I live in Portand, Oregon and don't plan on leaving. I'm in love with a boy; in love with Christ exponentially more.
I want God to lead me through sanctification in a way that equips me to see the world and everyone in it differently.
My posts are for my own benefit—using writing as an outlet to document and organize my thoughts as well as lessons I’m learning. Hopefully, you will gain some insight through them. God is constantly editing my perspective—confronting my mindset and altering each one that isn’t representative of his heart. Jesus is steadily revealing His reality and relevancy, and only because of His faithful pursuit of my life am I gaining understanding of Him and the world. Seeing how he rearranges my values, convictions, and desires is evidence of how needy I am to grow and mature, and this realization alone makes me desperate for the grace and hope of Christ to lead every aspect of my life.

Our mistake is that we want God to send revival on our terms. We want to get the power of God into our hands, to call it to us that it may work for us in promoting and furthering our kind of Christianity. We want still to be in charge, guiding the chariot through the religious sky in the direction we want it to go, shouting ‘Glory to God,’ it is true, but modestly accepting a share of the glory for ourselves in a nice inoffensive sort of way. We are calling on God to send fire on our altars, completely ignoring the fact that they are our altars and not God’s.

Besides being complicated, reality, in my experience, is usually odd. It is not neat, not obvious, not what you expect.
