this is amazing grace ~bethel music kids

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger
The King of Glory, the King above all kings
Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder
And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder
The King of Glory, the King above all kings
This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh, Jesus, I sing for
All that You've done for me
Who brings our chaos back into order
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter
The King of Glory, the King of Glory
Who rules the nations with truth and justice
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance
The King of Glory, the King above all kings
This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh, Jesus, I sing for
All that You've done for me
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy, worthy, worthy


This is amazing grace, This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh, Jesus, I sing for
All You've done for me, all You've done for me 





have a lovely week!

music monday// beloved

 hi! :)

dropping in to remind you that you are loved!
i hope you soak the truth of this song into your lovely soul
 


Head full of questions, how can you measure up?
To deserve affection, to ever be enough
For this existence
When did it get so hard?
Your heart is beating, alive and breathing
And there's a reason why
You are essential, not accidental
And you should realize

You are beloved
I wanted you to know
You are beloved
Let it soak into your soul
Oh, forget the lies you heard
Rise above the hurt
And listen to these words
You are beloved
I want you to know
You are beloved
You-ou-ou, you-ou-ou, you, you are beloved

Sometimes a heart can feel like a heavy weight
It pulls you under and you just fall away
Is anybody gonna hear you call? (Oh oh)
But there's a purpose
Under the surface
And you don't have to drown
Let me remind you
That love will find you
Let it lift you out
 Don't be afraid
Don't let hope fade
Keep your eyes fixed on the light above
In the heartbreak, in your mistakes
Nothing can separate you from love


Don't be afraid
Don't let hope fade
Keep you eyes fixed on the light above
In the heartbreak, in your mistakes
Nothing can separate you from love
 Don't be afraid
Don't let hope fade
Keep your eyes fixed on the light above (you are beloved)
In the heartbreak, in your mistakes
Nothing can separate you from love
You are beloved
 But now, this is what the Lord says—
    he who created you, Jacob,
    he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
    I have summoned you by name; you are mine. 
 When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze. 
 For I am the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I give Egypt for your ransom,
    Cush and Seba in your stead. 
 Since you are precious and honored in my sight,
    and because I love you,
I will give people in exchange for you,
    nations in exchange for your life. 
 Do not be afraid, for I am with you;
    I will bring your children from the east
    and gather you from the west. 
 I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’
    and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’
Bring my sons from afar
    and my daughters from the ends of the earth— 
 everyone who is called by my name,
    whom I created for my glory,
    whom I formed and made.” //isaiah 43
no matter what negative words someone has spoken that has slayed your heart and 
no matter who has made you feel rejected and unwanted, the truth is you are so loved, beloved. 

focus on the love of Jesus and find your worth and identity in His precious word.
you're going to be so OK, buddy. :)

xoxo, delali.

music monday// you are loved


hi lovelies!
dropping in to remind you that you are absolutely loved despite your flaws and what you think is imperfection about you. :)

via

you are loved ~ stars go dim

We hide pain in the weirdest places
Broken souls with smiling faces
Fighting for surrender
For now and the after, yeah
Just look around and you'll see that people
Are scared to say how they really feel
Oh, we all need a little honesty
You are loved
If your heart's in a thousand pieces
If you're lost and you're far from reason
Just look up; know you are loved
Just look up; and know you are loved
When it feels like something's missing
If it hurts but you can't find healing
Just look up, know you are loved
Just look up, know you are loved
We're not made to be superheroes
Photoshopped, all size zeroes
A light not expected
But not quite perfected yet
Look up; see the sun is shining
There's hope on a new horizon
Calling you, it's calling

You, don't have to prove yourself, don't try to be someone else
You don't have to prove yourself
Don't try to be someone else
You are loved

Just look up; you are loved
Just look up; you are loved
Just look up; you are loved, just look up

"So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture:
They kill us in cold blood because they hate you.
We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.
None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us."// romans 8:31-38

music monday// God is on the move

hiiii! so it's november already!!!
i remember when january peered its head into view and now here we are, already in the first week of the penultimate month of the year! woohooo!!!

so i'd like to share this song to encourage you. you may be feeling like you're a bit behind in the things the Lord has laid on your heart to do or you may be going through some things wondering where He is.

relax. God is around. He is on the move in your life.


Anytime a heart turns from darkness to light
Anytime temptation comes and someone stands to fight
Anytime somebody lives to serve and not be served
I know, I know, I know, I know
God is on the move, on the move
Hallelujah
God is on the move
In many mighty ways
God is on the move, on the move
Hallelujah
God is on the move
On the move today

Anytime in weakness someone falls upon their knees
Or dares to speak the truth that sets men free
Anytime the choice is made to stand upon the Word
I see your generation standing on the truth
In each and everyday saying God is on the move
Anytime the Gospel stirs a searching souls 
And someone says “send me, here I go”


I see your generation standing on the truth
In each and everyday saying God is on the move


Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" // isaiah 6:8

do not give up on God and His wonderful promises to you. 
He. is. on. the. move. :)

music monday// never too far gone

hi lovelies!
 i hope you had a great weekend!
so this song i'm sharing today has been steadily replaying in my head and i thought it was worth the share.
i've come to love it so much.
enjoy!




never too far gone~ jordan feliz

I have loved you from the start
I have seen your hurting heart (your hurting heart)
And you feel so lonely, but you keep on hiding
'Cause you feel so guilty for what you've done, but
There's no distance too far, that I can't reach you
There's no place that's so dark, that I can't find you
Anywhere that you are, if you need proof
Take a look at these scars, and know I love you
Doesn't matter, doesn't matter, doesn't matter what you've done
You are never, you are never, never too far gone
Oh ah-oh, ah-oh
You have run down every road
And you've lost your way back home (your way back home)
And you feel so dirty; you know you're unworthy
Feeling undeserving of any love, but
There's no distance too far, that I can't reach you
There's no place that's so dark, that I can't find you
Anywhere that you are, if you need proof
Take a look at these scars, and know I love you
Doesn't matter, doesn't matter, doesn't matter what you've done
You are never, you are never, never too far gone
Oh ah-oh, ah-oh
You will never outrun my love, my love, my love
You will never outrun my love, my love, my love
You will never outrun my love, my love, my love
You will never outrun my love (you will never outrun my love)
There's no distance too far, that I can't reach you
There's no place that's so dark, that I can't find you
Anywhere that you are, if you need proof
Take a look at these scars, and know I love you
Doesn't matter, doesn't matter, doesn't matter what you've done
You are never, you are never, never too far gone
Oh ah-oh, ah-oh
Never too far gone
Oh ah-oh, ah-oh
Never too far gone
Oh ah-oh, ah-oh


"God, investigate my life;
    get all the facts firsthand.
I’m an open book to you;
    even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking.
You know when I leave and when I get back;
    I’m never out of your sight.
You know everything I’m going to say
    before I start the first sentence.
I look behind me and you’re there,
    then up ahead and you’re there, too—
    your reassuring presence, coming and going.
This is too much, too wonderful—
    I can’t take it all in!"// psalm 139:1-6 (the message)


"The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness."// jeremiah 31:3

"Come now, let us settle the matter," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool."// isaiah 1:18

you're never out of reach of our loving Lover, Jesus. He owns this world and universe. and there's nothing too horrible you have done that He wouldn't forgive if you ask Him. 

so go ahead and ask Him, accept His forgiveness and move on with your wonderful life as His Holy Spirit leads you day by day to live a life of purpose for Him. 

Jesus is awesome! 

He will always find you, no matter where you are, i promise!
stop fighting His love. embrace all of it, darling. :)

music monday// every mile mattered

heyyyaaa! 
i hope you've been doing great! 
today i'm sharing one of nicole nordeman's songs that is so poignant and has totally captured my heart 
these days.

enjoy! 


every mile mattered~ nicole nordeman

Spread the map on the table, with the coffee stain

Put your finger on the places, show me where you've been

Is that California, where your teardrops dried?

You drew a circle around Georgia, can you tell me why?
I see shoulda beens, coulda beens

Written all over your face (your face, your face)

Wrong turns and bridges burned

Things you wanna change
It's history

You can't rewrite it

You're not meant to be trapped inside it

Every tear brought you here

Every sorrow gathered
Yeah, it's history
And every mile mattered
Get the box off the top shelf, with the black and white

Snapshots of your old self, in a better light

Ghosts and regrets back again, I can see it in your eyes

Send them home, let 'em go

Don't you think it’s time? Yeah
It's history

You can't rewrite it

You're not meant to be trapped inside it

Every tear brought you here

Every sorrow gathered
It's history
And every mile
And every road and every bend

Every bruise and bitter end

All you squandered, all you spent

It mattered, it mattered

Mercy always finds a way
To wrap your blisters up in grace
And every highway you'd erase
It mattered, it mattered
But it's history

It don't define you

You're free to leave

It all behind you

Every tear brought you here
Every sorrow gathered
It's history
And every mile mattered
Every mile mattered



"I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." ~ phillipians 4:13

"You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in Your bottle. You have recorded each one in Your book." // psalm 56:8

"Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."// hebrews 4:16
no matter where you have been, no matter what happened, no matter what happened to you, no matter what you wish you did or didn't do, no matter what you wish you said or didnt get to say or chose not to say, every mile you have covered in this life of yours mattered...the good, bad, difficult, horrible, confusing, exhilarating, joyful moments all mesh together in a way that has led you to be where you are now.

every
single
mile
you
have
travelled
mattered

and you my darling, you absolutly matter regadless of how yucky you feel sometimes. :)
here's to a lovely week!

xoxo,
Delali.
