Some thoughts on Easter and UK Basketball

2014_2015_kentucky_basketball_poster

I wrote a post a couple of years ago, Worth Dying For, about how awesome it is as an insecure person to rest in His love for me. At that time, someone read the title and told me, “that’s wrong. None of us are worth dying for. We are sinners deserving of judgment.” And that is so true.  We are sinners. None of us are worthy, but because He loves us, He deemed us worth dying for.  God, in His love, chose us even though we don’t deserve it.

And to me, that’s even better. His love is unconditional. It doesn’t rest on me or my performance in anyway. I could never earn it, and I don’t have to.

I live in KY where most of the state “bleeds blue.” You may not be a UK fan, but if you watch college basketball (and maybe even if you don’t), you’ve probably heard about this year’s team. They garnered national attention as they won game after game, reaching a 38-0 season.

They were undefeated. Perfect.

Until last night.

And now, just like that, it’s over. They are 38-1. As I scrolled through my Facebook feed this morning, I saw people jumping off the UK bandwagon left and right. Because they aren’t perfect anymore.

And since today is Easter Sunday, I got to pondering about the reason Jesus came to this earth. The reason he suffered a brutal death on the cross. And it’s kind of like that UK game last night. The loss will always come.

No matter how good we may try to be, there is enough sin in us to negate it all.  We could never be good enough. Because we can never be completely perfect.

I’ve had people in my life who “loved” me for me…but only when I’m lovable. They loved what I could give them, what I could do for them. They loved a talent I might have, my outward appearance, or a fun-loving attitude. They loved me on good days.

But, you see, I’m not perfect. And those things never last. I will let people down every time. And then, when I’m not so lovable anymore, they are gone.

But God’s love has absolutely nothing to do with me. It is unconditional.

He loves me. Not when I’m having a good day, or because I do x, y, and z, or because I look a certain way. But just because of who He is. And there is such comfort in that. Because He is unchanging. I’m so glad that his love and grace doesn’t rest on me or my performance!

I don’t have to try and earn His love, or be “good enough” because I know I know I never could. You never could.

But He loves us anyway.

It’s been quiet around here… {and why}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for supporting Serving Joyfully.

I just wanted to pop in and let you know that I’m still here, and share some of the reasons things have been quiet around here.

We Moved!

I shared a bit about that a few weeks ago, but we our family moved. We are still renting, but we’ve gone from a house in town to one that is out in the country and we are so excited about it. We still have a small yard (since our house is surrounded very close by the landlord’s cropland), and the house is even smaller than before and the rent is higher…but it’s out of town, and our whole family loves that fact. Still praying for the day when we can get in our own place, but for now it’s nice to have a new place to wait. We miss our neighbors, but love the quiet offered out here.

We’ve mostly settled in now, but still a few extra things here and there that take time.

Site Issues :(

I know some of you have noticed this because you’ve contacted me about it, but my site has been having some pretty serious issues, and I’ve been unable to fix it so far. Basically, I am having a LOT of downtime and there is no simple fix. The latest explanation I have received is that it could be malware, and this girl recommended that I would need to get a new host, do a manual transfer of everything on the site and *hope* that fixes it. I don’t have the skills required to do all this, nor the money involved with paying someone to do it. Every possible explanation is the same way–expensive and time-consuming to fix, at a time when I have neither extra funds for this or time.

So, the blog has been quiet. And, some of you may remember last year when I had intended to be a bit quieter around here anyway. I have felt the Lord leading me to focus more directly on serving Him and my family and less on this blog, and now seems to be the perfect time. I do wish that I could still have the blog fully functioning in the meantime, but there is little to be done about it right now. It’s a silly thing, but I would appreciate your prayers for direction and wisdom concerning this little blip of technology regarding this blog.

I pray this finds you all well, and that you’re keeping warm! We are having a lot of snow and cold temps here in KY.

Thriving Thursday 1/22/2015

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for supporting Serving Joyfully.

As some of you have noticed, I’ve been having intermittent problems with my site :( It has been very frustrating and I, unfortunately, havent had the time or energy to deal with it right now. What I can tell you is that if you keep trying, it will work, it’s a complex problem that I haven’t been able to figure out yet.

And part of the reason I haven’t been able to figure it out yet is because…

We’re Moving!

No, we aren’t getting our little dream house and homestead of our own just yet, it is another rental…but we are going to be in the country! It is an old farmhouse,  even smaller than the small house we live in now, but we are all so excited about it! We’ve had a trying time of it the last week or so working to get things scrubbed up (it was awful!), fixed up, etc. So many things have gone wrong that I feel like we should be in a slapstick comedy or something. But at the same time, the Lord has showered us with so many blessings! I hope I will be able to share some of the things with you soon, but for now I will leave you with a photo of what will be our new home.

10922157_10101209868276553_1542355134_n

We are pretty much finished with the cleaning and fixing up and now we just need to get all of our stuff packed up, moved in, and then get settled in the new place…so we’ll be in for a busy couple of weeks.

I also wanted to remind you to check out my brand new book, the Homemaker’s Quiet Time Journal.I haven’t been able to promote much due to all the busyness of real life, but I hope you will check it out–and share it with anyone who might be interested in a printable quiet time journal :) It is my prayer that this book will help women get the one thing that can truly change their lives–more time in God’s word!

Thriving Thursday 1/15/15

Well, Last week was New Year’s Day, and while I’m not much of a New Years Resolutions person, I did share one resolution that I think all Christians should make and keep.

I’ve been having some problems with my site, unfortunately, so I haven’t posted much this week. If you didn’t see these last week, though, I would love for you to check out these posts about the most important resolution for Christians, and my brand new product :)

One Resolution

I didn’t post much else this week because I was busy finishing up a brand new product that I am SUPER excited about!!! It is the Homemaker’s Quiet Time Journal, and I hope you’ll check it out :) It is my desire that this book would bless women in their walks with God.
