give me Jesus...


With all that's been happening lately, I feel myself clinging more and more and more to my Heavenly Father. I just can't get enough. I feel like I just want to curl up into a ball, at His feet, and like...rest there for eternity. I don't want to deal with all that's swirling on around me, anymore. 

Although that's not His will for me at this point- to be with Him in heaven, I know it's not a bad desire to have. 

God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way, and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, and the mountains quake with their surging."
- Psalm 46: 1-3

There's a song I have been listening to a lot lately. Basically what that means is, it's on repeat over and over throughout the day, some days. I'm like a toddler with their favorite movie- I need to have it in my life all. day. long. 

Now this isn't a new song- in fact I've heard it many times before. But it wasn't until this year that I really listened to it- to the lyrics. The lyrics spoke such truth to me- pierced right through my heart. It breathed such life...and was (IS!) just such an encouragement. I hope it will find your heart and encourage you as well.

So, I created a new desktop and have it up as a reminder that I am not a part of this world. I am in it, therefore I must endure (through Christ) it's hardships, but I am only passing through. This is such a wonderful reminder that my hope, strength, refuge...everything rests upon Jesus and the fact that one day, I will be with Him in that place that is, but is not yet. 

Should you also need encouragement, I've made this available to you guys as well. Just find what size you need, click the link, save it to your computer, and use as your very own desktop (iPhone, blog wall, iPad) background. 
"I will say of the Lord, 'He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
- Psalm 91: 2

  1. I love Gimme Jesus by Jeremy Camp. So healing. I've been thinking a lot about your friend Stephanie. I'm trying to wrap my brain about why a momma has to go through this and be away from her babies. Breaks my heart... but I pray and pray for her and them!
