Where has the past month and half gone?

I have no idea. I guess times flies when you're having fun! Life is good and the Lord is great. I can't get that truth out of my mind right now. The Lord continues to draw me near to Him, and I continue to know and understand the truth of who He is in my life. He is the lover of my soul, my redeemer, and knows the depths of my heart and loves me the same. That's incredible.

Since my last post I've:
gotten a sweet tattoo of the greek word for hosanna on my wrist. check facebook for pics.
bought a sweet car. an '07 red Jetta named Sophia.
got a new roomie for this fall
I'm being discipled by this amazing gal from the Austin Stone

Things are great. I can't even really go into much more detail than that. The Lord is incredibly faithful to me. The more I seek Him, the more I find Him.

The Austin Stone community church feels the most like "home" on this earth. (This earth isn't my home though, you know this). The sermons continue to challenge me, and I continue to seek ways to serve this body. I yearn for great community in this body as well. I have a quote from this past week's sermon that has been on my heart all week. There's nothing flower-y in it, or even anything that would make me boast. It's just a quote on the truth of mourning over sin. Over my sin, that thankfully is covered by the grace of Christ. I was dead in my sin, but am alive because of Christ. Amen. I say yes, and Amen.

"The thing about Christianity is that you can never experience the fullness of the joy of your salvation until you really understand and comes to grips with your sin and the affects that sin has on your life. You'll never understand the heights of grace until you understand the depths of your depravity and the depths of sin. So mourning is extremely important for you to really experience the joy that God has for you. The more you see your own sin the more precious and amazing God's grace appears to you. And the more your aware of God's grace and acceptance of Christ the more your able to drop your denials and defenses and admit the true nature and character of your own sin. It's reciprocal, more grace, more brokenness, more brokenness, greater grace."- Ronnie Smith

Keep seeking the King wherever you are.

Peace.Love. Hope.

over and out.
