That awesome feeling when God tells you something before it happens and you can’t wait til it does :D I mean, I can wait… I am just excited. Kinda bummed that it took me so long to believe it would. Just waiting on him now. When that day comes and his promises come alive… I will not be able to shut up haha. He’s so good!
sometimes you just need to let go, to say goodbye. And this isn’t even like a bad goodbye or a messy breakup goodbye, it’s more like a, “it’s better if right now we don’t speak” goodbye “because I care too much about your soul to ruin things with my silliness and untimely shenanigans” goodbye.
maybe later we will be friends again, but for now, the most times I will say your name in conversation is through my prayers for you to our Father. right now, this is what it’s gonna look like to love you like I am supposed to.
omgosh the last one im dying

YOU ARE the vine
I AM the branch.
You give me life and I am merely a vessel
through which you are free to pour your truth
IN because I surrender
THROUGH as your sanctifying breath burns away what displeases you
OUT to the masses to touch their hearts as well.
I have moments where I say, and believe,
My life is mine. I will do as I wish, at least just for this moment…
In my heart I expect your wrath
anger, disappointment, chastisement,
"who do you think you are? you are a branch."
Instead I receive
Kindness, mercy, grace. Patience. Long-suffering. Grace.
and in a moment of sobriety I am pierced by the conviction of
"who do I think I am? I am a branch.
I do not give myself life, or breath, or the ability to see another day. I do not save myself. I am not the potter. I am the clay.
It is only when I humble myself and realize my own brokenness that you graciously point me to your Son who stands in the gap, for me, a sinner.
all I am is yours.
I AM the branch.
