Coffee and Christ.
Life is as it should be.
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. "
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.
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.
If things for you right now are messed up, if nothing is going your way, if those you love betrayed you, if those you who hurt you are dragging your feet on your walk with God, if times of trouble have you with anchors tied at your ankles, if you feel ashamed, disgraced, forgotten, unloved, forsaken; hear this now- Rescue is coming.

I mean, heck. Jesus had 12 followers, and He turned out alright!
In the balance of Savior versus self, remember Who should be Sovereign.

Anyone who read my question from Tuesday about sex, this is an amazing message.
“The Truth About Sex and Your Soul”: part of the Money, Sex, and Power series from Neighborhood Church of Castro Valley.
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!
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.
I live to see Your Name increase.
