I hope you took the time to read over Psalm 23 for yourself, if not I highly encourage you too:) This song has been stuck in my head all week and it is completely based off of Psalm 23. It's too good to keep it to myself. I hope you all have a lovely Friday and remember to be refreshed in Jesus. At the end of the week we often crash so fall into the arms of our amazing shepherd as you end your week. OH and don't forget to take a sabbath, they are great, I look forward to mine every week!

I'm just completely blown away by how the Lord pursues us and guides us and takes care of us all for His glory. As I was going through this study I realized that God is so trustworthy yet I do not think that I could not be as bold as David. He says "I lac…

sacrificial love & undeserving grace

I wonder by Leeland
My dad and I have always had the same taste in music and we often share our music with each other. We both enjoy the band Leeland and I have been listening to this song on repeat. The words are so powerful and hit me every time. 
Jesus Christ You bled Your love, laid down Yourself And gave me life In naked shame You hung and You were lifted high Here I lay in awe and wonder I am afraid For no one’s ever sacrificed and loved me this way So on my face I fall under Your heavy grace Here I lay in awe and wonder And I wonder
God's grace and his sacrificial love completely blows my mind. I'm so grateful yet I'm probably not thankful enough for all that His has done for us and what He is currently doing through us. I encourage you to rest in His grace this week. Remember that you are God's beloved.
