I look up to the mountains—does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night....
refreshing waters falling on our weary souls we are not parched now

Who but God goes up to heaven and comes back down? Who holds the wind in his fists? Who wraps up the ocean in his cloak? Who has created the whole wide world? What is his name—and his son’s name? Tell me if you know! Proverbs 30:4
your Spirit will be poured out covering us like honey with such thickness and sweetness that we cannot help but grab handfuls to hand to our neighbors we will scrape your Glory from the carcass of a lion much like samson did—we’ll go onward, holding Love’s hand to share the goodness that is around us singing “out of the one who eats came something to eat; out of the strong...
Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Colossians 3:16
Oh, that you would burst from the heavens and come down! How the mountains would quake in your presence! As fire causes wood to burn and water to boil, your coming would make the nations tremble. Then your enemies would learn the reason for your fame! When you came long ago, you did awesome deeds beyond our highest expectations. And oh, how the mountains quaked! For since the world began, no ear...
“Give the Lord no rest until he completes his work…” Isaiah 62:7
Do not bear needless burdens. They will only press upon your spirit and interfere with My movings. Much remains to be accomplished. Linger not over what appears to be an unfinished case. Pass on. My Spirit will continue to strive though you give no further thought. In this way your mind shall be kept free and your path open, and it shall always be a new way. Keep moving always, and from life to...
The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked. Proverbs 24:16
I’m waking up my sleepy body, expecting a morning of coffee and encountering Christ. His love drenches my soul constantly and I stand in awe—still and quiet—at what He has done. He brings my joy, He sets me to new songs, He shows me His care over and over again. My Lord never misses a time to ravish my heart; it is me who must stay attentive and wide eyed, opening my mouth so...
At the bar of common sense Jesus Christ’s statements may seem mad; but bring them to the bar of faith, and you begin to find with awestruck spirit that they are words of God. -Oswald Chambers

Break and Burn
iamthedesperate: Pry me open, split me and look deep inside. If you don’t see your very reflection, break and burn me. I want to be ashes if it means you remake me, for You only create beautiful. -Adrian Gibbs for Isaiah 61 one of the most beautiful things i’ve ever read.
For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God. As the Scriptures say, People are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades. But the word of the Lord remains forever.” And that word is the Good News that was preached to you. 1...

But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit. Romans 7:6
stardust and honey caught in my lungs from breathing you in, in ocean-sized gulps to fill this fragile body and spirit up, to the brims and the edges make me a forest where you can set fire, with majesty inside the oaks and glory in the sun
We think rightly or wrongly about prayer according to the conception we have in our minds of prayer. If we think of prayer as the breath in our lungs and the blood from our hearts, we think rightly. The blood flows ceaselessly, and breathing continues ceaselessly; we are not conscious of it, but it is always going on. We are not always conscious of Jesus keeping us in perfect joint with God, but...
I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die. Galatians 2:21

i’m really thankful for simple nights that make a way into your heart. nights like this, sitting around alone, allowing the Spirit to be with me in my art, listening to lyrics that have been formed from the outpour of His love, and being comfortable on my bed. it’s beautiful, in the simplest ways. i cannot wait to sit comfortably with Christ, face to face, nothing between us. nothing...
