It seems that with the change of seasons, there is a need to re-organize and clean around my house. But there is something different about the process this year. I can't quiet explain, but my soul feels restless and unwilling to settle for "the usual".
I have been on a very long journey trying to evaluate what is really worth holding onto and pursuing in my life from every angle. I'm believe that I'm ready to soar past the dreaming stage and move up to the living stage of life. However, I have to keep reminding myself that I have to wait on Daddy's timing to bring things together "for my good, and His glory". That is the hard part. Waiting.
I strongly sense that He wants me to "turn from this mountain and move". He promised that He would make all things new again. With Him, everything is new and in the today for our tomorrow. I've been having a lot of conversations with Daddy lately. It seems that I'm easily overwhelmed these days. He has shown me that I'm trying to hold my yesterdays while "dreaming" of my tomorrows. Something has to go for something else to arrive.
So, while I wait, I will sing a New Song for it is the sacrifice of true heart felt praise that He most desires and that is the very least I can do for Him after all He has done for me and mine.
He is amazing isn't He? After all we have done, and He is still here with wide open arms to forgive and love. I want to be like that and yet seem to be so far from it. Just as my Associate Pastor said to husband Mark and I in church picnic conversation this past weekend, His children are just "walking on grace". Think about that one for a moment.
May you have a lit up, peaceful, joyful day Girls.
