Marriage is such a failed institution.

Sufficient

Realizing that the most blessed times come from letting myself go, putting others first, and putting my issues on hold for a sec. It’s so worth it to share the gospel with my words or my actions. 

It’s not from anything I can do, but that when I am weak, I am strong. Learning to rely on God’s grace. Knowing that it is sufficient. 

Like a good Samwise Gamgee, Kristen is there!

7 people? OKAY!

Very blessed to be able to host a bunch of freshman randomly. That they would even want to come to our apartment! That my roommates are amazingly patient with me and allow us to intrude on their time. I’m so thankful for the way God is growing all of us.. Blessed that we cleaned our apartment, for it to not be used.. because it can be used for things like this. Loving all of them more and more. K,A,M,C,E,M,S, and special guests K and E, and my apartmentmates= stressful but good times. 

You are worthy. And because You are worthy, all of your children are worthy of all. Whether it be work through us, or love poured out upon us. 

"He must increase, but I must decrease." John 3:30

Been fighting things that I can’t see
Like voices coming from the inside of me and
Like doing things I find hard to believe in
Am I myself or am I dreaming?

I’ve been awake for an hour or so
Checking for a pulse but I just don’t know
Am I a man when I feel like a ghost?
The stranger in the mirror is wearing my clothes

No, I’m not alright
I know that I’m not right
A steering wheel don’t mean you can drive
A warm body don’t mean I’m alive

No, I’m not alright
I know that I’m not right
Feel like I travel but I never arrive
I wanna thrive not just survive

"Thrive" by Switchfoot 

Laments

so I say, “My endurance has perished;
so has my hope from the LORD.”
Remember my affliction and my wanderings, 
the wormwood and the gall! 
My soul continually remembers it 
and is bowed down within me.
But this I call to mind,
and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
"The LORD is my portion," says my soul, 
"therefore I will hope in him."
-Lamentations 3:18-24

Perfectly timed verse from an email from a friend.. or from God? hm.

i can’t reblog it enough, please get this through your skulls. i can’t walk home at night past 10 pm without being terrified that every guy that hollers at me is going to follow me home. it’s fucked up. it’s unfair. our culture sucks. we need to fix it. rape is never okay. never. if the rapist is the girl’s boyfriend it still counts. rape is rape. no is no. no answer is no. you shouldn’t beg and plead until someone’s uncomfortable. take the hint. end this bullshit.

Too much Extrovert. I’ve been talking to people all day and I still feel alone. Although in my defense it was only over technology, it’s not the same. 

Power

I could do this every single day. It’s so worth it. Every hour, every pain. Every moment where you thought it was going to end badly. All the awkwardness, ALL OF IT. IS worth the sake of the gospel. 

Because what else can fill this emptiness but the Love of God? And who are we to keep it to ourselves! 

Abstaining

The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God.

- Romans 14:6

A good reminder for me when it starts to get hard…

Ridiculously happy. Letting go of the past. Starting a new future. Baby steps of faith though my legs shake. All by the grace of God. Or as ridiculously said on the super bowl, “If God is for us, who can be against us?”

Covenantal. Word of the Year. 

I don’t like being alone. 

Lord, save me from myself.
