Currently {Jan.}

+Reading... Fearless by Max Lucado, Savor daily devotional by Shauna Niequist, & Job/Psalms in the Bible.  I'm still working on my Bible reading plan that I started last summer & I'm more than half way through!

+Working... as a temporary librarian at a school for the month of January.  It's "inner-city," & some moments are a real challenge, but I'm leaning into Jesus & that's the best place to be.  Josh Wilson's Pushing Back the Dark is my anthem for these days.

+Missing... someone very special.  The miles in-between seem so far.

+Cleaning... out tons of stuff I really, really don't need!  It's time to live with less; I'm bogged down by all this stuff I never use.  I think I could have been a millionaire if I had just saved my $ & not gone shopping.  Yep.

+Excited... about 2016 & all that it mysteriously unfolds daily.

+Praying... for God's continued miracles & peace for the hurting & sick loved ones in my life.

+Praising... our awesome God that Pastor Saeed Abedini is now released from prison!!!  Plus, so many blessings in my life currently!

+Fighting... fear.  It's a daily battle, but in Him is my victory.

+Wearing... whatever is warm & cozy & layered.  It's freezing here!


P.S.: What are you up to lately?


  1. Oh man '+Fighting... fear. It's a daily battle, but in Him is my victory.' this sentence is such a summary for me right now...

    1. Praying for you in this, Lizelle. You might want to try "Fearless" by Max Lucado, which is the book I'm reading currently. It's been helping me dig into fear scriptures & honestly talk about my fear to God in prayer. He is, indeed, our victory! Keep fighting the good fight, sister!

  2. "Fearless" is really good! I attended a book study on that book years ago. I am glad you are getting rid of stuff you don't need. It is a very freeing thing!

    And wow, I hope the rest of the month goes well as a librarian and that God opens up opportunities for you to show His love to the kids that desperately need love.
