Dry bones

"Beholding glory begs for lingering. The modern, fast-paced world will tempt you to rush and skim. This kind of life will make you shallow. The world does not need more widely read, shallow people. It needs deep people. 
I don't mean complex. 
I don't mean highly educated. 
I don't mean you know big words. 
I don't mean you know historical background. 
I mean you have seen glory - the glory of God in his Word. You have pondered it and felt its relation to all the parts of your life. You have been steadied and satisfied by it. You have come home. You are not frantic anymore. You are at peace in the presence of God. This is what I mean by deep. This is what the world needs." The Pleasures of God, Piper

This is my prayer for summer 2013. I need to know God more. I want to know God more. I am empty, thirsty and hungry. God give me courage and discipline to seek you daily and rest at peace in your presence. Bring life into these dry bones. Show me Your pleasures and Your glory daily.

John 15:9-11

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you Abide in my love.
If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love.
These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.

I know i need you
I need to love you
I love to see you, but its been so long
i long to feel you
i feel this need for you'
and i need to hear you
is that so wrong?

now you pulled me near you
when we're close i fear you
still im afraid to tell you
all that i've done
are you done forgiving?
or can you look pass my pretending?
Lord i'm so tired of defending
what i've become
what have i become?

i hear you say "my love is over,
its underneath, its inside, its in between
the times you doubt me, when you can't feel
the times that you've questioned 'is this for real?'
the times you've broken, the times that you mend
the times you hate me and the times that you bend

well my love is over, its underneath
its inside, its in between,

these times you're healing
and when your heart breaks
the times that you feel like you've fallen from grace
the times you're hurting
the times that you heal
the times you go hungry and *are tempted* to steal

in times of confusion and chaos and pain
im there in your sorrow under the weight of your shame
im there through your heartache
im there in the storm

my love i will keep you by my power alone
i dont care where you've fallen, where you have been
i'll never forsake you
my love never ends, it never ends

Spring has sprung.

Babies popping out here and there and rings flying left and right. . . . . . .

aww yes, spring is here. . . . :)

Life is flying bye and its already April? A while ago I asked myself what am I doing right now that requires faith?
Well...I have always wanted to do big things for God and still do---not sure what those big things look like but I want to see God move mountains. But slowly God has been showing me that I need to be faithful in the little things.
Little things that people won't notice. Little things that require self-disciple. Little things that the world passes by everyday. Little things at work that no one else wants to do. Little things that take initiative. Little things that I take for granted. Little things that take patience. Little things that call for endurance. Little things that require a daily fight for joy.

oh little things. . . .

Great Faith That Smiles Is Born of Great Trials

It's easy to say "In God we trust"
When life is radiant and fair,
But the test of faith is only found
When there are burdens to bear--
For our claim to faith in the sunshine
Is really no faith at all,
For when roads are smooth and days are bright
Our need for God is so small,
And no one discovers the fullness
Or the greatness of God's love
Unless they have walked in the darkness
With only a light from above--
For the faith to endure whatever comes
Is born of sorrow and trials,
And strengthened only by discipline
And nurtured by self-denials--
So be not disheartened by troubles,
For trails are the building blocks
On which to erect a fortress of faith
Secure on God's ageless rocks.
