Lord I believe, help my unbelief.

"Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you. Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it."

Isaiah 30:18-21

Welcome to SCORE CITY, USA. Every place you go here you'll think to yourself, score. Hence the name. Clever. I know. Today Jenna and I ventured to Dillon Falls, well we tried to venture to Benham Falls first. Only to find that the snow still existed. I know you thought I had given up the dream. However, it was stinkin' 73 degrees today!!! Glory.

The first beautiful stop. ugh. seriously. so wonderful. We sat here for a little bit not talking, but just listening to the raging "ness" of the river, I can't not think about the power of God when I'm sitting there and there's nothing else that I can hear, nothing else can really enter my mind, because I'm just in awe. I love it.
Jenna is more of an ocean girl. But she embraced my passion for the river and we continued on.
I'm not really sure what my thought process was here. I mean there for sure wasn't that much snow. But um, clearly....flip flops are probably not the smartest decision.
After the raging river, and the snow and the sneaky little side paths we came to the still "ness" of the hike, and God spoke. I was trying to explain to Jenna why I loved this place so much. And I couldn't really even put it into words. It was honestly just a deep passion, and I'm looking out and all I see is dead grass and trees with no leaves and everything for the most part is brown. But I know the potential that it has, I know that will be fruitful soon and even more beautiful soon.

And the thing is, I still love it just as much as when it's not.

And it was one of the most impacting moments ever, just remembering and understanding the deep affection that God has for me. It's just a passion that is unexplainable. I'm so freaking blessed.
