Meet Sarah Mae
“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
“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.”
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
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 (I’ll take it black), write, watch movies with my man, and homeschool my babes.
I’m the coauthor of Desperate – Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe (written with the lovely Sally Clarkson), author of Longing for Paris: One Woman’s Search for Joy, Beauty, and Adventure…Right Where She Is, and Having a Martha Home the Mary Way: 31 Days to Clean House and a Satisfied Soul. I also have the privilege of being a cohost with Amy Smoker of an event for moms called, A Night to Breathe, and a contributor to the DaySpring blog, (in)courage.
I write this blog to encourage and inspire women (mostly moms) to keep on and begin again. Life’s hard. We need each other.
“…encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.” Hebrews 3:13
