Thanksgiving greetings and salutations, dear friends! Today’s a special day. You’ll see more what I mean in a minute.
“In the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18 TPT
It’s been too long! I’ve been on a healing journey, but I think of you daily. I pray you haven’t forgotten this aging girl who has been more than a little pokey in letter-writing, lol!
I’m still here! Juggling a dozen plates and continually hoping they land with home-cooked meals on them! Due to dystonia, I’m still trying to teach my body what straight is. But aren’t we all?
The process is messy, but we’re invited to trust God with expectancy. Isn’t it amazing how God always directs us best? He knows what we need, and he brings it to pass. We’re his kids! His family!
On this winding, twisting journey with all its fears and cheers, he is right here, breathing his living Spirit, his Ruach, into our souls, resurrecting hope and life!
I need him beyond desperately, don’t you? I pant for him daily. I’m that deer beside the water, longing for him. Dependent on him. For every move and movement. May it be according to his will and way!
I believe he wants to remind us that he’s more than worthy of our sacrifice. Whatever he’s asked you to lay down for him, it’s nothing compared to his eternal glory waiting to be revealed in your life!
He only asks you to give him your best, so you can enjoy his best!
Let’s pause and remember who he is. Our all-sufficient one. Holy, holy, holy is his Name!
Lord, I lay it all down again. In fresh surrender, I relinquish my burdens and fears. Those ugly pests I wasn’t meant to carry. Take it, take, take it–because I sure can’t!
I lay down my dreams and desires. May they all line up with yours. If they don’t, would you please chuck them for me? If they do, please fulfill them for the world to see! May they know it’s only YOUR magnificence in me!
I’m amazed at your ways. You love to bless children with gifts! You feed the hungry, and I’m hungrier than a hippo. Hungry for more of you! Thank you that you always satisfy me!
Please bless those reading this who wonder, “when will this ever end?” Great Savior, let faith arise! May they lift their eyes to the King of glory and be undone by your soothing, healing presence. In Christ’s Name!
Oh me oh my, I didn’t want to stop praying there! I got caught in the flow of the current! I actually popped on here to talk about something wonderful God did, so you can rejoice with me!
