A post I read, called Just Imagine. Head over and allow yourself to be immersed in what it's gonna be like in Heaven.  My head practically started spinning. I just want to close my eyes and, yes, imagine. But I'ma write this post first. 


You know those moments when you just feel empty? Tired? Exhausted? I was having one of those, today. Lunch just dragged on and I'm just sitting down, wishing for tomorrow. 


Tomorrow? My mind jerked to attention. 


"God? I don't want to lose this day. Come and save me. Please."


"When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I'll listen. When you come looking for me, you'll find me. Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I'll make sure you won't be disappointed... I'll turn things around for you." 


These words from Jeremiah 29:12-13 recited themselves over in my mind. 


He'll never give up, you know that? When you're having a bad day and you want to give up, you know what? You don't have to. Close your eyes; lie down for five minutes. Allow Jesus to restore your soul.


Because He will. He did. He does.


Man. You know what? We're free. Yet I live as if I'm not. Jesus freed me; I'm free!

Nothing is holding me. Those chains are gone, I've been set free.

amazing grace, chris tomlin


do you know what this means? i think it means that i get to live. really live. like, i get to love with every word i speak, every step i take.

i yell too much. i'm not kind enough to my family. but i'ma call to Jesus.

it's all gonna be okay.
