Me and my love are sitting out on the back patio just enjoying the tolerable evening temps tonight...birdwatching, bunny watching, and breathing in the occassional breeze that happens to come our way.
It's been an amazing Sunday of discovery and revival in my heart.
I've been taking time, evaluating next steps and seeking God and His truth.
Life is short
Don't we hear that all the time and that phrase is used as an excuse and a justification for so many things, but it remains true.
Our days here on this earth are certainly numbered.
I was awakened gently this morning at 3 a.m.
I layed there frustrated at not being able to fall back to sleep and began to do what I usually do in these moments..........pray.
But God had other plans as He stirred me out of bed and to the studio where my bible and devotional were.
After offering up to Him honest and deep rooted things of the heart, I began to have clarity about many things concerning fear, confusion, shame, even guilt. We've all got issues of our own that, at inconvenient times, make themselves known.
After my precious time with Him, I made a pot of coffee, started bacon, and looked forward to going to worship service...in fact, I couldn't wait to get there.
As He does so faithfully, He provided answers, awareness, and gave direction.
So, I'm facing this week with new focus and a strength.
A new refreshed strength.
May God bless your week and renew your strength.
