A mi me encanta mucho aprender español. 
Disfruto ir a clase cada día y siento como yo estoy aprendiendo mucho. Pero este semana he estado muy preocupada con mis clases de español. Yo quiero ser fluida! Pero que difícil es. Eh, este lenguaje es bonito. Hay así muchas ventajas a español y los otros lenguajes. Yo deseo mucho vivir en México o Costa Rica... un país donde yo puedo sumirme en la cultura, la gente y el lenguaje. Yo quiero practicar mas que yo puedo. Yo estoy segura que el Señor ha puesto este pasión en mi vida para un razón pero no puedo verlo ahora. 

Entonces hasta el día cuando todo está claro yo estoy feliz servir mi Dios. 


discouragement and doubt have been flooding my thoughts lately. 

i KNOW that the Lord is good. 
Slow to anger and quick to love.

My eyes are always on the LORD,
for He rescues me from the eyes of my enemies.
Psalms 25:15

Rejoice in our confident hope. 
Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.
Romans 12:12

At times when i feel like i can't see the good
i have to remember what the Lord has done in my life.
Even if it's hard for me to see now.
The Lord loves me.
His daughter.

And that, i can never forget. 



i'll be so honest right now. . .
Sometime i get really frustrated with myself.
Frustration like this happens because i have such a restless soul.
i am sure that somehow and someway that Lord will use this in my life in amazing ways.
At times like these, however, it just stinks.
So on these days when i wake up and the first thing i desire to do is buy a plane ticket to some far away place, i am trying my darned hardest to put my hands out in full surrender.

"I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God's hands, that I still possess."
-Martin Luther

i am going to begin praying that i'll once again have the faith of a child.
Trusting that God's ways are always good.
Having faith the Lord will provide!

On a similar note, thank God for the Konza.


Hope is Coming For Me

I have yet to read a book that has spurred me on
as much as Practicing His Presence.

Looking over it again today. 
I've really been sensing the Lord in my life recently. 
I always do, but in one of those irresistible and joyous ways that I can't even begin to describe. 

I just want each moment of each day to be penetrated by the love of the Lord. 
1 John is still the cry of my heart. I want to love like that.

"Try to call Christ to mind at least one second of each minute. . . invite Him to share everything you do or say or think." -Frank L. (Practicing His Presence)

"We ought to purpose ourselves towards this end: to become in this life the most perfect worshipper of God we can possible be." -Brother Lawrence (Practicing His Presence) 

So joyous that the Lord extends patience and grace. 
He is good. 


11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.
12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers,
against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
13Therefore put on the full armor of God,
so that when the day of evil comes,
you may be able to stand your ground,
and after you have done everything, to stand.
Ephesians 6: 11-13

There have been some extremely real things going on in my life.
You don't realize how real spiritual warfare is
until it affects you in a tangible way.

Jesus- you have been given as a sacrifice.
i want to give up all the holds i desire
to have on my life.
Life doesn't make sense without you.

Prayer is Beautiful.
The Lord's children are
reconciled and redeemed.


lead. me.

You were as I
Tempted and trialed
You are
The word became flesh
Bore my sin and death
Now you're risen
-Brooke Fraser.

There happens to be one verse that has seen me through so much... that the Lord has been tempted in every way that i have. i serve a God who can empathize with me and that... that is amazing.

Ichthus worship last night had me in tears. This line :
"Sons and Daughters of the Living God"
That got me. i needed that...
Then to hear the words:
"Oh Praise the one who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead."
Yes, the Lord showed up. The Spirit of the Lord is real. i know this.

On a very different note...
there's a new band causing quite the ruckus in Manhattan.



Thank you Jesus for this weather.
It's beautiful.
-your daughter
