[“Where are we going?” She asked.
“Follow me and you will see” He replied.
She closed her eyes as she placed her hand in His and felt the warmth of the sunlight on her face. After all, He had never led her astray before, so what better time to trust than now?]
I wrote this back in 2008 when God was leading me to leave Florida after 16 years to move to Kentucky. And now I am reminded of it as He asks me to trust again. Only this time He is holding my hand as I have to trust where he is leading Derek. God has been more clear than I have ever heard in the fact that Derek needs to go to Haiti for 3 months to do medical mission work. He has Also been clear in the fact that I need to remain here and not be a part of this adventure. The only way to see where this path leads is to trust and to follow, so just like 5 years ago, I find myself saying “what better time to trust than now?
“you are not the light of my life. making you happy isn’t my greatest dream. your smile isn’t all i live for. I’ve got my own stuff going on. But you’re strange and fascinating and I’ve never met anyone like you. I want to give you everything. Just to see what you would do with it”
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. -Romans 15:13
Rest, Lord, I need your rest. How beautiful and tantalizing is the thought of being filled with all joy and peace? Of overflowing with hope as I trust in you? I don’t want to be weary any longer. Please bring your renewed sunshine and hope into my life.
It’s been almost three weeks since Buttons passed away and I miss him so much. Life just isn’t the same without my little Wiener Pig always underfoot and snuggling in my lap.
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” -Revelation 21:4
I know there is a lot of debate about animals in heaven, but I find it hard to believe my Father would prepare a place for me that didn’t have my Buttons Boy.
“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
Some days are absolutely perfect. For me, today was one of those days. I just wanted to dance and sing (actually, I did dance and sing) as I remembered this verse and thanked the Lord as I rejoiced in this perfect day that he made. But then I wondered about tomorrow. Would tomorrow be another perfect day? Or would it feel more like yesterday (which was not bad but not what I would consider “perfect”) did? And if tomorrow is more like yesterday than today (are you confused yet?) will I still dance and sing and praise the Lord for it? And if tomorrow is horrible, what will I do then? Probably whine, cry and wallow - no rejoicing there. But from this day onward, I want to rejoice and be glad no matter what the circumstances, because every day is a perfect gift from the Lord.
