ANCHORED

It will be my joy to say, "Your will, Your way, always."

i’ve said too much
but not enough”

i’m overwhelmed with God’s love for me. it blows my mind that he loves me like a groom loves his bride. especially this summer i know what it feels like to be loved by someone else. it’s awesome and it’s something i never wanna give up. it’s hard for me to comprehend the fact that God loves me as much and even more than how i feel right now. it’s simply amazing! i don’t think i’ll ever understand that kind of love, but i’m gonna soak it up and spread as much love to others as i can.

I let go of my worries & God provided me with a closer place to stay.

How great Thou art.

“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.”

If you become weary of waiting for answer to your prayers, remember that I also wait: so that I may be gracious to you and have mercy on you. I wait till you are ready to receive the things I have lovingly prepared for you. Blessed are those who wait for Me — expectantly, longingly, trustingly.

I can’t do this on my own. God, help me. I need to feel Your presence so I know that You are in control & that You have a prosperous plan for my life. I will never be snatched from Your hand, but I certainly have felt the devil around the corner ready to pounce on any given moment that I’m struggling in. Not fun at ALL. I will not lose hope; I know there is a reason this is all happening. I just pray that I won’t let the devil keep destroying my life. I need to focus on You because You give me life to the full.

i am discovering more and more how much i enjoy resting in the now & being quiet. this morning, i sat outside and embraced the sunshine and calmness around me. i heard the birds chirping & the wind blowing through the leaves of the trees. how could i take this beautiful land for granted? the greens are so bright and the sky was so blue. gravel roads surrounded by rolling farmland. cows and horses communicating to each other. and then the sound of the ziplines reminded me once again of how blessed i am to be working at Sand Creek even if i wasn’t working today.
& tonight driving back from dinner we didn’t have music on. i loved hearing the tires hitting the gravel and the engine growling. i saw houses going to sleep and the moon trying to peak through the stormy clouds rolling in. memories of family trips where we drove through the night came to life. once again i felt like i was in the back seat cuddling with my pillow and blanket, being rocked to sleep by the van’s steady speed and random headlights flashing past.

i am surrounded by such a gorgeous area filled with loving people. i need not take that for granted. i may wish to be somewhere else, to be surrounded by more adventurous people, but i must not focus on that. God has me here for a reason, and He is reminding me everyday (even the ones that aren’t super) that i am doing this for Him. He is the reason i get up in the morning. He gives me life.

Resting In Him // Jesus Lives by Sarah Young

Though you sit in darkness I will be your Light. Sometimes you need to rest in the shadows. If you continue pushing yourself — ignoring how weary you are — you may collapse all together. Many of My followers drive themselves to the point of exhaustion or utter discouragement, while pretending everything is all right. Your enemy the devil rejoices — even gloats — when he sees this happening. He understand the power of pretense to weaken My children till they are easy prey for him.

Do not panic when you have fallen, for you will rise again. Be content to sit in darkness while I refresh your spirit, mind, and body. I am as fully present with you when you are sitting as when you are standing or walking. Look for Me in the shadowy place where you find yourself now. I want to shelter and nurture you under My wings, where you will find refuge. While you are relaxing, I will be your Light — protecting, healing, and restoring you.

When My work of restoration is finished, you can crawl under My wings: ready to rise again and continue your journey. My Presence will go with you, illuminating the way before you — strengthening and encouraging you. Hope in Me, My child, for you will again praise Me for the help of My Presence.

I need to talk to my elders more often! I talked with Ellen, a 90 year old lady, today about some of her life and where she has been. phew, that woman has traveled and has seen some amazing things! I hope when I’m 90 and still cracking jokes like Ellen that I will have awesome stories that I can tell to the younger folk…

challenge accepted!
