Church Notes & A Prayer

It was a long week, but the Lord is very faithful. Here is something I wrote earlier in the week, and some notes from church last week.

Lord I need you so much right now, I am so confused and tiered. I am happy to say that I am closer to You than I have even been before, but it hurts and I am so tiered. I'm so tiered of hurting! Sometimes I just wish I could go home, Heaven has never been so sweet. Some days I wish I could just curl up in your arms and rest, but then other days I am ready and willing to go to the ends of the Earth for You Lord. Why am I so fickle... why is it so hard for me to do what You want me to do? It's crazy how I can be filled with your love and joy but still ache on such a deep level. I supposed that is the conundrum of the Christian walk. Please Lord help me to endure for you. I love you so much.

A couple weeks ago I was in a church service in which the speaker talked about "stepping forward in obedience, but weeping every step of the way." It's sometimes absolutely heart-rending to trust God - not always joy and peace and the nice stuff. But I guess it's those times in which we really lean on Him.

Woah, deep comment for my first on your site. I enjoy your art, the blog, Pottercasting, etc. Keep it up, Frak!

The Christian walk is not as easy one, and I have been having my own struggles as of late. It's times like these we really learn to lean on him and listen in the quietest of moments.
It's not easy, but I've come to see we all end up coming out of these times stronger than we were.

Frak, I've had the same feelings, but God is always there and our love is always strong

I always forget that our purpose on this earth is to know God and allow that relationship to make us different in everything we do. That is how we are an example of HIM and make a difference on this earth. If the journey was easy, at the end it would be an ok story to tell. He walks us through our lives, the hard times and at the end. Wow what a Story! The cool part is, he really never leaves us to do it alone.
