My life as a kid of the King

Like the rain.

It is raining.  It feels so good, it smells so amazing. The ground is soaking it in, things are refreshed and they are growing.

It has me thinking. What is it about the rain and Jesus.

Why is it when ever I hear the sound of the rain – I listen for His voice?

Why is it when I feel the drops on my body – I feel for His touch?

Why is it when I smell the rain coming – I look for Him?

Sometimes I feel like I am searching for my love, the perfect piece of me, the one who holds my heart.

Its like the rain reminds me that He is always there, pouring His love over me.

Jesus is like the rain.

Rain Down

looks like tonight, the sky is heavy

Feels like the winds are gonna change

Beneath my feet, the earth is ready I know its time for heaven’s rain, it’s gonna rain
Cos its living water we desire to flood our hearts with holy fire
Rain down, all around the world we’re singing

Rain down can you here the earth is singing

Rain down all around your people singing

Rain down rain it down on me.
Back to the start, my heart is heavy Feels like its time, to dream again I hear Your voice,

and yes I’m ready To live the life to sing Your song, to sing Your song Yes I belong
[Chorus]
Give me strength to cross the water Keep my heart upon the altar Rain, rain it down on me. Give me faith to render heaven

James 5:18

Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.

Leviticus 26:4

Then I will give you your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit

Zechariah 10:1

Ask rain from the Lord in the season of the spring rain, from the Lord who makes the storm clouds, and he will give them showers of rain, to everyone the vegetation in the field.

Psalm 72:6

May he be like rain that falls on the mown grass, like showers that water the earth!

Ahhh Sunday Mornings.

Ahhhh….sweet sunday mornings.

I am a sunday school teacher (among other things!) and every two weeks I am blessed to sit in the regular service and hear what the Lord is telling our pastors! There is always so many good things to take – but this is the one that stuck with me from this past sunday:

 “I want you to get out there and walk—better yet, run!—on the road God called you to travel. I don’t want any of you sitting around on your hands. I don’t want anyone strolling off, down some path that goes nowhere. And mark that you do this with humility and discipline—not in fits and starts, but steadily, pouring yourselves out for each other in acts of love, alert at noticing differences and quick at mending fences.”

Ephesians 4 MSG

“you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called,  with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Ephesians 4 NKJV

To walk WORTHY of your calling! To be full of LOVE, GENTLENESS, FORGIVNESS, PEACE, HUMILITY.

What a calling that is in it self. If you don’t know the calling the Lord has on your life, or feel like you don’t know what road you should go down – start here, with this verse. Transform your life into one that has these attributes. It isn’t easy – but like most things that are of value, it is worth it.

So this is 30.

So I am now 30. WHAT? How did that creep up on me? I mean I KNEW it was coming, and although I am blonde, I know how birthdays works. BUT STILL – 30?!?! Really??

When you look back over your life at all the amazing things that you have learnt, done, and seen – it can be overwhelming!

When I look at the last 30 years of my life – I see a lifetime of blessings, of favor and of amazing adventures. I have been to awesome places, I have experienced amazing things, I have a life that I am so thankful for. I have a wonderful and loving (and gorgeous) husband, two sweet and incredible children, amazing and supportive friends and a Jesus who love me. I can only imagine what the next ten years will hold, and the many years after that! What more I will see, do, hear and learn. I know there is a plan for my life. I know that it is big, and I know that it is only beginning!

Optimist?

My good friend and I had a coffee date this morning. She lives a province away and I am so happy when she comes back home for a visit. Whenever we get together there is one common occurrence… we are usually both 10-15 minutes late!! Anyways – she had heard a very interesting theory about people who are chronically late (like us) “Optimistic people are commonly late because they truly believe that they will make it in time!” Or something to that nature! It made me laugh. I am always thinking I have enough time – even when I have 5 minutes to get somewhere that is 15 minutes away! Like somehow it will happen!

Happy Friday 🙂

Good word.

“If better is possible, then is good – good enough?”

Mind blown… just a bit.

This was said sunday morning during my awesome pastors message. It was said with a whole lot of other amazing things – but this is what stuck with me. It is so simple. And so true.

If we know that complete healing is possible – why do we settle for halfway.

If we know that financial freedom is possible – why do we justify debt.

If we know that an intense love is waiting to be poured on us – why do we sit content with what we have.

If we know we can have an intimate relationship with God – why do we not say hello.

There are so many things in life that we settle for. Why should good be good enough. Why sit under the rainbow when you know there is a big pot of gold waiting for you at the end. Why settle for a life of contentment and mediocrity when there is a life of abundance with our name on it.

Just a thought.

Friendship…

I am so incredibly blessed to have the amazing friendships that I do. They love me for who I am, not who they want me to be. They care about my feelings, and are there when I need them. They laugh with me (sometimes at me – but that’s ok because I am laughing too!). We share our lives, our fears and hopes. We pray for each other. We correct each other with kindness and grace – not condemning or double-sided comments. We trust.

I have a daughter, and as she grows I pray daily that she develops friendships like these. That she knows what a true friend is and she has the strength to cut ties with those that are not. Friends don’t make you feel badly about yourself. They don’t put you in compromising or unsafe situations. They don’t mock you for your faith or morals. They don’t tell your secrets to make themselves seem superior. I hear myself repeating the saying – if a friend makes you ___________ then they really are not a real friend – and it is true! We need to surround ourselves with people who act in the true nature of friendship. Because friends love you, build you up, support you, and defend you.

On a lighter note – I was googling friendship pics to put on here and came across this comic – It is pretty funny!
