I’m still on my blogging break, but I just couldn’t stand it any longer!!! I just had to hop on here and say “hello”! You have been so sweet to comment on my last post, and to keep coming back – even when there’s nothing new here. 🙂
My husband’s jeep “died” last week and he’s been using my van – so between staying home without a vehicle to run around in, AND the blogging break…you wouldn’t believe how clean my house is, and how caught up the laundry is (and how little money I’ve spent lately)! It’s amazing! 🙂
The “forced rest” has been good for my soul! But I’m thinking that I’m going to be in need of some serious “shopping therapy” any day now… In fact, my hands are craving the feel of clothing on hangers as I pass through racks filled with possible outfits! Somebody get me to Khols or Goodwill SOON!!! 🙂
Seriously, I don’t mean to be so “secretive” about what God is doing in our lives right now – but I must stay quiet for a while longer. (We’re so thankful to God that our family is healthy, intact, and it’s not a marriage, job, health, or financial crisis.) God is working, and He has called us to join Him in a particular area – and that’s what we’re doing (and it’s taking some extra time and focus.)
In Genesis 24, Abraham’s servant tells Rebekah’s family an incredible truth – one that I want to be the testimony of every day of my life. In the Amplified, it says,
“The man bowed down his head and worshiped the Lord and said ‘Blessed be the Lord… As for me, going on the way of obedience and faith, the Lord led me’…” Gen. 24:26-27.
I love that. As for you and me – as we go on the way of obedience (to God’s every instruction – whether we understand all of the details or not), and faith (trusting in Who it is that we serve), He will lead us. Period! What a blessing to know, and what a challenge to live by!
That’s what I’m praying for you and for me… that we would go on the way of obedience and faith – so that the Lord will lead our every move. Then He will be glorified, and we will be at peace in Him!
Have a wonderful weekend. I’ll ttyl … With love…
