In case you want to see the Candy project my family and I embarked on (against our better judgment but it was still crazy fun), here you go.
In partnership with Holy Spirit—oh gosh, how I long to do this well.
Today, thousands of family members are worshipping in DC and it has my attention.
Grace and kindness are powerful responses to choose. Anger and condescension may feel strong, but the way of the Spirit is far more influential.
A short Tuesday reflection.
Desire. To open our desires before the Lord–completely and transparently–and to have real conversation about them: I think the Lord craves these conversations with us. The more reconciled we become to His original heart for us, the more this dialogue critically matters. This is a regular, inward hunger in me so often these days: to … Continue reading “365 Day 204: October 19, 2020”
This video is black because I’m recording with a migraine, but the heart is there nonetheless. Were not our hearts burning?…
This was a soul-tending day—but it’s possible I’m a rare breed in considering house projects, yard work and family time as “soul-tending.” But truly–as I lay here tonight, I am fully tended. What a gift.
Video #200! YEAH!
I often hear us telling the Lord “we want more.” I’m not altogether sure we’ve soberly considered what we’re asking for.
Imagine the horror: the girl who likes to think being taught that sometimes, pausing to think is the inferior response.
That said, this is hard work. I literally just want to Facebook sheerly out of reflex. Gracious sakes. Haha–oh well–I ended up seeing a sweet encouraging post from a dear friend, so it must have been a Holy Spirit reflex! *chuckle*
Here are the Hebrew lyrics the child sings: A-shir-ra i’a-do-nai ki ga-oh ga-oh(I will sing to the lord for he has triumphed gloriously)A-shir-ra i’a-do-nai ki ga-oh ga-oh(I will sing to the lord for he has triumphed gloriously)Mi-cha-mo-cha ba-elim adonai(Who is like You, oh Lord, among the celestial)Mi-cha-mo-cha ne-dar-ba-ko-desh(Who is like You, majestic in holiness)Na-chi-tah v’-chas-d’-cha … Continue reading “365 Day 195: October 10, 2020”
Once you’ve learned how to say no, saying yes is the best adventure.
Honesty. Are there levels, and if so, isn’t it wise to reserve some layers of honesty for…for safe places? Or is it possible that if my heart is operating in divine identity and purity, my every ounce of honesty will be accompanied with the finesse, grace and courage required? And if not–why do I feel … Continue reading “365 Day 193: October 8, 2020”
It can be so easy, when we are feeling the All the Big Feelings, to look around and place blame. It doesn’t take much for the voice of the victim to come screaming to the surface of our consciousness. But we are responsible for our feelings. What’s more: it is our Father who has given … Continue reading “365 Day 192: October 7, 2020”
Today’s a big day so this is just a check-in post. See ya tomorrow.
I want to rediscover what His grace is. I don’t want to lean on what I think I already know.
Saturday came and went without a video–oh well. It was worth it!
There are things of the Lord we have not yet seen, experienced, nor do we have intimate connection with those aspects of His personality. It’s pretty important we do not shrug off the unfamiliar simply because it does not yet resonate.
