Thoughts on a Tuesday Evening...

I'm so amazed sometimes at how fast things change.

One year ago I didn't even know where God was leading my life... now I'm going to Sterling and majoring in something that I feel called to do - even though it wasn't at all "my plan". I stand in complete awe at the way that He leads and guides me.

So far, this year has been one of great rejoicing for me. I have tasted beautiful authentic freedom. I have had the opportunity to minister in many different avenues - youth, peers, as well as adults. God has been working on my heart and transforming my mind. No WAY am I perfect. But HE is at work in me... and that alone calls for great rejoicing.

Today I was reminded of God's incredible love for me. As I walked from class to class this morning, the sun on my face enveloped me in warmth. It's funny that I can feel so loved by my Maker simply by walking in His creation, but it's true. Joy fills my heart... especially on beautiful days that are warmer than 40 degrees... :)

Do you know this love? Do you know this joy? It can't be matched anywhere by anyone. Only Christ fills like this... and what He brings is lasting.


  1. Amazing love; is how I can describe His grace...

  2. Hey Emily,

    That was a blessed post. It is great how God is there even when things seem to be falling to pieces! It must be terrible for those that do not know the grace that we do, to go through a hard time.

    Thank you again for your post!

    In Christ,

  3. I’ve been following and enjoying your blog for a while now and would like to invite you to visit and perhaps follow me back. Sorry I took so long for the invitation.

  4. Hey Em,

    I just stumbled upon my blog, and made my way to your's. The sentiments in your post have proven true in my own life time and time again over the past few years. When I graduated Highschool, my mother told me that my life would completely change every six months. That has been one of the best pieces of advise I have gotten, and it has proven true every six months, and many times, it is in a direction that I had no inclination of going. Makes me think of the verse, Prov 16:9 "The heart of man plans his way; but the Lord establishes his steps".
