Time to read. Holy Spirit, cleanse me. Fill me. “Go with Me.” “Follow Me.” Man shall not live on bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. #calmingbreeze #gentlewhisper #HolySpirit #myJesustime #mmmm

Mother’s Day #ootd. 
God has truly blessed me with a wonderful mom. I am so thankful for our close relationship with one another. Don’t know where I’d be or who I’d be without her. I love you much, mom. #mommasboy #greatminds #Godissogood #hallelujah

Seek God

3/9/14

"After Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it, he went up to the Lord’s Temple and spread it out before the Lord. …

'Bend down, O Lord, and listen! Open your eyes, O Lord, and see! Listen to Sennacherib's words of defiance against the living God.'” (Isaiah 37:14,17)

Despite the “proof” from the enemy—proof that they can conquer any god, proof that no god can protect you—Hezekiah sought out the Lord. He prayed and pleaded God to resolve the situation. No matter how insurmountable the hardship, fear, or darkness of the situation, he trusted God. And God, faithful and true, carried out His Word, and He protected Israel and defeated the enemy.

Deathly love

3/8/14

“Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm.

For love is as strong as death, its jealousy as enduring as the grave.

Love flashes like fire, the brightest kind of flame.

Many waters cannot quench love nor can rivers drown it.

If a man tried to buy love, with all his wealth, his offer would be utterly scorned.” (Young Woman, in Song of Solomon 8:6-7)

May we find wives who yearn for this. May we find husbands to cry out to with this. May we all cry out to Christ like this. And may Christ continue to reveal His deep, passionate, relentless love for you.
