Happy New Year!!!
I am thrilled that 2010 is here with us. For the past week I have been anticipating its arrival. Normally, new beginnings make me a bit uneasy but God makes all things new and is calling me to forget the past and press on. I’m pressing on!
When I began this blog, I shared with you that the Lord had promised me to do a new thing in and through my life, this blog being one of them, but not all of it. I have been seeking the Lord through prayer, in His word and through godly council. All in all, I haven't heard from the Lord what is to me a clear answer. Not knowing what the Lord had planned for me was a bit scary and frustrating all at once. And though I still am uncertain as to what is His perfect will in a specific area, I believe that He is slowly walking me through it. And not knowing is ok.
As I wait on the Lord to give me a green light or a red light I find myself growing in trust. In my searching and seeking, in my calling out to Him I have drawn closer to Him and experienced Him drawing closer to me. Waiting is good. One thing He has made clear to me is that as I am still, He will perfect and prepare me for what is ahead, whatever that may be. Psalm 4:8 is how I feel: I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
On a different note. This past Tuesday, last year you could say lol, God opened my eyes to something so great that I could have never seen coming. Have you ever prayed for something for so long, that praying for it is just becomes routine and not heartfelt? For about 3 years now I have been praying for a very specific work to be done. With each passing day, my zeal was vanishing- I had forgotten who I serve! This week the Lord answered that prayer in the most bizarre way.
At a snail's pace I am understanding why God has me in this waiting process. All this to say that I am eager for what God has in store for me, for you this 2010. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-22)
If you are waiting on God, enjoy the waiting process. It is a beautiful place to be in. It is in that place of being still that we can know God for who He is- holy!
Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness;
He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
