Story: Not A Fairy Tale

Some of my journals…

I have been trying to figure out my story for some time. I think at some point I just stopped. Instead of trying to figure it out, understand it, analyze it, see myself in it, I just let it all go. I embraced the story that is my life. 
Sounds weird, right? Let it go and embraced it. But that is kind of what I did…little by little I accepted His broader perspective for my tiny glimpses. In time my story began to merge with His story. My story becomes His glory when I accept His grace. Oh, I am still accepting it. Still learning it. Still seeking where I am clinging to stories He wants me to release. But His peace permeates my story. His story has become my glory!

What Else Matters? (RJD #15)

Recent journal page!


The above came from a recent journal…so recent I won’t even share EXACTLY when! But this week, I am sharing a little scribble from a recently shared journal (shown below). It is what I need to remember tonight…
perhaps you do too?

What Else Matters?

Time to pray
Time to write
Time to serve
Time to praise His name
Time to share His glory and Truth
Time to stand in awe
at the work He’s done
Time to glorify His One and Only Son
If we have done the things He has called us to today, 
I guess we can put our head on our pillows and rest.
Tomorrow is a new day, 
His mercies will be fresh.
We can rest knowing there is grace.
What else matters?
