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.

Be the Christian without a tongue.

Speak God’s love through your actions and not through your words.

Sometimes God makes you wait for the things you want,

Not to test your patience, but because the end result’s value and worth is amplified with every minute you’re willing to sit tight in reverence to His will.

It’ll be hard. But I’m willing to wait.

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?

When I dedicated my heart to God, I figured He would give what I need to get by successfully, bless me with my necessities.


He examined my heart and mind, noted my most honest desires and fears and hopes, filled a resevoir-sized tank full of grace and favor, and plunged me into it, and drowned me in His goodness!

GAHH! Sorry if I sound crazy right now, guys! It’s just so amazing to feel my Dad’s love.

I’m all giddy tonight.

There’s something to be said about someone that can make you smile until your cheeks literally hurt. Or make you sing like there’s not a soul listening, when there most definitely are. Or when you are without words, completely in awe.

These people are blessings from God. Don’t under-appreciate the people He floats into your life.

They are the one’s that would never hurt you, because they know that Christ is their protecting armor. They will never forsake you, because they know they have been inherited into the family of the Almighty God. They can come into your life like a low creeping fog, but linger like the smell of rain in the warm summertime.

You can bear to them your weaknesses, and they will dedicate themselves to you, appreciating those weaknesses as medals of honor, as your triumph in the Name of God, through testimony.

If someone comes to mind when reading this, thank God, and rejoice in the love He has for you.
