the simple things :)

It's amazing how God uses the simple things in our everyday lives to speak to us, to remind us to seek Him, and to praise Him for what He has done.  The other day, God used something i would have never expected to remind me of His faithfulness in my life. 

The simple things, the daily things that we so often condsider apart of our every day lives can jump out from time to time- why?  Because God likes to shake things up...He likes to shake us up, and i wouldn't trade that for the world!  I desire to be in love with my Lord, my creator.

I am excited about this semester- as i was driving home yesterday, praying in my car- I just felt this overwhelming sense of peace and joy.  I am so excited to see what God does through Anthony and I- together, working as a team, but also working individually.

Dear God,

Thank you for your faithfulness in my life, in my marriage, in my family and in my friendships.  Even when things don't go as planned or an unexpected outcome comes into play, i love that you have designed me to come to you and seek you.  I love you so much Lord and thank you for always pursuing me- even in the everyday, life.  I love living in and around my brothers and sisters who are in the same boat- faithless, but seeks for the faithful.  You are the only faithful one, our rock-solid and strong.  Thank you for holding onto us so tightly!
