My desire..
I want to live like there's no tomorrow. I want to dance like noone's around. I want to sing like nobody's listening.
a life without grace.. isn't a life at all. a christian without grace.. isn't a christian at all.
These are my thots the day I write them.. doesn't mean that I may feel that way the next day or the day after.. it is how I feel and think at the moment that I share it.

I love it when God challenges my heart. I love it when He shows me things that I can't see on my own. Because that is when change comes. While I have been sick with this foot and cold... (the foot is doing great by the way.. the cold is lying me flat out)... I have been seeing something that I have allowed to happen in my habits and in my thought processes. Things that have just slowly begun and then grown. Things that I wouldn't like in someone else..... yet I am seeing them in me. Yuck!! I love that God's grace and His mercy is always enough for even me. And that nothing can seperate me from His love.

It is easy to think of God like we do people.. people's love is conditional, it has boundaries and limits. God never gives up on us and His love never fails. I am secure in that one thing.. and it is enough!!

thanks david
Was reading on my pastor's blog, if you haven't visited it yet you should.

There was a prayer that he posted as part of his blog entry and I echo it so strongly I wanted to repost it.

A prayer of Thomas Merton:
“Dear God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself and the fact that I think that I am following you will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe this... I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you.
I hope I have that desire in everything I do.
I hope I never persist in anything apart from that desire.
And I know that if I do this, You will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it at the time.
Therefore I will trust You always, for thought I may be lost and in the shadow of death I will not be afraid, because I know You will never leave me to face my troubles all alone.”

We are having a big lobster feast on Saturday night, can't wait!! What a great group of ladies. I have an absolute blast everytime we hang out. I feel so loved and safe with them.

About Me

Name: Joni
Home: New Brunswick, Canada
About Me: ..I do not claim to know a thing. In fact, I know very little. I do know that I only want to live life by the heart with love and compassion and away from the crowd and be real. I am who I am. What you see is what you get. I have spent so many years trying to be who others wanted me to be... it is empty. I am me.. who God created me to be. And I can't be anything less or more. And He cannot love me any less or more than He already does!
