What an amazing gift these months have been. Sure there have been cloudy days and a time or two of pulling out the compass to make sure we have stayed the course. There have been many lonely days (earthly speaking). We have been misunderstood and shunned at times by some - even some dear to us. But God has met us at every turn. We have seen small victories . . . and giant ones. We have been blessed by the confidence of true friends and new ones. We have found our roots deeper into the truths of Christ. And our fellowship with Him never sweeter. Our faith has grown, as has our grace. Our family never closer. Our marriage even better. Our resolve to bless the nations sharper - and our LOVE for our neighbors, deepened and renewed.
Do I know what tomorrow holds? No. Do I know who has already established me and who does know what tomorrow holds? YES! This is the joy, peace and confidence we have in Jesus Christ!
I came across this quote today and by sharing it I am in no way saying that I am here, but my desire is to be here.
God is most glorified in you when you are most satisfied in Him - in the midst of loss, not prosperity.~John PiperSuch a famous and familiar quote and in my next post I would like to talk about what he is saying in the video I was watching. But that is my goal! To glorify God with this life. That is also what I long for others . . .no matter where you live world-wide or how you find yourself today. Jesus Christ alone is enough to satisfy. Trust Him! It is SO worth it! I am not talking in stuff or things terms. But in joy, peace, fulfillment and purposeful living terms.
