there are so many things i want to do and yet i become my biggest stumbling block...
...you don't have time
...the finances are there right now
...what if you fail and everyone knows you failed
...i don't even know what the next 7 steps should be to get from "here" to "there"
...what do i really have to offer
i don't like to struggle, to be without vision and answers, whirling thoughts create a vortex of unknowns into an ache
He is doing something in me.... i desire to do great things for Him and that very desire is from Him to begin with
but which "great" thing should be the focus? where would you have me look, Lord?
so His Word falls open before me and tells me to look to only Him, serve only Him... devotion and obedience brings blessing and wisdom and protection...
i continue to commit His word to my heart. the one and only commitment i've planted myself upon for this new year.... Philippians, the whole book, commit to memory so that His unspeakable joys and love, a whole book-ful will grow and blossom within this life of mine devoted to His
it's a start. a wonderful one, excitement abounds!!
but He has more, much more. still listening and seeking so i can stay on His path, so His righteousness blankets me against the stumbling blocks...
i pray this first month of the year has you seeking and yearning for His direction, this journey of faith and following Christ into 2011 together in this small community.... Lord, let your grace flow and overwhelm me Jesus with your Joy and Love, that all be for your Glory
feel free to open up and share where the Lord is taking you this year and how i might join you in praying for direction and favor...
oh, yes! i crave and need His favor! presently and for the narrow path ahead of me... don't we all
be blessed, dear one!
