Isaac and I are headed home to see our families in just a little bit and I am soooooo looking forward to that time. Time in the car with Isaac... time reading books by the fireplace... time eating great Southern food. Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. Fried Anything. Yum. I am looking forward to some time away from the business of life... the business that I allow to take over my days. Because I need to really focus on what matters. Not just for Christmas. Not just for this season of my life. But for the rest of my days. I want to remember the Grandness of what He has done for me.
I would say that this walk in my life is a difficult one. Because it's hard to learn to trust Him about the things that I don't understand. I had plans for my future, just like we all do, and He is calling me to something greater than anything I could have dreamed up on my own. And He is doing that to you as well. He has something so much bigger for us that we can fathom. Ephesians 3:14-21... love this passage: "... Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen."
I love this passage. And I am looking forward to spending time away from the world. I want to hunger and thirst for His Word. I want to believe that He is who He says He is and that I am who He says I am. And I want to believe that we are who He says we are. And even if the rest of the world thinks I am crazy for this love in my heart and the truth that I stand by, I will still love and I will still stand. Because every word that He speaks is true.
He is the reason for my breath in the morning. And He is the One calling me into something Glorious.
Hunger for the Word.
