I wrote an instagram post, and it got too long…
As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight. Psalm 16:3 Jesus, teach me to delight in the company and love of the brothers and sisters I have in Your grace. You were killed by sinners, but it was You...

"Look up." This was a refrain that I constantly had to repeat on my trip. The human tendency to look at our eye level is sooo strong. I enjoyed that the mindset of the artists and architects of that time was to draw our attention off of our normal plane of reference, towards the sky and heavens, to guide our eyes to the wonder all around us. Granted, in Versailles that urge gets just a little baroque, but the every time I look at one of these upward looking photos I am reminded: Look up. 

There is more to life than what stares us in the face. Last night I was outside on one of those crystal clear early fall nights, and with the author of Psalm 8 I was amazed: “When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?” Look up. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.” Look up. Our Father is good and loving, just and kind. Look up, away from the waves that threaten to overwhelm, and fix your eyes on Him who will never leave nor forsake. Look up.

Actually managed to fight through the mid-week fog and write something this morning.
Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” (Matthew 14:31 ESV) Father, I have always loved this story. I love your serene concern to foolhardy Peter… That to you...

I'm not sure what made me happier... The light, or randomly remembering that that is called a "distaff". :-P

Proverbs 31:19.

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
‭‭Hebrews 13:8

Father, thank you for this reminder… that no matter what has happened, what is crashing into me, or what I fear or hope for tomorrow, You are the same, glorious, loving, and faithful. Today is unique. I will never get it back. It is a precious, providence-soaked resource to be spent wisely and in glorification of Your great name. Forgive me Lord. I have spent many days impatiently waiting for another day, a different set of circumstances. I have wasted perfectly good days wondering and worrying about the next. Thank you for this prick of your word. This is "the" day, and like Ms. O'Connor wrote I will not only submit, I will not only "struggle to submit, but […] struggle to accept, and with passion." Thank you for this day Lord. I recognize it as a gift from you, please help me use it wisely. In Jesus' precious name, amen.

On the odd chance that someone doesn't have one yet, does anyone need a google inbox invite? I have a couple.

These days… my morning coffee shop runs see more stressful surrendering than Appomattox ever saw.
Jesus… Thank you for bringing a theme of surrender to my heart again and again. It’s one thing to describe you as my Lord, it’s another entirely put myself to death. I have been finding my mind constantly gnawing on my fears and worries and putting...

Last nights +Keith Urban #raiseemuptour show was pretty epic. I don't think I've seen a performer who acted more grateful to his fans... He took a lot of time to sign, take selfies, chat, and even came up to this mini stage to be near all of us in the nosebleeds. I was impressed.
