“Alleluia, He has found me, the One my soul so long has craved. Jesus satisfies all my longings; with His blood I now am saved.” -From the hymn, “Satisfied,” by Clara Tear Williams
Hello and welcome!
“When I write about what I believe and how I should live, it sounds neat and orderly. When I try to live it out, all hell breaks loose.” Philip Yancey
It’s so true, about life and living and it all just breaking loose. Nothing is tied up neat in this life, not for me, not for anyone. As you read my blog – my words – keep that quote in mind, would you please? But also know this: I’m seeking God’s face, and I am pursuing the crucified life.
“The crucified life is a life absolutely committed to following after Christ Jesus. To be more like Him. To think like Him. To act like Him. To love like Him. The whole essence of spiritual perfection has everything to do with Jesus Christ. Not with rules and regulations. Not with how we dress or what we do or do not do. We are not to look like each other; rather, we are to look like Christ.” -A.W. Tozer, The Crucified Life
“Jesus said whatever you do to the least of these my brothers you’ve done it to me. And this is what I’ve come to think. That if I want to identify fully with Jesus Christ, who I claim to be my Savior and Lord, the best way that I can do that is to identify with the poor. This I know will go against the teachings of all the popular evangelical preachers. But they’re just wrong. They’re not bad, they’re just wrong. Christianity is not about building an absolutely secure little niche in the world where you can live with your perfect little wife and your perfect little children in a beautiful little house where you have no gays or minority groups anywhere near you. Christianity is about learning to love like Jesus loved and Jesus loved the poor and Jesus loved the broken…” -Rich Mullens
Now where were we?
I’m Sarah Mae, a woman saved and loved by Jesus Christ. Because oh my yes, how I was lost and in need of some saving. And I still need saving, every day, because I am so fully human, so breakable, and so mess-up prone. I am also perfect according to heaven because of Jesus, so I walk free.
I love to read, drink coffee, smell candles, write, watch movies with my man, and homeschool my babes.
I’ve written a few eBooks, as well as a traditionally published book for moms called, Desperate – Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe (written with the lovely Sally Clarkson). I also have the privilege of being a co-founder and co-host of the women’s social media conference, Allume.
