Mabey Memories

The desire of my heart is to become the person God dreams of and share those dreams with others; to unleash personal and corporate creativiy within the church, overflowing it with passion and freedom while searching for the face and character of God.

From the Imperfect

When I admit to the core of my being that my performance will never measure up to God's standard, then I can quit trying to make myself good enough and concentrate instead on having a relationship with him. Everything- absolutely everything- from my tendency to try be "perfect" to why the bees won't leave my NEW HOUSE alone- is acceptable to talk to him about. And everything - absolutley everything - is reason to give him thanks and praise!

A relationship based on love for who I am and grace in spite of what I do causes me to melt in gratitude, humility, and tenderness. When I know that God looks beyond my performance to the woman he loves, I can't help but to sink into his embrace, recognizing yet again that it is this for which I thirst.
