Psalm 4:8

"You have put into my heart an even greater JOY, more than abundance of corn and new wine." ~~ Psalm 4:8


My heart is bursting with JOY!


The Lord is truly my DELIGHT.  He knows me oh so well.  He knows my needs. He knows everything about me.


His plan is the BEST plan.  And, as it unfolds in my life, I am truly filled so much that I feel I might burst!  His JOY is ever radiant upon my face!


Goodnight.  Sweet dreams.

hurrrumphhh

Love me or leave me; I'm still taking applications.

Jesus brings MUCH peace to my life!  He is the Reason my JOY is so full.  And, He is the reason I am not in a frozen dairy-immersed in cake-chocolate covered coma.  Jesus is my HIGH!

Only 3.5 more days til 4 days of bliss - a personal retreat up in the mountains of Georgia.  With about 60 other youth ministers!  Praise the Lord for this opportunity.  AND, I get to re-connect with a bunch of people I haven't seen in like 4 years!  yippee!

Jesus is My Constant

Ever feel trapped...seriously...sometimes I feel that way...that I am truly unable to express myself online as then all sorts of people comment on it, as to how I really felt...whatever...thank goodness I feel trapped for like 3 seconds, and then I'm like WHATEVER!!!!


Today was spiritual direction...at PF Changs...yeah, I know that's weird...but what can you do...plus, I didn't have to drive 90 miles...so yeah.


Well, let's get directed....where are my feet?  are they above the ground?  how far?  Will it be a soft or crash landing when I land?


Cloud nine is nice, but what about reality.  Stay close.  Jesus is my constant and has been for a REALLY long time.  And, He will continue to be.  He's showing me just how much.


He truly is my ONE and ONLY.  No one can compare.  But, they do try.  He is the CENTER of all my relationships.


I will not crash land into a frozen dairy-wrapped cake-covered in chocolate coma.  Adoration is where I'll land.  Knowing that God's plan is BEST.  And, the HOPE I have in Him will take me places I'd have never gone on my own.


Also, that, there's a time for everything. Being a priority is what I need, not someone to run to, that's what God is for!  and there has to be someone else in your life that can give you that accountability to let go, not me.  I want/need more.  When do I stop being a shoulder to lean on?


Lord, give me the grace to withstand more heartache, but give me the courage to take the risk!  Don't let me sit idly by!

2010

Living in the present moment...Trusting in God's plan for ME.  I have HOPE that He will provide.

New stuff happening...but won't be sharing on here just yet.  Thanks for your prayers.  

But, seriously, YIPPEEE!  Life is GOOD.  No one can steal my JOY.  JESUS is My CONSTANT!

Youth Ministers on retreat next week!  Whoo-hoo!

I am patiently waiting.  I know, some of you want details, but I'm not sharing. 

Just know that I am at peace and God fills me with JOY every day!
