Only You can fill this void, only You can calm the quaking. 

Only You can help me find the purpose for which You made me. 

I seek without finding a way to express all the thoughts that are building inside that can’t mesh a hundred ideas all waiting to be found, in the mean time I feel like all the good ideas have already been used and anything that I could think of would fall away like only so much ruble. 

I want so badly to have an effect, to war against the machine with some semblance of success. I guess the question still remains…too who’s definition of success do I long to achieve is it wealth and popularity I seek, well no not entirely…I want to change lives to plant seeds and see the spirit of God move strongly through my ramblings but at the same time I would not mind if in the process we were granted some meager allowance. I would love to have more so that I could give more, I want to leave an inheritance…a legacy. Where do I even begin? How do I give these ideas wings so that they might unfurl and take flight? I am sure I’m not the only one asking. But alone in the process…guess I better go back to prayer. Lord please guide me. Don’t let me walk out of step…in accordance to Your grand design where things align and in glorious splendor lights shine brightly rendering all dark things to pass…reveal the way to me, that I might succeed in whatever You may ask. In Jesus Name, Amen.

My heart is heavy thinking about all the lies the world so easily believes about who God is and is not. Even now I know many people who believe they are God…or that there is no God. I know more who think that the universe is just a big cosmic energy and that we are all this energy and so on and so forth…no purpose, no meaning…

God gave me a purpose, He designed me with a plan in mind. He wove me together in my mothers womb intricately and with great detail leaving nothing undone that was not meant to be so. He determined that I would know and love Him, showed Himself faithful in answering prayer, delivering me from darkness and proving He was there.

While Satan works overtime to rob you of the truth, God came and died for you to show you of your worth. Scientist compel us to believe we evolved from an ape like species, no design but simply an accident…wondering how many had to die before evolution got it just right.

What a lie.
I don’t know what I can do…and I know it won’t be enough…when a whole world is pushing and shoving and struggling, the majority lost…I can’t imagine what I can do to undo the destruction…I can stand and shout the truth but who will listen? I live the proof, but still you turn away writing my living testimony off like it’s just a play. Well when the last act is finished and the curtain drops you better believe that everyone will kneel, everyone will drop…they won’t be able to deny the coming King in glory as He rides across the sky.

Every tongue will be declaring that Jesus Christ is Lord. My heart just aches so heavily for all who refuse Him now…please stop, please I am begging you…you are so precious…I love you, Jesus loves you, that’s why he gave his life for you…what’s so hard about believing and receiving that gift? Is it that you don’t like commitment, don’t want to be tied down? Maybe you want to be P.C. afraid to take a stand, don’t want to have to accept that someone is right and someone is wrong…instead lets all just get a long? I do you a disservice for letting you live that way…it’s nice to get along but I don’t want to see you perish due to my cowardly.

Let me tell you…Jesus is the only way…all the rest are naught. All roads do not lead to heaven and all god’s are NOT!!!! Oh please believe me!!!!

Lord God, remove their blinds…let them see you Glory divine!! Holy, holy, holy is the Lord almighty, His glory fills the whole earth…creation sings his praises and renders man without excuse. Stop with your stubbornness…break yee hard of hearts!!! Surrender and gain your freedom…or else you will be lost.

Lord, guide me as I write tonight. 

I have to serve You out of the overflow, out of the well if you will. I need to be full first though and so I read Your word…I search to know You deeply, I look to seek Your face. I think of all who have come before me, patriarchs of amazing faith. I can learn so much about You by studying their faith, all the ways that You supplied for them, guided them, and gave them a better place. I know this is Your heart for us, Your children, You want to give us good. I thank You for Your love for me and the way You show me daily that You have a plan for me. One that is for my good and not to bring me ruin, I trust You know whats best even when the road ahead is hard because I know You are just building my character, You are making me strong. I will persevere, I will finish the race and it will all be for You Lord and because of Your amazing grace. See, You are the one that empowers me, You guide me and give me peace, You are the glue that binds me and holds me to my place. You never will forsake me and You came to take my place, on that tree You hung there, when it should have been me. I can’t say thank you enough…I can’t say…Just know that I love You and I will spend the rest of my days glorifying You and singing Your praise. 

Lord, forgive me. Their are so many people who are lost. They don’t know You…or they don’t want to and I can’t change their hearts…I know that only You can do that…but I still try. I feel like I keep slamming myself against this stone wall willing it to break and instead the people leer at me, you know the expression on their face. They think that I am a lunatic, though all I seek to do is love, I am gentle in my approach…I don’t Bible thump. I recognize that You are a gentleman You want to be invited in…and yet the world makes You stay outside…they have not been trained to do what is right. In this world where wrong is right and night is day…everyone tries to hide away and all seem hurt and lost, You shine your light, it’s ever so bright and I just want to soak it in so that ones again I can meet the rock with my limbs and maybe it will budge. You said faith can move a mountain…well help me break this rock! 

 

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Or…not.  I have been trying this past month or so to set up my house in such a way that it will be easy to maintain and keep clean. It is no small task considering the sheer amount of stuff we have managed to amass over these past five years ( that’s how long my husband and I have been married). I don’t need all this stuff and since we are moving to Japan I know we can’t take it all with us so I have been going room to room, space, to space decluttering/ cleaning each space. I have been taking “before and after” shots of each space so maybe I will do a longer entry with pics a bit later (after the fact).

In any case this said, I realized today that I have an alarmingly short amount of time left before my land lords would like to put the house on the market and an extremely long “to do” list before it is ready. Can anyone say AHHHHHHH!!!! To make matters more complicated…because they want to put the house on the market in May and we do not move till June this means packing a lot of our stuff and storing it at friends houses until right before we move when I will then have to bring everything back and unpack it so that the military will pack it all for us and be “responsible” for the shipment. It is just a lot of work and I am feeling overwhelmed. Any words of encouragement and much prayer would be appreciated!!!

What do you think?

Follow the link!

I wanna know…what do you think? Do you think it’s just a cop out or do you understand that I, as a disciple of Jesus (one of His followers), can love you on one hand but on the other not support your life style, or some of your choices? Is that still okay? Can you still love me even though we wont ever agree on some very pivotal things? Like what? You ask. Well for starters, I love my gay friends…but I do not agree that gay marriage is right, not because I don’t want my friends to be happy but because God’s word says it’s wrong. I love my friends who have been divorced, but I don’t generally agree with divorce.  Marriage is a sacred covenant, created by God, intended to be an example of how He loves His church…it’s not to be entered into lightly or taken for granted, or made a mockery off.  I love my friends who have made the heart breaking mistake of having abortions but I do not think abortions are right…because the  Bible says we are fearfully and wonderfully made, that we are knit together in our mothers womb and that God knows us intimately before we are ever born…that baby has just as much “rights” as any other human being in America…or at least they should. Are you starting to see??? We don’t have to agree…but we can still be friends…right? Maybe not. It’s mostly up to you.
