Today I leave for Cambodia.
Get into the habit of dealing with God about everything. Unless you learn to open the door of your life completely and let God in from your first waking moment of each new day, you will be working on the wrong level throughout the day. But if you will swing the door of your life fully open and ‘pray to your Father who is in the secret place,’ every public thing in your life will be marked with the lasting imprint of the presence of God.
Please hear me, Girl: The world has enough women who know how to do their hair. It needs women who know how to do hard and holy things.
Jesus, you are incredible.
Remind me gently, Oh Lord, what it means to have a heart that breaks like Yours; but if it cannot be gentle, I beg that You walk with me in the pain of Your answer, so that I may know not only Your goodness, but also Your face.
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
God is shaping us, even in our doubts.
That’s what God does though, He takes us to the brink until we are shattered, then He picks us up and rebuilds us. It is a sweet breaking, one that leaves us more dependent than ever, but more loved and cherished than we thought.
I am learning to praise God, even when He is silent; what a blessing it is.
