guest posting

i have been invited to post for "christians under construction" today. i don't know how lisa and i connected, but i'm willing to give God the credit for introducing us through our blogs. she has been an encouragement to me on the days when i wonder why i'm posting my bare heart out here in public. as a sister in Jesus, i love her and thank God for bringing us together. also, i look forward to that day when we will meet in the presence of our Lord.Link


in a moment of quiet
the desire for God,
for God himself
fills me,
a thirst that can be quenched
by no other.

in the night
i weep.
grief overcomes hope.

while difficulties multiply
some say,
“where is your God?”

the words pierce heart deep.

Every human being is

“formed to be a spectator of the created world –

and given eyes

that he might be led to its Author

by contemplating so beautiful a representation.”

~ John Calvin, Commentary on Romans 1:19
