Quiet you.


An old mentor of mine once told me, "I love how good the Lord is." And I often think of how right she was. He is good. Even when many things in our lives and all around us are not so good.

One of the good things He gives us is peace. My name, "Erin" means "Peace" and so I've always desired peace in my life, craved it. But somehow, the things around me in my life - my circumstances - sometimes seem anything but peaceful. Yet, I remember reading a verse years ago that taught me about peace. The peace that surpasses understanding, as the Bible says. It taught me about God's peace, the kind that wraps you up and chases away your fears, silents your anxiety, calms your beating heart. 


The Lord your God is with you,
    the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
    in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
    but will rejoice over you with singing.
-Zephaniah 3:17 

How beautiful. He is with you, friend. He is a might warrior, He can save you! He takes great delight in you. In Him there is forgiveness, second chances. He will quiet you with His love. He sings over you, in joy. 




Open your heart to this love today.
Willingly receive His peace.
Ask Him to sing over you,
to rejoice over you.

Because He is good. All the time.
And you are loved. Always.

Happy Sunday, friend.

  1. Erin. Struggling with whether or not to go back in the fall. My OCD towards school keeps getting in the way. I feel that I can't participate in church activities, focus on work, or even relax and read a book because that would hinder my college studies. I cant find balance. It's like I am chained to college and that's not how God intended us to live, right? To be honest, I want to focus on my blog, my 8-5 job (the mission field), my church, volunteering, and my fitness. After much thought and prayer, I feel led towards this. Are there any tips you can give to this girl wanting to truly pursue the career of being a vessel for my Lord and Savior?
    Did you go to college?
    Any advice on starting my very own blog geared towards being the vessel I have been called to be. I have a passion for writing & would love to pursue thi
