In October i read Psalm 103 every single day.

Sometimes I loved it, sometimes it felt monotonous. But after some time i realised the truths in this are satisfying enough to last not just a month but forever. Every day I keep hearing the same thing.

He loves me. He loves me.

My sin is not held against me. I am washed. I am reading impossible truths made not just possible, but earth-shatteringly real, through the death and resurrection of Jesus:

The eternal God who is King over all loves my fleeting, fickle heart. I am full of iniquity, disease, in the pit, deserving of anger, sinful, like dust and grass, fleeting. But He is Forgiver. Healer. Redeemer. Steadfast. Merciful. Satisfying. Renewing. Righteous. Known. Slow to Anger. Abounding in Love. Remover of Sin. Father. Compassionate. Everlasting. Lord. King.

Think about reading it every day of November. I can testify that feasting on those truths each morning radically changed the responses of my heart to the circumstances of October.

If you or your blog is Christian

Please reblog and follow those who reblog. I’m looking to establish a network of Christians that are committed to prayer for one another and for a semi-public internet space to be open and deeply honest about struggles and fears. We are called to community and genuine love. Wherever this reaches, I hope you will publicly declare yourself a Christian and be unafraid to ask difficult questions and ask for help via prayer. Let’s use the internet to strengthen the church and each other’s faith.

The grass withers and the flowers fade but the word of our God endures forever.
—  Isaiah 40:8 KJV
You don’t have to be in a church to experience the Holy Spirit.
He can flood our souls like an all-consuming Fire in the midst of a joyful congregation,
but He is also in the quietest rooms where tears rest on pillowcases
and with His all-powerful yet delicate voice, He whispers comfort to every beat of the heart.

finished Leslie Ludy’s ‘Sacred Singleness’ today. I learnt so many beautiful and helpful truths about the great Love Story I have with Jesus. But today what struck me most as I finished off a book that holds truths which will hold my weary heart as I battle with contentment in Christ alone were these three little words. 

He is worthy.

He is worthy of all our hearts, souls, minds, bodies. He is worthy to willingly lay down our lives at His feet and say, 'Wherever You would call me.’ He is worthy of all our adoration and praise, even without any earthly love at all. He is worthy of my heart’s yearning for true love, for He is the only One that can truly satisfy me. 

He is worthy.
