I am in love...with a Carpenter. I can't seem to get Him off my mind. I wonder what He thinks about who I spend time with and what we talk about. I ask His opinion on everything that worries me and on some things that don't. My heart aches every time I even think about disappointing Him. Whenever I think of Him, I start grinning - He is my joy.

He's always doing little things to make me smile. He fixes my car, He pulls strings to make situations easier for me, He's always there when the world starts falling apart. I'm head-over-heels crazy about Him. I think all my friends know it; I can't stop talking (and even singing) about Him almost full time. The really great thing is that He loves me too. He's written so many letters - a whole book full - telling me all about Himself and how much He loves me. Yes, I have found the Love of my life.

I am in love...with Christ.

It is amazing to me, the number of emotions we go through in a single day. Joy, peace, sorrow, pain, anger, forgiveness, guilt, happiness, lonliness, helpfulness - different situations cause a different person to emerge almost hourly. I think that's why it's so important to keep the core of peace and trust in God that can only come from constantly seeking after Him.

I have a tendency to lose track of my life's main focus, not to really lose anything, just to misplace it for a period of time. I get distracted and forget God, college, my friends - it seems like the lesser always replaces the larger. I can't read my Bible and pray; I need to take a shower. STUDY?? Have you seen the state of my ROOM lately?! I don't write my friends because I'm busily typing on my computer - obviously my many entries tell them enough about my life without my writing, calling, or hanging out...right?
The same principle is employed when I walk out back, close one eye, and cover the moon with my thumb. Ridiculously small things block out the larger and more important areas of my life.

Lord, help me re-focus.

"how can I live without one loving word from him, and every day I am hoping it will come."

"if you can once make up your mind to the fact that I am an undemonstrative man, not all fire and fury and ecstasy as you are, yet loving you with all my heart, however it my seem, I think you will spare yourself much needless pain -- and spare me also."

It's better to learn from the trials of others then to learn those same lessons via stubbornly making the same mistakes & going through the same trials they did. Lord, help.

Father, in the name of Jesus, I commit myself to walk the Word. Your word living in me produces Your life in this world. I recognize that Your word is integrity itself – steadfast, sure, eternal – and I trust my life to its provisions.

You have sent Your Word forth into my heart. I let it dwell in me richly in all wisdom. I meditate in it day and night so that I may diligently act on it. The Incorruptible Seed, the Living Word, the Word of Truth, is abiding in my spirit. That Seed is growing mightily in me now, producing Your nature, Your life. It is my counsel, my shield, my buckler, my powerful weapon in battle. The Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. It makes my way plain before me. I do not stumble, for my steps are ordered in the Word.

The Holy Spirit leads and guides me into all the truth. He gives me understanding, discernment, and comprehension so that I am preserved from the snares of the evil one. I delight myself in You and Your Word. Because of that, You put Your desires within my heart. I commit my way unto You and You bring it to pass. I am confident that You are at work in me now both to will and to do all Your good pleasure.

I exalt Your Word, hold it in high esteem, and give it FIRST place. I make my schedule around Your Word, I make the Word final authority to settle all questions that confront me. I choose to agree with the word of God and I choose to disagree with any thoughts, conditions, or circumstances contrary to Your Word. I boldly and confidently say that my heart is fixed and established on the solid foundation – the living Word of God!

We live by grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ
Who died to set us free
From chains our flesh can give
You know that even if you were the only one He died for
That means only your sins drove the nails

There's no way to repay
All the pain He went through for you
His reason: simply His love
It's time to see the truth
And understand there's nothing you can do
His reason was simply you

I cried out with no reply
And, I can't feel You
By my side, so
I'll hold tight to
What I know
You are here
And I'm never alone

God will never let me go. He's always been faithful, He doesn't change. I trust Him.

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You

To see You high & lifted up
Shining in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we cry holy, holy, holy

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."
(Hebrews 11:1, emphasis mine)
