When No One Knows Your Name

I felt like I needed to share something that has been on my heart lately. I have been rereading my almost illegible scribbles in my journal on this experience for a few weeks, trying to decide whether I should share it or not. I finally gave in and did it… so here it is.

For a few months now, I had been feeling very much like I don’t matter, or that I am a failure, that I don’t fit in, and am insignificant and unknown. I have felt very lost and unsure what I was supposed to be doing, and how I fit into His plan for me. Read more…

The First Promise of the Messiah ~ Advent 2014 Day 1

This is a story of Redemption. And it goes all the way back to The Garden. When man falls short and creates a huge gap between God and His children, and when God announces His plan and promise to redeem His children, and someday bridge the gap once again. He gives hope, and begins making the Way…

O Come, Let Us Adore Him ~ Jesus is Calling (Advent 2014)

He invites us to His nativity. To see God take on helpless humility for us. To witness centuries of promises and prophecies fulfilled one holy night.

Nothing will keep me from You.
Nothing will stop me from following You — wherever You lead.

Let the evening come, and the day’s burdens go

“Lord, we let evening come & let go of the weariness, of the edginess,
let evening come & let go of the weight of things done & not done, said & not said, held tight & not held tight enough.

We let evening come & let the day’s burdens go
and linger with its blessings… the grace of Your caress in forgiven things.”
