Don’t pray that God would teach you how to love like He loves; pray that He would fill you with Himself and that He would love in and through you. Don’t pray that He would teach you to have joy; pray that the living God full of joy would enter into you. Don’t pray that He would teach you how to be peaceful; ask for the God of peace, the Prince of peace to infill you. Because if you try to imitate in your own strength, you will be a miserable replica. But if you allow the impartation of Jesus Christ to overtake you, suddenly it all works because it is Him imitating Himself, and He is very good at being God.
Try It More Today
Today is another privilege, another opportunity. Today is another hope, another chance.
Love more. Forgive more. Understand more. Be patient more. Hold nothing back. Be free. Walk on the street, smile on people. Sing with the birds, dance with the butterflies. Open your arms, and embrace all the blessings that await you.
Today, give it another try.
Today, let God work in and through your life.
Live more like Christ.
… because you can. :)
So let go my soul and trust in Him. The waves and wind still know His name
Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
Through it all, through it all
It is well with my soul
Also, have I ever mentioned that I love flowers? :)
Decided to stop in at this ranch for the night right by the North Cascades. And oh my goodness, it is heaven! Horses all around, ivy and flowers, new hiking friends, wildlife everywhere, right in the middle of nowhere with insane views. So much loveliness.
(Location at Mazama Ranch)
My kind of place. Natuuure! :’)
I can’t help my tears every time I think of Your deep and great love for me. I can’t thank You enough for the wonderful things that You’re doing in my life. I know my life is not perfect, my character is not perfect, my relationships are not perfect, but knowing that You are in each of them sets my heart in quietness and trust.
Yes, this is a state of quietness and trust no matter how hard the wind could blow and how big the waves could be. I am not afraid, Lord. I know who goes before me, I know who stands behind, I know who walks with me. It’s You, only You, my God.
I want to grow more in faith and in love. I want to learn more about the great things You are doing. I want to see the visions You see. I want to grasp what You want for me and for the lives of Your people. I want to be part of Your great story.
This is all about You, Jesus. All about You. :’)
I want to be a woman who thinks of God’s love whenever she stares at the flowers and watch them dancing as the wind blows.
I want to be a woman who smiles when she is riding on a bus because she suddenly remembers the Lord’s faithfulness to her.
I want to be a woman full of courage to stand for her belief because she knows that what she has is the only truth.
I want to be a woman who finds herself beautiful because her Savior says so.
I want to be a woman seeking applause from the One who perfectly knows her real worth.
I want to be a woman after His heart.
I want to be a woman who’ll find herself satisfied by Jesus alone because she knows that in Him she is always loved; she is so loved regardless of her past mistakes.
Yes, I want to be that woman.

He is in the process of turning us into this kind of woman. From glory to glory. God bless you, Ishi! :)
