psalm 78:72  And David shepherded them with integrity of heart

Shepherding: EZEQUIEL 34

Strengthen the weak.
Heal the sick
Bind up the injured
Bring back the strays
Search for the lost

The Joy of Salvation

This week.  Just feeling positive.  Hopeful.  Overwhelmed by opportunity to serve God by loving people.  I'm listening to a song right now that says "You hold my world in your hands.  I am amazed at the way that you love me.  My world is safe in your hands."

That's how I feel.  Priviliged.  Loved.  Undeserving.  Grateful that God pursues me in my junk.  Called upward.  To leave stuff behind that doesn't matter. 


In my salvation.


In my Savior.

Beach Bunny

It's not original.  It's not new or life altering or earth shaking. 

But it's SO FUN.

I'm a beach bunny.   Love the ocean.  Love beaches.  All of them.  No discrimination here, shorties! 

Some of my best memories are with my girl friends and our trips to the sand and surf.  Imma take you on a lil trip through a few of my favorite memories.  Ready? :)

Miami Beach:

White Sand.  Drinks under umbrellas.  Lazy days and salsa club nights.  OH YES.  

Nicaragua:  Leon

Rum and coke.  Sunsets that merge heaven and earth into glory.  Lazy days in beachside restaurants.  Tacos that will make your mouth sing arias. 

Virginia Beach:

The beach itself isn't that rad but I've been here twice with two of my dearest friends.  And those memories make it amazing.   And Oh Yes, we play chess on the beach.

Psalm 63:3

Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.

Taking Inventory

The first day of the new year.  Time to take internal temperatures.  Reflect on the past year.  Set goals for the new one. 

To be totally honest, I'm feeling a little discouraged today because of where I'm at financially.  Finances and money have been a struggle for me my whole adult life.  I'm just not good at budgeting or saving.  I'm the definition of the spender in life.  So, over the past 3 years in particular I've been trying hard to change my ways, and I've seen a little progress.  I guess I just wanted to be in a different place this year than I was last year.  It doesn't feel much like it.

So this isn't a goal.  It's a fact.  I am going to not talk about it.  Not make excuses for it.  I'm going to change.  At the end of 2013 I will no longer be a spender, I will be a saver.  A budget-er.  Actually at the beginning of 2013, because I repent of my lack of saving ways today.  I want integrity in all things, including my finances.

On a more positive note, I have seen God move in and through me and through my friends this year in ways that have been new and beautiful.  I feel His hand on us and a purpose for the future.  I'm excited to follow on.  I want to keep nothing back from God.  And hold nothing back that He gives me to share.

Jeremiah 42:4

“I have heard you,” replied Jeremiah the prophet. “I will certainly pray to the Lord your God as you have requested; I will tell you everything the Lord says and will keep nothing back from you.”
