back again.

Hello blogging friends. I’m back, and taking just a few of the moments this evening at home in Indy to blog while I have internet access. My heart is rather content to pour out some words here, sitting on the blue couch with tan trim next to my Dearest Daniel while my sister and mom…

Spurgeon and those who wandered before us

“Let no agitation distress you, but be quiet from fear of evil. Whatsoever cometh upon the earth, you, beneath the broad wings of Jehovah, shall be secure. Stay yourself upon his promise; rest in his faithfulness, and bid defiance to the blackest future, for there is nothing in it direful for you. Your sole concern…

glory be

This morning I wiped off our kitchen island; the crevices of granite tiles reminding me of the kitchen island of my childhood with cream squares and dark grout. It was one of those moments where you feel that you really haven’t grown up at all, or have at least, come full circle. Wiping down the…

contentedness

I’m “ready” to hear back from people. I’m “ready” to get some sort of response from employers who have received my cover letter and resume. At least, I think I am “ready.”  This is apparently not something I “need” to know. God knows what I need. He is able to come through, change circumstances, turn…

purpose

I don’t want to grumble as the children of Israel did…That leads to waste. I want to live in thanksgiving, joy, peace. All of these previously mentioned are possible right here, right in this day, this hour, this moment. Even with tasks at hand, there can still be joy and peace. Amazing! “For I do…

the desperation prayers

I hate this feeling of not knowing where to even begin. Deep sighs echo out and my roommates ask what’s wrong…. This job searching stuff. My heart easily becomes frustrated with my lack of progress. My lack of pecking at sites of places that randomly come to mind with a list of skills in my…

Adventure Day 8: Remembrances for untangling tired souls

God is God (You are not God.) God is in charge of your spiritual growth (and also in charge and in control of the spiritual growth of those around you, and those you care about). God never leaves, and never forsakes (even when it FEELS forsaken and like a wilderness) There is peace in submission…

radical trust

What does it mean to trust Him? What does it mean to remember to trust Him?   >>>It means to remember first of all… That I belong to Him.<<<< That I am His treasured possession. That nothing. EVER. Can separate me from Him. EVER.   What does it mean to trust Him?   It means…

beauty unhindered

There is joy here, joy that comes from remembering that He took it all….all of the wrath, shame, guilt, fear, anger, bitterness, lust, anxiety, frustration, impatience, greed, idolatry…It was laid on Jesus, this Jesus that I want to be my only passion…the only One I live for. I’ve been thinking about passions…what do I really want…

‘My Hope is In You’

My song this week. Oh yes. May it be true. My Hope is in You By Aaron Shust I meet with You and my soul sings out As your word throws doubt far away I sing to You and my heart cries Holy! Hallelujah Father, You’re near! My hope is in You, Lord All the…

needing wisdom

1 Kings 4:29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and breadth of mind like the sand on the seashore, Psalm 119:33-35 33Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes; and I will keep it to the end. 34 Give me understanding, that I may keep your law    and observe it with…
