Lord, help me truly see...

"You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore." Psalm 16.11

i have been struggling lately with blogging because every time i think, "oh, that was a fun time, i should blog about that!" i end up realizing that yeah, it was fun but is it worth blogging? do people care? and yes i know many of you would say, "yes amy, we care about the little snippets of your life don't stop." but i say to you: 

i want my life to show something; not the fun little parties, not the annoying happenings at work, not even the weird things my dog does or how many times pete has been stung by bees this summer. those are all important and i value all the people who are involved, but i want what i say and write to be something that shows God to others.

i am challenged this year with teaching my students what a "christian worldview" is (which is another post entirely.) i want them to understand that as we study history we are studying God's plan to redeem us to Himself and the fact that history declares God's glory. how can i teach them those things if i often struggle remembering that myself. i want my life to declare God's glory (i know you would maybe comeback with an encouraging statement like, "oh but amy, it does most times." you are my friends and you want to help me feel better.) this is not a pity party of myself, but a realization that i am not deliberate enough in my love of God. 

i truly want to see God in my daily life. i want Him to be so alive that whatever i say and write on here will reflect that. i need to give up MY worldview for not just a christian worldview but for GOD's view. i want to live, speak, and see the world as He wants me to. i also pray you will find encouragement through my blog, more than it has been lately. love you all

Got your message on my blog so I thought I'd check yours out! We totally need to have you guys over to check out the new and put together house. I feel like we should hang out more, seeing as we got married on the same day at the same place and our husbands work at the same place. Do we have parallel lives or what? Let's make a plan!
