I cannot believe the overwhelming desire I have right now to be in the center of God’s will for my life. I don’t know what it is lately, but I have just been taken over by a sense of passionate obedience to God’s Word and His direction for me and my family. I long for conformity to His character. I desire to be lost in His presence. I want to know Him more fully.
I feel like, for such a long time I’ve been learning, searching, serving, and giving… and all the while, yes, it has been “worth it.” But lately, I have realized a greater sense of God’s perfect plan for my life and I cannot wait to see what He’s going to do in me, through me, and around me tomorrow – and then the next day – and then the next.
Lately, I’ve felt more surrendered to His will. It’s like sitting on the porch of a cabin in the mountains and experiencing the serenity that His creation facilitates… but at the same time, I’m just so anxious to climb the mountain in front of me and take it for His name and for His glory. And then realizing that when I get to the top, I’ll see an entire range of mountains just ripe for the claiming. They are my mountains. No one can take them but me. God made them for me. And He has gone ahead of me to prepare the way. He knows the steps I’ll miss – He knows the limbs I’ll trip on – He knows the Rock I’ll rest on. And He’s committed to my spiritual success on this life journey.
I’ve been spending a LOT of time in His Word lately. It is overwhelming – the depth of His glorious truth, that is. I don’t think I’ll ever fully understand all of the truth that His eternal Word has to offer – but I want to try. I need it – I long for it.
Isaiah 66:2 –
I hope it’s okay for me to get vulnerable with you, blog. You don’t seem to mind what I write. I just had to get this out there.
– Undividedly I will teach Your truth.
