After only three days away, I have returned to find myself feeling more displaced than ever. I love my city, I love my friends… but I can’t stop feeling as if there is so much MORE to all of this. Wandering through the mountains and living devoid of money and transportation was more comforting than I could have ever imagined. I’m ready to sack it all and take off.
I live an amazing life. Yesterday was amazing, today is going to be amazing, and I know the most amazing God in all of the great, wide universe. My cup runneth over.
I want to be a woman who lives totally abandoned to the first commandment. To...– Misty Edwards (via heisjealousforme, classyliving)
Some days it’s a little harder to breathe than others. Like today. But that’s just because my nose has more snot in it than… well, something that has a lot of snot in it. I was going to be witty and come up with something clever, but I’m sick and my brain only half-works right now. I feel like a big jerk. In the past two days, all I’ve done is be sick and tired...
my head hurts
sleep commencing… NOW
Your disappointment used to hurt me. It used to wreck my life, break my bones, and cause me to spiral down, down, down. Then, it made me angry. I would curse at you, yell at you, argue every point possible in my defense. I was up in arms, building walls to keep you and your disdainful eyes off of me. Now, it’s normal. I’m surprised how easily I can shrug you off, like a dirty blanket...
“What do you do when I’m gone?” “Wait for you to come back.”
To love and be loved by God, that’s all that matters. Because, in the assurance of His love, I can endure anything. And in doing deeds for the love of Him, I can accomplish anything. What a beautiful thing.
With each passing day, I fall more and more in love with You. There was another life-changing sunset today, and I’m pretty sure you made it just for me. Engrave days like this on my heart, because I don’t ever want to forget our love story. I never want to forget the revival of my heart. Love, Jaded-No-More
I LOVE IHOP!!!!

“dear world, i like the idea that somewhere, you’re hiding my love! sometimes, i imagine that we’re doing the same mundane things at the same time…waiting as the time counts down until the day that we finally meet. that makes the whole world beautiful to me. thank you. —a dreamer”
Song of Solomon 4:9
I just got back from a run. Yes, you heard me: a run. (If you know me at all, you’re most likely confused, seeing as I hate exercising. Which is weird, since I’m a lifeguard at a YMCA. But that’s neither here nor there) Usually, when I have too many thoughts in my head, I work them out one of two ways: cleaning my room, or going for a run. My room is filthy, and for some...
The real question isn’t about whether or not leading worship is my calling. It’s not where or when I will find my “big break”. It’s not about if I’ll find my “big break” at all. The real question is, if I never lead worship again, would I still love Him? Would I still consider Him worthy of my praise? Yes. Whole-heartedly, yes. Forever and...
