Forgiven

He came that I might know
truth.
Have life.
Live love.
Overcome as He overcame
death.
He lives now
so that I can…
know how
to live today
and forever
I wish I could say I know all
but choose instead
to learn to know the One
who said:
 *“I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, 
even though they die;
 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. 
Do you believe this?”
so I die…
to my own selfish ambitions, 
and trust
that if I crucify
the me in I
Somehow I live and never die,
because He lives, so do I. 
simple, 
grand,
 a maddening plan,
I have my part 
I take His hand-
I choose
life
by grace through faith,
I believe
I am 
forgiven.
Amen.
*John 11:25-26
Ephesians 2:8 (grace through faith)

Here’s What I am Reading, Book Babes! (WOYN)



Here’s what I finished since last time:


Revealing Heaven by John W. Price-Reviewing Thursday, February 28th

Holey, Wholly, Holy by Kris Camealy- I appreciated Kris’s heart as revealed in this collection of readings she put together for the Lenten season. Raw, real and inspiring.

Finally Free by Kim Tabot – This just the right size study was a perfect start to the new year.
The readings spoke to the heart of my journey this year, challenging me to let go- releasing those things God has not meant for me to carry into my faith journey. I participated in the online 6 week study and found Kim makes some excellent points about true freedom in Christ. Practical.

Lifted by Angels by Joel Miller: Review for Miller’s book review Here.

31 Days of Praise by Ruth Myers: Myer’s book review Here.

The Curse of Tutankhamen by Elaine Landau (Mysteries of Science)- I read this because my Girl is studying ancient civilizations and we brought a stack of books home from the library- of which this was one I was blessed to explore and thoroughly creep-ed out by the stories surrounding the history surrounding the unearthing of this mummies tomb!

Here’s what I am currently actually reading:

Writing to God by Rachel G. Hackenberg- Journeying through this book for the next 40 days HERE.
 As someone who writes regularly in a journal and to God, I thought I would find the prompts limiting or that I would dread being prompted but I am thoroughly enjoying using Rachel’s prompts and am pleasantly surprised with the inspiration that comes new each morning!

Love Letters to God: Deeper Intimacy through Written Prayer by Lynn Morissey
This one has been on my shelf for many years, and I know I perused through at one time- but am reading now after my friend Kel @ Nourishment for the Soul posted a blurb about it! Straight from the heart and beautiful to gaze upon as well-will review this lovely book soon!

Praying for Your Prodigal Daughter: Hope, Help and Encouragement for Hurting Parents by Janet Thompson

Poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life with Words by Susan G. Wooldridge

The Explosive Child: A New Approach for Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children
