Heart Check


In light of growing up in a christian home, going to christian schools and colleges and now working for a christian organization, I sometimes find I need to fight to remember the passion I have for my faith.  Not to say I have considered leaving it for another. To whom else would I turn?  Seeking another is not optional. Rather, having been so saturated by theology, doctrine, and scripture that I used to have to memorize for finals, I am weary that I will lose the aroma of the person of Christ that first captivated my heart.

What I have found to refresh and renew my heart’s affections is simply remembering who He is.  Because in remembering who He is, I discover who I am.  And in realizing my identity is not based on my own abilities or accomplishments but instead determined by His ownership of my soul, life and freedom are restored.

I recently realized that my life is somewhat of a beautiful mess. A "pollack-type-picture" if you will, of colors, experiences, and people that, despite the seeming disarray, is captivating & confusing; patterened & yet unpredictable. But most of all, it is mysteriously designed, purposed, and appointed. For what? I don't know yet... but I'm learning as I go.

  1. I love that montage to S.M. Lockridge! I have “That’s My King” on my iTunes, but that was even better. Such a perfect reminder of how limitless our Lord and Savior is!
