I don't know where to begin! I have so many good ideas, thoughts and plans whirling around in my head right now. I came home yesterday from the "She Speaks" Conference that was held in Concord North Carolina, and I need a few days to process all that I heard. The most important thread of information that every speaker made perfectly clear is that Jesus is Lord! There are no celebrities or famous christians. We are all the same.

This means a lot coming from well-known names like Chrystal Evans Hurst, and Liz Curtis Higgs.What they all had in common was that it is all about the Kingdom of God, not our kingdoms, not our plans but the plans that He established from the beginning of time. What a beautiful truth! This bring peace to me, and to you too, I hope. He already knows what will happen in our lives today, tomorrow and the next. Knowing that He loves me, and has my best interests at the center of His will for me brings calm, joy, and rest.

I do not call my blog whole hearted lady because I think I have everything all together. No, just the opposite. It is not me, but Jesus that pens these words. I have nothing to give anyone that will bless them or give them peace, but it is only because I follow close behind my Savior that you would ever want to read a thing that I write.

Striving ceases at the foot of the cross. Mercy flows as a continuous river. Love pours down as a scarlet stream, never loosing it redemptive ability. We fall down, we lay our crowns at the feet of Jesus. {Chris Tomlin, We Fall Down} He is always there- with arms outstretched, ready for us to enter. What was He thinking! Allowing the throng to take Him to the cross? He was thinking of you and me.Why? Why would He do this? We were the ones who needed Him to take our place. He calls us His Beloved.
