Morning Rays!

5:34am. Stepping outside, the cold morning air met my flush face, giving it an awakening hello of brisk Autumn wind! I shut the door behind me, and with darkness still reigning in the sky, I made my way down the driveway, and to the sidewalk. I began walking and speaking with my King! While singing praise to His name, soft pinks and purples began to appear in the morning sky. The Artist had begun His painting! I stopped, amazed, and pondered His works- "When I consider Your heavens, the works of Your fingers, the moon and the starts, which You ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him...?" What glorious things You have made, my King! What beautiful works You have allowed us to see! Moments later, the sky was filled with oranges and blues, and the combination of the colorful light was breath-taking. Rays of majestic light filled both the horizon and my heart! The Artist completed His first wondrous work of the day! I stood amazed at it's beauty and anticipated the glory He would reveal at that evening's sunset!

Your creation, my King, is beautiful!

Immovable Me

Sometimes I wish that I wasn't so easily influenced by things. Not that what influences me is necessarily "bad", because I don't think it is. Its more of changes in opinion on a style of clothes, taste in music and movies, opinions on certain situations, etc. Not a huge deal, but when it changes what makes me ME, it becomes a problem. I don't want to be so easily influenced by other's opinions and styles. I want to be consistent and immovable when it comes to what I think and believe.

It's not all bad, though, because when I am doing something wrong and someone calls me out on it, I am quick to listen and change it. But again, its not so great when I do that in many different situations.

This is a babbling blog. Just stating, that I wish I wasn't so easily influenced. Praying that the Lord would give me consistency in my talk, dress, opinions, and actions and that He would give me discernment and wisdom on when and how to change what I am doing. He is faithful to give wisdom to those who ask it of Him. (James 1:5)

"But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy."
James 3:17

Holy, Pure, and Precious Blood

I AM forgiven, washed clean, made pure, and precious in the eyes of God because Jesus has washed me with His holy, pure, and precious blood. I am so thankful!
