On your mark, get set…


Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thes. 5:16-16)


God’s will.

The answer to the heart cry, “What the heck am I doing here?”

The place where vision begins.


The very heart of God is that I should:

Rejoice always.

Re-joy. Remember. Rehash. Regurgitate. Relive. Renew. Re-determine every moment to see His goodness and reflect all the good that I see.

Pray continually.

Focus and purpose to give my thoughts back to the One who gave it all – my cries, my whoops and hollers, my moans, my questions… Fill my mind with conversation with Him.

Give thanks in all circumstances.

Wait at His feet until I know

KNOW what he’s already done for me,

KNOW that He will never leave me or forsake me,

KNOW that it is God – the Creator of heaven and earth – at work in me, and for me

KNOW that He is purposing good for me and not evil, working in me both to will and to do His good pleasure.

KNOW that He has my eternal back…

KNOW so deep and true that my tongue agrees with my heart and bubbles up in thanksgiving in all circumstances.

…This is God’s will.


Jesus, you know me – every part of me, and you love me just the same. Thank you for being simple in your instructions. Thank you for the knowledge, that with one step in your direction you run to greet me, to help me, to lavish your love and throw me a party. Thank you.
