Risky Risky

Today, I took a risk
I've dreamt this dream a long while
I've flirted with it
Took a baby step here
A baby step there
But today I took the plunge
Only God knows where He'll take me
But come what may
I can finally say
I made a dream a reality
And stepped into the unknown

Is there something you have been dreaming about?  Longing to do? 
If so, what's keeping you from "stepping out there"?

Raining Joy

Tonight, for the first time in a long time, I cried. But these were no ordinary tears. It feels so good to cry tears of joy instead of tears of shame or pain. I am overwhelmed at God's amazing love and how He shows me it in the smallest of ways. I can't stand in His knees are weak. Yet here I am, totally captivated by His sweet mercies and caught up in his loving embrace.

I truly can't imagine living my life without Him. From the outside, some may wonder why I'm so grateful. My bills aren't all paid, my relationships aren't always right, and my kids make me want to hide in my closet at times. But when I reflect over this time, this season, right now, I know I am exactly where I should be. His grace overwhelms me.

What about you? When's the last time you cried? Were they tears of joy or pain? Heartache or shame? Confusion? Loss? My hope for you is that your tears will turn into tears of joy...raining joy and you, like me, will become captivated by the One who loves you so.
