Good Monday morning friends.
I’m sitting here, in my pj’s, with a cup of coffee in hand, worship playing, candle lit, babies sleeping, and it’s RAINING outside my window. Thank you God for rain! I just wanted to say thank you all for your response to my blog post this weekend, (on my heart). I genuinely felt your prayers and love and am so thankful. If anything, I learned that we are NOT alone in our struggles. Why do we try to act like we have it all together? [I’m not saying we all need to spill our junk online….] but I felt the urge to be transparent and real and I’m glad I did, because I know God always works in people through that. Thank you for opening up your hearts to me too. I just responded to all the comments on my post, so if you haven’t – go back and read them. I love this community we are in that can encourage each other, pray for each other, be real to each other, and just walk this road together. I emailed a few good friends before I posted this blog [I didn’t have the guts yet to put it ” out there” yet] and I think just writing it down and “saying it out loud” if you will just brought it OUT OF THE DARK where the enemy couldn’t lie to me anymore. I brought it to the light, I called to the Lord and He set me free!
Jesus Calling [this was very right on this weekend]
Keep walking with Me along the path I have chosen for you. Your desire to live close to Me is a delight to My heart. I could instantly grant you the spiritual riches you desire, but that is not My way for you. Together we will forge a pathway up the high mountain. The journey is arduous at times, and you are weak. Someday you will dance light-footed on the high peaks; but for now, your walk is often plodding and heavy. All I require of you is to take the next step, clinging to My hand for strength and direction. Though the path is difficult and the scenery dull at the moment, there are sparkling surprises just around the bend. Stay on the path I have selected for you. It is truly the path of Life.
If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lordupholds him with his hand.
though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.
You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
—Psalm 16:11 nkjv
