All of my other prayers have been answered, so now I am praying that you write a book. Um… yeah.

I Am Free!

Not Gonna Lie

Cried about not being able to say goodbye today, among other things. Thank you, oh so much, for the years (read: months) of therapy which I will have to endure. Ah well, at least Rob’s the coolest.

Marvelous Light

🙂 Into marvelous light, I’m running. Out of darkness, out of shame. 🙂

Hurricane Alex and Prayers

Praying for my friends in the Gulf of Mexico, especially Kristin, who is helping out with the oil spill creating all things scientific which will help to remove oil.

RSS

Okay, can I just say that my life would be SO much simpler if you created an RSS? But, NO, we have to be difficult don’t we? Ugh. I have gone from “completely ecstactic” about Jesus specifically answering my prayers to frustration/rejection.

It’s not about me.

It’s not about me.

It’s really not about me.

Breaking

Praying… that He will passionately pursue you, break you, soften you to His love, make you ready to fully experience Him in all his glory!

How Do You Say…?

I have been praying a lot lately about people, situations, various developments in my life. And my prayers are being answered, only I don’t know specifically in what ways. I know that things are happening, and God is moving, and it is exciting to see.

It’s also scary. I trust God, of course, but He is asking me to let go of people (physically). Still, spiritually, I have never felt more close to Him (Which I know you can FEEL not close to God, but the truth is that you are ALWAYS close to Him–because Jesus is in you, you are in Christ, and Christ is in the Father) and to the people for whom I am praying.

A lot of my days are filled with wondering and expectation. Is there pain and brokenness? Or is there joy? Both? Those are the questions to which I wish I knew the answers.

Despite not knowing the answers, I will wait. I won’t let go (unless God asks me to). I have faith. I am trusting. I know that He is working, and I am SO stoked for Heaven–to see all the amazing work that He has done. I am also excited to see exactly why and how my prayers are working. While it’s frustrating to not see right now, the parts that He is revealing are thrilling! I feel like those parts are gifts from Him. He is showing me a part of the picture, not all of it. I think if I could see all of it, it might scare me.

Still… I sometimes feel like telling Him that my prayers would be much more effective if I knew EXACTLY for what I am praying. But that would take the fun away out of NOT knowing and still having my prayers answered.

God is good. All the time. Really.

Sidewalk Prophets

Three in the morning,
And I’m still awake,
So I picked up a pen and a page,
And I started writing,
Just what I’d say,
If we were face to face,
I’d tell you just what you mean to me,
I’d tell you these simple truths,

Be strong in the Lord and,
Never give up hope,
You’re going to do great things,
I already know,
God’s got His hand on you so,
Don’t live life in fear,
Forgive and forget,
But don’t forget why you’re here,
Take your time and pray,
These are the words I would say,

Last time we spoke,
You said you were hurting,
And I felt your pain in my heart,
I want to tell you,
That I keep on praying,
Love will find you where you are,
I know cause I’ve already been there,
So please hear these simple truths,

Be strong in the Lord and,
Never give up hope,
You’re going to do great things,
I already know,
God’s got His hand on you so,
Don’t live life in fear,
Forgive and forget,
But don’t forget why you’re here,
Take your time and pray,
These are the words I would say,

From one simple life to another,
I will say,
Come find peace in the Father!

Sleep Well

“… And I was like, ‘Thank you, Jesus, for that.’ That was just a little gift for me. I felt like that had my name on it. ‘To Sarah, from Christ.’ You know? ‘Here… there… sleep well.’ And… uh… a witch. I mean, I was beaming! I mean I had music up on the way home. I’m like, ‘Pagans! Yes!'”

Stop Your Pride!

Because that’s what it is. It is not humility to claim guilt before God.

Also, stop beating yourself up until you have been sufficiently punished for your infractions–STOP BEING LIKE GOD! What He did is bigger than what you did.

Finally, why are you going to put yourself under submission of being treated for SYMPTOM, when Jesus treats you for DISEASE? He killed you–crucified you–dead.

Come to Him all that thirst…
