This is a beautiful story, I was in tears from the time I pressed play.


You are all I need

16 Sep


At the Summit, we are currently going through a series called “Gospel” and as part of this series, JD gave us all a bookmark with the Gospel prayer he wrote on it.  The second part of the prayer is probably the part I relate to and prayer the most, with the most reflection.  It says “You are all I need today for everlasting joy.”  I think this part of the prayer is the one I need the most because, well, it’s really easy to get discouraged and want more out of life and what has been given to me.  I mean, I want a job.  I want more friends, especially in the Raleigh area. I want a serious relationship.

I believe, I truly believe God is going to provide me with those things.  I have gotten interviews, which hopefully will provide a job.  I’d love to work at ASNC, but I just had that interview this morning.  I believe God is slowly opening doors for me to make new friends in the area, and He is also showing me that my friends that may not live close to me think I am worth the drive to visit.  And He is showing me that I already have some WONDERFUL friends.  Just because I don’t see them as often as I could at UNC doesn’t mean they stopped caring about me.  It just requires us to be more intentional in our friendships.  I believe God is preparing my heart for a wonderful man.  And I believe that at the moment, God is transforming my heart, so I am not quite ready to have that serious relationship because I have to make sure God stays number 1.  And God is using me in my singleness.  And I am embracing that.  God is pursuing me and in this showing me how to be pursued.  I know I am worth it. Every single woman is worth it, and should never settle.

It is so encouraging to know that God is all I need for joy.  There is a difference between happiness and joy.  I can be happy, but joy fills my heart.  It’s a different kind of feeling, and it is wonderful. To know that God can give me this everlasting joy is more than enough.  And I will delight in it, delight in His love.  God really loves us.  If He didn’t, He wouldn’t have sent His Son as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins.  He took His place on the cross so that after my life on this earth is over, I will never have to experience separation from God again, and my soul will be complete.  And I can’t wait.
