Jesus calling can rock your face everyday. If you don't have it...please invest!

love this:

Let the goal of this day be to bring EVERY thought captive to Me. Whenever your mind wanders, lasso those thoughts and bring them into My Presence. In My radiant Light, anxious thoughts shrink and shrivel away. Judgmental thoughts are unmasked as you bask in My unconditional Love. Confused ideas are untangled while you rest in the simplicity of My Peace.

"He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is STEADFAST, trusting in the Lord"
-Psalm 112:7

I feel like the Lord has really been working in my heart on taking EVERY SINGLE thought captive, not just a few here and there but each one. Since Jesus already knows my heart and thoughts i need to take them straight to Him.

the beginning

oh sweet friends...i am so excited to finally be able to (officially!) begin this blog and even greater, to begin this journey that the Lord has called me on. it's hard for me to even find the words to say because my emotions are all over the place, but the joy and excitement are greater than all the others! for those of you who don't know, i will be moving overseas in a few weeks and will be there for 3 months. a lot of you who are reading this, know more details (like where i will be and what i'll be doing :) but i am not sure how much i can say at this point (b/c of safety), but i would love to share personally. i can't wait to see what these next three months hold, i know it will be a time of experiencing a brand new culture, a sweet sweet family i can't wait to work alongside, interesting foods, a sweet time of really getting to know my savior and depending ONLY on Him, precious people that i already feel blessed to be given the opportunity to love on, scary at times...but above all i know the one who has ordained this trip, and it is in His perfect timing that all these things have come together. i ask that you would already begin walking along side me in prayer and i am so happy to be able to share this with you..
