… the thoughts from a life in the Son-shine State


Yesterday I blogged about purposeless feats, like No-Shave November (which I participated in). Going with the theme from yesterday’s blog, but changing gears, I am going to share about purposeful things. [Note: sorry about the titles “Let It Grow…” and “Here We Go…”. I have been listening to a lot of Christmas music, and the song “Let It Snow” has been in my head.]

It is now official.

December 1st is upon us, and we are no longer serving at Grace Assembly of God. It is sort or a surreal feeling, yet there is a natural transition taking place. As we share with others what the Lord is doing in our lives, it seems right in my heart that we are exactly where God wants us, doing what He has created us to do. Everything that we have experienced, learned, and gained has lead us up to this point in our lives.

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
(Psalm 139:13-16)

God knows us better than anyone, and He has allowed us all to live today, for such a time as this (Esther 4:24). People look at the world and get discouraged and are filled with fear. But, it really is exciting! We are carriers of the Good News! Jesus said–

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.
(John 16:33)

I am so thankful to the Lord… we are so blessed, beyond measure, to be a part of this work.

So, here we go!

Whoa…
