2014 * Watching & Waiting

Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name give glory,

for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!
(Psalm 115:1 ESV)

This is the heartbeat of our home – that in all that we are, in all we do, we desire and strive to reflect the glory of the Lord, to bring honor to His name, to proclaim Christ.

This year, Tyler and I celebrate ten years since we started dating (and we are coming up on our 7th wedding anniversary, with two little men filling our arms and hearts.)

His great grace amazes me!

As we started out, we recognized a couple of things…

1. We want a godly marriage.

2. We want children.

3. We want to love each other and to raise our children well in the gospel of truth and grace.

4. We are a people called to Himself and we will obey.

5. We want to bring great fame and glory to the name of Jesus Christ, through our lives, our home, our ministry, our jobs, in everything we are and everything we do.

And these are still our desires.

Through these desires, the Lord calls me to pray, where through His Word, He gives me Himself and desires and dreams. Here, I lay down these dreams and desires, delighting in Him and standing back to watch all that He will do. This is a life-process for me,…

So, we set our face to the Lord’s, nose to nose. We are desperate for Him. He has led us through some dark places and wonder-full places. He is Light and He is Wonder. He is the Path-maker, we walk with Him. He is Life, for our life.

And as we set our face to the Lord & we watch Him do His great work, we say – – 

Not to us, O LORD, not to us,

but to your name give glory,

for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!
