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.

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.

"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
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…
