GOING TO NYC FOR THE 4TH OF JULY. Sorry I just had to share my excitement with you all. #mericaaaa
at work the only station on is CNN. every day. It’s been a rough week of news coverage in the US this past week and a half. Makes me say even more confidently - “come quickly lord Jesus.”
“Let feelings out. Let feelings in. Don’t pretend you can control or censor your thoughts and feelings. You don’t have to wallow in them, but accept that they are what they are. Be sensible, while waiting to be inspired, which is far better.”
“I have taken all my good deeds, and all my bad deeds, and have cast them together in a heap before the Lord, and have fled from both to Jesus Christ, and in Him I have sweet peace.” - David Dickson

I Want to Spend My Life at the Fountain
“No one, no denomination, and no team is immune from the temptation to pursue their own esteem, righteousness, success, comfort, or power instead of Jesus’ glory and righteousness.” Looking back I notice these patterns in my faith walk. I always end up hitting these places of dry, distant, and numb. Going about life almost passionless but still holding on to diligence for the sake of...
I admired him more than I loved him
Glad it’s official. Seattle, we’re going to bring in the new year together. Can’t wait. | You’re already home where you feel love |
I’m so over my major. I’m so over interior design. Give me Adobe CS6 over AutoCAD any day. I’m just so over it. I have 2 more semesters of Interior Design courses before I graduate, but I don’t know if I can handle that. I just hate it. I DEFINITELY don’t want to go into Interior Design after college. If I switch my major to Visual Com or something similar I’ll...
new day | new mercies
I couldn’t sleep last night. I just laid there and tried not to think about anything. But there are somethings that just rush in. Or maybe God pushes them in. I think one of the big reasons I love Him so much is because He doesn’t always knock before He enters. He loves to just rush into my deepest parts and start flipping over tables, clearing spaces, and setting things free. This morning...
Lord, help me to remember & abide by this truth: “Our experience must be judged by the gospel, not the gospel by our experience (T. Keller).”
“Can I say something to young ladies here? Umm… I’m trying to pick my words carefully here. Umm… your husband, whoever he is, single ladies, will have an unbelievable amount of influence over your sons and daughters in regards to spiritual things. If you want your children to love Jesus deeply, hold out for a man that is Godly. And let me tell you this: I am well aware that Godly men are rare....
dear flagstaff friends.
I believe God loves me, but everyday is a war.
I just want to rest in the fact that jesus holds my future. Because if I trust that, there is no room for missed expectations, for jealousy, or for worry.
Zion was crazy.
I lose sight of my purpose as a daughter of Christ so easily - I get lost & stagnate & dry. I get busy and I focus on momentary things. It really is this simple: Image Christ :: Meet People :: Build Relationships :: Share Jesus Lord, help me embrace this. You were not vague when you commissioned us to go and make disciples. Help me not to be vague in the way that I live that out....
I can’t express enough how beautiful I think direct communication is.
Vows. By A.W. Tozer The first thing to vow is to face the business of sin in our everyday lives. A good vow to make is to hold on to nothing. Another vow we should make is never to defend yourslef. A vow we must make is never to say anything bad about others. The last vow is to give God the glory for everything in our lives. Seriously going to try and implement these into my life.
Sometimes I feel very insecure. Sometimes I feel very insignificant. And then I remember that that those are lies and that if I believe the gospel I will trust in the following: I am secure. Romans 8:28 I am assured that God works for good in all circumstances. Romans 8:31-39 I am free from any condemnation brought against me and I cannot be separated from the love of God. Philippians 1:6 I am...
Considering Text Messaging. I legitamitely loath anything more that quick questions & plan making. I can’t stand when people try to get to know each other, or try to get to know me, over text messages. Literal hate. That is all - move along.
my heart is catching up to my head.
“Belief is more than intellectual ascent. Belief is more than ‘here are the facts.’ Belief is ‘I’ve been transformed by this reality.’” — Matt Chandler. I am so naturally a “here are the facts!” type of person. Not to say that my life hasn’t been transformed by the truth, because in at least the past 10 years it definitely has. But there is this part of me that so...
Flagstaff. I think I maybe more than like you.
O my Saviour, Help me. I am so slow to learn, so prone to forget, so weak to climb; I am in the foothills when I should be on the heights; I am pained by my graceless heart, my prayerless days, my poverty of love, my sloth in the heavenly race, my sullied conscience, my wasted hours, my unspent opportunities. I am blind while light shines around me: ...
