Oh Relentless Love

His grace chases after me. HOW restoring. How freeing. Hallelujah! You HAVE to download Relentless Love from the World Mandate 2011 album.

O relentless Love
Grace that chases me
O relentless Love
Morning faithfully brings mercy to me
Your sweet mercy

I am found in Your love
Never once been forsaken
You will come my Rescuer
And wash every fear away

All-atoning sacrifice
Your pursuit never-ending
You have paid the highest price
So you can have my all

I am Yours You are mine
You fought for me
Jesus with all my heart
I cry worthy
I cry worthy I cry worthy
I cry worthy I cry worthy

Yesterday I had the coolest experience. I decided to start praying for one student specifically in my class every day. It. Was. AWESOME. Then the whole day I had time to just shower the room with prayers for my students while they were testing. I don't know why I have never done this before. I get so caught up in the next person to help or teach that I forget the most important thing!! I felt the Lord's presence in my classroom yesterday. I'll feel it today too, I know it :) I challenge you to pray over wherever you are today. Whether it's in your college class, the kitchen, office or restaurant. It is SO empowering and SO amazing. He is faithful. I had so many more sweet moments yesterday than usual. 

Dear Jesus, 
Thank you for this awesome opportunity to teach and love your children. You are the ultimate and faithful lover. Oh my soul rejoices! You're my best friend.

I really love the winter. It's just comforting to me. It's socially acceptable to stay indoors and cuddle under fuzzy and knit blankets. Thanks Jesus for always cuddling me. Oh and thank you for always providing. You bring so much restoration.

Rouse yourself up and look to God. Build your hope on Him. No matter if there are a hundred and one things that press, resolutely exclude them all and look to Him. "Look unto Me," and salvation is, the moment you look.
-Oswald Chambers

Soon I'll be a runner...

Monday, January 2, 2012

One of my New Years Resolution this year is to become a runner. Some of you may know that I HATE RUNNING. Literally despise it. I have never run more than 2.5 miles....yes, that is merely the Beartrail, once. I can power walk like the dad in Malcolm in the Middle all day long, but running?! Here is what usually happens:

  1. I think I'm gonna go running.
  2. Here I the Beartrail...I can do this.
  3. Start running...oh no I'm going too fast...can't. breathe. suffocating. body. aching.
  4. Slow down...stop running...thank goodness...that was miserable.
BUT I WILL CHANGE!!! I'm gonna run the Bearathon. Yep, I'm gonna do it! I will cross "run a half marathon" off my bucket list!!! 

Today I ran almost 2 miles. I ran really really slowly. Poor Ben, he really should run ahead of me and leave me in the dust. He won't. And he won't let me stop either. The other day we ran a mile and I was DYING. I literally almost cried haha and he wouldn't let me stop!! I was whining like a baby: 
Me- "Ben PLEASE let me stop I can't BREATHE!!!" 
Ben- "No. You're going to finish this. You can do this!"
Me- "I CAN'T, I HATE YOU!!!" (I don't really hate him. I'm just dramatic.)
He made me sprint at the end too. Meany. I guess that means he's a good trainer though....

Anyways, if anyone else wants to run the Bearathon JOIN THE TRAIN!!! I'm really excited. I think I'm going to feel really accomplished :) Happy New Years! I can't wait to see all the things that this year holds.
