On the note of considering our heart-soil today, here's some lyrics for thought:
Garden (by Claire Cloninger and Kelly Willard)
Plough the field of my heart, plant the seed of your life Let the fruit of Your Spirit grow Try the thoughts of my mind, weed the lies that have grown And leave only the truth I should know
And I will be a garden unto You Where the springs of Your love will flow I will be a garden unto You, Lord Where the fruit of Your Spirit can grow
Flood the dryness in me with Your joy and Your peace And my heart will be new again Let the soil of my life hold the Truth of Your Word And Your Spirit will bloom within
Rooted and grounded in all that You are Filled with Your Spirit The planting of the Lord...
If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourself on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. (Isaiah 58:9-11)
What does the Gardener need to do in each of our hearts?
Hey everyone! It's been a long time since anyone posted here so thought I should try reviving this blog. (:
Well, most of us should have handed in our articles for the next issue of One Voice by now. Cheers for a good end result, yeah? (: I'm sure everyone's worked hard so lets hope our work isnt put to waste! Hahha.
I've been thinking, the One Voice isnt really very active besides for writing articles for magazines. I know Ivfen is planning a meeting for this Saturday, but dontcha think we should be abit more... well yeah active haha. Every time an issue is finished, we tend to just drop the whole thing until we have another article to write. Even the One Voice BLOG is dead! Shouldnt more people be posting and sharing their feelings and stuff? We need to be more bonded and stuff like that. We're not just a committee formed to write a magazine, we're good friends too, joining a committee to share about God and things like that, through writing.
well anyways, after reading elliott's call on the oc blog, i just had a feeling to say some weird stuff, about God and all but um.. i think it'd be a bit weird, (i have no idea why! xD hahahah ) so ANYWAYS, as ariel said, (yes this IS definitely a dead blog) someone should post xD hahahaha owells, i shall be like elliott and just speak my mind although this isn something that the usual rachael would say but HECKKK i think like... you know in camp, where everyone gets like this spiritual high, and like, its really coolio and all, but then everyone's like saying it kinda dies out after a while, its not actually just because like... hey, its camp, stuff like that will happen and all... but its more of the expectancy. 'cos you know like in camp, everyone's so expactant that god will have some breakthrough thingy and all, so there, thats it. its more about the expectancy... cos God will only come when we're expectant... and yeah, stuff like that. go figure
owells, i feel absolutely strange now xD hahahahaha but heck, IM BACK, TO BEIN THE USUAL RETARDED, NOT SANE AND VERY EXTREMELY HIGH RACHAEL WHICH IS SOMETIMES EMO BUT LIKE THREEQUARTERS OF THE QORLD COULDN IMAGINE ME EMO, THAT RACHAEL. YAYNESS
Hello everyone, how are you? Is death a happy thing? No right? So would you please SAVE THE BLOG AND STOP MAKING ME POST ALL THE TIME. >: ( C'mon, cut me some slack here. I'm not some leprechaun that will come and give you a nice big pot of gold if you post though. Nor am I a fairy godmother who will come and resurrect the blog from the ASHES everytime it burns to the ground. No pun intended. YOU GUYS HAVE ALREADY MADE ME POST EVERY SINGLE PICTURE THAT I HAVE. ): Sad case, eh?! NIC! RACH! ELLIOTT! ASH! SHYEN! ANYONE AND EVERYONE, YOU GOTTA HAVE AT LEAST SOMETHING TO POST RIGHT?! Not necessarily pics you know. Anything at all. -------------------------------------------
Cheers to everyone for completing your various assignments and tasks for the One Voice magazine. Had fun, eh? d;P Heres to a successful final result for the magazine!
