you get the idea.... i feel sooooooo good. I highly recommend a week of all of the above. On my time off I got a chance to make stuff using the SIS Classic collection. The above layout is pretty much my favorite of them. Why? Well, because it's a special prayer I love. Comes from the song by Hillsong: "Came To The Rescue". It evokes so much emotion, belief,faith inside of me that I just want to be lifted. I forget about my pressures. My thoughts. My life issues. They seem to disappear when I hear/sing these words. My life is a life of worship. Humble. Secured by faith, hope and love. I believe that power and feel strengthened every time. This is my emergency prayer. When there is nothing. nothing to say. to feel. nowhere to hide. no focus. when i feel blurry and heavy and consumed. I ask for fire. a flame. a burning passion.back into my life, the art, the talent, the body, the mind, the heart. I want to be consumed by Him. I want people to know i believe and live for more than myself. more than just for making stuff. more than just showing up for a 9-5. And before this restful week I felt just.like.that.

i call... you answer...and you came to my rescue and i wanna be where you are.
consume me from the inside out...
i cannot ask that enough. what would the world be like if we all burned with a passion? that would be a sight.

close your eyes and just listen. I love playing this song. LOVE it. except when i play the drums i can't lift my hands. but it's still amazing.

i wanna burn baby :) passionate about life, love and my faith.
and thank you for leaving some beautiful messages while I was away. Man, I really really am blessed by you ladies. I missed you. like a lot. :) I've got lots to share with you so I'll be back!

loved and blessed,
d

Hi! I stumbled on your stuff on SIS and have been so inspired by you as of late. I saw the lifted lo on SIS last week and made one very similar with the song by planet shakers "healer". Thanks for the inspiration! Your heart for the Lord is awesome and so evident. Thanks!

"i wanna burn baby"

have i ever shared my fave quote with you?

check it:

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars. -- Jack Kerouac
