HE knows you're a girl...

isn't that a refreshing thought? (ok, well, if you're a guy reading this, then maybe not, but keep reading, it still makes sense, I promise) While going through a study from one of my favorite teachers, BM, she made this very simple statement. It wasn't really the focus of the lesson, but an important side note.

HE knows who you are. HE knows where you've been. HE knows where you're going.

Know why?

HE made you!!

HE has been there every step of the way and will be till the end. HE's seen the end.

And no matter where you're going, no matter what you're coming from, HE has made you the way you are. Don't try and back out of where HE tells you in your heart you're to go or to do.

HE. MADE. YOU. HE knows the desires of your heart and exactly what will fill your life with passion and joy for life and for HIM.

I know I sometimes wonder: Do you remember who I am? Do you remember what happened last time? Do you remember that I'm a girl?

He remembers. And that's why He's set this path before me. That's why He's set yours before you.

Isn't that refreshing?

Passion 2010

"God is the one being in the earth for whom self-exaltation is not a needy form of egotism, but an act of infinite giving"
- J.P.

Passion 2010 in Atlanta, GA was amazing! If you're not familiar, Passion is an organization focusing on 18-25 year olds and their passion for HIM. They have conferences all over the world, and just had an amazing one with over 21,000 students from all over the US, as well as many from places like Brazil, Ukraine, Bermuda, China, England, Scotland, Wales, Mexico, Uganda, Australia, and more! Here's a little look at an inspiring 4 days!

This is a bunch of us waiting at the MARTA station (subway) at about 1:00am after the conference waiting to head back to the house for a few hours of sleep before heading back early the next morning!

Waiting in line was pretty common when you put 21,000 college students together in one place, but we were always having fun! This time we're waiting for...

the escalators!
