—C.S. Lewis, Counting the Cost
Many thoughts race though my head tonight. It’s been a long day. I worked over 15 hours at Starbucks today. Kind of frustrated with a lot of things right now. I want this to be true:
a stranger with no hope;
Your kindness wakened me,
Awakened me, from my sleep
Your love it beckons deeply,
a call to come and die.
By grace now I will come
And take this life, take your life.
Sin has lost it’s power,
death has lost it’s sting.
From the grave you’ve risen
Into marvelous light I’m running,
Out of darkness, out of shame.
By the cross you are the truth,
You are the life, you are the way
My dead heart now is beating,
My deepest stains now clean.
Now I’m free. now I’m free!
Lift my hands and spin around,
See the light that i have found.
Oh the marvelous light
It’s not true… At least not yet. I really need to get alone right now and just meditate on who God is, His grace and the passion behind His love.
Also,pray for me financially. Our tip rate was down really bad this week and that really screwed me over financially… I really depend on the tips being good– and with sales being up, even at a record high, tips should have been over $2/hr. But the tip rate was a low of $1.38/hr. I only worked 15 hours last week, so I took home about $20 in tips. I am used to taking home over $50 a week… Needless to say, I am needing an additional $30 for bills… Actually a heck more than $30… Could $100 fall from the heavens? PLEASE! I need sleep. Tomorrow is going to be a great day. I can feel it.
