Oh the joys...

... of mountain living!! :)  Little feet making trails in the soft, moist dirt - watching my little brother jump excitedly as he bends down to help plant a strawberry plant - sitting with my family on a blanket, surrounded by the beautiful mountains of Colorado - listening to Daddy reading the Word to the family ... no words can describe my happy feelings about today!  Just the fact alone that we actually live in the mountains is so cool! :D Praise be to God for a beautiful, peaceful day!

"I am willing, I am Yours."


My life is nothing without Him.  I know that now.  I really don't like my flesh. My old man.  My sin.  It got it's way yesterday.  I got upset at something little, like the day wasn't going how it was supposed to... you get the picture?  I really wanted to surrender to Jesus and the Holy Spirit, but then what happens?  Of course I give in to flesh.  Ish. That's what we call the old man in the Rosen home. Ish.  Eric Ludy once gave a sermon about the old man, and mom and dad announced to the family, "Kids, what comes after the 'self' in 'selfish'?" We answered: Ish.  The rest is history.  Anyhow, that was a sidenote. What I really want to get across is that my life stinks.  Sure, there are feel-good moments.  But apart from Jesus Christ, everything about me stinks.  I admit it, and you may be shocked that I would actually say that.  But this blog is not about me.  It is not supposed to be about me or my thoughts, anyways.  This blog is supposed to be all about Him.  Look up at the blog title.  'The words of a girl after His heart,' it says.  I want that to describe me. I pray it does.  At least I'm working towards that.  I want Him so much.  This is one quote that sums up my feelings today....


                                                                             "I am not brave, I'll never be...
The only thing my heart can offer is a vacancy
I'm just a girl, nothing more
But I am willing
I am Yours"
("Be Born In Me" from Music Inspired by the Story)

everything.

If nothing ever goes right in my life, and if nothing ever goes the way I planned it to, I'm alright with that, Lord.  You are the only one who really matters.  Everything I do should honor You.  I love you, Lord.  Help me to share your Word with my family, and my friends, and even with total strangers.  Make my face to shine like Moses' did after he spent time with You.  Make people's hearts stir because of Your Love.  Help me to share Your Love.  You are everything, and I am nothing.  Help me to have your life within me.  Help me to shine for You.  Not so that people may notice me, Lord, but so that people may be drawn closer to You. They need You, Jesus, and so do I, every second of every minute of every hour of every day.   You are everything. 


Everything.
