He's Weeding My Garden

God that is. You may have noticed. It's been coming out a little in these posts. I love it. Most of the time. There are moments and days when I'd like to be DONE ALREADY! Thank you very much.

The part I love is this: The closer I get to God, the more I hear His voice, feel His heart, the more impossible it is to justify any negativity in me. I have a choice here. I can surrender to Him and give up the sin and justifications of it. Or I can move back from His side. Step back a step from intimacy with the Most High.

Well, option number two is not happening my friends. Not on your life.

So, I have the overwhelming joy of submitting to my Lord. Weeding forks, refining fire, whatever it takes. My constant cry is "Come deeper God! Come deeper. Don't stop. I surrender all to You."

And I have the stunning privilege not only of hearing His beautiful voice on a daily basis; I also get to watch the lives around me change because of MY surrender. Beginning with my wonderful husband and children and fanning out from there. It is glorious.

Luke 12:30-32 says (in The Message, can you tell which translation I've been enjoying lately:)

"People who don't know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep yourself in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. Don't be afraid of missing out. You're my dearest friends! The Father wants to give you the very kingdom itself."

Seek first the Kingdom and all these things will be given to you as well...

Hey there,

You definitely smile a lot more these days. I'm not just talking about that "I'm smiling because I should" smile either, I'm talking about that wrinkle eyed, puffy cheeked, light up a room smile that you're so good at.

Before :|

After :D
