Nineteen and a half….

Standard

Today is my half birthday!  I know, not a super momentous occasion, but a fun excuse to get a bit excited!

Sarah, Jenny, and I going out for a little date for a celebration....

In 3 weeks— I am moving to Missouri!  The times is coming up so fast!  It’s crazy.  This summer has had its struggles, and some days have seemed to drag on, but mostly- it has gone by very fast!  I can’t believe it’s almost over!

My brother David recommended that I listen to Hillsong United Live’s new album called “Beautiful Exchange”, and let me pass that recommendation along to you!  It is so good, the songs have all been super encouraging and challenging to listen to!  Hillsong is pretty much my favorite group to listen to.

   “…..I see Your fame in all of the earth, and I seek to know the ways of your heart!”     ~Hillsong “Open my Eyes”

My two favorite songs would be “Open my Eyes” and “Our God is Love”.

The lyrics for the song “Forever Reign” are amazing:

You are good, You are good
When there’s nothing good in me
You are love, You are love
On display for all to see
You are light, You are light
When the darkness closes in
You are hope, You are hope
You have covered all my sin

You are peace, You are peace
When my fear is crippling
You are true, You are true
Even in my wandering
You are joy, You are joy
You’re the reason that I sing
You are life, You are life,
In You death has lost its sting

Oh, I’m running to Your arms,
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

You are more, You are more
Than my words will ever say
You are Lord, You are Lord
All creation will proclaim
You are here, You are here
In Your presence I’m made whole
You are God, You are God
Of all else I’m letting go

Oh, I’m running to Your arms
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

My heart will sing
no other Name
Jesus, Jesus

Oh, I’m running to Your arms
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

God is everything.  He is strength for every situation.  He is hope, and peace, and truth, and on and on!  This is something that has been huge for me this summer, because I feel as if in some ways, I have been slapped in the face again with my NEED of Him!  I have been going into situations and circumstances relying on myself and obviously have been failing- being once again reminded that I need His grace and I am to be completely dependent upon Him! God was so faithful to teach me during Bible School these truths, and being home for the summer- working in the real world, living away from the environment of Bible classes and constant encouragement and accountability, has shed more light on these truths as I can actually put experiences with some of  them.  So, I know that in each new season, I will be learning new things and growing closer to our God and Savior.

I hope that the weekend is going well for all of you!  Sorry for the long post, but thank you for reading it!

Realizing His Sufficiency,

Amy!
