So creative, heart-warming and fun. I really love this!

that are accompanying all the (good, new, oddish) happenings in life at the current moment.
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.
Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.
Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.
High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
-Dallan Forgaill, 6th century
"Then he isn’t safe?" said Lucy.
"Safe?" said Mr. Beaver…. "Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you."
Is it weird that I think this kind of looks like me? Well the back of my head at least…haha
Lord, send me anywhere, only go with me.
Lay any burden on me, only sustain me.
Sever any tie but the tie that binds me to Thyself.
abba! I love seeing how you make the impossible possible for me, and I love witnessing how you knock down door after door for me as if it’s nothing for you because well, it really is nothing for you. you know how to make me sing! but more than the delight I find in these victories, it’s YOU I want and need. And I’m not just saying that to sound like a good, selfless little Christian, I mean it with all of my heart, I hope you know! These green lights do such a good job of decorating my walk with you, but it’s knowing you and being known by you that fuels the leaps of faith I take in life!
The truth is stunning. The truth is that the regular, everyday, earthly work of a Christian’s life possesses breathtaking significance bestowed by the touch of God’s magnificent glory. God pulls the white-hot ingot of eternity from the forging fire of his sovereignty. Then, like master to apprentice, he entrusts the hammer to our hands (Eccl. 9:10; Col. 3:17,23; 1 Cor. 10:31; 2 Thess. 3:6-12). He says, “Strike it. Strike it right here. This is your place. This is where I want you to influence eternity. Live the life I gave you to live.” And so, in stammering awe, we take up the hammer. We live our lives—-our regular, everyday, toilsome lives. The hammer falls. Sparks fly. Eternity bends, and the Master is delighted (Matt. 25:21).
There’s something massive going on here—-God’s epic cosmic story—-and we’re smack in the middle of it. He knows your name and mine. He’s given us each a life to live—-a regular, everyday life—-a particular place for us to shape eternity (Phil. 1:27; Col. 1:10; 1 Thess. 2:12;4:11; 2 Thess. 3:6-12)
You and I look at our ordinary lives and think, “Seriously? That’s supposed to be epic?” But the Master delights in it. He forges his masterpiece with it. And when we see what he’s done with it, it will blow our minds (1 Cor. 2:9). It will thrill the souls of men, dazzle the angels, delight the heart of God, and glorify his name. Forever.
