Give Me Jesus

I watched "Courageous" for the first time over the weekend and I absolutely loved it! I really loved "Fireproof" an it was one of my very favorite movies, but "Couragous" was so good, it has surpassed "Fireproof" and gone to the top of my movie favorite list! I think the thing that I loved about it was not only the great and believable storyline, but the fact that it had me laughing at one moment and crying in the next. If you haven't seen it, I really recommend that you do. I'm sure you'll like it as much as I do.

This weekend, we got my loveseat that I adore so much, moved from the library to the living room again. Oh, how happy I am to see my gorgeous couch back in the living room! It's one of those pieces of furniture that just makes my heart happy every time I look at it. Silly, I know. Anyway, I'm really going through things and if they don't mean something to me or don't fit into my decor, they are going "bye-bye". I already have 2 boxes full of things to donate to the thrift store! It's so nice to have space and to be able to really see the few things that are left. It's taking me a lot of time to do all these things because if I do too much, the pain reminds me that I shouldn't have. I'm so blessed to have my husband and son's help, though! They have been just beyond wonderful in helping me.

I'm so sad because I found out today that my dear friend fell at the Women's Retreat and broke her ankle! I am praying that the Lord will comfort her and heal her. Such a horrible thing to happen! I pray that her pain subsides quickly.

Life can be complicated, can't it? One minute you're walking along and the next thing you know, you're dealing with a broken ankle, or a herniated disc, or cancer, or some other issue that throws your whole life into chaos. For me, the only way of dealing with all this is to have Jesus in my life. To have a true and complete relationship with Him! He comforts me like no one else can and gives me the hope that is no where else to be found. When I sit with His Word and read his love letter to me, it can bring me out of my despair and it's like getting a warm hug from a friend. Just give me more of Jesus!

May God bless your week!

Blessings - Julie
