Pass It ON: Strangely Dim

city-lights-dim-dark

I have wanted to make a post about this song for a long while now, but for some reason I haven’t attempted until today. I heard this song many times on the radio and sung along with it, but it wasn’t until I was going to hang out, in order to shake this cooped up feeling that was hanging on me, that I really listened to this song. I was just singing along with the Christian radio when the lyrics made its way to my heart. That’s when I started crying, ruined make up and everything. But I felt so free, so absolutely blessed. Here I am, down on myself, running into trials here and there, wondering for the billionth time why God even wants to save me?

I sing this song when I can, just to remind myself that God loves me no matter what, even when he reprimands me. I am his, for he has declared it so, and I have taken the path of truth. I want tot share the lyrics because its so true. You focus on God, and everything grows strangely dim. We forget a lot of the time that God is mightier than our biggest troubles, he will deliver us. We just have to fix our eyes on all that he is.

I’ve got all these plans piled up sky high. A thousand dreams on hold and I don’t know why. I got a front row seat to the longest wait and I just can’t see past the things I pray today.
But when I fix my eyes on all that you are, then every doubt I feel deep in my heart grows strangely dim. All my worries fade and fall to the ground cause when I seek Your face and don’t look around
Any place I’m in grows strangely dim.

Sometimes where I stand on this narrow road is in a raging storm
Or a valley low but oh….
But when I fix my eyes on all that you are, then every doubt I feel deep in my heart grows strangely dim. All my worries fade and fall to the ground cause when I seek Your face and don’t look around
Any place I’m in grows strangely dim.
I don’t know, I don’t know what tomorrow may hold. But I know, but I know that You’re holding it all so no matter what may come
I’m gonna fix my eyes on all that You are ‘Til every doubt I feel deep in my heart grows strangely dim let all my worries fade and fall to the ground. I’m gonna seek your face and not look around ‘til the place I’m in grows strangely, strangely, strangely dim.
By Francesca Battistelli

I am going to fix my eyes on my Jesus. I wish you guys would fix your eyes on him, let him wrap you in his love. Its going to be hard, but its worth it. It’s difficult to let him lead for we get afraid of the physical, but I want to. He’s helping me to. Thank you Jesus.

I turn to the David Crowder Band again, for my next Pass it On post. It is undoubtedly one of my favorite song and it is so fresh and just …I don’t know how to describe it. Its utterly beautiful and it fills you with such a great need to shout out and say Thank You Jesus. Thank you Father God! Its such a beautiful song. I pray that God will allow me to praise him every day, every time, no matter the hour, no matter how disobedient. God I pray that you shower my family, friends and I with your blessings father. The blessing of your presence and ignite a passion in us that is so fierce father. God please continue to reveal yourself to us, and help us to seek you with our all. Father god, Thank you, Amen.

Oh Praise Him by David Crowder Band

Turn your ear
To heaven and hear
The noise inside
The sound of angels’ awe
The sound of angels’ songs
And all this for a King
We could join and sing
All to Christ the King

How constant, how divine
This song of ours will rise
O, how constant, how divine
This love of ours will rise
Will rise

O praise Him
O praise him
He is Holy
He is Holy (yeah)

Turn your gaze
To heaven and raise
A joyous noise
The sound of salvation come
The sound of rescued ones
And all this for a King
Angels join to sing
All for Christ our King

Oh la, la, la, la, la, la

How infinite and sweet
This love so rescuing
O, how infinitely sweet
This great love that has redeemed
As one we sing

Alleluia
Alleluia
He is Holy
He is Holy (yeah)

Pass It On: For You, The Answer To Your Question

I hope this helps to lift you up, so you can see, and know, just how special you are to me, your family, and god who made you for a purpose. I love you, and I want you to know that. I’m not saying it because we’re friends and its what we do, I’m saying it because I love you! I love who you are, I love how god made you and I want you to love you and see what everyone who loves and knows you see’s. Truly loves and knows you. Be enlightened:

Why are you striving these days?

Why are you trying, to earn grace?

Why are you crying?

Let me lift up your face, Just dont turn away

Why are you looking for love?

Why are you still searching as if im not enough?

To where will you go child?

Tell me where will you run, to where will you run?

‘Cause I’ll be by your side, wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please dont fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holdng you

Look at these hands at my side

They swallowed the grave on that night

When I drank the world’s sin

So I can carry you in, and give you life

I wanna give you life

And I’ll be by your side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please dont fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you

Here at my side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please dont fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you

‘Cause I, I love you, I want you to know

Yeah I, I love you, I’ll never let you go

No, no

And I’ll be by your side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please dont fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you

Here at my side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please dont fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you

Here at my side

My hands are holding you.

                           Lyrics for  “By Your Side”—By Tenth Avenue North

I love you! Whenever you feel helpless, you’re not. Whenever you feel alone.,you’re not. Whenever you feel unloved, you’re not. I’ll never stop telling you the words, I just want you to one day believe it and tell yourself it. I’m not perfect, I dont think anyone is, and I dont want to sound all know-it-all, as if I too don’t have those days. We all have those day’s…but it all depends on how you look at it and deal with it in the end. Dont let it build up and build up, just let it out, see whats real. Take it a day at a time if you have to. Just don’t ever feel like you can’t deal with it.

This post is dedicated to a friend of mine, and to everyone else out there who needs to hear these words. I NEEDED (still need) to hear these words. And I tell you, it brings tears to my eyes everytime. These words just remind me of the most wonderful and miraculous thing I have in my life (that we all have) and thats God’s love for us. All of us! Let it be a comfort and a reminder to you as it is to me.

He’s by your side 😉
