Why can't I feel You?
You said You won't leave,
And yes I believe!
But why won't You come near?
Should I be in fear?
Did I displease You, my only Love?

What have I done to separate us?!
Examine my heart, and bring to light
All of the wrongs that have been done tonight.

I confess in my heart...
In the deepest places of me...
Forgive me, Your child...
For I know I am Redeemed.

I confess with my mouth...
Aloud for You to hear...
I know You are crying...
For me to repent...

Now, I am crying for you to draw near.
Forgive me, my God...
Make me righteous in Your eyes.
Give wisdom to this humble child...
I pray! I pray!

Father, please forgive me, I know not what I've done.
Please wash me and fill me with Your Holy, Precious Son.
I may not be the wisest, the strongest, or the bravest...
But I will be a light for Your glory, until all my days are gone.

Forgiveness is so sweet... surrendered at the throne.
My Jesus, My Jesus... Your Light has been shown.
Now, wash me and make me whiter than snow.
Yes, Lord, whiter than snow.

Life recently...

so, there have been some incredibly amazing things happen to me in the past two weeks. All since we got back from the beach. My life has taken a turn I did not see coming. When I dwell on it for too long, my mind starts coming up with crazy scenarios and I get so nervous I want to cry. But the possibilities are endless. and the truth of the matter is: that scares the crap out of me. My life will take an entirely different direction from where I thought God was wanting me to go. I was so sure that this is what He wanted, but now I'm not so sure. My mind is completely confused... I've been thinking too much. Tomorrow, however, will be a day that goes down in my history books. We'll see where God leads me. This honestly makes my cry... I can't believe it... why me? I am so unworthy... I don't deserve this... What do I do? I am so blessed. Jesus rocks my world... He still provides for me, even when I neglect Him. He is my only lover... others will come and go: they have. But He will never leave me! I am His beautiful bride! Someday... someday... :) Give me peace, Lord. All I want is you! "I am so in love with you! There is nothing else I choose! You've stolen my heart!"

sometimes i feel like giving up.
sometimes i do give up.
only God could love me.
sinner that i am.
life is pointless without Him.
why live if God is not God of all gods?
if He were a god i could hold in my hands,
what good would He be as God? 
He is a God who holds me in His hands.
He is mighty and powerful.
majestic, filled with glory.
all glory, honor, power should go to Him.
He is my prayer in the desert.
He is my hope, my strength, my life.
Without Him i am nothing.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
i cannot begin to describe how much i hate being ignored.
it pisses me off like nothing else can.
you call me names, act childish, be ridiculously stubborn.
that's fine. i'll get over it.
you ignore me... dude it's on.
when you ignore me, i take that as a sign of disrespect.
if you respect someone, you will listen to them.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
i want Your heartbeat, Lord
i want to see the things you see
i need to see them
my heart cries out
Lord, Your compassion never fails.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
or selfish?
both, i say.
i'm stubborn in that i refuse to be like everyone else.
you know those northface jackets?
i will never own one of them.
everyone has one.
i don't want to be like everyone.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
the definition of compassion in the dictionary should be 
that is the story of His life
i don't understand, how He did it
He died an ugly death for people who would hate Him
why would He do that?
He has compassion on man-kind
blows my mind
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
i believe in giving everyone the benefit of the doubt
Christ gives second chances, third chances, fourth chances, etc
shouldn't i?
i refuse to make snap judgements based solely
on what i see on the surface
there is ALWAYS more than what meets the eye
i have learned from experience
who i am to act like i know everything?
ha. i am stupid
who am i?
kelly ann bean
but loved.
and because i'm loved
i become significant

Wrote this about 7 months ago. July 15, 2008.

when my world starts crashing in

and everything that is familiar to me dissapeares

when everyone just doesn't understand

everything that's important to me.

When I become overloaded...

all I can do is look to Jesus.

He is the calm in my storm.

He is the peace in this crazy world.

all I can do is fall on my knees and just simply trust Him...

Bursting with Joy.

if you just open your eyes, you'll see God in every thing that happens in your life. When you look for Him, you see His blessings EVERYWHERE! On my way to class today it was POURING rain. I prayed and asked God to stop the rain just long enough for me to walk to class without getting drenched. I also asked Him to open up a parking place CLOSE. Guess what? The rain stopped BEFORE I got there, and I spotted a place to park as I was driving up. I know you might be thinking, "Kelly, that's ridiculous." But I don't believe in coincidences, I believe that God can move this earth whichever way He pleases, and His timing is perfect for His children. :) I love my Jesus.

Late night thought.

I was thinking, "I don't understand..." What don't I understand? I don't understand how some people are so easily accepted and other's aren't. Why is it that the pretty face is soon everyone's best friend? What about the other girl? The girl with all the passion and authenticity, works her butt off, does her job, and does not always speak aloud her feelings, but is so eager to be a friend. Why is she always the last to form a friendship? And why do even those friendships have some distance in them? And that is what led to this: 

"Why should I even bother loving someone and showing them the love of Christ if I'm only going to be rejected? Why put myself through that?" God just gave me this simple answer. (He's cool like that). Look what Jesus went through. He knew He would be rejected. He knew who would accept Him as Lord and who wouldn't. That didn't stop Him. He still died on the cross: for the world, and for the men who hammered the nails into his hands and feet. He still loved them. He still reached out to them. He still died for them, knowing they would kill Him.

Thought for the day.

This confu​ses me. Why do peopl​e care if Jessi​ca Simps​on gaine​d weigh​t or not. God forbi​d she actua​lly weigh​ anyth​ing.​ She has to be a tooth​pick.​ No wonde​r so many girls​ have eatin​g disor​ders.​ Stupi​d media​.​ Who cares​?​

Look through the window. 
What do you see?
Look again!
Tell me what do you see?!
Same window.
Different days.
Isn't everyone?
Is there judgement?
I look through the window!
I see the same things!
Don't you?
Me. You.
Exactly the same.
So look through my window.
What do you see?
A heart that is struggling.
Day in.
Day out.
Knows the Lord's love.
But ignores His commands.
Listens to the devil's whispers.
Falls into the trap.
Remembers her first love.
Falls in to embrace the Father.
Restoration in her heart.
Up and down.
My life.
For you to see.

Nor does he turn back from the sword. The quiver rattles against him, 
the glittering spear and javelin. He devours the distance with fierceness and rage."
~Job 39:21-24~

You're the Lord of this nation. - Greater things have yet to come.

You belong with your love on your arm. You belong somewhere you feel free.

Marines don't have that problem." - Ronald Reagan

that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord."

AOL Headline 1/8/09

Obama​ Issue​s Dire Warni​ng
Prepa​res Ameri​cans for the Futur​e
'​Could​ Becom​e Drama​tical​ly Worse​'​

hmm. I find this sligh​tly ironi​c,​ no?

anywh​o,​ "​Presi​dent-​elect​ Barac​k Obama​ warne​d of dire and lasti​ng conse​quenc​es if Congr​ess doesn​'​t pump unpre​ceden​ted dolla​rs into the econo​my"​

if I'm remem​berin​g corre​ctly,​ from my econo​mics class​,​ this won'​t help one littl​e bit.

What crack​s me up is this poll.​ I know these​ thing​s don'​t reall​y depic​t the actua​l opini​ons of a lot of Ameri​cans,​ but it does somew​hat portr​ay a small​ perce​ntage​ of their​ opini​ons.​

"How much faith​ do you have in the incom​ing Obama​ admin​istra​tion to turn the econo​my aroun​d?​
A lot 35%
A littl​e 34%
None at all 31%
Total​ Votes​:​ 218,​756"​

These​ are the peopl​e who voted​ him into offic​e to help our econo​my and their​ confi​dence​ in his abili​ty to do somet​hing about​ it is split​ 3 ways.​ We can round​ it off and say 33% for each group​.​ Reall​y?​ All that talk about​ how Barac​k Obama​ was going​ to "​save"​ our natio​n from it's horri​ble demis​e,​ and of these​ peopl​e who took this poll,​ we only have 33% who reall​y and truly​ think​ that he can fix the econo​my!​ Well.​ I've said it befor​e,​ and I'll say it again​.​ Ameri​cans are so dedgu​m fickl​e!​ We chang​e our minds​ every​ 5 minut​es.​ This is proof​ of it. It's also proof​ that Ameri​cans don'​t know anyth​ing about​ gover​nment​.​ It's proof​ that no one knows​ their​ const​ituti​on and their​ right​s as well as they think​ they do. It's proof​ that they would​ rathe​r have the gover​nment​ care for them - leadi​ng to a Socia​listi​c Ameri​ca.​ And they will blind​ly get there​.​ It's the blind​ leadi​ng the blind​.​ The few peopl​e who actua​lly know how our gover​nment​ is suppo​sed to run, tend to be Conse​rvati​ves.​ And every​one is fed with us! So no one will liste​n.​

Anywa​ys,​ thoug​ht I would​ post a littl​e comme​ntary​.​ =)

have a good day!

Did Alice In Wonderland scare you when you were little? Cuz let's just say, that was not my favorite movie when I was little! =)

Thursday, January 1, 2009


I have learned a lot about myself this year. I'm finally not ashamed of my candor. I am not afraid to speak up. I am finally coming back to the place where I am as transparent as plastic wrap. =) I have learned to not let people shove me back to second place. My ideas, talents, opinions... are worth being heard. I will no longer let myself fall into that pit where I become lost. Lost to myself. There is only one place where I am me. There is only one place where I am not ridiculed or condemned for my actions. I no longer have to be insulted, humiliated, and disrespected into submission. God didn't create me to become a mistake. He created me to become a conqueror. I have made my decision. I have chosen my path. Now, it's time to follow that path and see where God takes me on it. 2008 is the past. 2009 is now my present. I will not allow the devil to use my circumstances, the people I'm around, media, or any other thing to separate me from my purpose.
