I woke up today with a very heavy heart...
I don’t want an explosive faith. I don’t want a faith that bursts in an intense, ear-piercing boom with sparks flying all around. I don’t want a faith that explodes but then gets put out, stomped into nothing but ashes. I want a faith like a steady, burning fire. I want faith that has flames […]… Continue reading A Thought: Faith Like A Fire — mysweetjesus
"I will however, mention something that I realized and that was a big deal to why I am running..."
And ask yourself, and ask God - for 2017 - What will God do in me and through me in 2017?
It’s called a narrow road for a reason.
It’s rough. And tough.
The ground is uneven, it’s dirt-paved, and there’s a few spikey plants.
I think that sometimes we get the idea that following Jesus is going to be easy.
That it’s going to be glorious and joy-filled and romantic.

Every single part of you. Even down to the deepest cracks in your heart.
You are loved.
You are prayed for. You are sung over.
You are prized.
So, my friend, let’s talk.
Let’s talk about sin.
It’s a three letter word that I don’t like hearing, but don’t hear enough.
Sometimes, I hate living in America because our culture has normalized and embraced and even praised sin.
Having sex with strangers. Getting drunk. Cheating the system. Stealing. Rebelling against parents. Using the name of “Jesus Christ” as a cuss word. Habitually watching porn. Cheating in relationships.
And sometimes I hate how…

Sisters, I have to address something that is tugging on and breaking my heart...
Friends that touched my heart and my life in different ways all joined together these past two weeks to give me the most loving send-off ever.
March 20th was when I knew that I would be moving to California with the plant. I didn’t know when exactly that would be or how that would happen - but...
End of summer and beginning of fall. Where there’s an end, there’s always a sweet beginning
