The Broken are Becoming the Chosen

“Hope Will Lead us On” by Barlow Girl

(Verse 1)
Rise up again
Shake off the shadows
Unlock the doors
and let hope live once more
Cause up from the ashes
oh the fire is woken
Cause those who were broken,
are becoming the chosen

So lift up your eyes
Cause we’re not forgotten
And hope will lead us on
Oh we pray for the dawn
and we reach for the mornin’
And hope will lead us on

(Verse 2)
Come let us see
Beyond these moments
Open our eyes, to to see the truth that You see
Cause all that we know now
When You’re all we hold to
You can’t disappoint us, it’s safe here with You

So lift up your eyes
Cause we’re not forgotten
And hope will lead us on
Oh we pray for the dawn
and we reach for the mornin’
And hope will lead us on

And hope will lead us on
And hope will lead us on
And hope will lead us on


Ready to “Flangiprop”?


Invent a definition for the word “flangiprop,” then use the word in a post. 

Flangiprop:  What happens when you spontaneously break out in dance; and then get so dizzy spinning around that you fall down and hit the wall!

The funny thing is I went to Google to see if this really was a word, and all you see are our posts!  I guess it’s a word now!

Diana was found flangiproping today, after listening to random music. She better settle down, its almost time to go to work!

Here’s some fun choices if you’d like to join me….

Yep, I know I need help….Here’s hoping you are dancing today! 🙂

Jesus the Anointed One

Jesus, the Anointed One
© 2012 Diana Rasmussen

He is Father to the fatherless,
Protector of the weak.
He is Husband to the forsaken,
Defender of the meek.

He is Provision for the widow,
Freedom for the slave.
He is Justice for the oppressed,
Deliverance for the captive.

Jesus, The Anointed One,
He is Jesus the Anointed One,
God in our midst.
He is Jesus the Anointed One.

He is Shepherd to the lost one,
Healing to the sick.
He is grace, mercy, and righteousness,
His Kingdom has no end.

He is comfort to the broken heart,
Counselor to the accused.
He is Prince of Peace in the storm,
He is the King of Kings.

Repeat Chorus

True Beauty

Yes, you believe in God, but do you believe in yourself?  It’s not what YOU say to me that I am worried about, it’s what I say to me.

Check out this video from Dove on True Beauty.

I have to be honest, when I look in the mirror, it’s not always the most positive thing that I’m thinking.  I’ve had some changes…after having four children, umpteen “girl” surgeries, and a broken leg this year, I’m not really in the best shape – physically.  How come I can’t look like I was when I was 18?  You know that girl is still in there!

That got me thinking, how do I define beauty? Well, it has it has changed over the years.  I used to think it was a physical thing, how skinny I was, etc.  I know, kinda shallow, but that’s how it is when  you are young. And let’s face it, the media doesn’t help.  Talk about unrealistic expectations! Hence the video…

So, I guess my definition has changed.  It’s funny, once you redefine something, you see things differently.  So yes, today I doing my best not to criticize what God has made – me… God doesn’t make junk.  He saw what He had made, and God called it good.  And you are beautiful too!


 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful,  I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:14-16 NIV

“Charm and grace are deceptive, and beauty is vain [because it is not lasting], but a woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, she shall be praised”  Proverbs 31:31 AMP

“One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness] of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple.” Psalm 27:4 AMP


Dear Lord,

Help us change how we think about ourselves.  We have believed so many lies.  Lies from the enemy, from people who have hurt us, and just plain lies.  We speak the truth over ourselves today, Your Truth…

We are fearfully and wonderfully made!  As we come to You in the secret place, replace the lies with the truth of Your Word.  We were made in Your image, and we know You are beautiful!  Help us receive it Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

The Spirit of the Lord

Rejoicing in the Word with Isaiah 61.

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,

To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;

To comfort all who mourn,
To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”
