I love the song “Caught in Your Eyes” by Josh Baldwin
I.…I settled for second best.
Settled for emptiness…I settled for lies.
But You…You took apart my chest.
Filled it with holiness…You filled it with life.
Your love is taking.
Th pieces breaking.
From my heart and making them one
I’m caught in Your eyes.…Caught in Your eyes.
Captured and won, coming undone.
Living to die.
Caught in Your eyes…Caught in Your eyes.
Lost in the chase, caught by Your grace.
Given new life…Caught in Your eyes.
You.…You stepped in my hollow heart.
You came to light my dark and open my eyes.
I am wanting much more of You.
Wanting to love You too.
And wanting to fly.
If you were told that you had to jump out of a plane and were handed a parachute, would you take the parachute? In this thought-provoking video from The Skit Guys, Tommy makes the jump between our lives here on earth, the afterlife and the purpose of salvation. -The Skit Guys
God, make Yourself real to me. Transform my life in a mighty way. Change me from who I am today, and make me into who You desire for me to be. I am not perfect. I mess up all of the time. Even though You do not like for me to disobey, You still love me unconditionally. Your love never fails me. Your love is perfect and pure. I can always count on you to be there for me. Even when I let go of your hand, You never let go of mine; Your hand stills holds tight. Thank You for Your love!
Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord;
his going out is sure as the dawn;
he will come to us as the showers,
as the spring rains that water the earth.
In our daily lives, we go through so much pain and struggle. Through trials and tribulation, we forget how important we are to God, and we forget how much God loves us. We put on the weight of the world more and more each day. We let the what others say and think about us define who we are. We neglect to remember who we realy are–who God MADE us to be.
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” -Matthew11:29
REMEMBER: You ARE God’s original masterpeice.
“When God chisels the dead weight out of our lives it can be very painful.” -The Skit Guys

Can a movie change the world? No, but it can move the people who will.
To Save A Life is more than a movie. It’s the difference people can make when they use their influence and time for others — whether in their family, neighborhood, campus, community or world. To Save A Life dares — no, inspires — people to care.
To Save A Life is an indie movie about the real-life challenges of teens and the choices they face.
Ever since Jake Taylor was a kid, he was the type of guy you couldn’t help but like. For Jake, life is good. He has a ton of friends, a basketball scholarship, a hot girlfriend and a really bright future. Not much to get down about, right?
Enter Roger Dawson. He was Jake’s childhood best friend before Jake’s growing popularity pushed him out. Tired of not fitting in and having a place to belong, Roger walks onto campus and, with a gun in his pocket and pain in his heart, makes a tragic move.
Jake is devastated by what Roger has done, and something in him changes. In seeking answers in his own life, one question plagues him the most: Could I have saved him? He finds himself deeply compelled to reach out to kids on the fringe – kids who aren’t viewed as cool enough. But this decision among other things, threatens Jake’s world. He may lose his friends, his scholarship and even his reputation by asking “What do I want my life to be about?”
