Cry Out to Jesus...

This last week has been an end to three big things in my life. I don't feel ready for whatever God has in store for me. Then again, I do feel ready. I just have to trust Him and His perfect timing. The only thing I can do right now is cry out to Jesus. I heard this song by Third Day and I had forgotten how awesome it is. If you haven't heard it then check it out. Below are the words to the song. And then a small tribute to the 2 big things that ended last week.

Cry Out to Jesus
To everyone who's lost someone they love
Long before it was their time
You feel like the days you had were not enough
when you said goodbye

And to all of the people with burdens and pains
Keeping you back from your life
You believe that there's nothing and there is no one
Who can make it right

There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
Love for the broken heart
There is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He'll meet you wherever you are
Cry out to Jesus, Cry out to Jesus

For the marriage that's struggling just to hang on
They lost all of their faith in love
They've done all they can to make it right again
Still it's not enough

For the ones who can't break the addictions and chains
You try to give up but you come back again
Just remember that you're not alone in your shame
And your suffering

When your lonely
And it feels like the whole world is falling on you
You just reach out, you just cry out to Jesus
Cry to Jesus

To the widow who suffers from being alone
Wiping the tears from her eyes
For the children around the world without a home
Say a prayer tonight
This is a tribute to Sean. He has been the best manager I've ever had. And i'm so sad he is leaving the organization I work for. I just think it's funny that he gave me that coffee cup because he was actually the world's best boss! I will miss his vision, direction, and leadership. I'm praying for him, his wife, and daughter. They've had a lot of things happen to their family in the last 2 months so please lift them up if you can today. Sean taught me so much about being a leader, pushing for more, managing others, looking at the big picture, and keeping God and family before work. Sean grew me to be the employee I am today. I give him the credit for my success. He has made me a better person and I will miss him immensely at work. I was truly blessed to work for him for the last 21 months.

Titus 2:3-5

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.

Saturday night was the celebration dinner for the year long discipleship group I was in called "Titus 2". I was mentored by an amazing woman of God-Regina Williams. She molded and stretched me in ways I didn't even know was possible. I have memorized almost 40 verses in the tablet of my heart. The biggest takeaways for me was how to have a successful quiet time, the importance of scripture memory, and an example of what true authentic community looks like. I praise God for knowing the perfect year for me to be in this group. I'm coming out of it a better Christian, wife, woman, daughter, friend, and hopefully mom someday!


Thanks for listening...
