Look at all the pretty things
That steal my heart away
I can feel I’m fading
‘Cause Lord, I love so many things
That keep me from your face
Come and save me

And we run, we run, to finally be set free
But we’re fighting for what we already have received
So we’re waiting but our eyes are wandering to
All this earth holds dear

Look at all the pretty things
That steal my heart away
I can feel I’m fading
‘Cause Lord, I love so many things
That keep me from your face
Come and save me

We are, we are, we’re caught in the in-between
But we’re fighting for what we already have received
We are, we are, we’re caught in the in-between
But we’re fighting for what we already have received

Look at all the pretty things
That steal my heart away
I can feel I’m fading
‘Cause Lord I love so many things
That keep me from your face
Come and save me

 

How true is that? For me, there ARE a lot of things that keep me away from Him – so many distraction. The computer and reading are big ones for me. When I get up, I want to do what I want to do – not what He wants. But I don’t want that any more. I need Him to come and save me.

Tired, Worn, strong, weak, and still holding on.

I was looking back over some of my posts, and it is interesting to re-read them and remember where I was at with each one as I wrote them. I remembered this post well in particular:

“Tagged, short update, skunks, etc” posted on April 21st, 2013
https://godspeculiartreasurerae.wordpress.com/2013/04/21/tagged-short-update-skunks-etc/

I’m going to copy and paste the part that I recall most:

Spiritually/emotionally I have been going through a lot lately. To be painfully honest, I have been and still am a total “mess”. There has been so much. Sometimes all I can do is nothing. Seriously, nothing. Except maybe cry, and relate to Tenth Avenue North’s song, “I’m Worn” which has meant a lot to me. Here, you can hear it too, if you haven’t already:

One thing that I am finding out, that is pretty much concrete, is that I am exactly where God wants me. He wants me at the very bottom, and He wants it so I can’t do anything. Because He says, “Apart from Me, you can do nothing” and I keep seeking Him, and He keeps having me where I’m at. I am learning that I really can’t do anything unless He wills it. And He’s comforted me with the fact that He is in my tears. That is Him.
I am waiting on Him to give the “go-ahead” for a couple of things, and so much of me wants to just push past that and do it myself, but I know that it is best to wait for Him to say, “It is time”. So I wait. And I pray. And I pray some more. And I cry a lot too. But that’s okay. Some days are good, and some days I can barely look up. But that’s okay, too. Today is kind of one of those “not so great” days. I just feel bleh. Tomorrow will be different though. And so I will keep waiting on my Lord and Saviour.

I recall that bit most, because I am not quite out of that same valley. I am in a different path, a different setting, but this year has been a most interesting one for me, spiritually. I am not as worn, not as tired, but I still can relate to those words I wrote that April day. There are many days when I break down and ask God many questions regarding this situation. But He is ever faithful, even on the days I am not so sure and I run from Him.
I am broken in a different way than I was then, but still broken. And I still know that where I am is exactly where God wants me right now. He is healing me in a much different way than what I am used to. And it takes longer, and maybe it’s more painful, but He knows it’s only what I can handle. Today I praise Him. Yesterday I didn’t understand Him. Tomorrow I don’t know what I will be like. Thankfully He’s patient with me all the time :)

This morning I woke up earlier than usual, and I was still plenty tired and so I just laid on the couch downstairs for a while and worked through what I was feeling on something with God. He gave me answers and helped me with where I am at right now. Every question and emotion I threw at Him, He answered and comforted me on. What a great God we have!
I will not admit I am over or out of this place. I don’t know how long it will last (it seems to be lasting forever XD).
And that’s where I’m at =)

Hello :)
Sorry for such a long time with no posts. I have been lacking in time, once again, and when I have time, my blog doesn’t immediately pop into my brain :) I kept meaning to make a post on a more deep subject, but alas, that has not happened either. I specifically wanted to go more indepth with the video I posted recently (found in this post: https://godspeculiartreasurerae.wordpress.com/2013/03/27/will-you-marry-me/ ); I don’t have much time to do so now, nor the energy, but I do want to stress the fact of it being really good, and I highly recommend that you all watch it – if you already have, that’s great, and another watch is great too! :) I really have thought really differently about taking communion now after having seen that video. How it is a covenant between Jesus and I, and yes, I want to join into that covenant whole-heartedly (is that a word?). Every Sunday I re-commit to that covenant by taking communion. As Jesus asks, “Will you marry Me?”, how do we respond? Will we say yes to Him, and open our lives up to Him completely and be His bride? I want to. All that is within me yearns to say yes, and be a “perfect disciple” of His – I cannot be perfect though. As much as I want to and strive to, I simply can’t attain perfection like that. I can however, say yes to Him. I can say yes, and give my heart to Him, and so I will. Even if I fail Him, I still want to say YES, because I love Him so ardently and want Him to be my everything.
Spiritually/emotionally I have been going through a lot lately. To be painfully honest, I have been and still am a total “mess”. There has been so much. Sometimes all I can do is nothing. Seriously, nothing. Except maybe cry, and relate to Tenth Avenue North’s song, “I’m Worn” which has meant a lot to me. Here, you can hear it too, if you haven’t already:

My nephews are BEAUTIFUL, and I don’t think I could love them anymore than I already do. They are amazing :) Elias is doing great, as is Liam. I love my boys.
We have a dog. We got him about two weeks ago, and that has been a trial. It is getting better though. At first he killed a chicken, which wasn’t a big deal because he didn’t kill the chicken, and we have more of those. But then he got off his run and killed our pet duck right in front of me, and that was horrible. It was horrible for many reasons, and shook me so much because it was more on the level of trust, and God was teaching me something. We weren’t going to keep the dog after that, but we decided to give him a try and bring him through training. We named him Doug (like the dog on UP). Training starts this Thursday. Dad has been the one taking care of Doug, but he got called up to Duluth to help my grandparents today, and so I am taking care of him now. God has healed my issues of trust, and – provided he doesn’t kill my cats next – I am beginning to like Doug a bit more. I am not a dog person (I love my kitties), but he is a good dog.
We got a dog mainly because we have been having severe skunk problems. Five in the last month or so. Dad shot three of them, our neighbour shot one, and one got hit on the road and lumbered into our yard to die. Two of the three Dad has shot, I have encountered in the barn – both a foot away from me. So that was fun. We’ve decided that Dad is going to teach me to shoot his gun, because obviously it would come in handy.
So, now I shall get on with the tag, because I am tired and ready to watch a movie with Mum and Noah :)

tag

1) How would you describe you style?
Interesting and different. Often un-matching, always very “Raechel”.

2) What are you wardrobe staples?
Hmm…skirts, t-shirts and either hoodies or my army jacket.

3) Most expensive clothing item you own?
Probably my bridesmaid dress – I didn’t pay for that though..I think half was paid by Mum and Dad and the other half by Dallas and her money she saved up for her wedding…The dress was about a hundred…maybe a bit more. Not sure.

4) Most wanted item?
An army knapsack that is a little smaller than the one I have now (which I LOVE, but it is a bit too big to carry around very where. I’ll have to post pictures of it soon, though, because it is AWESOME).

5) Favorite designer?
Don’t have one. I like OP for shoes though :D

6)How much do you spend on clothing?
Not much at all. If it’s more than $10 I’ll most likely skip it.

7) Favorite places to shop?
Well, shopping for clothes (or shopping in general) isn’t a favourite pastime of mine, but mainly Walmart and thrift-stores.

8) Favorite fragrance?
Don’t know that I have one.

9) What is your go to outfit when you don’t have anything to wear?
Either my worn denim skirt (it’s not tight jean – it’s loose and almost flowy) or my brown skirt, with one of my favourite t-shirts. Probably my light bulb one or the Minnie and Mickey one.

10) Most prized possession?
Does this have to be fashion related? My Bible is probably my most prized possession…otherwise I don’t know. I am thankful for my things, but try not to cling to them. though I fail with that often…

Okay, so, I tag anyone who wants it :) Let me know if you do it, so I can see! =)
I’ll be off now, so ta-ta.

“Will you marry Me?”

Hello!
Well, again a time has lapsed between posts. That was not really intentional though. A lot has happened, and I’ve gone through a bit :) As most of you know, we got the influenza a couple of weeks ago. It went through the family, and some got it worse than others. I didn’t get it so bad. But then, after we were starting to get better, I came down with some horrid pain, and I do mean horrid. Worse pain I have ever had. It was in my lower back – Dad thought maybe it was a slipped disc or something; I was stuck on the couch for a few days, because I literally couldn’t move. A couple of times when I would have to get up to use the bathroom, I passed out, and vomited from the extreme pain. I cringe to think about it, really :P When it wasn’t getting better, I finally had to go to the Emergency room. But I couldn’t get in the car…so, an ambulance came, lights on and everything. It was an interesting time. Not one I want to ever relive. At the ER they gave me pain meds, and took Xrays when the pain died down a little. It wasn’t any slipped discs, and nothing was broken, so the doctor said it was just a pinched nerve or something and they sent me home with pain meds. They didn’t touch the pain, and the next night, I was running a fever and still in horrendous pain, so Mum called the ER again, and asked some questions. No tests were taken while I was at the ER. Blablabla, I wasn’t about to go in that night. No way. So we prayed and I fell asleep, and in the morning it still hurt, and I just knew something was wrong, so I had Mum look where it hurt, and what do you know, this ugly cyst had come to the surface! So, we went back into the ER that morning – by car, thankfully. I sat on my knees. At the ER they drained my cyst, (which was painful beyond belief again. Cried the whole time) and sent me home with a doctor appt. for the following week. Blablabla again. So yeah, it was a cyst, and an odd one at that (they don’t really know the cause of it), but the doc. appt. went okay, blablabla, had to go through another painful week, but not as bad as the past few, and now that brings us to yesterday, my second doc. appt. We prayed hard that the doctor would say it was healing nicely, and we could stop sticking gauze inside the cyst daily (again, painful). Praise the Lord, that is what he said!! When he said it, my heart leaped so with joy and praise to God! And now it should be closed and healed up within the week. This is the short story, mind you :D It was a lot. Surgery is suggested to completely remove the cyst, but we have time to pray and make a final decision on that. So glad.

Oh, and my elder sister is expecting her second baby any day now!! We are all so excited, and waiting so eagerly. You’ll definitely hear about the arrival! Yay!!!

Anyway, I didn’t come on here to say all that – I have a video I wanted to share. A friend shared it with us, and it really is super good, plus the guy is funny. :) So, enjoy! The message is amazing. It kind of ties in with my last post about glowing in Christ, being the bride of Christ :)
