i'm praisin God for joy.

i'm praisin Him for life to the full through grace.

i'm praisin Him for friendships that are eternal.

i'm praisin Him for knowing what i need when i don't.

i'm praisin Him for simple joys.

i'm praisin Him for revealing Himself to me through people.

i'm praisin Him for unexpected joys...

and boldness ;)

i'm praisin Him that the mystery has been revealed to us.

i'm praisin Him for a cloud of witnesses.

i'm praisin Him that Canada is always where we'll come home to.

"be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus"
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Where else??

From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.

"You do not want to leave too, do you?" Jesus asked the Twelve.

Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God."

These words have been coming to me a lot this week. "To whom shall we go?" I am convinced that there is nowhere else to go. That nothing or no one will satisfy and bring life-giving joy but Jesus Christ. I know it in my heart to be true... I just wish and pray that I could align my life with it. I've filled my life with crappy things and been dissatisfied, but I've also filled my life with good things and been dissatisfied. Cause if they aren't Christ, they won't satisfy. They're nothing if I'm trying to make them fill a hole that they weren't shaped to fill. We were made for our Creator and our joy and delight comes from Him alone. I know this to be true. Lord, I pray that You'd work it out in me moment-by-moment.

After tasting in the true freedom and life that comes from Christ, I hate it that I go back to stupid, golden calves that waste my life. I'm a sinner who knows the truth. Praise God for that. I plead the blood of Christ.

Where else will you go?
