My strength in life is I am Yours...

During a time when life is so full of crazy learning experiences, tests of faith, late nights and early mornings… I stop for a second to say “hello” to the outside world.
I wish I had some wonderful epicphany to share with you… I do, and I’m working on writing some down. But for now they’re just another journal entry.
Yet, here is a real story from my life.
A young girl’s heart being pursued by her own Creator.
The Son of God became human, and died, so she might have an abundant life.
His wonder captivates me. With every sunrise, every note of music, and every heartbeat.
This tired girl is often overwhelmed with how huge life is… and yet overwhelmed in the best of ways at how much He loves her.
I encourage you (if you are reading this somewhere) if you’re not sure of His love, that you will begin to seek His heart for life… 
I challenge you to ask Him to fill your life with things of Him… 
I exhort you to put aside whatever is distracting you from His will and begin a pursuit of wonder and awe.
I assure you, you will never be disappointed.
Jesus will meet you more than half-way, and His dreams for you are bigger than you could ever imagine!

1 Corinthians 2:9 (New King James Version)
But as it is written:
      “ Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
      Nor have entered into the heart of man 
      The things which God has prepared for those who love      

This week’s “Song on Repeat”: 
You Are My Passion – by Jesus Culture
Mirrors my heart these days completely…
 I'm alive to bring, glory to You, King
God of victory, You are my passion
It's in the way You are, You don't change at all
Great and humble God, You are my passion

My strength in life, is I am Yours
My soul delights because I am Yours
Your will on earth is all I'm living for

Jesus I glorify
Jesus my love is Yours
You are my heart's desire
I live to know You more

Light that breaks the darkness, showing what true love is
Always full of goodness, You are my passion
You never do me wrong, the meekest man but strong
The most perfect song, You are my passion
