Psalm 27:13-14

13 I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

Listen to The Waiting by Jamie Grace & I’ll Wait For You by Moriah Peters.

One Thing Have I Asked of the Lord...

I’ve always thought that David was asking for a future closeness with God. Like his request was a far-off dream. Then it hit me during prayer, that Psalm 27:4 is how David was living his life, and in that moment, how I was also living my life. :)

One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. (Psalm 27:4 ESV)

that time of year!

excited for lent this year. i love an excuse to challenge myself. lenting all the social media of course. and this year, adding on baked goods. its a weakness of mine (and gluttony is a sin). I know that I will get closer to God because I’ll have to pray for a lot of strength.

I’ll have to journal everything since hope church is also doing PDL for the next 42 days so I expect the next month-ish to be an awesome growth spurt. lord give me strength!

"One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple"

After taking a triumphant stand for God, Elijah receives a threat from Jezebel and runs for his life. Alone, Elijah plans to use his resting place as his grave site but God had other plans: to give Elijah life in the dry place.
We were meant to grow in difficult places. The fires and storms of life can threaten you but they cannot kill you. Even when everything around you is burnt down, dried up and laid to ruins, God placed everlasting seeds inside you to create an oasis within you in the desert. As long as you’re planted in The Lord, you will not be overcome, any weapon formed against you shall not prosper, and you will see His goodness in your lifetime. Don’t give up. Don’t you quit. God isn’t finished with you yet.
