Just A Little Breeze: Beat Speak →
My dearest friends,
I felt so compelled by the Lord yesterday to contact you and share this specific truth will you all. I desperately want to explain it to the full extent that which I feel, but that is neither my place nor my responsibility. Pray that the Lord may make your heart receptive to the truth that is within these lines. I want to give you guys a little look into my vulnerable heart, so that you may...
My biggest fear, even now, is that I will hear Jesus’ words and walk away,...– David Platt, Radical (via cdenisee)
i am good at a lot of bad things… wait, let me rephrase that… My flesh is good at longing after the things of the flesh. My eyes always wander and land upon other peoples relationships, lives, and ministries. Once my eyes get tired of glaring in amazement, my big analytical brain tries to measure up to that standard. its weird because what i tend to gaze at from afar in peoples lives...
I don’t think the process of bearing fruit is ever pretty. There is beauty in it and a sweet yet sometimes painful journey, but Jesus didn’t pretend that it was easy to follow him… that is why i love this quote. “The fruit is what really matters, not how gnarly or beautiful the apple tree is.” AW Tozer Luke 6:43-44 love love love, Yessenia
“Love is grand. But here’s the deal, if you are single, who said your love can only come from a romantic encounter? I’ve learned that I receive love in so many different ways. In so many different relationships. In ways that are peaceful, freeing, and fulfilling. I do not have to be completed outside of myself any longer” @goodwomenproject

Its a trip, because...
confession: i’m really good at feeling sorry for myself & running in circles with my self-pity. And i hate it. i think its fair and biblical to hate something like this. when i sit and mope and cry and whine and feel sorry for myself, i dismiss all the things God has done and i miss out of the JOY that is promised onto me by the truth that as His child, God is always for me… ...
thrilled because I am loved.
John Piper tweeted this earlier today and I loved it. “Why are you thrilled to be loved by Jesus? “ Here is my answer: I am thrilled to me loved by Jesus because He makes made me new. Every time I hear lies from saying otherwise, I can cling to the reality that He gave me new life. I am thrilled to be loved by Jesus because His sacrifice forever speaks over my life. I am...
i love this. i am again assured that i am called to intercede. thank you Jesus for the grace to remind me of that and giving me that calling. http://christopherlazo.com/2011/09/05/the-woman-who-wouldnt-stop-praying/
