“With my whole heart I cry; answer me O Lord! I will keep your statutes. I call to you; save me, that I may observe your testimonies. I rise before dawn and cry for help; I hope in your words. My eyes are awake before the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promise.”. Psalm 119:145-148
I want to live a life that honors God. I want to keep His statutes. I want to hope in His words. But I fail….often. And I hate it. I want to be someone who lives up to His expectations, not the expectations of man. But I am weak and find myself discouraged because I haven’t achieved or become that spiritual giant that makes a difference in this world for Christ. I am neither disciplined or wise enough to be that person. But the five words in this Psalm that are true for me are “I hope in your words”. I know His Word is filled with promises that are true. His Word has inspired me, comforted me, encouraged me, challenged me and moved me. I may not make much of a difference in this world, but I will always believe and cling to His Word.

"About you"? It is hard to declare any one thing or even a few things that would be of any interest to anyone! I love God. I know that I am His child, and I waver between being totally overwhelmed with His love, grace and mercy in my life, to being overwhelmed with how fast life is passing and how bad a job I have done at living this life He has given me. I often wonder if anyone else is out there walking around trying to act normal (which, if I may insert here, is really a relative term to everyone...what is normal?). About me? I am complicated! I love God with all my heart and want to serve Him with all my heart and want to do something important with all my heart and yet, this life I live everyday, doesn't seem to line up with that. More than anything - I want to be a published writer. I want to have the time to go to places that are surrounded by the sound of crashing waves and breezes and just listen. Or, to sit on a deck of some remote cabin and listen to the whisper of God's voice in the trees. I wonder.....I wonder if those moments will ever come?
