Camping Out

An invitation was extended.

I accepted…not knowing where I would land.

Then it hit me- out of the blue. Tucked right in there in Romans Chapter 8.

How did I ever miss these little nuggets before? Could it be I am too wrapped up in me to see He?


I am by default, a worrier and a what-iffer. I wrap myself up in the unknown. I worry about tomorrow and its not even here yet. I doubt his goodness some days and then I feel shame for feeling that way. The year of Fear-less has been molding me….has been good for me. But I am still a work in progress. I suppose that I am not the only one who feels that way. Feeling like you are on an island and you need to walk through the jungle alone. His word tells me I am not alone…He promises to never leave me or forsake me. However, there was one thing I missed…one thing I overlooked. That not only is He with me but He is praying for me. As if, dying on a cross was not enough to prove His love. His love for me did not end with His sacrifice on the cross. It continues today, tomorrow, forever. To realize He loves me enough despite my wretchedness to sit and pray me through each and every day…is overwhelming. So overwhelming that I must sit some more.


Christ Jesus is at the right hand of God and is also praying for us. ~ Romans 8:34

I am camping out in Romans 8:31-39 until at least Sunday (when my 7 days ends). However, I might just stay for an extended visit.

Funny how standing still opens up the heart to actually hear.

Crazy how we can see these things, and not see them at all. And then, reading along, reading along, reading along, and BAM!

Yeah. He prays for us. Doesn't roll His eyes at us. He prays for us.

Takes my breath away. Love this, Julie. Can't wait.

Why is it I always think I am probably getting an eye roll? I guess because in my human mind I cannot fathom just how deep and wide his love is for me. I always need reminding.
