He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

I know Who I Am
One of the things I have always struggled with as a Christian is who I am in Christ. I have a huge tendency to gaze intently at others and their lives...their talents, their gifts, their children, their body types, the way they steward their homes,ect,ect,ect. I have talked myself in believing the LIE that the Lord, let alone my husband would never really accept me as I am. I have made God out to be a liar, and his word not TRUTH, all from seeds of doubt that I have feed, and watered over the course of time. I finally am coming to the point where enough is enough. I am really trying to go hard in my walk with Christ where I am not ashamed to share with Kevin or close friends my struggles. Honesty and Humility is truly the pathway to revival. I believe there is some AMAZING GRACE waiting there for me. This past week at the conference a friend of ours lead us in praise and worship. The Song was I know Who I Am by Israel & New Breed Feat. Chris Tomlin. The words just spoke so much truth over me. This song as well as various verses on who the LORD say that I am in Him will be my meditation until my mind is renewed. I really have to believe all that I say that I believe. This walk is a beast!!! Praise God its possible through HIM!! Now if you will... I need to print the list below :)
