i am always looking forward to the day in which
everything sad will become untrue. 

to the day when i will hear Jesus say that he knows me.

until then i aim to be more alive today 
than i was yesterday, 
or the day before, 
or ever. 

"and this is eternal life, that they may know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent."
-john 17:3


{about the blog title} 
from my favorite hymn, by jean sophia pigott

Jesus i am resting, resting
in the joy of what thou art
i am finding out the greatness
of thy loving heart
thou has bid me gaze upon thee
and thy beauty fills my soul
for by thy transforming power
thou hast made me whole

o how great thy loving kindness
vaster, broader than the sea
o how marvelous thy goodness
lavished all on me
yes I rest in thee beloved
know thy certainty of promise
and have made it mine

simply trusting thee Lord Jesus
i behold thee as thou art
and thy love, so pure, so changeless
satisfies my heart
satisfies its deepest longings
meets supplies its every need
compasseth me round with blessings
thine is love indeed

ever lift thy face upon me
as i work and wait for thee
resting ‘neath thy smile Lord Jesus
earth dark shadows flee
brightness of my Father’s glory
sunshine on my Father’s face
keep me ever trusting resting
fill me with thy grace
