Standing in the midst of the congregation my heart beats heavy like a kick-drum.
Riding on the city bus all of my being is overrun with longing.
Walking the concrete sidewalks on campus, I feel like I'm drowning in amazing grace...
Kneeling beside my bed, I weep and weep and weep not able to pinpoint what's happening to me.
Whenever I read, think, hear or even speak the life giving words of Christ they hit me with knockout blows to my inner-man causing irregular breathing.
Repentance is the first thing I do as I try to cover all the bases.
The simplest words of God draw me to repentance!
This season of life seems like I can't do anything right
Yet I have become experienced in crying and repentance
Who can explain this!?
Why does my spirit constantly groan!?
How can someone read joyful words from the LORD and then begin to moan?
My Father reminds me of my prayers, He has answered me.
Daily for months I prayed for Godly sorrow to become apart of me.
I desired to be drawn to repentance with Godly sorrow.
He is faithful!
Oh what an awesome and gut wrenching season to be drawn to the heart of the Father with Godly sorrow
2nd Corinthians 7:10- For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.

I love to write. These writings come from my time in the Word of God, from observation, and trails in life. I pray that you will be blessed as you read them.
