But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,  they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31 NIV) Second Fiddle ©2014 Diana Rasmussen Like a rope pulled back and forth in a tug of war Like a soccer ball bounced from head to toe Like a flyaway foul ball in a baseball game His perfect family’s up in flames He’s caught in the middle playing second fiddle Like a chess pawn sacrificed for the King and Queen Like a hail mary pass...

Drowning in Fear – NaPoWriMo Day 12

Have you ever run across someone who blatantly refuses God? Or becomes angry when you come to The Lord? Yeah, me too. Many times the Abuser gets jealous of a woman’s relationship with God and God’s people. They suddenly realize they are not on the throne anymore. The Abuser is not God. No matter how many times he tells you he is. It’s a lie. You can tell this was written from my angry days. From when I wish he would just go away. It is normal to be angry when someone you thought was supposed to love you...

Solid Foundation – NaPoWriMo Day 5

What does a solid foundation do? The Meaning of the Stone But the Master, God, has something to say to this: “Watch closely. I’m laying a foundation in Zion,     a solid granite foundation, squared and true. And this is the meaning of the stone:     a trusting life won’t topple. I’ll make justice the measuring stick     and righteousness the plumb line for the building. A hailstorm will knock down the shantytown of lies,     and a flash flood will wash out the rubble.” (Isaiah 28:17-17 MSG) SOLID FOUNDATION ©by Diana Rasmussen (3/2010)   Solid foundation, I have a solid foundation when the world is falling apart The LORD is my refuge, my rock and salvation I refuse to lose heart I am who He says I am, and I can do what He says I can do I’m a child of God, forgiven and free bought with the blood of Jesus you see I’m righteous and holy and so dearly loved I am who He says I am, and I can do what He says I can do The enemy of God has no hold on me The LORD  my God has all authority His Word is my sword, so I’m taking a stand...

Rainbow Springs – NaPoWriMo Day 4

“Over the heads of the living creatures was something like a dome, shimmering like a sky full of cut glass, vaulted over their heads. Under the dome one set of wings was extended toward the others, with another set of wings covering their bodies. When they moved I heard their wings—it was like the roar of a great waterfall, like the voice of The Strong God, like the noise of a battlefield. When they stopped, they folded their wings. And then, as they stood with folded wings, there was a voice from above the dome over their heads. Above...
