[ seek intimacy with Jesus-
-the rest is overflow ]
I'm alive and God is good.
what a pleasure and delight it was to finally meet this lovely miss today :) I can’t wait to spend the next couple months getting to know her better!
we will be traveling together, leaving in TWO WEEKS, for our greatest adventure yet - Africa.
wow, Jesus is crazy faithful and good and just really rad.
who do you want to be?
I’ve realized lately I’ve been going in the opposite direction of who I want to be. my identity is in Christ, and I want that to be lived out in my character. I’ve been straying away from that, and I want to start the journey back.
I want to lived a full life on the edge, driven by the fear of God rather than the fear of man. honest & kind. loving forgiven and forgiving. free. trusting. faithful. friend.
I want to live out sacrificial love - giving everything I have and what I am, for the sake of the cross to the glory of Christ, compelled by love, for the benefit of others without expecting any sort of return or reciprocation except my heavenly reward.
tbh, this very much not how I’ve been lately, so I think I need to step back and refocus. (at Main Street-Downtown Vancouver)

second time getting to see them play, first time in over a year.
my favorite humans, these guys bring so much happiness to my life. I feel like the luckiest kid on earth to be able to know them.
they mean the world to me.
we were late tonite and missed their first song, then they only got to play 2 more. but they rocked it.
p.s. I’m pretty sure the applause was loudest for you. that may have been due to the gradual hearing loss, but all the same, you guys are the best. (at Hawthorne Theatre)

“let the songs i sing bring joy to You.
let the words i profess my love.
let the notes i choose be Your favorite tune;
and, Father, let my heart be after You.”
"come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. for My yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matt 11:v28-30
God has really been speaking to me about the importance of R E S T.
in the comments below you will find a long, rambling compilation of thoughts on rest that might not entirely make sense but is something I really needed to say.
