Welcome! I’m glad you dropped by!
Jesus follower. Daughter. Sister. Fiancée to Rob. Student teacher. Quiet listener. Lover of naps and Dr. Pepper and cats.
The title has a bit of a double meaning…
First, I want this place to be a little look into my life. Pictures. Stories. Those sorts of things.
Second, the title comes from a prayer in the “The Valley of Vision.” It pretty well sums up my life. I would not be the person I am without my relationship with God. He faithfully loves me in spite of the sinner I am. He gives me hope and purpose. I hope to spend my time on earth knowing, serving, and glorifying Him.
The Life Look
I bless Thee for the happy moment
when I first saw that law fulfilled in Christ,
wrath appeased, death destroyed, sin forgiven,
my soul saved.
Ever since, Thou hast been faithful to me:
daily I have proved the power of Jesus’ blood,
daily I have known the strength of the Spirit,
my teacher, director, sanctifier.
I want no other rock to build upon than that I have,
desire no other hope than that of gospel truth,
need no other look than that which gazes on the cross.
Forgive me if I have tried to add anything to the one foundation,
if I have unconsciously relied upon my knowledge, experience, deeds,
and not seen them as filthy rags,
if I have attempted to complete what is perfect in Christ;
May my cry always be, Only Jesus! only Jesus!
In Him is freedom from condemnation,
fullness in His righteousness,
eternal vitality in His given life,
indissoluble union in fellowship with Him;
In Him I have all that I can hold;
enlarge me to take in more.
If I backslide,
let me like Peter weep bitterly and return to Him;
If I am tempted, and have no wit,
give me strength enough to trust in Him;
If I am weak,
may I faint upon His bosom of eternal love;
If in extremity,
let me feel that He can deliver me;
If driven to the verge of hope and to the pit of despair,
grant me grace to fall into His arms.
O God, hear me,
do for me more than I ask, think, or dream.
