Discipleship is a messy process.
You get heartbroken, stressed, hopeless, and have I mentioned heartbroken? I don’t mean to sound bitter and in no way am I discouraging you to get involved in discipleship. In fact, my goal in writing this post is to encourage you, my dear reader, to get up and get discipled (or if you’re already a disciple [disciple, noun. a committed intimate…
"I want Your best but what if Your best is brokenness
Would I be broken?
I want Your best but what if it’s less than what I ask
And what I’m hoping?
What if Your best is here in the waiting
Here in the going through the motions?
I’ll still be trusting all I am and all have
And nothing less to potter’s hands
I’m trying hard to keep from giving You advice
It’s like teaching Shakespeare how to write
Or Monet, the way to paint another scene”

A tiny kitten in deep thought
Plan a morning date. Wake up to the sun, go on a walk with God & see what majestic places He wants to show you. He is your prince after all, let Him treat you like a princess.
just another blog update from Wordpress after quite some time :3
the song of my heart…taken from the Song of Songs.
Desperately, helplessly, longingly, I cred; Quietly, patiently, lovingly, God replied. I pled and I wept for a clue to my fate…and the Master so gently said, “Wait.”
“Wait? You say wait?” my indignant reply. “Lord, I need answers, I need to know why! Is Your hand shortened? Or have You not heard? By faith I have asked, and I’m claiming Your word.
My future and all to which I relate hangs in the balance and You tell me to “Wait?” I’m needing a ‘yes’, a go-ahead sign. Or even a ‘no’, to which I’ll resign.
You promised, dear Lord, that if we believe, We need but to ask, and we shall receive. Lord, I’ve been asking, and this is my cry: I’m weary of asking! I need a reply.
Then quietly, softly, I learned of my fate as my Master replied again, “Wait.” So I slumped in my chair, defeated and taut, and grumbled to God, “So, I’m waiting…for what?”
He seemed then to kneel, and His eyes met with mine…and He tenderly said, “I could give you a sign. I could shake the heavens and darken the sun. I could raise the dead and cause mountains to run.
I could give all you seek and pleased you would be. You’d have what you want, but you wouldn’t know Me. You’d not know the depth of My love for each saint. You’d not know the Power that I give to the faint.
You’d not learn to see through the clouds of despair; you’d not learn to trust just by knowing I’m there. You’d not know the joy of resting in Me when darkness and silence are all you can see.
You’d never experience the fullness of love when the peace of My spirit descends like a dove. You would know that I give, and I save, for a start, but you’d not know the depth of the beat of My heart.
The glow of My comfort late into the night, the faith that I give when you walk without sight. The depth that’s beyond getting just what you ask from an infinite God who makes what you have last.
You’d never know should your pain quickly flee, what it means that My grace is sufficient for thee. Yes, your dearest dreams overnight would come true, but oh, the loss if I lost what I’m doing in you.
So, be silent, my child, and in time you will see that the greatest of gifts is to truly know Me. And though oft My answers seem terribly late, My most precious answer of all is still ‘WAIT’.”
