Awake and Alive

I was listening to Awake and Alive by Skillet today ad found it inspiring. I have heard it plenty of times before, but today the words resonated with some of the issues that are going on in my life. I wanted to share in case it resonates with any of you:

I’m at war with the world
And they try to pull me into the dark
I struggle to find my faith
As I’m slipping from your arms…

I’m awake, I’m alive
Now I know what I believe inside
Now it’s my time
I’ll do what I want ’cause this is my life

(Here, right now)
Right here, right now
Stand my ground and never back down
I know what I believe inside
I’m awake, and I’m alive

Of course there are more lyrics, but these stood out to me. It feels victorious, ya know? Like – I am better than these things that have been draining me and I can rise above it and succeed!

These casual photos represent a feeling of peace or victory to me:

  This beach was only accessible by a boat or by a a good 2 hour hike along the Napoli coast in Kauai. It was secluded and perfectly serene – Well worth the hike!

  These flowers grow wild along the cliffs of Laguna Beach, CA. Natural Beauty in fine action!

  Flying in Kauai – no better feeling.

  One with the Ocean! I like to call this one Poseidon 🙂

  This just makes me smile. Off to side was a massive drop down the Napoli coast mountains. Beauty AND danger! 😉

We have what it takes to succeed!

See ya later
