Community

The mission: unity in community and in His presence– to dwell with Him forever. To abide. To abide in Him. To abide in His love.   “I will be your God and you will be my people.” (See 2 Corinthians 6:16) We belong, darlings. We belong. We belong to each other– we are joint heirs with Christ!…

Unspoken Words: a response

Because most days in life I only get to nod and smile whilst dying inside //  These are some of my many thoughts on the subject of missions abroad vs at home I had a conversation last week and it got me to thinking (as most conversations do). I had just told this woman that…

The Human Race 

I want to live a life of beauty  for all world to see but only for their eyes to fix on the Christ that lives in me I want to share all that I have  with those who have no home To be a friend to those in need  So they no longer roam  I want…

Pause.

“Few of us would choose just the life we live in this world. There are no chances, no accidents. Our ways are those of the Lord’s choosing– ways sadder, perhaps, but safer; rougher, perhaps, but surer; narrower, perhaps, but better than those of our own dreaming.” J.R. Miller, Daily Readings in the Life of Christ…

Praying + Practicing My Way To Perfection

I am really bad at consistency. And commitment. And courage. (And a whole host of other things that do not necessarily begin with the letter ‘c’…) But I’m trying my best to be a pleasing aroma to my Lord and am learning what it means to conquer in His strength, so today, I thought I…

Mountaintop

She stood, the altitude high, the air crisp and thin making it harder to breathe, her body aching from overuse, but still it was well beyond worth it. She had waited her entire life for this single moment. She had finally made it. She had prayed and climbed and climbed and prayed and fasted and…

An Open Book 

That I am not. But today, I’m cracking the window to my heart and letting the cool breeze of reflection in.  To my younger self– oh there’s so many things I would say. I would dry your tears and tell you that you’re missing the happiest days of your life longing for something else. Oh…

Be Still BUT Be Bold

I’m digging out a dusty draft for today’s post. (I’m cheating, I know, but 30 days of blogging is a long time!) Day 1/30 for my month of posting extravaganza! Ha. Ha. Enjoy these little musings, won’t you? // Be still. Be bold. Sounds like an oxymoron to me, how ’bout you? But that’s just…

#simplyplants

I’ve been struggling with this for a long time. Well, maybe struggling isn’t the word…debating? It was always just a little twinge in my heart that I didn’t want to open up and discover. I wanted to continue on in my ignorance. And if I know anything, I know that’s not right. That’s not God’s…

Live like it.

Is it too much to want a group of believers surrounding you? People you can call on for prayer. Advice. Leadership. Comfort. People you can worship with, laugh with, share your heart with– People who will listen when you speak and truly care… But will care about Jesus and your relationship status with Him even…
