Discovering what love is one day at a time
The only thing that truly stands in the way of our relationship with God…is us. We have the ability to refuse His love in such a way that we do not let Him in.
I find the definition of the word let interesting. Merriam Webster’s Dictionary points to the origin of let to be Middle English letten, from Old English lettan to delay, hinder; akin to Old High German lezzen to delay hurt, Old English lǣt late. As a noun it means something that impedes or an obstruction. As a transitive verb, let means to cause to, or to make.
I fix my eyes upon You LORD God, and consider everything a loss,
That I may gain Christ
In order for your Word to be found by my mouth, reached for by my heart,
And heard and heeded by my ears
I do not consider myself to know anything, or desire anything but knowing You;
That I may not sin against you or fall into a pattern of unbelief,
Humiliate me, that I will be hidden in the day of Your anger.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. We have two young men ages 19 and 13.. This blog is somewhat of a journal and attempt for me to keep a purposeful perspective on life as a whole.
