Do not be afraid of broken things because Christ is redeeming everything. Ann Voskamp

Psalm 37:5 ~ Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this; He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

...what sticks out to me today is "your cause"

~ the why of things

~ the why of my book

"worthy" from LM Montgomery comes to mind

I think it is hard for me to begin because I want it to be perfect.

shine like the dawn ~ yes!

Beauty for my Soul

In the Mess of Life

...perhaps some dreams are not meant to come true and some at a later date...

What brings me peace is that even if I produce nothing for the world ~ I can be a light in my own little world

doing and being who He wants me to be.

I don't want to see the mess - I want to see the beauty (in the mess).

Psalm 43:3

send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me

The truth sets me free; a perfect home does not make me happy.

I choose to accept moments and look for moments of contentment and joy.

"Continue on. Dear One."

Choose Joy and Peace.

"just do the thing I've actually created you to do." love, God

There is so much that needs doing. But my Soul needs some time, some quiet, some Nature, some Country - then I will be better equipped for what needs doing.

I'm really hoping to make space for nothing.

I'm not sure that all I have planned is going to heal my broken heart.

Thank you, Lord, for time.

Today, I had nothing I really needed to do and I could use a few more days like that.

God has really spoken to me; LOUDLY, PROFOUNDLY  and LOVINGLY (through journal writing and quiet time)

Love is

HUMBLE

God, help me to be patient with my dreams knowing ALL is as it should be...
