Being back at Cedarville is incredible. I love it here. And there is nothing better than living and feeling like you are EXACTLY where you're supposed to be. I'm overwhelmingly blessed. Not only with friends and people here, but the Fall Bible Conference that I'm required to attend twice a day this week. There's something especially divine about worship at CU and the messages are real, unsweetened reminders of the Christ we proclaim. I seriously couldn't be anywhere more full of truth, grace, and simplicity. We sang a song  at the conference one night and it struck me hard. The lines are solid, and the melody is pretty moving itself. So I thought I'd share what's been on repeat in my dorm room and mind all week. Meditate on Him this week. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit living and working inside of you. REACT to God's hand in your life. Be boldly humble and have confident hope, as Rob Tuner says. Don't be afraid to be still and HEAR. Work hard. Repent often. This is my prayer for this semester. These words yearn for Christ to be revealed, we deserve Hell and receive Grace. How insane is that. Sorry for the holy rant. I attempt to hold myself to these principles, as well. Hope this can speak to you, somehow.

'Show Us Christ'

Prepare our hearts, O God
Help us to receive 
Break the hard and stony ground 
Help our unbelief 
Plant Your Word down deep in us 
Cause it to bear fruit 
Open up our ears to hear 
Lead us in Your tr
Show us Christ, show us Christ 
O God, reveal Your glory 
Through the preaching of Your Word 
Until every heart confesses Christ is Lord 

Your Word is living light 
Upon our darkened eyes 
Guards us through temptations 
Makes the simple wise 
Your Word is food for famished ones 
Freedom for the slave 
Riches for the needy soul 
Come speak to us today

Where else can we go, Lord 
Where else can we go 
You have the words of eternal life.
