The denial has left, reality hit hard, and I need to seek the quite spaces in the shadows. Too much lime-light for this one. Kevin and I will ‘regroup’. I will cherish time alone before God. And as energy returns, the grandkids will tumble onto the farm once again!
Sooner than later, this building will be only in our rear view mirror. For now, I need to focus on healing.
Let me share this morning’s words from Sarah Young’s book “Jesus Calling”:
“Follow Me one step at a time. That is all I require of you. In fact, that is the only way to move through this space/time world. You see huge mountains looming, and you start wondering how you’re going to scale those heights. Meanwhile, because you’re not looking where you’re going, you stumble on the easy path where I am leading you now. As I help you get back on your feet, you tell Me how worried you are about the cliffs up ahead. But you don’t know what will happen today, much less tomorrow. Our path may take an abrupt turn, leading you away from those mountains. There may be an easier way up the mountains than is visible from this distance. If I do lead you up the cliffs, I will equip you thoroughly for that strenuous climb. I will even give my angels charge over you, to preserve you in all your ways. Keep your mind on the present journey, enjoying My Presence. Walk by faith, not by sight, trusting Me to open up the way before you.”
So that’s what I plan to do… and I admit, it’s not easy. But entering a silent zone for a while will help my mind focus.
Thanks for following along on my first steps. The next ones will be quieter.
