Strong

I often feel like I have to "get it together" and feel strong and godly before I can worship the Lord and commune with Him. Sometimes I think...well I have't been very godly this week, and I'm feeling kind of weak...so how can I worship Him right now...But on my way to work this morning I listened to this amazing song by Kari Jobe and I was encouraged and reminded by the truth that He takes us right where we are. I don't have to have it all figured out and feel all of this godly strength before I can offer my requests and worship to the Lord.  In 2 Corinthians 12:9 Paul said "So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me." It's in those moments of weakness, when I come to the Lord, that I become strong. 

"I'll find you in the place I'm in, I'll find you when I'm at my end, I'll find you when there's nothing left of me to offer you except for brokenness. 
You lift me up, you'll never leave me thirsty,
When I am weak, when I am lost and searching,
I'll find you on my knees."

-Kari Jobe

Home Sweet Home

Three months ago, it was sad moving out...

But exciting to move in... 
Dr. A likes it here and Samson is smiling about it too...
And I can an truly say that our little house in Dayton, Ohio has really begun to feel like home. Here are a few pics of our home sweet home...













"...as for me and my house we will serve the Lord."
Joshua 24:15
