It’s interesting how one may experience a paradigm shift- even after they believe they may have reached the ultimate realization of recognizable status. They have matured to the point of where identity of self has been achieved, and contentment received in it’s highest form. Knowing who one belongs to, those important to them as the ones to uplift highly, for where to place efforts, life, love, and ambition. Those have been locked down. Heightened desire is known and defined so precisely, that there does not really seem to be room for any change, because comfort and knowing is set.
It’s interesting when you delve into the Word. More and more, your desire to devour the living Word and discuss it with those around you seems to arise. Stirring hungrily within yourself as you find questions and curiosities- wanting to ask it to those close to you, also hoping to stir curiosity and excitement in them. For what greater joy is there then to get to the root of our Father. What He stands for, what His will is for us, and why we are to live out a purpose that aligns with His.
It’s been pretty mind-blowing the types of intentional conversations I have had over the past month. I guess this is God’s grace at it’s finest. Speaking volumes when I thought there could not have been more that could have been filled. His coincidence and timing will always remain perfect.
Maybe it’s just the beauty of Him. He has managed to show me how He continually provides; He listens to the smallest of cries and words. When you feel you cannot express it in words, He leans even closer and hears what your heart beats for. Thank-you God that we can willingly place our hearts up for circumcision, and allow you to become that which flows through the cracks and mends even the deepest of scars. You hold us in the palm of your hands and allow us to be loved, even when we feel undeserving or cannot comprehend your love that is never-ending, reckless, and all-consuming.
I manage to stumble upon the randomest of books. Being an individual that hadn’t ever really read books in their entirety, except for maybe Ruth- and that was moreso because of it’s length and relational perspective of a woman that yearns for God’s heart: Ecclesiastes and 1 John jumped at me out of nowhere. But the words, they leave deep impressions upon me and push me to question why do we decide to pursue God? His promises to us of a life eternal, with Him by our side. 1 John 3:19-24
19 This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence: 20 If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 21 Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God 22 and receive from him anything we ask,because we keep his commands and do what pleases him. 23 And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. 24 The one who keeps God’s commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
Thank-you for the efforts and time you place, through which you overflow into each of our hearts. Thank-you for your heart in wanting to seek Him first, and to support those whom also yearn to grow closer. Your support and love for Him comes first and foremost in most of the decisions you make- I believe. How maturity can come by placing His desires first, and then from His commands flows all of your choices. I hope that as you go through life, you continually place Him at the core of your life. For I believe that ultimate love and unconditional blessings will place themselves in your path to be touched and discovered, with His and your love. Though the times may become tougher to endure, for certain- you will overcome them and become someone even more humble and gentle. Knowing failures and disappointments, in highlighting the times of success and happiness with those around you in even higher sentiments. Your prayers and words, will always remain as a testimony to the power of God, in strengthening and bestowing wisdom in those whom seek Him earnestly. Let God become the core and continue to alter your centre into a God-shaped vacuum. Fill the void, that each and every one of us experiences- with Him, His vision, His principles, His love for us • with His love for everyone else.
You’re the reason I sing
The reason I sing
Yes my heart will sing
How I love You
And forever I’ll sing
Forever I’ll sing
Yes my heart will sing
How I love You
But if I say, “I will not mention his word
or speak anymore in his name,”
his word is in my heart like a fire,
a fire shut up in my bones.
I am weary of holding it in;
indeed, I cannot.
Sometimes, I think deeply on those whom have come across my path. Entwining my steps with theirs, sharing of their lives and moments. Listening to the stories of fellow friends and family in Christ in terms of what missional initiatives they have been on- to stories of preparing for the journey and experiencing God’s perfect missional timing. It is wonderful how His kingdom is being furthered in so many different ways.
Love. Wisdom. We yearn for you Let us become closer to you. But support those around us- so we not only grow closer to you, but strengthen the binding of every other sister and brother out there. Meant to be more. For You.
