. in this swing i sit. away from the calamity of the world. reflecting on the life set before me. i am anxious. slowly i begin to release the baggage i have collected along this crooked path. embracing those things that grow my faith and abandon my will. hope is refreshing. to be redeemed is to be elected and justified.
to my future, i write…i look forward to you. i welcome you and the identity you bring. making all things new, He has compelled me to worship Him. unto to Him i dedicate every step to. regretting those ill-advised decisions made, your authority is my covering. i will walk in this new identity. i know there is more required of me. i am Yours.
"For Ezra had set in his heart to study the law of the Lord and to practice it, and to teach His statues and ordinances in Israel."-Ezra 7:10
growth. they see me budding but i’m just a stem. roots deepening expecting to pollinate. i’m just a rose in the making.
Sisters. i have them in the boldest of ways. i have been surrounded, even crowded by the obedience of my sisters. i remember the prayer i prayed and the counsel i desired only to receive “beyond all that i [could] ask or think”. phenomenal it is to me to be embraced by a body of believers and girded to Word of God and strengthened in the faith. i love my church. i love my sisters and i love my brothers. we love because He loved us first. admittedly, this was a bond i never conceptualized outside of the ‘incorporation’ and ‘colors’. such a farce. i was blinded and led astray. i thank Him for them. i have found family. not temporal, but eternal.
Had the opportunity to plan and implement a surprise party for my mother’s 53rd birthday. awe man! God had His hand on every bit of it. Oh my, oh my. He is a good God. When things fall together so very perfectly, even with stressors it was with great ease. How blessed I am to have a mother who is ushering in another year in good health. And how blessed I am to gather with an assembly of believers who do life together. A work progress and continuously in progress, I am. He is a good God.
