The measurer of life loves me even then…

 

It’s a fear that keeps me wide awake in the middle of the night. When the expectations are too great and the bar gets raised too high. So I do the best with what I’ve got and hope that no one knows that I strain to see how high I can try to stand on these toes until I’m measured, but You know better.

We raise the standard and try to reach You, but we’ll never make it, and we don’t need to. 

So thank you Jesus, even when You see us just as we are: fragile and frail and so far from who we want to be. Thank you Jesus even when the pieces are broken and small. Dreams shatter and scatter like the wind, thank you, even then.


You can take my dry bones; breathe life into this skin. You called me by name and raised me to life again.

You can calm the oceans; speak peace into my soul. Take me as I am. Awaken my heart to beat again.

Oh Jesus, Oh Jesus, Oh Jesus…Alive in me.

You move in the unseen. You set the captives free. As I stand and sing you’re breaking the chains off me.

Breathe in me Your life. I can feel You are close now. I can never hide. You are here and You know me. All I need is You and I love You. 

Breathe in me Your life ’til Your love overtakes me. Open up my eyes. Let me see You more clearly. Falling on my knees ’til I love like You love like You love me. I love You. 

Oh Jesus, Oh Jesus, Oh Jesus…Alive in me.

You look around, staring back at you another wave of doubt, will it pull you under? You wonder what if I’m overtaken? What if I never make it? What if no one’s there? Will You hear my prayer?
So get out, and let your fear fall to the ground. No time to waste, don’t wait, and don’t you turn around and miss out on everything you were made for, I know you’re not sure so you play it safe, you try to run away.
When you take that first step into the unknown you know that He won’t let you go.So what are you waiting for? What do you have to lose? Your insecurities, they try to hold to you, but you know you’re made for more, so don’t be afraid to move. Your faith is all it takes, and you can walk on the water, too.

Think about who I AM in all My Power and Glory; ponder the depth and breadth of My Love for you, realizing my blessings flow directly from my hand of grace.

Sarah Young “Jesus Calling”

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith…not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:8-10

"There is only one relationship that really matters and that is your personal relationship to your personal Redeemer and Lord. If you maintain that at all costs, letting everything else go, God will fulfill His purpose through your life." Oswald Chambers

A lesson that I am still continuing to learn…

A lesson that I am still continuing to learn…

I am turning a new page in my young adult life. I just turned 20 and with the Lord’s strength and never failing love I am trading in my insecurity for boldness. So far it has taken a physical toll, leaving my stomach in constant turmoil. Thank you Lord for the opportunities that you have given me and for the challenges that I never thought I would make it through. There is nothing I can do apart from you. You turned my world upside down less than a year ago and I have never been more thankful for those hard moments than I am right now at this very moment. I am in love with the King of Kings…
