The verse pictured above has become deeply personal for me lately. The Lord has been inviting me to come and talk with Him and my heart is responding in a big way.
This time with God recently has been so much more than my regular quiet time with Him. He has been opening my eyes and heart more so than ever before. Quite honestly, I am coming undone before my God.
Scripture is coming alive in a deeply personal way and I have felt the Lord calling me to study it with abandon. While I have read the Word my whole life, this is different. I find myself longing to study God's Word more than anything else. It has been a little crazy, but also amazing!
I also have felt the Lord challenging me to live in complete surrender to Him and be willing to do ANYTHING that He asks, knowing that His plans for me are always for my good and His glory.
As a missionary and more recently, having followed God's lead to start Resilient Faith Project, I felt like I was already pretty sold out to the Lord. I have gone with Him on some pretty hard and also incredible journeys, but God is revealing to me that I have always held some things back from Him and wanted to maintain some sense of control over my life.
Now He wants ALL of me and for the first time in my life, I feel ready to give my wholehearted yes. The things that once seemed so scary now feel like freedom. Here I am, Lord, send me!
So, what exactly does this mean? Honestly, I don't fully know yet, but I am seeking God's face and I know He will show me in time. I believe that part of His plan has to do with Resilient Faith Project and I will share more as the Lord reveals.
In the meantime, I would appreciate your prayers for wisdom and understanding. I am praying that God would meet each of you where you are and reveal Himself in whatever way is most needed in this time. He is enough for every need!
