Totally

(Photo on one of my sunset walks in my neighborhood...)


I've heard it said that all cylinders of one's life can't run at once, especially in ministry.

Some say your family and the church can't run well at the same time.

Some say if your house is in order the church probably won't be, and vice versa.

If you're doing great financially, you will quite possibly deal with a healthy problem and vice versa.

In other words, people say there is no "perfect world" outside of heaven. But for once, just for once...even a day...I'd love for all the facets of my life to work together beautifully.

Right now the church is working beautifully. But every single thing in my life...no.

Sometimes I wish I could be pain free for just a day. I take things to heart so much that yes, I do feel pain many times. If I didn't love so much it wouldn't hurt so much.

Quiet me with your love right now Lord.

Just quiet me and let me hear your still small voice through the irritation.

Thank you for Zephaniah 3:17. I cling to it most days, on behalf of something. Many days it's a different thing than the previous day as my challenges are always trading off for another one.

Make them stop...even for a day?

Love you, my father... thank you for making me yours. I am totally free to be totally yours.
