He left the comfort of his throne to fight for victory.

Sometimes my heart hurts.
i can really and truly feel it hurting.
For many reasons.

*Satan has been getting to me. blah.
*Sometimes people don't give me grace. blah.
*i want a 4.0 and that means hard work. blah.
*i definitely hate letting people down. blah.

But i take a step back and i see my Savior.
i see how He is my grace. How he doesn't lead me into temptation.
And how He is my constant. And i truly believe this.
My soul is alive when I am in His presence.
When I choose to see Him in, through and around me, I become so alive.
And I can't explain it any other way.

This is why i can get up each morning.
Because i have a reason.
Love wakes me up.


Try as I may to chase another Lover,
I find there is, there is no other

All the other Lovers fade away 
Only YOU can satisfy 

And happy am I, to live a hungry life
And blessed am I, to thirst
My desire for You, it is my gift within
I am blessed, I am blessed among men!
- Misty Edwards

i'm so tired of chasing pointless things.


To live is CHRIST.

Instead, speaking the truth in love,
we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head,
that is, Christ.
Eph. 4:15

The Lord has been calling me to wake up.
To be bold for Him.
To speak truth...even when it's scary because it usually is.
To live the love that's been given to me.
And to consider all as loss but to follow Him.


i have been reflecting on this passage all week... 
so i'll share it with you!

"Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
    I have called you by name, you are mine.
2When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
   and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
   and the flame shall not consume you.
3For I am the LORD your God,
   the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.

Isaiah 43:1-3(ESV)

The Lord is so faithful.
