I am...

Nothing without Jesus...

This song is so Precious. Because in the Eyes of my Saviour I am Beautiful, aside from all of the ugly, heart-aches, hardships and mistakes in this life.

I just love that Jesus can take a pink crayon and color in the black and white in my story that He is writing coloring. That he can show me that he is smiling when the sun shines down on me. That in my weakness, in MY weakness I am made strong in Him.(2Corinthians 12:10 That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.) Praise the Lord! That when I feel like the only thing I need is to be squeezed in the arms of Jesus, He is there squeezing my heart. 

You know, as I type this...I am realizing that I don't even realize How good He truly is until I take the time to say, Amen. 

But I am Realizing that I am, Treasured, I am, Sacred and that I am...His.

As I wait...

When my soul has cried it's tears and my heart begins to faint...will you draw near? Will you meet with me? 

Jesus put this song on my heart this week. 

As I type this I am so desperate for some Jesus lovin'. 

I am so grateful for this life I have been given. And yet, I don't show it enough. Or express it. (I will work on that Jesus, thank you for your patience). 

I am so in need of YOU.

I wanna' be....


The last thing I need is to be Selfish. To be Heard for what I want. 

I wanna' be still and know, Jesus Is Here. And be able to Rest in knowing "Just" that. 

Beyond the noise I want to Hear His Voice. 

Here's my heart. Take and seal it.

He is Good. 2 Corinthians 12:9 “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”  
In my weakness

Thank you Jesus! (:

Didn't you know?

...that I am always searching for your Heart. I just had one of those shocker moments when God's just like "Hey YOU! Yeah you! The one who has started to stray..." Yeah. That's me. I Have to work on this. Ya know. The Jesus bit. 

I saw this on Pinterest (my latest "thing".) and it just "clicked"! Do you ever have those clicky moments? Yeah? So then you know how I feel. It says, "You don't know, do you? That in a crowded place my eyes will always Search for you." Ah... the way it made me feel when I read this. It was like. "hi Jesus!" You know what I'm saying? Yes, no, maybe so.

The way my heart read it was more like this, "You forget my daughter, in your so called busy life I am always here. I am always wanting to be closer to your Heart always. You forget. But I Never forget. I know your Heart. And your name. You are my child. Even when your life gets in the way, I am always the same. Today, yesterday, and forever. The same." 

Do you ever feel like life is "crowded?" I sure do. And boy, I need to shove a few things outta' the way. Meaning...life is crowded but that doesn't mean Jesus is the "thing" that needs shoved out of the way. He wants me. Yeah, He wants me. I just need to de-clutter my life. And make more room for Jesus. It should really go, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. Not um...yeah I need Jesus...but I'll be okay to not pray today or tomorrow. What this "saying" brought to my attention was, well, all of this. And reminded me of Who Jesus is to me. And that is Everything. He wants my heart. And I want His. He never gives up on me. 

Thank goodness He died for me. 
Thank goodness He forgave me. 
Thank goodness He never LEAVEs me.

It's a happy day! Because the more I realize I need Him, He shows me so much. What a Good God we have! He meets my needs. Every. Single one.

I hope you are having a happy day!

True dat...

Some times I forget...God's love never fails Me. Or you.

Speaking of this wonderous thing called LoVe...
I am realizing that It's the little things in this life that make the heart over flow. 

Like my little kid brother and his never fail to make me laugh. Even when he's not funny. He makes me laugh anyways. 

Like my sweet Grandma, Memee, who took the time to collect treasures all through her life and share them with her future...things like this.
Like the moment Jesus squeezes your hand and says "It'll all be alright just hold tight". 

Like...coloring pictures (outside the lines of course). 

Like the song says "Our God is greater, Our God is stronger, our God is higher than any other", sometimes like the little things that make my heart over flow this one is the most affective. 
That my God is greater then Disneyland. That my God is stronger then my Dad. That my God is my life that He should come first. And His love is forever and ever and ever and well...ever. 

"When I kneel in prayer I hope to meet you there, Blessed Jesus, hold my hand."

You, Jesus...

lift me up when I am weak. 

He is the FIGHTER for the hopeless... 

Your love Catches me. 
Your heart is all that I need. 

You Jesus will never LEAVE me Or FORSAKE me. You are my forever, true, Friend for all eternity. 

Psalm 9:9 
The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.

Help me to be a seeker of you Jesus. 

Will you come close...

You've opened my eyes so I can see you all around me. Because YOU are with me.
