Arise 

An Army is rising

All over the earth

They’re marching as One

United by His love

They have been sanctified and purified

With God’s heartbeat

They will take the land

No enemy will stand

Coming out of hiding

Ready for the Battle

We have been prepared 

in the Secret Place

Our King and Commander, 

Leading the way

We will go, wherever He leads us

Trained in the worst conditions

We know that the battle 

has already been won

The kingdom of darkness 

will have to retreat

For our Commander, 

never loses a battle

I see chains falling 

I see battle’s won

We can’t be stopped

His glory will be seen

All over the earth

As His army arises

To take their place

The Sound Of Surviving 


Nichole Nordeman’s new song is amazing! 
Listen here now on #SongSunday.
~ XXOO Michelle Bollom

‘They told me

I’d never get to tell my story

Too many bullet holes

It would take a miracle
These voices

Inside my head like poison

Trying to steal my hope

Silencing my soul
But my story is only now beginning

Don’t try to write my ending

Nobody gets to sing my song
This is the sound of surviving

This is my farewell to fear

This is my whole heart deciding

I’m still here, I’m still here

And I’m not done fighting

This is the sound of surviving
These pieces 

The ones that left me bleeding

Intended for my pain

Became the gift You gave me

I gathered those pieces into a mountain

My freedom is in view

I’m stronger than I knew
And this hill is not the one I die on

I’m going to lift my eyes and

I’m going to keep on climbing
I’m still here

Say it to the ache, lying there awake

Say it to your tears

I’m still here 

Say it to the pain, say it to the rain

Say it to your fear
This is the sound of surviving

This is my farewell to fear

This is my whole heart deciding

I’m still here, I’m still here
And I’m not done fighting

No, I’m not done fighting

And I am still rising

Rising, I’m still rising

And I’m not done fighting

This is the sound of surviving
.I’m still here

Say it to the ache, lying there awake

Say it to your tears

I’m still here 

Say it to the pain, say it to the rain

Say it to your fear
This is the sound of surviving

This is my farewell to fear

This is my whole heart deciding

I’m still here, I’m still here
And I’m not done fighting

No, I’m not done fighting

And I am still rising

Rising, I’m still rising
And I’m not done fighting

This is the sound of surviving’

Flawsome


There are junk heaps and garbage dumps filled with many irreparable things deemed beyond restoration; but there are no irreparable pasts or people in God’s eyes.  
                 He sets all things right.
                He is the Great Restorer!

               He thinks you’re Flawsome.

And they shall be called The Holy People, The Redeemed of the Lord; and you shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken. ~ Isaiah 62:12 ESV 

“Listen to me, all you who are serious about right living and committed to seeking God. Ponder the rock from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were dug. Yes, ponder Abraham, your father, and Sarah, who bore you. Think of it! One solitary man when I called him, but once I blessed him, he multiplied. Likewise I, God, will comfort Zion, comfort all her mounds of ruins. I’ll transform her dead ground into Eden, her moonscape into the garden of God, A place filled with exuberance and laughter, thankful voices and melodic songs. “Pay attention, my people. Listen to me, nations. Revelation flows from me. My decisions light up the world. My deliverance arrives on the run, my salvation right on time. I’ll bring justice to the peoples. Even faraway islands will look to me and take hope in my saving power. Look up at the skies, ponder the earth under your feet. The skies will fade out like smoke, the earth will wear out like work pants, and the people will die off like flies. But my salvation will last forever, my setting-things-right will never be obsolete. ~ Isaiah 51:1-6 MSG 

Living The Good Life 

 I think we all have favorite scriptures in the Bible that we like to read. We all have a favorite version of the Bible. I would like to share a scripture out of the Amplified version.

I got so excited when I first read this verse from the Amplified version. Actually, it still excites me everytime I read it!

Ephesians 2:10 “For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]”.

 Can you see why I get excited? 

God has a plan for each of us. (See Jeremiah 29:11). He has a plan for us to do good works (that He planned beforehand.)
He has a path for us to walk- one that He prepared ahead of time. When we are walking down that path and doing those good works, we get to live the good life that He made ready for us to live.

Everyone of us have to take time to find out from God what that plan is. We have to find out what those good works are. In addition to what the Bible says we are to do, those good works can be writing, singing, writing songs, being in Ministry, having a business, etc..
Seek God and He will show you exactly what that plan is. He will show you step by step. 

He shows you the first step, so take it! 

Then wait for the next step. 

Don’t run out ahead of Him, it doesn’t work! 

Been there, done that….another post!

When you are in the plan of God and walking the path He has for you, you’ll be able to see the fruit of it and you will see what a blessing it is Living the Good Life

Ground Your Hope 


Gound your hope in the Eternal. For in the Eternal lives the most loyal love, and with Him comes the most abundant redemption. ~ Psalm 130:7 VOICE 

                         What a promise!

Set Free 

I looked at her

Her past written all over her face

No joy

No peace

No love

Her face reflects the pain she endured, 

for as long as she can remember

A life full of hurt

Scars not healed

Her heart still bound by chains

Her body bowed low by shame

No one took the time to 

pause by her for a while

She is not free to embrace 

the future luring her in

He whispers her name

Ever so gently

He knows she is bruised 

in so many ways

She does not know her worth

How precious she is

How deeply she is loved

She listened for too long to the 

voice of the enemy

Numbing her

Holding her captive

Ruling her heart and her mind

Keeping her bound in the past

She was made to slay giants

She was made to gain ground

She was made to face her fears

She was made to win each battle 

coming her way

I walk past many of her kind

All with a story of hurt and betrayal

But I never stop to linger for a while

What would people say if I, 

a godly women keep company 

with the wrong crowd

I forgot I was her not too long ago

Trapped in my mind, heart and soul

Ruled by fear and not freedom

Ruled by hate and not love

Ruled by the ghosts of my past, 

that would not let me go

Till someone looked past my mask 

into my eyes

Saw the pain I try to hide

Took me in and showed me 

that the love of the Father 

can forever change my story

Now when I look at her

I see the glory of God covering her

His love radiates from her

She lights up when she 

shares her story of freedom 

and discovering His

all consuming love for her

His love had the power 

to rewrite her story

She discovered herself when she found Him

She laid her past down to be One with Him

She carries the fragrance of heaven 

wherever she goes

His name is engraved on her lips

She now works for her King

Gathering His hurting daughters 

to experience His redeeming love for them

To be Set Free

Joy Over Thee 

One time a few years back I was studying the subject of Joy. Joy is one of my favorite fruits of the Spirit. (See Galatians 5:22-23).

 I came across a scripture in the old Testament that I didn’t notice before. It’s Zephaniah 3:17. 

It says, “The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty: he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy: he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”

 Joy means to rejoice, to be glad, to exult. 
We read in the Bible many scriptures regarding us singing praises to God. 

We serve an awesome God, but it amazes me to realize that He rejoices over us with singing! 

Doesn’t that just bless your heart? It does mine!

God, the Creator of the universe, the One that spoke this world into existence, joys over us! With singing!! I want you to think about that; Imagine God, singing over you. Rejoicing over YOU! 

It just makes me happy thinking about it.
To me this is a reminder of God’s great love that He has for us.

God is for us, He isn’t against us.

Don’t let anyone tell you different.

In God’s Love,

Tracy Mason
