no turning back.

More and more I am realizing how much I need God. How much I need His love, His strength, and His grace He holds me together and quietly whispers into the depths of my heart when I feel alone. I will praise Him in the storm and thank Him when the thunder rolls, because I know that He is in control. Not me. I don't ever want it to be me. He is my ever present refuge when I don't have a place to stand.

I can't get over His love. It truly amazes me.
I'm so weak, unloveable, and imperfect, yet He still calls me His child.
I don't understand, but I am thankful.
I never want to let go of God. I want Him to be my everything.

Please, Lord, show me how.
"If none go with me, I still will follow.
No turning back. no turning back."
1 O LORD, You are my God; 
I will exalt You, I will give thanks to Your name; 
For You have worked wonders, 
Plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.
2 For You have made a city into a heap, 
A fortified city into a ruin; 
A palace of strangers is a city no more, 
It will never be rebuilt. 

3 Therefore a strong people will glorify You; 
Cities of ruthless nations will revere You. 

4 For You have been a defense for the helpless, 
A defense for the needy in his distress, 
A refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat; 
For the breath of the ruthless 
Is like a rain storm against a wall.
5 Like heat in drought, You subdue the uproar of aliens; 
Like heat by the shadow of a cloud, the song of the ruthless is silenced.

 6 The LORD of hosts will prepare a lavish banquet for all peoples on this mountain; A banquet of aged wine, choice pieces with marrow, And refined, aged wine. 

7 And on this mountain He will swallow up the covering which is over all peoples,
Even the veil which is 
stretched over all nations. 

8 He will swallow up death for all time,
And the Lord 
GOD will wipe tears away from all faces,
And He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth;
For the LORD has spoken. 

9 And it will be said in that day,
“Behold, this is our God for whom we have waited that He might save us. 
This is the LORD for whom we have waited;
Let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.”

{Isaiah 25:1-9}

I've got sunshine xox


  1. Oh Lexi, this is beautiful.
    I love the book of Isaiah- I think it may just be my favorite book in the entire Bible.
    I don't know why- probably because it is so eloquent, and powerful.
    I think I am going to quit reading numbers and fill my soul with Isaiah...
    Thanks for this.

  2. Totally what I needed to read tonight - I love you Lexi! Beautiful post :-D
