Bought a new (to me) turntable. Really excited! It’s a SOTA Moonbeam, I could never afford this new!

I’ve been thinking about this a lot today.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot today.

Also, as well as today resolved, it’s been a stressful day.

Glad it’s over.

It Is Well.

Today, I was confronted head on with God’s endless grace.  It was sobering, humbling, terrifying, and beautiful. Sobering, because today I was forced to see my brokenness in full view. Humbling and terrifying, because I now realize how fragile I can be, and how I need Christ on a minute by minute basis.

Beautiful? His grace was beautiful. Now, I didn’t do anything stupid today. But I almost did.  And when I realized my foolishness, He was right there in a way I’m not sure I ever experienced before.

Right now, I’m writing an arrangement of Horatio Spafford’s “It is well” for choir. I have had the words of that hymn spinning around in my head for a long time now:

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

Today, when I prayed in repentance, I could feel it.

Today, my Savior told me - IT. IS. WELL.

No guilt. No more shame.

Just forgiveness.

I’ve had worse. *thumbs up*

I love jazz.

Work out your own salvation with fear & trembling, for it is God who works in you both to will & to work for his good pleasure.

—Philippians 2:12-13
