Understanding or the lack thereof.

I so wish I could understand things better. I know it seems so simple, you either understand or you don’t. And yes, I guess it is, but there are times where I just sit back and think, ‘Wow, really?!?’ I mean there really are no words and that’s when I just lean more into Him.
And it’s been a hard day on the mind as well. Just draining emotionally and speaking life over the lies and thoughts that come up.

I watched this video today. I hadn’t seen it in awhile, it was on a friends blog and today they did a special on Oprah on it. An amazing story of life and Christ and how you just live each day…you live. You worship, and bring glory…and how, even now, they are able to share Christ and all His glory with a world who may believe in God, but don’t know Him. How truly awesome. Our loss is His gain….we get to know Him…worship, even though it may hard….we get to stand and let Him hold us up.

To Steph.

I heard these two songs today on the radio….twice. The Lord brought you to my mind. I thought of our journeys…There really are no words, but I know you know.

Be still and know that he is god
Be still and know that he is holy
Be still oh restless soul of mine
Bow before the prince of peace
Let the noise and clamor cease

Be still and know that he is god
Be still and know that he is faithful
Consider all that he has done
Stand in awe and be amazed
And know that he will never change
Be still

Be still and know that he is god
Be still and know that he is god
Be still and know that he is god
Be still
Be speechless

Be still and know that he is god
Be still and know he is our father
Come rest your head upon his breast
Listen to the rhythm of
His unfailing heart of love
Beating for his little ones
Calling each of us to come
Be still
Be still

I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Takeing every step in obedience
While I’m waiting
I will serve You
While I’m waiting
I will worship
While I’m waiting
I will not faint
I’ll be running the race
Even while I wait

I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it’s not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve you while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting on You, Lord

A Journey.

Although the journey is long, You are there.

You promised You wouldn’t give us what we couldn’t bare.

This journey is one that I didn’t think I would ever have to face.

However, You are allowing me to walk through it with Your grace.

Through the times where I feel like my heart can’t take any more.

To the times when You gently remind me it’s Your glory I’m here for.

Our journeys look different to each person, yet we cling to You just the same.

To grow without understanding the ‘why’s’ so our life shows Your fame.

In our journey we see glimpses of Your encouraging reminder: ‘I’ve equipped you’.

That through our journeys you take us on, You make all things new.

Thank You that You love us enough.

This evening I felt kind of down. I was driving with the kids….it was dark and they were playing in the backseat. I was deep in thought and passed a church that had those signs where you can change the sayings on it. Normally I don’t pay attention, honestly, but I looked and it said ‘Pray until you hear something’. Then there was another one a few mintues down the road. I looked at that one and it had something else about prayer. I had this conversation with God about these signs. How I’ve felt like I’ve prayed all I can pray. I don’t even know what to pray anymore. I know the Holy Spirit gives us words when we don’t know what to say or how to pray, but I haven’t heard much lately, and I’ve felt like there’s so much more I need to be praying and on my knees about….like I can waste any free minute.

I’ve been going through scripture and writing scritpures on note cards to put through the house. Scriptures to pray over our family. And it also helps Haven in her scripture memory. It’s hard for me to think outside the box sometimes. I’m a routine girl, so change is sometimes hard, but it’s so good to see how God uses that change. For Himself and to help show and teach us. I’m so glad He knows what He’s doing.

We got to talk about this today….

This chapter in Isaiah has come up several times this past week from a dear family member, and then today at church. And I was also able to talk about this with Haven this afternoon. It’s so amazing how her little mind soaks all this up….it’s such a different stage….to truly be able to disciple our children in Christ….it’s tough, yet a privilege and I know that God has equipped me.

Haven and I talked about darkness and how in the darkness, we get to shine b.c we have Jesus in our hearts. Some people don’t know Jesus. How our greatest significance is found in the darkness. I heard that today and it just stuck…where there is light, the darkness has to flee. The greater the darkness, the brigther You shine. It’s not us, it’s Him. It’s His grace, His love, His mercy, His kindness that leads to repentence. Godly sorrow. It’s very humbling….yet so needed and so freeing. Pouring it out to Him until it’s all out and your chains are gone…..

I’m so glad we are worth it to Him. I’m so grateful He pursues us and doesn’t let us go….I believe He will do what He says He will do.

Isaiah 60. Read it. Out loud….for your family.
