Life [Re]defined – Jake Hamilton

Life [re]defined by Jake Hamilton

I hear the Spirit calling me
And I’m ready to answer
I am laying down my pride
To hear the cry of your comfort

I felt your tug upon my heart
And it’s setting me free now
I can’t deny your reckless love
So, I’m bending a knee, now

I, I don’t want to wake up
trying to make it through
lost and confused
No, I don’t want to survive
I want to live

Yes, Lord, yes
Lord, You
You are life
Life beyond the veil
Beyond what’s safe
and normal,
What is possible

You, You satisfy
You’re more than just a fantasy of faith
You are everything
You’re life re-defined.

You are the love
that finds a way
And I can not deny it
I tried to run
and make my way
But I’m turning towards home now

You are the wisdom
that I need
And the reason I’m longing
For more than
just the American dream
I hear eternity calling!

I’m laying it all down
Just for one glimpse of your face
It’s gonna be worth it
It’s gonna be worth it (4x)

Stop the Candy Shop

The Candy Shop is a film initiative to help fight against child sex trafficking.

The Candy Shop is a thirty minute film that Whitestone is now in post-production for and will release in November. This film is being made for the Doorpost Film Project, and with support from 12Stone® Church and Street Grace.

The film is a Fairytale/Parable about the child sex trafficking epidemic that has overrun our city of Atlanta. We are using the film to not only raise awareness but provoke meaningful action towards this issue taking place in our own backyard.

Up to 500 underaged girls a month are trafficked for sex here in our city of Atlanta.
It’s the number one city in the country for child sex trafficking..
The 10th in the world.

This plague has gone on for too long, and now we at Whitestone, in cooperation with Doorpost, 12Stone® Church and StreetGrace want to put a stop to it.

This film represents the spearhead of a citywide and possibly a nationwide campaign.
It is not a documentary. It is not a PSA. It is the beginning of a movement.


life marches on

a sharp plow
in the hands of God

making rich the soil
of my heart

weeds and rocks
readying the soil for seeds

planting seeds of
faith, hope, and love

the young seedling
with your word

the fruit
at season’s end

in action

if love were merely words
if love were merely thoughts
if love were merely feelings
would it really be love?

love in action
sacrifices for others
honors others
protects others

if faith were merely words
if faith were merely thoughts
if faith were merely feelings
would it really be faith?

faith in action
holds on
