Clocking out of work may be one of the best feelings ever.
Ooh is prayer powerful or what. Yes yes yes.
College is strange.
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
This all just occurred to me as I was thinking through some stuff in life: I seek God because I don’t know what else to do now. I have no confidence in my own ability to overcome things. My thoughts and emotions continue to get the best of me even when I’m trying as hard as possible to not let them. But I was realizing, simply, that there’s a leading now within me that directs me...
Redeemed by Your mercy, consumed by Your grace, now I live for You.
You were the wolf in sheep’s clothing And I was the one who went astray But you followed me into the meadow All the while, my pride was your prey You have always been a wolf. Wearing an unconvincing sheet of wool. But I’ve always believed your disguise. And I blame myself for not knowing otherwise. And you’d follow me down the path. But somehow, the whole time, I was following you Because with...
Spirit now living and dwelling within me, keep my eyes fixed ever on Jesus’ face.
TIME FOR IT ALL
a bunch of quotes, lyrics, verses, thoughts that have been racing through my mind lately. Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. Isaiah 46:4 ((( same page ))) Create in me a pure heart, O God. And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your...
What is it about silence that can be so soothing? I could sit in this empty quiet hallway all night. (my own little world) But I must sleep. I can’t keep fighting it. Because soon sleep will take me under. I think that’s my way of controlling it. Because once it has me, there’s no tearing myself from its grip. (this will only make sense to me fully) But one day I want Sleep to be...
To be alone isn’t to be lonely. But sometimes having no one around causes reality to hit, making an unsettling impression. Being by myself enough is good. And refreshing. But then there’s this tipping point when it becomes too much. And I don’t want to bear it. But I can’t erase the moments that led up to me realizing nobody’s been around… But sometimes people...
Oh the beauty of my Jesus! Rescuing me, delivering me every day. Over and over and over. He is faithful.
Lakes are wonderful. Mission Viejo’s just surprsised me with its beauty. I’m excited to go sit by it soon!
God’s love never fails.
LORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds…In our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.
Jonah 2:8 Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs.
THIS IS SHARING
In loneliness, I recognize a desire in me to rest with someone. To be known by someone else. To be simple to that person. In complexity. Somehow. To have a love that perseveres. There’s a desire in me to sit in silence. But with someone else. Someone who can read the look in my eyes like a story. Who knows the details of that story. And loves it. And isn’t afraid of turning the pages....

I wake up its morning 9somethingam And I open my window, it’s the warmest (or so they say it will be) day We’ve had so far this year And I lay backwards falling onto the three blankets that covered myself in the night before the warmest day It’s Easter weekend And I listen to the birds And…
JUST ONE OF THOSE NIGHTS
It’s just one of those nights when sleep doesn’t seem like an option. And I know I need rest, but my body has been fighting me these past few mornings and has been deciding to sleep in way more than I would allow if I had power over my body in the morning. So tonight I decided to show it who’s boss. I will stay up for the next four hours. Wake myself up from my tired, sleepless...

sheol: there are certain people who get a concerned, concentrated look in their eyes when something makes them think or feel deeply. those are the type of people i want to befriend for the rest of my life. you know they won’t try to laugh away something serious, you know they might sacrifice for love, and you know they can sympathize in any situation.

Sometimes I think everybody just wants to reach that point in their lives where they know who is sleeping beside them when they flop down exhausted at night, and they don’t worry about whether or not it’s the right person, it’s just the person who has been there and will be there until you die, or…

A list of things I like that most people seem to not enjoy as much as me. Daily I’m reminded that somewhere inside, my self isn’t sure it’s 19. I will edit this regularly, I’m sure. As of 5.15 1. Justin Bieber. 2. Owl City. 3. (So I’ve been told) Really bad movies. Examples: 17 Again, High School Musical. So, maybe that’s Zac Efron’s fault.

The beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair.
Love your enemies.
I love falling asleep happy and at peace. It’s so wonderful. Thank You Jesus. Goodnight world. Sweet dreams to all y’all!
It’s funny to me how my question-asking quality shows up in every area of my life. Why am I so dang curious? Weird to think about.

NOTE: This isn’t my proudest piece of writing or anything, but it seemed like something good to share. And that’s kind of what this tumblr is all about for me. Idolatry is something that people were found guilty of throughout the entire Old Testament and it is something that we are all still guilty of today even in the 21st century. Throughout the books that make up the Old...
