Psalm 141:5

5 Let a righteous mana strike me—it is a kindness;
let him rebuke me—it is oil on my head.
My head will not refuse it.


Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord;
keep watch over the door of my lips.

some days my heart aches still.

I get so frustrated that I sometimes forget that I have everything I could ever need in Jesus.

It seems that I'm learning a different aspect of the same thing each day. I am in no way complaining about this, but it just shows me how much I really don't know. In general - I just say that I'm learning to be satisfied fully by God. But each day, He's showing me another aspect of my life that I need to give to Him. I'm so grateful that He doesn't give me more than I can handle. Lately, it's also been easier taking it one day at a time. I think because God is teaching me how to only care about the now :p. I get all....discombobulated when I think ahead. It took more effort at first, but now it just seems natural to take one day at a time. I'm so grateful for so much. I'm still learning how to be by myself, but I'm grateful for it. I know that I'm exactly where God wants me. I know that He knew I was going to be here. And I love that He loves me.
When I get pretty bummed out (and by bummed I mean crying :p), I think about how God loves me and how His heart breaks when mine does....and although it doesn't necessarily dry up all the tears (actually it kinda makes me cry more - what a great love!) it's so comforting knowing that someone cares.
And, ok. I have a lot of people that care.
But there's someone whose thoughts about me are greater than the grains of sand.....
I consider that.
And I feel selfish.
How little have I thought of God - my one TRUE love in return?
Each day I need to dedicate myself to Him. (Personally - not that it applies to everyone)
It's a good habit for me to be reminded that no, this day isn't about me, it's about God living and working through me.

Wow this post is all over the place.
But so is my mind.

This is what happens when I play soccer - I don't get tired, my brain turns to hyper speed :)
Anyway, just the thoughts of someone trying to learn.

I got on my knees tonight and thanked God for laughter. you know, the kind that comes from pure and innocent fun with people you love and by whom you are loved.

1 I cried out to God for help;
I cried out to God to hear me.
2 When I was in distress, I sought the Lord;
at night I stretched out untiring hands
and my soul refused to be comforted.

3 I remembered you, O God, and I groaned;
I mused, and my spirit grew faint.
4 You kept my eyes from closing;
I was too troubled to speak.
5 I thought about the former days,
the years of long ago;
6 I remembered my songs in the night.
My heart mused and my spirit inquired:

7 “Will the Lord reject forever?
Will he never show his favor again?
8 Has his unfailing love vanished forever?
Has his promise failed for all time?
9 Has God forgotten to be merciful?
Has he in anger withheld his compassion?”

10 Then I thought, “To this I will appeal:
the years of the right hand of the Most High.”
11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12 I will meditate on all your works
and consider all your mighty deeds.

13 Your ways, O God, are holy.
What god is so great as our God?
14 You are the God who performs miracles;
you display your power among the peoples.
15 With your mighty arm you redeemed your people,
the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.

16 The waters saw you, O God,
the waters saw you and writhed;
the very depths were convulsed.
17 The clouds poured down water,
the skies resounded with thunder;
your arrows flashed back and forth.
18 Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind,
your lightning lit up the world;
the earth trembled and quaked.
19 Your path led through the sea,
your way through the mighty waters,
though your footprints were not seen.

20 You led your people like a flock
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
