one day soon, these fears will be put to rest
extinguished like a fire
put out like time-out
killed like a pesky fly.
I only pray it happens before he comes--
before I know he is coming
so that in You this heart may be blessed.

the mind knows it is irrational to question
stupid to doubt
not of You to buy the lie,
because Your love is always enough
always abounding
always true
no exceptions.

it is a process, though
and for that there is grace
but let the process be progressive rather than
clearing rather than
and securing rather than

A heart is fragile and unable to be controlled
but You are greater
than our hearts
more powerful
than emotions
bigger than
past bruises and scrapes.

In You alone, I find rest
In You alone there is peace
"When the battle rages
for all that I am
You hold my future
in the palm of Your hand."

I am choosing to surrender that which gives me life,
for it is only given when it is lost
and since You have already paid the cost
I am trusting your plan over

"Send me your light and your faithful care,
   let them lead me;
let them bring me to your holy mountain,
   to the place where you dwell.
4 Then I will go to the altar of God,
   to God, my joy and my delight.
I will praise you with the lyre,
   O God, my God.
 5 Why, my soul, are you downcast?
   Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
   for I will yet praise him,
   my Savior and my God" --Psalm 43:3-5


  1. I love this. I love you.

    You are beautiful, worthy, compassionate, caring, selfless, joyous, and lovely.

    You're worthy because He made you worthy. You are beautiful because He knit you together. You are compassionate, caring, selfless, joyous, and lovely because you seek His heart, and He has given you His heart and Spirit.

    That is all.

  2. "When the battle rages
    for all that I am
    You hold my future
    in the palm of Your hand."

    I love this. Phrased so beautifully and wonderfully expressing deep, abiding trust in the King of kings. This is the fulcrum, the tipping point of life. Praise God fro
