“Y” is for You Found Me. You Say & You Were Loved

#AtoZChallenge “Y”

Often when mired down in the chronic pain, manic episodes and just feeling like crud I am reminded by my love for God and Christ that I was found and I thank them and remind them that You Found Me  as sung by Mercy Me!!

 

 

When each of us begin to fell less that, or that we will always have to struggle through whatever life is throwing at us, just take a listen to this awesome song by Lauren Daigle, You Say!!

 

Finally this song by Wynona Judd that was sung by her in an episode of Touched By An Angel says it best and I will say that for all of you bloggers that have participated in this #AtoZChallenge, I have loved hopping and reading your posts as a participant myself. Thank you for your visiting my blog as well and always remember You and Your Writings Were Loved!!!!

That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage”, thanks for stopping by!!

“V” is for Victorious

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary blogging from A to Z challenge letter V

#AtoZ Challenge “V”

With my God’s help and the love of family friends, I will ALWAYS be VICTORIOUS!!!!!

If You could send a burning bush to Moses

Lead Your people home through a parted sea

Give a boy the strength

to defeat Goliath

I know You will always take care of me

CHORUS

With You on my side

I am victorious

With You on my side

I’ve got nothing to fear

So I can walk through this valley

With confidence

Knowing You will deliver me

CHORUS

If You could raise the dead bones of Lazarus

If You could feed five-thousand

With a couple fish and a loaf of bread

And in the middle of a stormy night

You can walk on water

I know, I know, I know

nothing’s out of Your hands

CHORUS

If You could pull me out of my sin

And give me new life within

And keep all Your promises

And Your Word is true then

I don’t have to be afraid

I know this is the day you made

So no matter what comes my way

CHORUS

“T” is for “TAKE”

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary blogging from A to Z challenge letter

#AtoZChallenge “T”

Everyday that I wake up and don’t just come to, I am always reminded that I need to Take a Little Time to be so grateful for all that my God has created, especially all of the wonderful things in nature. I love the spring when all of my trees and flowers in my yard start gaining their brand new leaves. I love when I walk the four-legged babies along the San Antonio River and see all of the geese, ducks, turtles, fish and even snakes out enjoying their natural environment. I also need to take the time to thank God for all my blessing and even my chastisements.   Jeremy Camp’s song Take a Little Time  is a great reminder!!

 

And then in those times when my or anyone’s manic episodes are on the rise and the depression is trying to creep in with those stinking thinking thoughts of want to drink or use, I need to also remember that God always will Take You Back  also by  Jeremy Camp!!!

“S” is for “Spoken For”

#AtoZChallenge “S”

I love it when I am reminded that my heart and soul are indeed spoken for. Even though I may have my struggles, I know that my God has my back because my heart has been Spoken For. Please enjoy Spoken For by Mercy Me!!

Try as I might I could not find an official audio,lyric or music video for this song, however I like this particular YouTube video of the song.

“R” is for Recovery, Revival & Remembering

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary blogging from A to Z challenge letter R

#AtoZChallenge

So today I am playing catch up on my #AtoZChallenge because I have been a little under the weather and recovering after having my remaining 9 teeth removed last Wednesday 4/17/19 to make room for a whole mouth of new pearly white dentures. I was in a bit of pain and extremely tired since I have been unable to eat any substantially filling food for over a week. Today I will be posting for R, S, T, U, V, W and X and I will be caught up.

Recovery for me is such an important topic. Currently I am recovering from dental surgery and I can feel my mouth healing and I am so glad for that. This means we will be on our way to getting my dentures in a quicker fashion that we thought. So I am extremely happy for the work that my dentist did.

The other part of RECOVERY for me as is known through my writings is from alcoholism and addiction to cocaine. You see, recovery is never a one and done. Anyone who tells you that is is delusional. I do suffer from chronic relapse disease with returns to recovery. Today I share with two songs about recovery from addiction.  You Found Me  by The Fray and I Surrender  by  Hillsong United.

 

When I think of  REVIVAL, there is nothing greater to me than going to Mass and receiving Communion and being reminded that this Sacrament is exactly that a revival for my body and soul for that 24 hour period!! For your enjoyment Revival by Zach Williams!!

We all can use a bit of remembering that we are special  no matter what is going on in our lives. We also need to remember that we are loved and we must always love ourselves and make sure that if we are in need of assistance with any type of addiction or mental health issue that it can be found if we want it. We must remember that we will not change if we do not truly want to change!!! I give you Remember by Lauren Daigle!!

“P” is for Press On, Power to Redeem and Perfect Love

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary blogging from A to Z challenge letter P

#AtoZChallenge – “P”

Yesterday the extraction of my remaining nine teeth went well for the most part. It took a bit longer because five of the nine did what my teeth have always done when being extracted, they broke. Yesterday and today I have been resting and taking plenty of ibuprofen and Tylenol #3 as directed.

The letter “P” is a perfect letter for today as I am reminded of three important things!

1)  No matter what has gone on in my life or even what may happen on a daily basis, it is so important to Press On as Building 429 sings!!!

2) My God and his Son Jesus Christ has that all perfect Power to Redeem as Lauren Daigle tells us!!!

3) The last and most important thing to remember during this Holy Week is that God had a Perfect Love for every single one of us regardless of your faith, as Jeremy Camp sings about.

That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage”, thanks for stopping by!!!
