holding nothing back

Behind this curtain there is a heart that's hurting.
It's been taking a beating. It's starting to fall apart.
And I feel like such an easy target. Dodging bullets, I'm exhausted.
How can every moment be this hard?
I'm holding nothing back from you.
Doesn't really matter what I lose.
Got a heart that's open. I'm broken and I want you to know
Jesus, I don't want anything coming in between you and me.
Jesus, it doesn't matter what I have to go through.
I'm holding nothing back, nothing back from you.


I've got a list that goes on and on.
It's overflowing with memories of everything that I've been doing wrong
And I'll be the first to say, I've chased after so many foolish things looking for a
way to kill the pain.
Oh, I'm holding nothing back from you.
Doesn't really matter what I lose.
Got a heart that's open. I'm broken and I want you to know.
Jesus, I don't want anything coming in between you and me.
Jesus, it doesn't matter what I have to go through.
I'm holding nothing back, nothing back from you.


I try to do the right things.
Why am I struggling day to day with these same old things?
Whatever's taking your place, I'm getting out of the way.
I'm getting out of the way.
Jesus, I don't want anything coming in between...
Jesus, I'll do what I gotta do.
I'm holding nothing back, back from you.
Jesus, I don't want anything coming in between you and me.
Jesus, it doesn't matter what I have to go through.
I'm holding nothing back, nothing back from you.
-Holding Nothing Back by Ryan Stenenson


We all go through battles and tests. Spiritual battles or emotional battles of doubt, fear, unworthiness, battles with siblings, parents, battles with yourself and just life in general. Its hard going through those times and one top being a teenager! Life can seem totally out of whack one day and other days life feels perfect. This song is just what I needed today. I know deep in my heart I'm not alone, Jesus is with me just when I need Him. As my mom says "A teacher is always quite during a test." Maybe God is just being quite during my tests and battles, but I can know He is there even though it may not feel that way.

Indescribable

It feels like summer here and its only spring. The air is so clear, and the sky is so blue. I love summer.


 I started planing in my flowerbed by our garden shed. Tonight I planted some sunflower seeds<3

Books and Reading Tag: A Book Challenge

Hey y'all!
This challenge was created by Noor at her lovely blog, A Little Bit of Sunshine. I love book tags so much so I thought I would give it a try:)

Rules:
You must answer all the questions
Repost the picture with a link to Noors blog and the persons blog who tagged you
You may tag people if you would like, but it isn't required

1. To be read in April?
I am working on reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and A Light in the Window by Jan Karon.

2. Book series you would like to see as a movie?
I would like to see Life of Faith Series made into a movie.

3. Overhyped book/author?
Behind the Attic Wall by Sylvia Cassidy. This book was really awful actually. It was weird, and just not a book that I would recommend if you know what I mean:)

4.  The best book series you have ever read?
The Prairie Legacy by Janette Oke all the way!

5. Book to movie adaption that was really bad?
I can't think of one right now. I don't ever know if I have watched a book movie adaption that was really bad.

6. Books that made you cry
The Book Thief. Yes, I stayed up reading it until midnight on the night I finished it. I laid their and sobbed. Embarrassing, but true. The Help by Kathryn Stockett also jerked a few tears from my eyes at the end :)

7 Book you are reading at the moment. Give it a quick rating
A Light in the Window by Jan Karon. It the second book in the Mitford series, and if you have never read these, start now! Read about them here!

8. Book series that you just didn't like
Um, The Redwall series. I only read about one chapter of the first book (its not a small series I I know) and I didn't really like it. I haven't read the whole thing so I can't really judge if its good, but its just not the type of book I like to read:)

9. Book that you haven't read yet, but really need to?
School books. Those are the only books I need to read:)

Come up with your own question!

My question.....
On a scale of one to five how avid of a book reader are you?
1. Love to read! I read whenever I can get my hands on a book!
2. Reading is awesome, but its only something I do every few days.
3. Reading is enjoyable for me, but I go in spurts of reading all the time and not reading.
4. Reading is ok, but not my favorite thing to do
5. I detest book and only read them if I have to for school

I tag:

Lauren from Loving Our Creator
Christine from Everything is Blogsome
And anyone else who wants to do it! <3

I'm also thinking about doing a survey. I have seen lots of other bloggers do one, and I think its a pretty good idea.I don't know if my posts are interesting enough so I want to get more feedback on how my blog is doing from your guys prospective:) Talk to y'all later! <3

G'night
