weary and burdened

I must say, I am disheartened by ignorant people! I am facing a Pharaoh of my day, one whose heart is so hard. I praise God for his deliverance and protection for the good name of His people. I praise Him that He knows my heart; He knows the truth; He will shine His light and expose the liar. Until that day, I thank Him for his strength and encouragement to continue in this journey... that is... so hard at times.

Our Nation's Youth

I am brought to tears so often with how lost these kids are, how broken their homes are, and how hardened they are to love! It BREAKS me. The youth here cry out for someone to love them, care for them, and accept them just as they are. Their cries look and sound different: they are gun shots, stab wounds, beatings, bruises, hate, and hardened hearts. These kids endure so much with little guidance. God give me knowledge and strength to love these kids who are so precious to you!

Just thinking

I was driving home yesterday and was thinking about how patient God is with us. I am amazed that God sees his Son in regard to our sin. I am amazed that He doesn't get rid of us, but is patient and faithful to his promises. We have an amazing God!

Be Still

I was in my room yesterday trying to spend some quiet time with the Lord. I kept hearing my dogs barking, the air conditioner unit humming and the neighbors talking outside. I got super frustrated and decided to take some time in the only place in my house where there is absolutely no noise, my closet (ironic as it may sound). As I sat there pouring out my heart and requests, I felt as though I really just needed to be still and quiet my heart. I sat for an hour or so in quiet and solitude. It was amazing. I didn't hear the audible voice of God, but I felt at peace. I have experienced the touch of God before and the peace that goes along with that; what happened yesterday was not like that. It was just a sense of closeness to God that included rest for my soul. After a long day at work and after filing all of the "to do's" for tomorrow, I was able to sit and be still.

If you are reading this and have not sat in solitude away from the noise of this world, do it. Find a place to go for a couple of hours and sit before the Lord. Be still and know that He is God!
