What I Want to Do:


 
My Page Billboard
I am the only one to blame for this. Somehow it all ends up the same. Soaring on the wings of selfish pride, I flew too high and like Icarus I collide with a world I try so hard to leave behind. To rid myself of all but love, to give and die. To turn away and not become another nail to pierce the skin of One who loves more deeply than the ocean, more abundant than the tears of a world embracing every heartache.

Can I be the one to sacrifice? Oh, grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow.

(To love You...)
Take my world apart.
(To need You...)
I am on my knees.
(To love You...)
Take my world apart.
(To need You...)
Broken, on my knees.

All said and done, I stand alone among remains of a life I should not own. It takes all I am to believe in the Mercy that covers me.

...did You really have to die for me? All I am, for all You are...'cause what I need and what I believe are worlds apart.

I look beyond the empty cross, forgetting what my life has cost, and wipe away the crimson stains, and dull the nails that still remain. More and more, I need You now, I owe You more each passing hour...the battle between grace and pride, I gave up not so long ago so steal my heart and take the pain, wash my feet and cleanse my pride. Take the selfish, take the weak and all the things I cannot hide...take the beauty, take the tears, this sin-soaked heart and make it Yours. Take my world all apart, take it now...take it now and serve the ones that I despise, speak the words I can't deny. I watch the world I used to love fall to dust and blow away.

Take my world apart.
Take my world apart.
I pray. I pray.

Worlds Apart - Jars of Clay







I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me, and I enjoy an accolade like the rest. You can take my picture and hang it in a gallery of all the "who's who" and so-and-so's that used to be the best at such-and-such...it wouldn't matter much. I won't lie, it feels alright to see your name in lights, we all need an 'atta boy' or 'atta girl'...but in the end I'd like to hang my hat on more besides the temporary trappings of this world.

I want to leave a legacy. How will they remember me? Did I choose to love? Did I point to You enough to make a mark on things? I want to leave an offering, a child of mercy and grace who blessed Your name unapologetically, and leave that kind of legacy.

I don't have to look too far or to long a while to make a lengthy list of all that I enjoy. It's an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile, where moths and rust, thieves and such will soon enough destroy.

Not well-travelled, not well-read. Not well-to-do, or well-bred. I just want to hear instead, 'Well done, good and faithful one..'

-Nichole Nordeman







He is an awesome God. Truly worthy of the honor and the glory and the words that flow from our mouths like rain from the sky. He is our Redeemer, our Comfort and Shelter and Strength, and I thank Him daily for saving me from who and what I am and was.
