unfailing love

i went to biblegateway.com and typed in "unfailing love". and these are the treasures that i found.


Sow for yourselves righteousness
reap the fruit of unfailing love
and break up your unplowed ground
for it is time to seek the LORD
until he comes and showers righteousness on you.
Hosea 10:12


Though he brings grief
he will show compassion,
so great is his unfailing love.
Lamentations 3:32


"Though the mountains be shaken 
and the hills be removed
my unfailing love for you will not be shaken 
nor my covenant of peace be removed," 
says the LORD, who has compassion on you.
Isaiah 54:10


the LORD delights in those who fear him, 
who put their hope in his unfailing love.
Psalm 147:11


In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed.
In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.
Exodus 15:13


How priceless is your unfailing love! 
Both high and low among men 
find refuge in the shadow of your wings.
Psalm 36:7


Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love
that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
Psalm 90:14


O Israel, put your hope in the LORD
for with the LORD is unfailing love 
and with Him is full redemption.
Psalm 130:7



how can we doubt that He loves us? not even just a little. He doesn't just tolerate us, He doesn't just do the bare minimum... His love is UNFAILING. it defies human logic and understanding. it is not circumstantial or conditional. He IS love. re-read these verses and just let them sink in and marinate for a little while [and by all means, go type this into a biblegateway.com search for yourself, b/c these are only half of the verses that come up in the search]

hope spoken 2014 | a little recap

well. it feels weird to be back here in this space. i haven't regularly blogged for over a year. i'm feeling like it's time for a redesign but that's beside the point. i'm really here to tell you about Hope Spoken conference that i attended in dallas 2 weekends ago. everyone has been saying how they need time to process everything. i'm no exception. what i'm about to share is really an email i wrote to casey and danielle a few days after i got home, but i've edited and expanded a little. there is still so much more in my heart and mind that's not quite ready to come out:

i'm finally sitting down to pour out my heart after such an amazing weekend. the first thing that's hitting me is these three girls went with a dream and a mission and a calling from Jesus, and were brave to walk through the door and keep going, as danielle describes it. i'm sure they imagined how beautiful it would be but i don't think they could have imagined just …

the idol self-sufficiency

"O God of mine, I'll have no idols..." played over Pandora. "O God of Mine", an old song by Rita Springer, is a beautiful hymn-like melody with soothing vocals and peaceful piano music. deep in thought, as i always am, i was struggling with feelings of fear and shame that had been pulling me under the last few months. i'm determined to be free from its grip, so i'm digging in to find the roots and i'm arming myself with Truth and with practical tools. as that phrase sang form the speakers, it just flickered across my mind -- the idol of self sufficiency. i had never named it before, but i finally understood it as a huge aspect of my struggle with fear and a huge aspect of the burden of shame that i carry. (i wrote a little bit about that here)

now you're thinking i must be a planner, a doer, and get-things-done kind of gal. you're thinking i must run a pretty tight ship, i must be type-A.

and you'd be wrong. self-sufficiency is a idol f…

because He became a man

recently i had one of those days where my to-do list consisted of six different super-quick errands. seems simple enough to most people. before kids you could knock them all out in less than an hour and go about your day. but with kids, forget about it. you dread the outing for two days and put it off until you have no more food or toothpaste and your husband is wondering about the dry-cleaning and the alterations.

when you have to strap and unstrap three kids into their carseats for six different super-quick errands, it's a whole new kind of monster. it takes longer to get them in and out of the car than the amount of time we actually spend inside the post office, or the dry cleaner, or the bank. multiply that by six and we're all going crazy.

truly, there needs to be a drive-through dry cleaner, drive through full-service post office window, drive through banking (not just ATM but actually denominations-other-than-twenty banking), and a drive-up pre-order Target service woul…
