i...

I...

tear down walls, one brick at a time.

wipe tears.

create a safe place.

pray for protection of angels.

cry out to Jesus.

bind up hearts.

bandage up boo boos.

love fiercely.

protect honestly.

nourish bodies and souls.

encourage.

create.

dream.

fight.

speak truth and life.

offer advice.

try not to hide.

but I also fail.  and I'm not perfect.  and I don't want to ever pretend to be.  it is of no value to anyone around me if I can't own my shortcomings and point to Jesus even through those.  all of the list above is only by His grace and His power.  On my own, I am still just a kid who is trying to figure things out.  in His power there is hope and redemption and grace and justice and forgiveness and healing.

how great is it that I am nothing on my own.  oh what He can do with this lump of clay.  mold me and make me God, continue to create and refine me.  give me wisdom for when everything hurts and I don't know how to put people myself back together.  I will seek and find rest in You.

    Well, I'm glad to see you posted, at least. I do typically like to read a little more about your life, but I'll take what I can get ;)

    1. I updated it with something a bit more meaningful. But at least I was honest, I created posts that would go live with or without me! :)

      I like it. Definitely honest. My constant struggle: "I will seek and find rest in You."
