My story…and, if you are in Christ, your story as well.
Different places and circumstances and yet…
Laughter and tears.
Embraced and pushed away.
Rebellion followed by repentance.
Restoration and rest.
Falling down and getting up.
Hurt but not defeated.
Crushed but not destroyed.
Losing sight and resetting my gaze.
No longer I but Christ in me.
Delight and desiring more of Him.
The Father’s justice, mercy, and love.
The Son’s sacrifice for my salvation, now interceding for me.
The Holy Spirit convicting and enabling me to see through the lens of redemption.
I am forgiven.
I am held.
I am His.
My story because of His story.
A tree planted by streams of living water; He has watered, He waters still.
A heart after the God who allows me to run in freedom as I learn to walk in the delight of His commands.
Weeping is not gone this side of eternity, but joy comes in the morning…always!
A lifetime of gladness and sorrow, always filtered through the hands of the God who has drawn me to Himself and who renews and establishes me in times of both.
His Word is my authority and my sure hope.
His presence is my pleasure!
Oh, that I would know Him more in Spirit and in Truth and that my story may more faithfully reflect His story!

Beautiful and meaningful message. Hope you and your family are safe in light of the flooding.
Thank you – it was near but not in our specific area. Thankful it didn’t get worse for friends and others it did affect.
