In my doubt, You reassure me.
In my fear, You are perfect love.
In my loneliness, You are a friend.
In my blindness, You help me see.

In my grief, You are near.
In my pain, You comfort.
In chaos, You are my calm.
In my journey, You are here.

Journeys and Listening.

Have you gone shopping for something? You couldn’t describe it, but you knew you would know it when you saw it. You didn’t know what it was until you actually saw it.

Have you ever been pulled toward something and you don’t know what it is? That tug in your Spirit that you can’t describe to anyone, but you just know that you’re being pulled. You can’t describe it.
Whenever you walk with God, don’t know too much. B.c when you know too much you’ll miss it. You have to just play it by ear. Walk it out by faith.

He wants us to rely on Him and just keep walking with Him. Am I willing to travel by myself in the will of God even though it’s by myself? Even if, by the world’s standards, it is hopeless and they don’t understand?

He is going to do something amazing in me…..He is preparing me….God…He is going to take me higher than I have ever been before…..the destiny and purpose He has for me is being fulfilled…

Doing His will means it will take you out of your comfort zone…a place where you aren’t sure what is going to happen next. Where He is getting ready to take me, He will provide…He will make the way…

How well do I listen? I know we had a little test the other day. I may not see the answer but the answer is coming. If I walk in His will….it’s coming over the mountain…just keep walking in faith. I need to praise Him for the blessings I haven’t recieved yet. Am I willing to walk by faith—to the other side of the mountain–even though I can’t see the answer, the breakthrough, even though the journey could be long? Can I praise Him even though all I see is the mountain? And amazingly enough, I get to walk with Him on the journey….He won’t let me go it alone….

Open the eyes of our heart, Jesus. Restore a right spirit within us…break us and mold us.

Thank you for the faith journeys. Thank You for speaking to us in the depths….for being patient while we continue to learn how to listen and hear from You…

We had fun taking pictures of Harbin today. He is such a sweet boy and I can’t believe how big he’s getting. It has gone by way too fast. I can’t believe his cousin Mr. Roman is going to be one in a few short weeks……



Happy boy.

I miss my Aunt Erin.

Can I be any cuter?
My all time favorite picture up to this point….

There really isn’t a title for this one. Today was my 30th birthday. One that was not looked upon with excited, b.c, well, it’s 30. I know that it’s supposedly ‘the new 20’. We’ll see. However, I did decide to invite my family and close friends over to celebrate and hang for a bit.

The besties and sisters.
Me and Steph.

The girls.
Brightly, Haven, and Kayleen.

Beautiful-eyed Justus.

Princess for a day.
Me with Audra’s princess tiara.

Ashley, Me and the Boys.

Lord, I’m in awe of how You choose to bless me and love me.

Sitting Still.

So, my dear sweet friend threw out a challenge to listen yesterday. And to be intentional about it. So today we were supposed to tell what we learned or heard in the queitness.
Well, since I’m working now at W.M., it looked a bit different for me. I didn’t have TV or music, but phones ringing and people talking, ect. Although, it was amazingly ‘quiet’ yesterday for a Tuesday. I was able to sit at my desk for periods of time and found myself staring off into my screen. The Lord would bring to mind something and I would pray. Thoughts would come into my mind and immediately I recognized them for what they were, and renounced them. I thought on what is above…
I also thought that as I sat there, how many people that I work in close contact with know I’m a Christian, held to a higher standard?
I love the saying I heard when I was in jr. high:
You may be the only Bible some people read.
So my listening looked and sounded a bit different. And then got home and did Haven’s devotional and she got to write out the verse as a reminder that our eyes should be on the Lord and not other people/things.
It was: My eyes are ever fixed on the Lord.
Jesus, thank You for dear friends who challenge me. Thank you that even though I don’t sit and listen as I should or stop to truly be still, that there are ways you speak…people you bring, visions and dreams. I pray that You would give me that vision tonight of what it is You want me to know.
We fix our eyes on You, the author and perfecter of our faith.

God is God. There is no other. He is Redeemer. He makes a way in the wilderness. He gives beauty for ashes. He restores. He’s the lover of my soul. He delights in me. He is my Father. He rejoices over me with singing. He sees my heart. He knows my thoughts. He loves me as I am. He is faithful. He is everlasting. His name is higher than the heavens. He makes all things new. He is merciful. His love endures. He protects us. He will do what He says He will do. He is who He says He is. God is God.
