I'm Still A Dreamer!

Just listening to this song today and the only word I can say is AMEN!  "This is how my weary heart stays alive."  No matter what comes my way or whatever the future holds... I can say with full confidence, "I'm still a dreamer, a believer!"
-Alicia


"The Redeemer"
by, Sanctus Real

Sometimes I just want to start over, 'cause everything looks like a wreck
And I need the courage to carry on, 'cause I can't see what's ahead
And there are places I've wished I could be, battles I've wanted to win
Dreams that have slipped through my hands
I may never get back again

But I'm still a dreamer, a believer
Oh, I've lost my faith in so many things, but I still believe in You
'Cause You can make anything new

Sometimes I just wish we could say all the things that are easy to hear
Ignore the injustice we see and explain every unanswered prayer
But I'd rather speak honestly and wear a tattered heart on my sleeve
'Cause in the middle of my broken dreams, redemption is here

And I'm still a dreamer, a believer
Oh, I've lost my faith in so many things, but I still believe in You
'Cause You are the answer, the redeemer
Oh, I've given up on too many things, but I'm not giving up on You
'Cause You can make anything new

I don't have every answer in life
But I'm trusting You one day at a time
'Cause You can make a weak heart stay alive forever
this is where Heaven and Earth collide
I lift my hands and give my life
This is how my weary heart stays alive

Oh, I'm still a dreamer (This is where heaven and earth collide)
(I lift my hands and give my life)
Still a believer (This is how my weary heart stays alive)
Oh, You are the answer (Oh, this is where Heaven and Earth collide)
(I lift my voice and give my life)
The redeemer (This is how my weary heart stays alive, oh)

'Cause You can make anything new
Yeah, You can make anything new

Amen Sister, it is hard sometimes isn't it. Most of the time I really try to be that "Girl Scout", I assume the Lord expects me to be. But I have realized that he doesn't want us to be "brave little" girl scouts and boy scouts. He want's us to "come". All of us that are weary, overworked, underpaid, tired, lost our faith in a lot of things, but trying to keep "THE FAITH". Maybe he just wants us to get out of the boat and don't be scared of the darkness or the waves of uncertainty and certainly , no sleep walking, but just look at HIM, and keep on walking toward him. I should write a song So I am leaving a link, it should work. It is a song called Stronger by Mandisa. It is the believer's Rocky song; ha ha Have wonderful day Alicia.
