Showing posts from December, 2013

Think of it this way...

When times are hard and life seems dark, we wish for morning. For light. For the truth and solutions to be illuminated.  How fitting that the Lord, the One Who is the Light of the world, came in the darkness. He entered the world in the dark stillness of the night.  Just imagine Mary and Joseph. Traveling in the darkness. Hopeful for a hotel room.  Hopeful for peace and comfort.  Just imagine the wise men. Being led by a bright star. Hopeful and searching.  Aren't we the same? Hopeful. Searching. Yearning. Questioning. Needing.  He is Light. He is here. He is coming again.  I hope you have a very Merry Christmas. If you're in a hard spot, just know there is a great Light Who is bigger and stronger than the darkness you are encountering.  You are loved.  He loves you beyond measure. His grace goes beyond all sin. It's not too late to feel real peace. To truly start living.  Xoxo, Jessica 


Time. Is. Flying. Faster, faster, faster. I really had planned to be a good blogger. Life has been busy or I've been lazy or both. How is it mid-December?! How is 2013 almost over?! Mind is blown.  This entire month seems so overwhelming to me. So much to do. Such a long, looming to do list. So little time to get it all accomplished.  We're waiting. Nervously. With much anticipation. Senior grades are due tomorrow by 10:00 a.m., and we'll know for sure if Jordan gets to graduate on Friday. (No pressure, right?) Y'all, I'm not sure I've ever prayed for anything so much. This morning I had to sort of shift my prayer to "God, just let me find peace -  real, true peace - in knowing that no matter what happens, You have a plan." I want to be able to REJOICE. Either way. Sincerely.  This can be hard as a sinner, you know? I tend to pout and throw a tantrum like a toddler demanding a cookie before dinner rather than counting
