driving home from my mom's group today i realized something…
i felt lonely.
after all that social activity in the morning, coming home to an empty house was discouraging and depressing. i used to covet those hours alone. now i find myself longing for something to fill those hours (and not just something to do…but rather something of significance).
with Hank's new position at his workplace, he's home more...which is a blessing! but with that decrease in hours comes a decrease in income. while i know the Lord will provide our every need, it does have a toll on rearranging our priorities on what and where we can spend said income.
that being said, i really feel that God is leading our family along this path. for the past few weeks, these two verses have been coming up in our lives over and over again…including in my children's wednesday evening program at church: Ephesians 3:20-21 "now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
these verses, i feel are becoming our life verse at this juncture. i'm sure God is preparing our hearts and home for something wonderful. i'm excited and nervous for what's in store, but i am also certain that God is bigger than anything i can imagine! as those verses above point out, now is the time to turn to God and know that He is able to do much more than i could ever possibly imagine…immeasurably more...beyond the beyond (Priscilla Shirer), with ALL His power, in it's fullness, that is at work within me (the Holy Spirit). wow! that just blows me away!
"our God is predictable in His character, but He is unpredictable in His activity." Priscilla Shirer
Psalm 37:4 "take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart."
every good and perfect gift is from God…and a good and perfect gift is in our future.
