Weekly DOH Thrift Store Update

 Hello There, 

   It is hard to know where to start, so many things have happened in my life lately. This weekend I had the privilege of attending the Youth Alive Conference in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The title for the weekend was “Be the Change”. One of the speakers used this quote by Lao Tzu: “If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.” <- This definitely caught my attention and made me ponder the direction my choices are taking me. Am I willing to be changed myself so that Christ in me can change the world?  God is also teaching me that whether I feel something or not doesn’t make it Truth. It is Truth because He says it is. I am His daughter, well beloved of Him. He is in me,and I in Him.

    I heard a song for I think the first time this weekend, and I thought about it. It wasn’t ever about the storms in my life; it is about my relationship with Jesus that is strengthened through the blessings and storms that I go through in life. At the end of the day, I want my heart to look like His. He has promised to take my heart and give me His (Ezekiel 36:25-28).

“It never was about the oil dripping from my head;
I never did dream beyond the pastures I could tend.
It never was about the praise, not about the street parade;
I didn’t really need a crowd when Goliath fell down.

I never meant to woo a king with simple shepherd songs
Or hide away inside a cave, safe from danger’s arms.
I never meant to wear a crown or try to bring armies down;
It never was about me and who I hoped to be.

At the end of the day I wanna hear people say
My heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart.
When the world looks at me, let them agree
That my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart.

I never thought I would be much more than Jesse’s kin;
Who would ever dream a king would come from Bethlehem?
I know that I’ve crashed and burned, their lives have been overturned,
But You redeem everything, yeah, even me.

At the end of the day I want to hear people say
That my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart.
When the world looks at me, I pray all they see
Is my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart.

Five little stones or a royal robe,
Shepherd or king doesn’t mean a thing
‘Cause at the end of the day…

At the end of the day I wanna hear people say
That my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart.
Unashamed I will dance, in Your name, lift my hands
‘Til my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart.

Like Your heart
Like Your heart
Till this heart looks like Your heart”
