Here, behind a cup

hiding

A comment I left at Heather's the other day,

... I don't know how to word my spiritual journey and seeking on my blog. I try and it doesn't come out the right way but I am thirsting. I am parched. I need renewal and restoration. I hate that I equate my inabilities and physical & emotional exhaustion to my children, when it is me and my neglected soul.

  1. I know time to read is hard to come by--but I've just started reading Crazy Love by Francis Chan, and it is such a refreshing book. If you have the chance--check it out.

  2. AMEN! Know you are not alone on the journey in the desert. I know I am thirsting every day and wanting it to come to an end (and I know that for me, right now, that is a key part of getting out of the desert). I pray we see the other end soon.

  3. beautiful worded, steph. at least you know renewal and restoration is needed....sometimes that is the hard part to come to terms with.

    and yes, Crazy Love is an awesome book!

  4. I feel you.


    And rather than the usual poetic bits...I will say ditto.


    "Ditto."

  5. I have enough to say for an entire post, but I won't weigh down your comment box like that.

    I know. I'll just say that. I know.

  6. Steph, that really stuck a chord with me. I've been feeling the same way for a long time, and don't even know where to begin! I hope our journeys are headed in the right direction :)

  7. I hear you girl!

    I pray that in those little moments of stillness, when the Lord leads you beside quiet waters, you will be able to drink deeply.

  8. It doesn't really matter what you have to say that boy behind that cup is so cute!!! I am so glad I have four of my own, who are in a frenzy of lego at this instant but will need food any minute, because otherwise I would covet yours!!!

  11. I love, love love that you blogged this!!

    My cup has been REALLY empty lately too. It's something I've been planning to blog about. Although my blog time for the last few weeks has basically poofed.

    Hang in there and please keep blogging about your journey because we're all there!

  12. Sometimes it is the hardest thing ever to do what is best. But why?

  13. I've been there. This Summer has seen a spiritual awakening in me, and His purpose has been slowly revealed to me, so I'm feeling pretty filled up... but I've so been where you are right now.

  14. I hear that. He will see you on your journey, and He is always there to hold your hand. All you need to do is look deep inside and call out to Him in honesty.

  15. So true for me right now, too. I hope you find the renewal and restoration your soul needs.
    (Also, was that taken at wings etc?)

  16. I get this. I so get this.

    As always, you aren't alone.

  17. You are not alone Steph. I'm seeking, too. I keep asking Jesus for "more of Him." I'm going through this drought and looking for a purpose in it, but I think the purpose is that we should always have a hunger. That we should drain ourselves daily--b/c that means we are giving of ourselves--but we should always yearn to "fill our cups" back up. It's a constant cycle.

    As always--I love your blog! It gets me to think.

  19. Thank you so much for sharing this with us Steph. It really meant a lot to me as I find myself in a similar desert. You say things so eloquently and they hit right on mark.
