I'm Dawn. Welcome to my blog! Here, I'm sharing life from the point of view of a flawed {but forgiven!} grace-filled creative.


So...take a deep breath & get comfortable. It is my hope that you'll find encouragement here. 

I am not God

I am not God

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
— Isaiah 55:8

There are times in my life when I experience discontent.  

I believe we can all relate; the unease typically stems from a prayer that eagerly awaits answering. Although I will have prayed about it and believe I have given it to God to handle on my behalf, my mind still circles around the thing that is not yet resolved.

And I hold on to it...even if only by a little.

I do not have to physically go to the alter and take back my prayer - I do this little by little in my head when impatience sprouts.  Once impatience has reached full maturity, I renege on my prayer all together and start 'fixin' the issue myself.  

Or so I think...

It is not until later that I realize my attempt to play God only slowed a faith gained by prayerfully waiting on Him.  When we deny Him the delight in carrying our burdens, we prevent ourselves from knowing Him more deeply and growing closer to Him more intimately.

There is only one God, and it is not me.

I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.
— Genesis 28:15
