30 Days of Words (or 23ish if you are like me and getting a late start..)

I have been inspired by K Mac's Journey of Words, a September blog event where every post centers around a specific word significant to one’s life. Her blog is filled with beautiful, poetic, pithy writings. You know, the kind of writer that makes it seems so easy, you leave thinking you can sit down and write just as brilliantly. (A college literature class also had me convinced I could write like Kerouac...) Anyway, I loved the idea and the wonderful writings that accompanied the idea, so I will attempt to follow suit in my own meager way.

 Call my first one a stream of consciousness....

want |wont, wawnt| 
to wish, need, crave, demand, or desire

I want to be perfect
I want it to be okay that I am not

I want to spend at least one day not beating myself up
I want to remember who I am (Psalms 139:14)

I want to run through the fields of grace (Hebrews 12:1-2; 2 Corinthians 12:9)
I want to feast at the table (Psalms 23:5) 

I want to stand on the knowledge that whatever happens in this life
I. am. still. free. (Romans 8:34-39; Isaiah  53:5)

I love this!

I especially love the Bible verses that go along with.


Yes, I know what you mean about spending one day NOT beating yourself...we are so much harder on ourselves than we should be.

Thanks for joining in the fun. Words are just the best if you ask me!

I look forward to checking you out for the next 23!

I too like how you related your word, "want" to scripture...I have wants, but when I find myself in the Word, my worldly wants fade-
