brisimp God does things when we least expect them. We aren't supposed to try and calculate the exact time and place when something is going to happen but live our lives daily in constant prayer and in awh of his love allowing that to transform us. To be radically changed by the spirit of God all while having faith and devotion.
Devotion means to be steadfast.
When you are comfortable you need to change
Being a disciple of Jesus:
1. Devoted to God (read the gospel)
2. Relationship and fellowship
3. The breaking of bread. Intimacy of sharing a meal. Union with Christ
4. Devoted to prayer

brisimp When you are comfortable you need to change.
You are comfortable by the things of this world and sooner or later those things shall fall.

God is the only comfort we need, and we will experience it in full once we get there.
And since we aren't there experience the discomfort knowing it to shall pass.

brisimp Faithful You have been and faithful you will be
You pledge yourself to me and it’s why I sing // God uses everything for his glory. In the midst of that it is our job as believers to look to him to find the path (Proverbs 3:6) And to have faith that what ever is happening God is fighting for us. (Exodus 14:14) He wants us to pray, to communicate with him our hearts and thoughts. Usually when problems arise we are quick to become frazzled and call on God. But do we call on him in despair or in faith? There's always something that we should be working on, whether our motives are being challenged or our mind is being changed. Progress should be happening. Be bold, be confident, persevere, be patience, and pray.
Thankful that God delights to be with us. It just makes me giddy thinking about it. I ask God that he continues to bring my faults to surface and that I am open to the challenge and the change. That I can look to him for guidance and have hope in the things I have no control over. Thankful for the community he has provided and blessed me with. And for his everlasting love.

brisimp // Through it all when life shakes
You still stand
Through the chaos and struggle
You're love remains
Through it all
You stay the same // Life is full of change. Yes a lot of days look the same but when you take a moment to look back everything is different. Don't get caught up in the change but be caught up in the constant. That God, His love, and what the word says about him is unchanging.

brisimp "He must increase, I must decrease."- John 3:30 // We often times try to fix a problem without realizing the root of it all. We often times forget to examine our own hearts, which is usually where the underlying issue stays hidden. Give it all to God and allow him to bring out the righteous from the unrighteous. Pray and ask that he prepare you for the change and that you may endure knowing his faithfulness never fails. And the best is still to come.
Embrace the change for it is a good thing. |

brisimp | found |
It was never that bad.
Roof over her head always.
Food available at all times.
Never abused.
Always loved.
But something was still missing.
School was never an issue.
Athletic and talented.
Friends and family present.
Never any issues.
Always loved.
But something was still missing.
Her parents had problems, but even though it didn't effect here directly, it still had an impact nonetheless.
She didn't know.
And neither did they.
After all they had their own issues.
The oldest of three, she was the natural born leader.
But leading sometimes means following.
She didn't know that then.
And even now she sometimes forgets.
It was never that bad.
But still something was missing.
She attended church as far back as she can recall.
Family picnics were always happening.
They were close, closer than most.
She loved, loves them.
And they loved, love her.
But still something was missing.
As she began to age her parents finally split.
At the time she tried to show that it had no impact, but it was more than visible.
Although she could never see it.
It wasn't until the summer right before high school, that she herself noticed that something was missing.
And she being the person she was/is had to find it.
Because something was indeed missing.
The love of all love.
The purest perfect never changing, constant, persistent, unfathomable love.
The thing from which all good things flow. She needed it, she longed for it, she wanted it. And it wanted her.
She got a glimpse of it that summer.
But it was just that.
Her high school career being at its last year.
The glimpse came back more as a faint beam.
She had found what had been missing.
She learned that the more she dwelled in the light the brighter it got.
The light began to change her.
Change her in such a way she didn't notice it was happening until the change had already been done.
The light was magnificent.
It made her feel like nothing she had ever felt before. It was radiant and different.
She loved the light.
And the light loved her.

brisimp When God so graciously hits you with the truth it changes reality.
I want to be content with his commitment. The fact that he chases after us day in and day out all the time, is unfathomable.
Sitting in church my mind was just on a tangent. Going through the past week's events. School starting, trying to figure out my work schedule and if I can get another job closer to campus. The expenses that come along with adulthood and just life and trying to finagle it all while having an immune system that's defense is being tested.
God being the sovereign one that he is just reminded me "Brionna how many times have I let you down, unanswered your prayers, left you neglected?"
Of course the answer is never.
He never has.
He can't; it goes against his nature. God proceeded to remind me that he won't stop now. His love is unchanging. And what I may worry with today will be worth it tomorrow. I don't need to worry he already has it all taken care of big and small. And to simply give it all to him.
I've been really focusing on trying to have purposeful prayer and being consistent in that.
I can't explain the sermon to you all that well because I was in and out of thought, being reconciled with, quiet tired, and coughing in between. But what I can tell you is God is at work and we should be too. He is faithful, worthy of ALL in all. And he longs for us to dwell with him through it all.
I'm thankful that even when we may say no God says yes and when you allow your heart to be seen he'll make it worthy of showing.

brisimp [ just because it's right doesn't always mean it's safe ]
That being said break the brackets.
God calls us into the unknown sometimes to test our faith. Will we solely rely on him and find comfort in him and him alone? Or will we back down with fear and trembling?
Where every we go he is with us. Rain or shine, night or day. He is there.
Letting him lead and allowing ourselves to follow with ultimately bring us blessing. In the moment (which lasts as long as the word) it may seem like a mess but just wait beauty is just around the river bend.

brisimp • Psalm 23 •
I just feel like I fall in love with God all over again whenever I read this. It's been my prayer for this season of life. The message version of verse six says "your beauty and love chase after me everyday of my life." ||
God is chasing after us every moment of everyday. It just blows my mind. I want to be content w/ his commitment.

brisimp // God's always at work and we should be to. He's our personal trainer and biggest advocate. When he's in the midst of teaching us new things and changing our hearts be prepared, for the enemy is always at our heals waiting for us to trip. We must'n fret though for the greatest of races has already been won but let's give him a run for his money anyways! 1mon

But they are silenced
They stand tall and strong
Then come crashing down to their death hitting shore
Their lives short
Washed away once more
