Sometimes the Lord speaks to you at the most random times, in the most random ways.

It's been kind-of a long week, physically, emotionally...and I was tired, tired, tired. But, school got out a little early today, and after a short coffee date with a friend, I decided I'd still haul my butt to the gym.

As I was on the last mile of my usual run, with my ipod set to random, a song came on, one that I knew God had sent, at that moment, for me.

The song is called "Change" by Bethany Dillon.

"My pockets are empty
Fear's such a thief
You know how that goes
I used to think
You couldn't love a mess like me
Then You came in so close

As my heart settles
You do the impossible

You change me, You change me
Thank You, Jesus
I can see You change me

Like a bullet in a wound
It needs to be removed
But only by You, only by You
And though I feel so stuck
The hope in Your eyes is enough

To change me, You change me
Thank You, Jesus
I can see You change me"

Thank you Jesus...for never giving up, for giving me hope, and for never tiring in the endless process of changing me.
My heart is Yours.

Psalms 37

It had been a tough morning.
It was a tough morning because it had been a tough night.
No, no car accidents or anything, just internally tough. Fighting for joy; for contentment.

As I sat in my car this morning before church, I flipped through my Bible to read a little before going in. I landed in Psalms 37. This is what I read:
"Trust in the Lord and do good...
Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will act..."

And then...

"Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him".

There was my answer, my action plan to fight the giant of fear in my life.
Trust the Lord, delight in Him, commit to Him, and then be still before Him.

Trust. Delight. Commit. Be still and Wait.

Oh if I could only get it right...

Daley and Starbucks took this while I was enjoying my black-iced-tea-two-splendas this morning.

He might be my most-talented friend...and one I enjoy spending time with and learning from.

Happy New Year 2008

Hope you rang the new year in with as much fun and good friends as I did.

I started off the new year with a run up Mt. Roubidoux...wind and all. And it was on top of that mountain where God and I had a good conversation, and I made some resolutions.

Time to go live them out...

To my family and friends, I love you; Happy New Year.
