So I don’t exactly know how I’m supposed to be doing this. I got this idea to do “31 days of…” here (www.chattingupthesky.com) I found this blog when I started reading Emily Freeeman’s book “Grace for the Good Girl”. Great book, you should check it out! This 31 days idea challenged me but it also got me really excited. I’ve been on a journey the past few weeks, and this is another part of it…31 days of searching for You, I’m searching for who God really is in an attempt to know him more in my own life. This is the heart of a college student, sister, daughter, friend. But more importantly I am a daughter of the Father, and this is my journey to finding out what that really means.

I hear you say “my love is over,
its underneath, its inside, its in between
the times you doubt me, when you can’t feel
the times that you’ve questioned ‘is this for real?’
the times you’ve broken, the times that you mend
the times you hate me and the times that you bend
well my love is over, its underneath
its inside, its in between,
these times you’re healing
and when your heart breaks
the times that you feel like you’ve fallen from grace
the times you’re hurting
the times that you heal
the times you go hungry and are tempted to steal
in times of confusion and chaos and pain
im there in your sorrow under the weight of your shame
Im there through your heartache
Im there in the storm
my love I will keep you by my power alone
I dont care where you’ve fallen, where you have been
I’ll never forsake you
my love never ends, it never ends
~Times, Tenth Avenue North

  1. I love how you include songs in your post. Often that’s how I find God getting my attention, reminding me of what his Word says, and drawing me back to it. I look forward to finding some of the ones you’ve posted! I keep hearing about Grace for the Good Girl. I think I’ll have to check it out 🙂

    • Thanks Emily! That is definitely the way in which I feel like God gets to my heart the most, and it’s often when I feel like I can best communicate with God. I can’t always think of words to describe how I am feeling, but I can think of a song that can…and I feel close to God.

      I am looking forward to reading some more of yours as well! Thanks for the encouragement, it is sort of weird thinking that people are actually reading what I write, it’s always just been me writing for myself…as a way of processing what is going on. And you should get a copy of it for sure! I’m about a third of the way in…taking my time with this one and really looking for what God is trying to teach me and listening.
