Day 6 (Unexpected Adventure)

Today is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Lenten season. My friend and I are doing the She Reads Truth Lent reading plan, and I highly recommend it to everyone. You can find day 1 here:

I laughed upon reading this: “Lent is a pause button.” HA! As if my life wasn’t already a pause button! But now, through blogging and this Lent study, I feel like my “pause” is for a purpose. I’m learning words like “penitent” and “contrite” and praying those words shape my heart during this season. Learning more of where I fall short and how awesome His grace and mercy is.
This pause in my life was no surprise to Him. 
Job 42:2
I know that You can do anything and no plan of Yours can be thwarted.

I know He is good. I know He is powerful. I know His strength is made perfect in my weakness. I know He sees the big picture. I know that His perfect love casts out all of my fear and doubts and anxiety. I know He is fighting for me. I know He is molding me and shaping me for the future He has prepared for me. 
He wants to excite me. He wants to thrill me. He wants to take me on an adventure. He also wants to chisel away everything that does not look like Himself.  However painful, humbling, or long it takes… “It’s frightening to be swimming in this strange sea, but I’d rather be here than on land.” (Out of my League by Stephen Speaks)

As Christy Nockels says, “Here’s my life, I give it to You. I place it in Your hands.”
Song for today
(given to me by my sweet friend Jenna)
Boldly I Approach by Rend Collective 
By grace alone somehow I stand

Where even angels fear to tread

Invited by redeeming love

Before the throne of God above

He pulls me close with nail-scarred hands

Into His everlasting arms


When condemnation grips my heart

And Satan tempts me to despair

I hear the voice that scatters fear

The Great I Am the Lord is here

Oh praise the One who fights for me

And shields my soul eternally


Boldly I approach Your throne

Blameless now I’m running home

By Your blood I come

Welcomed as Your own

Into the arms of majesty


Behold the bright and risen Son

More beauty than this world has known

I’m face to face with Love Himself

His perfect spotless righteousness

A thousand years, a thousand tongues

Are not enough to sing His praise


Boldly I approach Your throne

Blameless now I’m running home

By Your blood I come

Welcomed as Your own

Into the arms of majesty


This is the art of celebration

Knowing we’re free from condemnation

Oh praise the One, praise the One

Who made an end to all my sin

Boldly I approach Your throne

Blameless now I’m running home

By Your blood I come

Welcomed as Your own

Into the arms of majesty

Dream With Me!
