god's almighty timing

I'm going to school for physical therapy. I am infatuated&intrigued by photography and traveling, yet I have done very little traveling {out of the country only a few times--Canada} and am a complete novice at photo taking. I want to learn so bad, and am basically teaching myself through trial and error.

basically, i have so many interests going on in me that it is hard to figure out which one i should focus on for now. however, to solve this problem, i can just go to God right? of course! but as per usual, with everything else going on {school, work...} it is hard. i am slowly but surely making more time for God, and yet still just a wee-bit impatient for answers when i ask qu
estions. but the lord is faithful.. and he will let me know.

he has already let me know that the "timing" was wrong when two of my friends,sister&i wanted to plan a trip to Ireland! it was going to be my&amanda's first trip over seas. our friend lizzy went to england and our other friend nancy has been to ireland,scotland,italy,spain,alaska {nancy, if you are reading this and i missed anything, let me know! lol} we were so excited. but from the get-go i knew that i needed to seek God out for his wisdom and timing. i would pray for discernment and that he would let us know if we should continue to pursue this trip any more or wait for a later date. and surely enough, he had let us know.

so right now, i'm praying again-- Lord, please let us know if 'next' august is your timing. i want to go forth in the things that are of your timing. i pray for finances and peace in this situation. and Lord let me know that i am on the right track with you. i love you.

not the greatest picture---but a reminder for us to continue to pray about this desire in our hearts.

a better way

If you haven't listened to any of Jason Upton's prophetic music.... let me just say that you should. the lyrics, the passion, the yearning to become closer to our father are immensely powerful. the lord is using him, as well as other worshipers and singers like Misty Edwards and Rick Pino to bring forth truth and the word of God to our lives. developing a certain level of intimacy&relationship with Jesus, our best friend, is so important.

I was listening to jason's open up the earth (disc 2) cd and the fourth track a better way is simply reaching the inner parts of me. it is true, Jesus is SHOWING US A BETTER WAY! he is alive, living, in us. everyday... when we read the word, pray, talk with those that encourage us; he is showing us how to become carriers of his word and his desires. he died for us and rose again!

seek the father. seek your father. we are his sons and daughters.

come to him. don't be afraid. he wants you to run to his arms and be close with him.

luke 11:5-10 and he said to them, "which of you shall have a friend, and go to him at midnight and say to him, 'friend, lend me three loaves;

'for a friend of mine has come to me on his journey, and i have nothing to set before him';

"and he will answer from within and say, 'do not trouble me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; i cannot rise and give to you'?

"i say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs.

so i say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. for everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened."

i would have given you a youtube video on this of the song, but unfortunately i couldn't find the song as a video. it is on itunes however. thanks for reading.

"... cry out from the broken us a better way, we're crying out, crying out, please show us a better way...theres gotta be a better way... break the chains, break the chains, break break break the chains!... show us the better way...walking with you father God, walking with you father God..." ~jason upton

hello everyone! I am very excited about this whole blogging thing. for a few days now I have been wanting to do more---sharing photos, my thoughts (sorta like a journal), sharing the word of God if he touches my heart at a particular time.

I don't really have an agenda with this. if something comes up, I'd like to feel free to openly express what is on my heart!

burningDesire is a name I'm using for this because in the past year I have been learning more about Jesus, learning to let him into my life, do less of what i want to do and more of what he "desires" for me.

hopefully there will be more to come, I just don't know how soon. I will try to keep on top of things, but as you will find out, I am very new to this. please have patience with me.

good night for now, and may the Lord bless you in your dreams!
