milking stool ministry: john 10 & 11

I loved the SOAP notes. Again. I love the structure while the rest of my life is so random and fun and spontaneous under the beauty of the summer sun. I'm hoping you loved the depth that comes with it too... We'll stick with those for the next week for John 12 & 13.

The verse of the week: 
"The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. 
He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out." 
-John 10:3

I pray this week that you can feel Him calling you by name while you're in the midst of life. Notice the way in which He calls out to you in dearness, out of love, with caring. Be encouraged in that the God who created the universe, who knit together every single once of us specifically and carefully, knows you by your very name. 

Encouragement by the cup for ya'll: 

The lyric: He is jealous for me. Our God, jealous for us. (David Crowder Band)

Joy as a strength. Not only a fruit of the Spirit, but as a muscle, a stronghold. (The Quiet Place)

Spoken word melts my heart. Especially when it talks about sheep. (Nick Vitellaro)

Ya'll know my love for a drink while you study. This lemon basil tea is just that. (Naptime Diaries)


  1. Love this post! and that David Crowder song kills me everytime.

  2. Wow, I'm really taken back by this incredible idea of yours to share scripture in this way. This is really touching and beautiful - I just love your spirit! xo

  3. Oh Allie thank you! I'm beyond flattered. Which sort of leaves me speechless and blushing

  4. DOESN'T IT? I can't get enough of it. Especially the thought that He is jealous for me. WAIT, HE IS?


Feel free to share with me... In fact, your words do more for me than mine for you.
