down in my soul that i can’t contain, that i can’t control. i want more of You God.

December 27th // Where the Battle is Won or Lost →
myutmostdevo: ’If you will return, O Israel,’ says the Lord … —Jeremiah 4:1 Our battles are first won or lost in the secret places of our will in God’s presence, never in full view of the world. The Spirit of God seizes me and I am compelled to get alone with God and fight the battle before Him. Until I do this, I will lose every time. The battle may take one minute or one year, but that...
godcolorsintheworld: Fill me up, God. Fill me up, God. Fill me up, God. Fill me up.
i don’t like who i am lately. i’m making things harder than they should be. i’m losing sight of what’s important in my life. i’m focusing more on myself and less on the Lord. i just feel ugly, in heart and mind. i’m not who God has intended me to be and it’s frustrating. i’m not the woman that is fully seeking after God’s heart. i’m becoming someone i don’t like and i really need to...

My Prayer Warrior
You have My full attention when you call My name. Don’t ever underestimate the power of your prayers. I want you to confidently call on heaven, that you may see My mighty hand move on earth. Your words spoken in someone’s dark hour will move My spirit to light their path. Your prayer for someone who is lonely will usher in My comfort. Your prayer for protection over someone in danger...
and all these things shall be added to you.
what if you were obedient and sought first My kingdom everyday but in the end the things that were added to you weren’t the things you had intended or expected? what if I didn’t give you all the things you earnestly desired and prayed for? will you worship Me the same? will you seek to glorify Me still? will you still love Me and seek Me with all your heart, mind, soul, and...
patience with the right perspective.
though it’s not a bad thing to do, we still should not be waiting for God to bless us. we should not be waiting for that job, that relationship, that car, that specific answer, that promise to be fulfilled, that one thing that may benefit or satisfy us only. what we should be patiently waiting for is for God to work in and through us in that time, to mature us and strengthen us and then...
to surrender all and let Him take control of the throne.
Anonymous asked: your testimony has inspired me. i struggled with some of those same things and have felt so guilty. i honestly believe that God has forgiven me, yet sometimes I still feel that feeling in my gut. I told a close friend and she was supportive. How do i get that to go away? that feeling of guilt and unworthyness? It doesnt come everyday, just sometimes.

fire back →
rootedinhislove: I’m sick of half way prayers and apathetic worship. I’m sick of proclaiming a miraculous God and not living in the miraculous. I’m sick of declaring His intimacy and closeness when I can’t even manage to spend time with Him. I want my fire back. I want to be in dangerous proximity to Him. I want Him to win the battles of temptation in my heart, not the devil. I want holy...

I will fix my eyes on You
I lift my hands and turn my eyes to the God who heals my heart and gives me peace. You are more than my words could ever say. You are Lord over all, over all of my days. I will see this season through I will fix my eyes on You.
