Today my love

Today… you bring me peaceful satisfaction that only a Beautiful Creator could have dreamt up. His imagination for us is wild and adventurous, even in moments that feel common He is fusing me heart and soul to you… which is a miraculous thing to behold. Even though I have nothing to confess today (beyond my weakness and His strength), I know that the enemy is waiting for a chance to break our connection and steal our love away from each other. Pray that I would fight for us until death severs our earthly connection and bring us before His glorious face.

Sun breaking over horizon

Today… as I look out over the next few years we are only beginning to see the work He is doing. Paying off our debt and breaking free from materialism are just glimpses of the things He has planned. Our marriage is supposed to be a picture of redemption, from Christ to his bride. That story will be told and retold as we walk through different stages of life.

Today… I am grateful for your love and content with my life.

Words of Wisdom

I’ve been having a hard time with grace & mercy, justice & kindness this week.
I’m wrestling through some tough situations, & my emotions are running high.

{Blame it on the pregnancy if you’d like, but I don’t think it’d be any different if I wasn’t pregnant. It just makes all these situations that much more impeccably awful timing.}

I’m hurt. I’m angry. I feel bitterness building. I’m tired. I feel my willingness to love, sacrifice, & die to my self are slowly waning.

This morning especially, I’m reminded of

Micah 6:8

He has shown you, O man, what is Good.
And what does the Lord require of you, but to
do justly,
to love kindness & mercy,
& to walk humbly with your God?

Just what I needed to be reminded of.
