night drapes around me like a heavy warm coat on a frosty morning
tranquilizing peace subdues the rushing thoughts of today
like a deep breath after touching the bottom of a pool.
heavyness seems to run off as water
and joy fills me quickly like the crest of roller coaster.
I am still again.
and full of my Fathers love..
and I forget why I didn’t remember sooner…
and remind myself to remember.
Thoughts seem to slow to a crawl, a stare into the night captures my face. My mind rests and my being sighs. A still moment blasts through the chaotic semblance of what I call life.
I am relieved. I am calmed. I am.
Paused and at peace, remindings to fight for these glimmers of lucidity.
To remember.. To reflect.. On His goodness and faithful love.
today is built to be beautiful
and tomorrow the same
today is beautiful
and tomorrow will be too
Before me is a path that seems forever long. But it’s days are counted. While I do not know how many bad days and good days there will be, this one thing I do know. God is faithful every single step along the way and is worthy of all my devotion.
I do feel quite inadequate when viewing the grandiose vision of where the Lord is leading me. And I suppose I should. Part of it makes me feel crazy, and on the other hand, it assures me that God in fact is the one leading.
To love, serve and build alongside ministries and churches. To partner with individuals, bringing my faith as a hand in their back, pushing them on saying “yes” to the call of God on their lives and reminding them.
Nothing brings more joy than to walk with friends and comrades through the difficult times and into the “ah ha” moments. Those brief and pivotal minutes of seeing clearly just long enough to mark your course out according to what the Lord is revealing and setting trail.
I think fondly of the trail blazers who I have been graced to cross paths with. Bob Reagan. The Buchanans. The Evrist. People who have on more than one occasion been the hand in my back.
If anyone is reading this, remember the path the Lord has had you on. Think back on your first days of knowing the Lord and how far He has taken you. Farther still, the journey has just began.
