"Those who wait on the Lord...shall walk and not faint." —Isaiah 40:31

There is no thrill for us in walking, yet it is the test for all of our steady and enduring qualities. To "walk and not faint" is the highest stretch possible as a measure of strength. The word walk is used in the Bible to express the character of a person...there is nothing abstract or obscure in the Bible; everything is vivid and real. God does not say, "Be spiritual," but He says, "Walk before Me..."

At critical moments in our lives it is necessary to ask God for guidance, but it should be unnecessary to be constantly saying, "Oh, Lord, direct me in this, and in that." Of course He will, and in fact, He is doing it already! If our everyday decisions are not according to His will, He will press through them, bringing restraint to our spirit. Then we must be quiet and wait for the direction of His presence.

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, 20 July


So the goal is to always be sensitive and obedient to those little daily presses and restraints. Then walking is easier if I don't resist or ignore...

jcobleigh and I have a lot things in our relationship that are easy; easier than I expected a relationship to be. We're also discovering where we have difficulty. As much as the struggle is hard, we're both looking for ways to compromise, to change, to accommodate. I like how even when we're looking across an impasse at each other, he'll say, "I love you," just to remind me that while this is a difficulty, yes, even a frustration...it does not threaten the Important Things. I like how I am reminded, too, to say and show that I love him, even when I'm feeling helpless or tired or hurt.

I have great confidence that we'll be better lovers/friends in twenty years than we are now. :)

you're actually sappy in love...ew
this is using red hearts and a goth girl to much better advantage and in a highly appropriate away. it's all about delivery!
Granted. Okay.

But I *did* feel loved. It's not my fault that the goth-girl creator couldn't find a better emoticon.
no no no
don't blame the emoticon maker
well not too much
how could she anticipate having someone using the goth-girl and using love..she probably put it as a joke...
hmm...
i think she should have used the sick goth-girl icon!!!
except that I'm not turning into a blonde when I feel loved! :)
