Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1

The word crazy does not even describe my life right now. Honestly, that would be toning it down. I often wonder, when will my life ever slow down? When will I be able to simply be? I have come to grips with the fact that I may never see that day...and I am okay with that. This is why:

I remember clearly the day I asked the Lord to radically change my life. I was tired of the everyday routine -- live your life and go to church on Sunday. I wanted more. I asked God to take me on the narrow path I always heard people talk about. I wanted to be challenged. I wanted to be a part of something that people often think is not worth living for. Let me tell you something, when you ask God to do something...He will.

Since that day my life has been a ridiculous roller coaster. I started working with youth and fell in love with them and the ministry - there is nothing that makes my heart beat like they do.'s amazing. I've been blessed to go on several mission trips - I never thought I would ever have a heart for something like this. Mainly because I am afraid. But man do I love meeting the people of God - there is nothing more beautiful. I am in seminary - I had to laugh a little while ago because I read a girl's tat on my left that was written in greek and a dude's tat on my right that was written in hebrew. I am reading greek and hebrew...what uppp. I live a good 11 1/2 hours away from home. Me..away from home who would have ever thought that? I am single and not married - and so thankful. The Lord has been doing so much restoring in my life. My faith has grown in ways I cannot even imagine and my love for Him...oh my love for Him. I am madly in love with our Lord. No one will ever capture my heart like He does. He pursues me in new ways each day. He speaks to me in ways that are special to me. He knows me. He loves me. Beautiful.

If I had to choose a better word for my life I would choose to use the greek word kaleo which means "called." I am called. I am called. I am called. And I will never ever look back.
