last night.

last night i had the marvelous opportunity to come together with some brothers and sisters in Christ and pray over the people within the city of auburn.

we met in the sun room a house downtown and sat around just expressing our hearts and what the Lord was doing in our lives and what we were struggling/ dealing with. it was awesome. the only word that i could come up with right now is awesome. i have read many books, heard many stories, had many conversations, and the only word i can come up with to describe what happened last night is "awesome." Truly.

the Lord is going to meet us. we are expecting it, we are planning and preparing for it. where two or more are gathered in His name, there He will be!

as you all know, i read "jesus calling" everyday. and every single day, it is perfectly appropriate for my life, and weirdly enough, the lives of those around me.

here is today's message, and after last night, it could not be more perfectly suited for me to hear.

I am all around you, hovering over you
even as you seek My face.
I am nearer that you dare believe, closer than the air you breathe.
if My children could only recognize My Presence,
they would never feel lonely again.
My Presence impinges on your innermost being.
can you see the absurdity of trying to hide anything from Me?
you can easily deceive other people, and
even yourself.
but i read you like an open, large-print book.

deep within themselves, most people have some awareness
of My imminent Presence.
many people run from Me and vehemently deny My existence,
because my closeness terrifies them.
By MY own children have nothing to fear,
for I have cleansed them by My blood and clothed them in My
be blessed by My intimate nearness.
since I live in you, let Me also live THROUGH you,
SHINING MY LIGHT into the darkness.

my God is so amazing. so awesome.

i am so full right now, i am beaming.

thank you Jesus, thank you for loving me, for finding me.
