We Were Made To.......

Hello all!!
Can you believe it is August 31st?
I remember July 31st like it was yesterday.

One day when I was riding down the rode I thought up this blog.
I have been wanting to write it for awhile now. So what better blog is there to close up our August archive?
I have been thinking of the different songs and books that start with, ''Made To'' or ''You Were Made To.''

We were made to Make A Difference.

{Love this book BTW}

We were Made To Crave. {God.}

We were Made to Worship.

If you would like to listen to ''Made To Worship'' click HERE!

Talk to ya later guys.

Join me in saying, ''Chocolates and Coffee August!!''

P.S. I read this passage this evening and wanted to share it with you.

Matthew 5:46-48 The MSG
If all you do is love the lovable, do you expect a bonus? Anybody can do that. If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal? Any run-of-the-mill sinner does that.
 48"In a word, what I'm saying is, Grow up. You're kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you."

Deut. 4:7
Rev. 4:11

Tuesday, August 16, 2011


Hhheeeeayyyyyy :)
How are ya'll doin'?
In my prayers and Bible-reading I have come across like a zillion lines about knowing. God knows everything. He is everywhere. Simple truths that change your perspective. IF you actually listen to them...Apply them...Meditate on them.
So, for me my latest ''theme'' is serving, listening, and being humble. {Ok...So its three things, but they tie together beautifully.}
This is the first time in the Bible that knowing is mentioned {in this version of course...}.

Genesis 3:4
The serpent told the Woman, "You won't die. God knows that the moment you eat from that tree, you'll see what's really going on. You'll be just like God, knowing everything, ranging all the way from good to evil."

This is one of the last times.

Hebrews 13:1
[ Jesus Doesn't Change ] ''Stay on good terms with each other, held together by love. Be ready with a meal or a bed when it's needed. Why, some have extended hospitality to angels without ever knowing it! Regard prisoners as if you were in prison with them. Look on victims of abuse as if what happened to them had happened to you.......''

The definition of knowing:
indicating private knowledge: suggesting that somebody knows a secret or something that others are unaware of
"a knowing smile"
astute: aware of things and able to act cleverly and judge shrewdly
showing intelligence: having knowledge, information, or understanding
intentional: done on purpose
know·ing·ly ADVERB
know·ing·ness NOUN
(1) How many knowing smiles and actions has He made toward you? You are blessed.
Personally, I loved to read that. God and I can have those little ''private jokes'' and ''private knowledge'' {not bad secrets or wrong jokes....Just to clarify :)  } that I treasure in friendships, because He knows everything. (2) He is aware of everything. Period. (3) He shows intelligence alright!
He know everything. He understands. (4) He is an intentional God. You purpose on earth, His love for you is not coincidence.
Im going to share some more amazing verses on knowing and God knowing.
Job 28:24
"God alone knows the way to Wisdom, he knows the exact place to find it. He knows where everything is on earth, he sees everything under heaven. After he commanded the winds to blow and measured out the waters, Arranged for the rain and set off explosions of thunder and lightning, He focused on Wisdom, made sure it was all set and tested and ready. Then he addressed the human race: 'Here it is! Fear-of-the-Lord—that's Wisdom, and Insight means shunning evil.''
How awesome is that verse?!!! He knows the way...He know the EXACT place to find it. He knows where everything-and everyone- is on earth.
He tells the lightning where to land.
This line is from a verse in Isaiah:
He's learned it all from God-of-the-Angel-Armies, who knows everything about when and how and where.

Im going to leave you tonight with another 2 verses to ponder on.
I want you to think about them and I encourage you to look them up in your own Bibles. I'm going to.
Isaiah 40:27
Why would you ever complain, O Jacob, or, whine, Israel, saying, "God has lost track of me. He doesn't care what happens to me"? Don't you know anything? Haven't you been listening? God doesn't come and go. God lasts. He's Creator of all you can see or imagine. He doesn't get tired out, doesn't pause to catch his breath. And he knows everything, inside and out. He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts. For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don't get tired, they walk and don't lag behind.
  {God lasts. Sigh.}
This is the very popular passage, right? The eagle verse. I sometimes skim over it, because I had heard it so many times before. BUT {!} the message is indescribable. I really love how The Message puts it...
Jeremiah 15:10
[ Giving Everything Away for Nothing ] Unlucky mother—that you had me as a son, given the unhappy job of indicting the whole country! I've never hurt or harmed a soul, and yet everyone is out to get me. But, God knows, I've done everything I could to help them, prayed for them and against their enemies. I've always been on their side, trying to stave off disaster. God knows how I've tried!
Not exactly a ''feel good'' verse, but sometimes you might feel this way. You've helped them! You've tried to serve them. You have tried to love your enemies. You have even prayed for them!
You know how in the Bible it talks about your reward coming IF you do things for God and bsically to not show off? That goes along here. God knows your effort, desires, and defeat. He knows all about it.
So, wait for Him. He will give you your full reward, give you His plan for you, and your enemies will get theirs as well. In His timing.

 I don't think I could ever do what these verses and words mean justice, but God laid it on me to share with you. I pray it helped you look at that word a little differently the next time you here it.

I catch myself telling God something and saying, ''Ya know?''
Of course He does :)

Rest in that. Wait for Him.

Emilee <3
 P.S. Shout out to ''Im Sorry. Your Fine.'' and ''The Claw... Awwwww!''
You know who you are :)

Pictures on August 11, 2011

PT's, How are ya?
It seems like forever ago that I blogged last, but it really wasn't very long ago.
Yesterday, {even though I have a phone camera} I took my camera to the Little Apple {Also took some pictures at home} and took random pictures for you. So, tonight im gonna share some of them. :)

A sign in a alley in Clay.
I thought it was a pretty cool pic.

Jason Gray! {{Go to last blog}}
Mom and I listened to him in the car on the way to Manhattan.

And then tobyMac on the way home :)

Me and my puppy, Raskal.

So, he isn't a ''puppy.'' All well :)

In this picture he is thinking, ''Seriously ANOTHER PICTURE!!!''


A picture of me in the rearview mirror?
Do ya think its cool? :)

O.k....I didn't really take these upcoming pictures yesterday, but I wanted to share them.
This is one corner of my bookshelf :)
A blessed P.O.V. : D

The other corner... :)

The other night this is all my books and projects that I was working on {and reading} :)

I have been reading a devotional by Melody Carlson {It is actually in the picture above. Orange book with the word TRUE.} and have been reading one every day.
So, im going to share the verses I have read about so far. I hope you listen to them and are ''doers''
of what you read.

Matthew 5:3-9 The Message
3"You're blessed when you're at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.
 4"You're blessed when you feel you've lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.
 5"You're blessed when you're content with just who you are—no more, no less. That's the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can't be bought.
 6"You're blessed when you've worked up a good appetite for God. He's food and drink in the best meal you'll ever eat.
 7"You're blessed when you care. At the moment of being 'care-full,' you find yourselves cared for.
 8"You're blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.
 9"You're blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That's when you discover who you really are, and your place in God's family.
For fun, look it up in your own version! :)
Enjoy your weekend.

Thanks for reading guys. I hope you enjoyed it.
Talk to ya'll later.
Chocolates and Coffee!!!
Goodnight.....{Oh, and Goodnight John-Boy! :)}

Jason Gray and Today.

  Hello. :)
How are you?

How was your day?
Mine was fun and laid back. I read some, worked on Peculiar Treasures, and cleaned my room. Again. :)
 I just started a Devo book, a historical Christian fiction, and I have been working on Bible Quiz ''homework'' every night. What have you been reading?

Well, tonight I am sharing some Jason Gray videos.
His new album is coming out soon.
Just today I saw his newest music video and I have been singin' it all day long :)
I hope you enjoy it.
First though, I am going to share some of his videos from his last c.d. ''Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue.''

AMAZING song if you think about the lyrics and the meaning. I love it :)
~I Am New

Another thought provoking song!
I really LOVE this song. {but...I could say that for every song I've posted on this blog :) }
~Fade With Our Voices

I was going to share More Like Falling In Love, but you have heard it before :)
So, I encourage you {if you have a Facebook} to look up Jason Gray...To ''like'' him...and to listen to some
songs on his bandpage. Or, you could look some more songs of his up on Youtube.
He loves God and it is visible through his message and music. :)

Here is the video that was just released.

~Remind Me Who I Am

and... Behind The Scenes

Also, if you want to read his blogs, listen to music, and read his biography click here!

For those of you who are new {Get it...I Am New :) :) the song... hehe. }
here is a picture of Jason Gray and I last October when I had the opportunity to meet him.

Jason Gray and Emilee Kaye.

I know I have shared it before, but it goes with the whole ''Jason'' theme for the evening.
I hope you enjoyed the music :)

Look up Hebrew 4:12.
Great verse.

My Precious Readers :)
You are so awesome!
Well, if you remember, I went to camp last week.
It was amazing. I love camp. Im sure my family is sick of hearing, ''At camp....'' :)
Tonight I am going to share the notes that I wrote to you and give you some homework :)
I have been going to this camp for five years.

Hello PT's! {Peculiar Treasures}
I wanted to let you know I have arrived safely to camp. I am sitting in the gazebo.
Sarah, Audrey, and other people are playing human fooseball! I played last game, but I was terrible :) It was fun, but I was terrible :) I just wanted to say hello. TTYL
Love, Your Blogger,
Emilee <3 Kaye

Hi again :) {Random note; I forget where and when I wrote it.}

July 28th, 2011
Oh My Goodness bloggies!
I am so sorry I haven't written a note since MONDAY!
We have been SSOOO busy! {I know, I hate that excuse, too.}
Today is clash day and you should totally see me right now! I just finished my date with Jesus and I am now waiting for the canteen bell to ring! I am very sad it is Thursday, but I still have two full days here! I am sitting on a picnic table- to my right there is ''my spot'' view and in front water, trees, and the Leffler home {The camp directors}  :) I will see ya soon. Im gonna go memorize verses.
Love, Navy Girl,
Emilee <3 Kaye

{Navy was my team for the week and the other team was Army...Army won, but Navy still is awesome. :) }

Camp was amazing. {Have I mentioned that?}
I met some new camp friends and hung out with old ones :)
Many kids made decisions to talk to God, to listen to Him, and accepted Him into their heart.
We even had a ''conversion'', because of the scarely awesome hayride! {Yes, I just said scarely awesome :) }

One fun thing was that the pastor that was there my first year ever at camp came back :)

On Friday night we had another speaker and his main passage was on Isaiah 6.
Then, I went to church on Sunday in Iowa and guess what Sunday School is on? Isaiah 6!
So, what I want you to do is to read Isaiah 6. Out loud. Draw it. Imagine it. Something!
Whatever it takes to get a picture in your mind of how holy God is and how AMAZING it is that He cleanses us. :)
Im gonna go read.
Thanks for listening :)
Come back :)

Serve Him!!
Emilee <3 Kaye

P.S. How was your week?
Have a wonderful night and a great day Tuesday! {Tomorrow}
