Mosaic (Jul 5)



After rainy, windy days start our time at the lake, the morning arrives where the lake shines glassy and I eagerly escape the cabin to get my paddle board.


The sun inches above the tree line, to the soundtrack of crows, warblers and the rhythmic swish of my paddle. The lake is mine. Not another soul in sight—not even a fishing boat.


I take in my surroundings with a heart full of gratitude and worship, I think, "this is perfect, there's nothing better than this."


Titus 2:13 reminds me of a greater anticipation, a more beautiful sight to behold, a moment we long for and cling to. We're "waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ." My soul rests today in the wonder of the Creator, the comfort of his presence even as my board coasts along the water. But this peace I feel, the contentedness will be exceeded when all things are made new again, when all is turned right at the return of Christ.


This truth is a gift. My perspective on life and work refreshed in this time away from the hustle and bustle. Because in this I'm reminded of my purpose, to turn away from ungodliness and eagerly pursue the good works he's prepared for me to do.


Resting in grace and ready to do good. All for his glory and for the good of others.

On my Shelf

  • I was able to finish Honour (review to come this week) and Practicing the Way. And I read my first steampunk novel, from an author I'd read before and saw this in someone's favourite duologies list. Our library had the first, but not the second book...so now I'm a little hooped.



In Articles 

I think you'll appreciate this article entwined with the story of a Zimbabwean missionary."So, carry on, dear sojourner and farmer. Keep sowing seeds and entrusting God with the increase, for his living and abiding Word never returns to him empty—even when it seems at first to go up in smoke."

Rest reminds us to rely on God. In our busyness we're prone to pride. Here's how the Sabbath bolsters our humility.


A prayer, a confession, a plea for grace.
