My adventure in becoming a [Good] Mormon

Mildly ironic

Blessed be Your name
In the land that is plentiful
Where your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name

And blessed be Your name
When I’m found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed be Your name

[Pre-Chorus:]
Every blessing You pour out
I’ll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

[Chorus:]
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

And blessed be Your name
When the sun’s shining down on me
When the world’s ‘all as it should be’
Blessed be Your name

And blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there’s pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord blessed be Your name

I will bless Your name, Lord

[Solo]

[Pre-Chorus (Rebecca only)]

[Chorus (2x)]
Oh, You give and take away
You give and take away
But my heart will choose to say (oh Lord!)
Blessed be Your name
You give and take away
You give and take away
But my heart will choose to say (oh Lord!)
Blessed be Your name

Bolded my favourite verses for you.

I’ve found it mildly ironic; I’m losing (or maybe not, I dunno, time is still needed) something I swore I never would lose and yet, I am staying strong in something that’s pretty much new to me; my faith. Most intriguing.

Stake conference today.

And why are you so dang positive? I don’t get it.

I can only imagine

I can only imagine
What it will be like
When I walk
By your side

I can only imagine
What my eyes will see
When your face
Is before me
I can only imagine

I can only imagine

[Chorus:]
Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel
Will I dance for you Jesus or in awe of you be still
Will I stand in your presence or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all

I can only imagine

I can only imagine

I can only imagine
When that day comes
When I find myself
Standing in the Son

I can only imagine
When all I will do
Is forever
Forever worship You
I can only imagine

I can only imagine

[Chorus]

I can only imagine [x2]

I can only imagine
When all I will do
Is forever, forever worship you

I can only imagine

Funny how what I fasted for today pretty much took place almost instantly after Church today ^_^

If we are the body

It’s crowded in worship today
As she slips in trying to fade into the faces
The girl’s teasing laughter is carrying farther than they know
Farther than they know

But if we are the body
Why aren’t His arms reaching?
Why aren’t His hands healing?
Why aren’t His words teaching?
And if we are the body
Why aren’t His feet going?
Why is His love not showing them there is a way?
There is a way

A traveler is far away from home
He sheds his coat and quietly sinks into the back row
The weight of their judgemental glances
Tells him that his chances are better out on the road

Jesus payed much too high a price
For us to pick and choose who should come
And we are the body of Christ

Jesus is the way

This song does have an intriguing point. And it completely ties into Sunday’s Sacrament talks. I’m not gonna write too much on it, you take from it what you will…

Another happy-sad song

Kind of sad in a way, but it describes some stuff perfectly for me. Well, I guess not sad, more of an acceptance of how it is I guess. Which is sort of sad, but not really.

You and I were friends from outer space
Afraid to let go
The only 2 who understood this place
And as far as we know
We were way before our time
As bold as we were blind
Just another perfect mistake
Another bridge to take
On the way of letting go,

This ain’t goodbye
This is just where love goes
When words aren’t warm enough to keep away the cold
This ain’t goodbye
It’s not where our story ends
But I know you can’t be mine, not the way you’ve always been
As long as we’ve got time
Then this ain’t goodbye
Oh no, this ain’t goodbye

We were stars up in the sunlit sky
No one else could see
Neither of us ever thought to ask why
It wasn’t meant to be
Maybe we were way too high
To ever understand
Maybe we were victims of all the foolish plans
We began to devise

Ignore vid, just listen

Or laugh at the vid

 

A Wild World

 

SaHtaH quv…

Jalapeños make subway exciting. I find it hilarious that every time I bite one, I am caused intense pain, enough to actually cause a vocal reaction. It’s like Russian Roulette for the taste buds. Tasty suicide…mmmm…

Anyways, back to the topic at hand. My bestie is, once again, the ever-pestering conscience and just helped get everything back into perspective, which is good. I came to realize I was trying something out that most of me, mentally, was opposed to anyways and that, standard-wise, was far below my own. I quite possibly would have regretted it anyways. I also, once again, re-re-re-realized: Oblivious Cass is, extraordinarily, oblivious and both trusts too easily and assumes that everyone is as good as my experience, which is completely biased and nearly non-existent, dictates.

Anyways, in short; I am going back to being extraordinarily selective and living in a mental nunnery until further notice.

Oh and also, I Mormon-swear too much; it’s becoming a bad habit and at risk of becoming worse, so the slap-rule has been re-instituted, which, honestly is for the better. So if you see my bestie randomly smacking me, is all ok ;D.
