a Melody in my Heart

I'm a simple girl saved by grace, captured by grace, and living by grace. I'm captivated by God's perfect love and I live by faith in light of God's great mercy for me. That's my life, bundled up in 2 sentences! Now that you know me, you should follow me. Looking for something?


Do you know that nothing you do in this life will ever matter, unless it is about loving God and loving the people he has made? - Francis Chan (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

God never intended for us to put off our happiness. We have a choice to make each and every day. We have to set our minds in the right direction. That’s why David said, “This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.” He was saying, “This is the day to be happy; not tomorrow, not when the weather clears up. Not next week, when I don’t have to work so hard. Not next month, when I make it through this difficult time.” No, choose to honor the Lord right now by choosing to enjoy your life. Get rid of the excuses and rejoice because this is the day that the Lord has made!
God’s love remains

Are you tired?

Well I sure am tired. Extremely extremely sleep-deprived tired. My-eyelids-are-heavier-than-the-moon tired. This-lecture-is-turning-into-multiple-on-and-off-naps tired. I-just-want-to-sprawl-out-on-any-flat-surface tired. But the only thing that keeps me going everyday, whether I’m tired or super hyper, is God’s strength. He keeps me breathing, and living. He tells me to come to Him, in my weariness, with my heavy burdens, and He will give me rest. And that is all I need to get through the day.
