You want my love, my love, my love. Always turning back to you ’til you never let me down.

Hi hey hello,

I hope your week has been going well! Last night I went to The Living Room, the first time they were at Calvary. It was so amazing. I love spending time sitting, singing praises to God, seeking His will for a short time. Life gets so busy that sometimes the most important things get pushed aside. I lose sight of things, the ones that are the most important often times. I lose sight of the big goal in life, to glorify God.

I often get so wrapped up in homework, school, family, life, that I forget that my main goal in life should be to do what God is calling me to do, glorify Him and do His work. Sometimes it’s a good refresher to spend some time seeking God solely, without the distractions of life.

What do you lose sight of? What’s a refresher for you?

Where You go, I’ll go. Where You stay, I’ll stay. When You move, I’ll move. I will follow. Who You love, I’ll love. How You serve, I’ll serve. If this life I lose, I will follow You.

Hi hey hello,

I hope you all had a fantastic Labor Day! My weekend was pretty good, other than a few kinks, the beach was nice and relaxing. I got to go to youth again, which was fantastic. I love getting to see the kids and hearing Josh teach. It always just such an amazing time. I also got to watch the SEASON PREMIERE OF DOCTOR WHO! I promise, no spoilers (read that in River’s voice didn’t ya?), but it was fantastic. I loved it, it sorta kinda completely blew my mind. I didn’t really see that coming at all. The majority of the episode was crazy.

I have lots and lots of pictures from the beach, but I haven’t exactly had time to get that taken care of, so those will hopefully, at the very least, be up on my flickr this week, though they should be on the blog here too!

Anyway, I wanted to write about something Josh talked about on Sunday. He talked about how the Gospel is the same 200 years ago and today. God’s love and His mercy is the same for us and for our great great great grandparents. I just thought that was the coolest thing EVER. I mean, I knew that, but it is always nice to get a refresher.

What are some things your have to remind yourself of frequently?

PS. Happy September!

Come be the fire inside of me. Come be the flame upon my heart.

Hi hey hello,

So after Saturday’s craziness, with all the running and nonstop fun I had, Sunday was a good day to rest, except for the fact that I did not do a whole lot of resting in the afternoon. My dad and I went Christmas shopping for my mom all afternoon on Sunday. Walking around the mall, 4 different stores, and not stopping for Starbucks until AFTER all of this, was a major energy drainer, but it was enjoyable. I love spending quality time with my dad. Daddy’s girl all the way!

As I was completing an assignment for my Bible class at school, which just happened to be a Bible study, I was reminded of the simple nature of the Gospel. Here is a quick refresher. We all sin, we mess up, we say bad things, think bad thoughts, to bad actions. God, in His infinite, indescribable, unattainable love, sent His Son, His perfect, holy Son to die for us lowly humans. He died a humiliating death, on a cross. Was buried, but rose again three days later and now he is sitting in Heaven, interceding on our behalf, simply because He loves us THAT MUCH!

The Gospel is simply amazing. Sometimes we get so caught up in theological debates and doctrine that we forget the simplicity of the Gospel, yet in it’s simplicity, it is magnificent. Who knows were we would be without it, we would be hopeless. At times, we all need to just stop and think about the Gospel, meditate on it.

What are things you remind yourself of? What are your thoughts on the Gospel?
