"We’re determined to discover. All that You have hidden for us. Along the way. We’re getting there. And Your presence is the promise. There is nothing that can stop us. We’re on our way. We’ve tasted of Your goodness. We know that You are for us. We can hear the sound of Heaven cheer us on." -Steffany Gretzinger
"In my time I’ve seen somethings. People come and people go. I’ve seen the colors autumn brings, and how winter rain turns into snow. But this know for sure, though seasons change, I must endure. For You promised You’d be there when seasons change. The fire of my soul. Though this house with time grows old, will remain as long as I can feel You abiding in me. For You promised You’d be there. It’s good to know that You still care."
Lately I’ve been thinking about who I want to love, and how I want to love, and why I want to love the way I want to love, and what I need to learn to love that way, and who I need to become to become the kind of love I want to be…….and when I break it all down, when I whittle it into a single breath, it essentially comes out like this: Before I die, I want to be somebody’s favorite hiding place, the place they can put everything they know they need to survive, every secret, every solitude, every nervous prayer, and be absolutely certain I will keep it safe. I will keep it safe.
"Come out of hiding your safe here with Me. There’s no need to cover what I already see. You’ve got your reasons, but I hold your peace. You’ve been on lockdown, and I hold the keys." -Steffany Gretzinger
