unsure how to word my reasons for sharing my thoughts with the world, i came across a statement by sarah markley that captured my why.
“it will matter, i believe, how we let him infuse our days with himself and how we allow ourselves to be taught by the little, beautiful things in life. and i think it will matter, at the end, how we choose to live with jesus every day.”
for most of my life, i’ve experienced god everywhere.
from the feeling of solidarity and belonging that comes when i close my eyes and sing to him in a crowd, to the invaluable small and trivial details surrounding me that seems to flash neon signs pointing my heart to:
his opinion of me,
how he moves in my life revealing a love and caring for the details that i am still amazed by.
and i feel compelled to share. to say look!
look at this god who loves me even when i beat my fists against him in hurt and anger…
look at this god who reminds me of my purpose and value when i am deflated and doubtful…
look at this god who takes my brokenness and in perfect timing and unexpected ways, heals me…
look! he’s your god too!
that’s what i feel compelled to say. that’s why i push past the what will they think of me, did i use the right words, am i foolish to think this will matter to anyone thoughts and i write what god pushpins on my heart.
i would love for you to stop by often. i am hoping you will have that moment when god shines a light on himself and how he loves you and sees you—even what he’s doing in you…through somebody’s words.
