True to who you are- You saw my heart….

I’m not sure where this post finds you. You could be starting off a fabulous weekend with no worries in sight. You could be in the midst of a storm and not know when the help is going to show up. I just felt the need to encourage and remind someone- maybe you- that God sees you. He has not forgotten you. Your circumstances are no surprise to Him. Run to Him….lean on Him….put all your faith in Him. It will be ok. It is going to work out in His time. I know that is sometimes easier said than done, but He does see your heart. He knows your struggles and knows if you are truly trying to give Him complete control. Isaiah 49:16 reminds us that He has our name written on the palm of His hand. Rest in the fact that He sees you and knows right where you are. You are never forgotten.

I read this quote from Malcolm Smith today and it stirred my heart-

“Now, in this moment, you are the focus of the passionate and unconditional love of God. He loves you with His entire Being. You have all of His love as if you were the only human in existence. And He loves you because you exist without reference to yourr behavior.Understand and live in that reality, and behaviour will change in response to such infinite love that leaves us worshipping in wonder. As John says, ‘We love, because He first loved us'(1 John 4:19)”

Lately, I have also found this song to be quite encouraging…

“Spent today in a conversation
In the mirror face to face with
somebody less than perfect
I wouldn’t choose me first if
I was looking for a champion
In fact I’d understand if
You picked everyone before me
But that’s just not my story
True to who You are
You saw my heart
and made
Something out of nothing
I don’t need my name in lights
I’m famous in my Father’s eyes
Make no mistake
He knows my name
I’m not living for applause
I’m already so adored
It’s all His stage
He knows my name oh, oh,
He knows my name oh, oh
I’m not meant to just stay quiet
I’m meant to be a lion
I’ll roar beyond a song
With every moment that I’ve got
True to who You are
You saw my heart
and made
Something out of nothing
He calls me chosen, free forgiven, wanted, child of the King,
His forever, held in treasure…
I am loved”
– Francesca Battistelli

Hello to anyone taking time form their busy lives to read my blog. I am a wife to an amazing man, who I am blessed to serve alongside in youth ministry. I am mommy to two amazing kids who I am privileged to be able to homeschool. This blog is out of my comfort zone and certainly me trying to be obedient to Christ. I love Him more than I care about my own comfort or awkwardness. Hopefully, this blog is honest, real, and transparent. I'm not a big fan of fake. The Lord is using it to bring growth to me...and I pray that in the process something about my crazy beautiful life might also encourage others.
