altogether Beautiful...

That is what my Jesus is to me. His voice is sweet, and His form is lovely. The most amazing, incomprehensible thing, though, is that I am altogether Beautiful to Him.

I am a daughter of the King. I am a friend of sinners. I am confident that nothing shall separate me from the love of God. I am seeking a heart after God's own heart. I am righteous in Jesus Christ, apart from the works of the law. I am not ashamed of the Gospel.

My heart is HAPPY!!!!
Not sure what made the difference, except God. I was sitting on my porch feeling just down and sad, and I realized (duh) that my joy comes from the Lord!
So I asked Him to work in me and give me joy, and then I read the entire book of Proverbs (so cool!!) and my heart just got happier and happier.
I'm very grateful for the day off.

My brother is in the United States Navy.

Today is Memorial Day, and I cried a lot during church. A wonderful young man came up and gave me a hug while I was crying, in direct answer to my prayers. I love the family of God.

Daniel Fagala told me that my brother, Luke, has been the greatest influence on his spiritual walk, and that he loves him and is praying for him. He said that at times Luke has impacted him even without saying a word. Luke is a man that follows God openly and in secret. He's in the Navy and I'm proud of him.

Today I remember Peter Wagler, a hero, killed in action.

Thank you Peter. Thank you Luke. I love and honor you both.

If Jesus had a blog, what would he post?

my heart...

My heart is sad.

I don't really know why. Nothing terrible has happened.

Two nights ago was very joyful!! Three friends sat in a beautiful place and shared the love of God together. There we sat, on a bench, for almost two hours... and I don't think there was any other place any one of us would have gone to if we could.

God's love is so deep. He gave Rebecca a beautiful present today! I was on the phone with her to enjoy it. God is so good.

Behold, the Bridegoom cometh! And we run forth to meet Him. But the glory is in the Bridegroom, Himself, not in our joy, not in our meeting, not in our running- in Him. Himself. The BRIDEGROOM.

I am the bride of Christ. Why? I will never understand.

"Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
and the things of earth will grow strangely dim
in the light of His glory and grace."

I love you all. But most of all, I love Christ. Glory to God that He has made me righteous in His presence, and that He will perfect that which He has begun, and that He WILL present me as a SPOTLESS, PURE bride to Christ Jesus His Son.

I will be perfected in Christ Jesus.

Proverbs 14:1

"Every wise woman buildeth her house, but the foolish teareth it down with her own hands."

God is so good, and so powerful, and never easy. His yoke is easy and His burden is light, but the path of Christ leads us first to calvary, then to the right hand of the throne of God.

I am confident, and rejoicing, in God's work and plan for my life.

I went to Rigoletto's with Toni and Lauree Beth today! It is a lunch stop in the tunnels underground OKC. I saw my friend, a beautiful, black, almost-75, "big momma" type woman. I really need to learn her name, she doesn't know mine either, but she is truly a delight and I and my friends always seem to bring a bright ray of sunshine into her day. Today when she looked up and saw me she came hurredly out from behind the counter and gave me a bear hug! That woman can hug :-) I am so grateful that she is finding the joy of God in her life, and that I can be there to see Him in her eyes and smile.

a journey...

I am beginning a journey. I don't know where the path will wind, but I know where I want to go... I want to go to the heart of God. I haven't packed very well, but I don't need much. Just my Jesus, my Bible, a heart willing to follow... and my body under subjection. This last item is the hardest, but the most neccessary, at this time I believe, in knowing God in a new way. How else can we identify with the sufferings of Christ?

Pray for God's strength for me. Pray for His grace, His unmeritted favor. I want His strength perfected in my weakness.

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." ~2Corinthians 12:9

God is So Good

Jesus, You are beautiful beyond description, too marvelous for words, too wonderful for comprehension, like nothing ever seen or heard. Who can grasp Your infinant wisdom? Who can fathom the depth of Your love? You are beautiful beyond description, Majesty! enthroned above! Holy God, to Whom all praise is due, I stand in awe of You.

There are not words to express my soul to God at this time.
He is too magnificent.
Just know that I love Him.
And He loves me.
And He loves you, too, more than you will ever know.

No right to blog

I have no right to blog right now, as I have only completed 10 hrs. of my 11 hr. per day work/study program to complete all of my assignments by Monday! And yet, here I sit, strangely inspired to blog by the imminent, pressing need to study.

Yes, I know, my brother is good looking. Excuse me, "brother's Are good looking." Don't be jealous, there handsome-guy enzymes in the country water here at home... maybe that's what happened...

I did finish the first draft of one paper, I guess I'll see if it's any good tomorrow. Tomorrow I write a researach paper. I am planning on writing the entire first draft before I go to bed tomorrow night. I think I can do it. No, I'm sure I can.

Sisters are great. If you have a sister, you should call her.

God has been so phenominally good lately, I cannot even begin to describe it. I had a good weekend, a really, really good weekend.

Have you ever thought about God in the context of/ in relation to/ the universe? Driving home on Saturday night I was brought to tears as a friend explained the magnitude of our universe. Stars, so far away, that it takes years for their light to reach the earth. Every single piece of sky is blanketed with stars- there is no spot in the night sky that is not filled with a star which you could see if only you had a telescope big enough. What of other universes? What of other planets? What of other life? God is So BIG, so ENORMOUS, so POWERFUL, so CREATIVE, so MASTERFUL... and of all of his creation, he is OUTSIDE of it! Our very reality was created by God. Our entire universe is inside a box created by Him, and He is outside of it, unrestrained, unrestrainable. Every thing we see, everything we create, was first created. By all things came into being, and without Him was not anything made that was made. We create nothing, we just move things around. As my friend was talking I began to feel so... small, realizing how insignificant not only I am, but my entire earth, my entire reality, my entire existence and all of the things around me. But then, in the heart of that moment, I heard in my heart and in my ears... that I am significant- because I am significant to God. I realized, For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son. And He has a plan for our lives. And we are equipped to fulfill it, not because of us, but because of Him.

Oh that men and women would realize this!! Anyway, about an hour + conversation which was one of the most moving I have experienced in a very long time. From the expance of the universe, the fiber of the very molecules and adams with which all is created. Just unbelievable. I prayed last night that that conversation would be written down and kept in the record of God. I cannot remember every word or every detail, but I wish that I could, and I hope that sometime, someday, God will bring back the words that were spoken and the truth that was revealed to my heart.

I have so much more to say, esp. about God Himself, but for now... I will simply keep His commandments. In what other way can we glorify Him?
