My adoration rests in my SAVIOR. I'm a former missionary and current coffee snob, living on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This blog is my blog for ministry, and little parts of my life you may find fun, inspiring, or crazy. - Kristin, 21.
There are two things I will absolutely never grow tired of.

Coffee and Christ.

Life is as it should be.

Our Father’s House has a welcome mat.

It is carved with valleys. It covers vast oceans. It is freckled with forests and stained with painted canyons. It reached further than the eye can see and occupies every which corner and crevice of this Earth we inhabit.
You are standing on that welcome mat. At this very moment you reside at the threshold of the Kingdom if the Most High, and our Father is saying with favor and love, “Welcome home, my dear child.”

"   Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.   "
Francis Chan, Crazy Love
There have been feelings on my heart lately that been troubling to me.

They’ve been doing a good job at making me feel less than acceptable as a person, and downright insignificant.
Today, I was driving in my car, completely upset and crushed, when this sentence came out of nowhere and placed itself in my head:
“I cherish you, My precious daughter; even when you feel like no one else does.”
Every day, I struggle. But in my times of self-upsetting feelings and negativity, I will remember that my significance is in Him.
And because of that, I am worth more than gold. He loves me so much.

I hope that one day I can have the honor, blessing, and privilege to say that I acted as an instrument of God to bring others to Jesus Christ.

Forget fame. Forget money. Forget all of that.

It’s garbage. It’s rust. It’s disposable.

Let me be a tool for the Lord’s glory and an earth-defined nobody. Then I will be a Father-defined somebody.

Christ-following bloggers should be concerned by the message they extend to those who visit their blogs. Not by the number of likes, reblogs, and followers.

I mean, heck. Jesus had 12 followers, and He turned out alright!

"He must ^ and I must v"

In the balance of Savior versus self, remember Who should be Sovereign.

Can I pray for anyone tonight?

Reply or inbox me any prayer requests and I would be more than happy to pray for you! :)

So may I pray for you?

My beautiful Father, I long for nothing but to delight in Your Name!

Let my heart be so full of satisfaction in You, that if I were ripped from my house, my friends, my comforts, that I would do nothing but praise You for allowing me to retain the knowledge and faith in Your Holy ways!

I will follow at your feet like a child- YOUR child! 

Your love and sacrifice is my bread, my water, my shelter, my oxygen!

I need nothing else, but You!

I think that when God is about to have something really big in your life happen, He sometimes blesses you with just a taste of it. And when you receive that small sip, you know immediately Who it is that has given it to you. And you want more!

Then when He sees you pining for more, He says, “Just allow me the privilege of giving it to you.”

Then, you just trust in Him to deliver.

That’s amazing. We have the most generous, loving God, Who WANTS to allow us these splendid things! We need only be still, and know that He is Lord.

Until the breaths inside me cease,

I live to see Your Name increase.
