“The Lord has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He awakens me morning by morning, wakens my ears like one being taught.” ~Isaiah 50:4
We all face times when we need a little “pick me up” to sustain us on the road of life. This blog is a place where any person can come to find spiritual encouragement, strength and inspiration for the Christian journey. I like to think of it as a sort of spiritual gas station where you can come “refuel” and get filled up by God so you can keep moving forward in the plans He has for you. I love spending time in the Word, and then prayerfully relying on the Holy Spirit’s guidance to help me craft His words that will help others experience and love God in all His awesomeness…and to ENJOY a deep and abiding relationship with Him, even through life’s struggles. My goal is to communicate God’s many truths (and mysteries) in fresh, relevant and practical ways in hopes that they will light and ignite your soul to live a life worthy of your unique calling in Christ.
Often my posts are based on what God is teaching and speaking to me through the various seasons of life. Right now that entails being a wife, new mom, a student of Christian theology, a foreigner living in a foreign land, and most of all, a follower of Jesus in need of grace and seeking to be faithful in the day-to-day matters of life.
My prayer for this blog comes from Paul’s words in Colossians 2:2-3, that all who drop by wouldn’t leave without being “…encouraged in heart, and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
So get cozy and stay a while. Chew on the insights. Meditate on the Scriptures. Pray the prayers. Don’t leave until your spiritual gas tank is full!
