friday five

1. “god is watching over you…she’ll be just fine cause i know He hears her when she cries.” –when she cries by britt nicole and go listen to defender by chris mcclarney and i surrender by kim walker (“i surrender because i trust you, god. all my hope is in you. your love makes it worth it all.”)

2. i’m throwing a big rock into the water and watching it sink. deeper. and deeper. until it’s covered by the mud and seaweed on the bottom. i don’t like seaweed. but i know i’ll have to keep on throwing this rock out there. again. and again. and again. but you know what? i think that’s partly why it’s called a living sacrifice…you have to know what you’re sacrificing in part and it’s not really a sacrifice unless it is something you care about.

3. in order to be like esther. you have to actually go through the waiting process.

4. and i still believe You’re the same yesterday, today and forever. you work ALL things out for good.

5. love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. it is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. it does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness but rejoices when right and truth prevail. love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]. and so faith, hope, love abide [faith–conviction and belief respecting man’s relation to God and divine things; hope–joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love–true affection for God and man, growing out of God’s love for and in us.]

okay, those turned a bit lengthy…but gimme your friday five. whatever’s on your heart 🙂

  1. I love when you post something about songs because I immediately have to listen to them and then fall in love with them and buy them 🙂 And I really like new music.
    I also keep throwing that rock to the middle and watching it sink, but I keep forgetting to untie the rope, and I find myself pulling it back in, day after day, and I’m still continuously surprised to find myself holding on to it again.

    • ohhhhh there we go. that’s why my rock keeps coming back. gotta cut off the string too now.
      i wish i could bring you to my church so that you could hear the defender song and the song that has the “i still believe you’re the same yesterday today and forever” line. they are fabulous. just not the same in the versions online.
      my wish list on itunes is ridiculous…and i am SO going to need to stock up my music library before coming out…i just use youtube now 🙂

  2. I feel like my 5 are so focused on where my flesh is at and not on where I should be with God…oh to be a girl.

    1. God’s way is always right even if it doesn’t seem right to man. It’s hard to visit SPU and have people ask me where I’m living this quarter and have to tell them “at home.. because I’m taking a quarter off.” I get a lot of disappointed looks. But I know God is in this. I need to know it with all of my heart and keep seeking him.

    2. I felt a bit lazy today but just the right kind where it’s relaxing but not unproductive. I don’t want to get into a habit of being lazy just because I’m not going to school. That is my biggest fear in all of this.

    3. My heart is all over the globe tonight and has been for a couple months. Trying to cling to God’s promise of peace when I rest in him, but my heart doesn’t like resting.

    4. I am always so dependent on anything that will give me momentary satisfaction. I wish nothing satisfied me except for God. I want nothing else to matter, but my flesh screams against it.

    5. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 1 Peter 1:20 — I’m loving this today. God knew he would have to make a sacrifice, but he created the world anyway. That’s how much he wants me.

    • 1. amen. god is always right. i need to remember that. even when it hurts. god is always right. even when i cry. god is always right. praying for you heart too…
      2. mmm, i’ll ask you how you’re doing with that in a few weeks 😉 praying for productivity!
      3. my heart is ALL over tonight as well. oh peace.
      4. sometimes i just want heaven…
      5. and he wants all of us. beautiful.

  3. Friday Five:
    1. Went to Japanese class and my sensei was so proud of me for knowning the rest of the alphabet. I gave my self a pat on the back for this one.
    2. I still have to work tomorrow. O.0
    3. Today one of my girls told me that I was beautiful. She ran into the classroom and was like Ms. Mallory you are so beautiful. This really made my day. Even when I don’t have a man telling me that I am beautiful, my little Japanese students think I am.
    4. Irish tea is like a cozy blanket for my soul.
    5. My feet stink from wearing my Toms.

    Ok so totally random but yah… that is about it.

      2. and you work hard 🙂
      3. awwww love that! and you are beautiful. i had one of my girlies at school today and she came up to me throughout the day and gave me like 5 hugs. even when i don’t have a man hugging me tight, i have my girlies hugging me and loving on me.
