God calls us to many things.
He calls us to follow Him.
He calls us to intimacy with Him.
He calls us to various vocations.
He calls us to spread the gospel.
He calls some of us to marriage.
Some to a step further, parenting.
Some of us he even calls us to adoption, post the parenting call.
He has called me to all of these, and I am finding that in the midst of this, there isn't much time left over. My days are very full with what He is asking me to live out. My life has become simple. But sometimes, simplifying becomes a necessity that cannot be denied any longer. Pieces began to show signs of unraveling. Work that had been carefully worked, began to show signs that something wasn't quite right. How thankful I am for the Holy Spirit showing me what needed to be attended to, where I needed to retrace back to earlier work, so as to strengthen it.
None of this is bad, or particularly difficult, it just means taking order of what happens each day, so as I can stay focused on fulfilling the call on my life. My heart longs to hear, "Well done, my good and faithful servant," someday.
This has been a season of home. A season of sticking to the task of training my children in the way they are to go. I do it most days with joy, joy in knowing that if I do, there is a promise from God that they will continue to walk it out in their lives, post them being taught it at home. Honestly, some of these days my heart is heavy and fighting off loneliness....But My faith believes that God's promises are true.
Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
2 Corinthians 1:20
For every one of God's promises are "Yes" in him; therefore also through him the "Amen" is spoken, to the glory we give to God.
My desire is to share my life and heart with you. My longing is to encourage you to passionately follow Him. I hope that even if my postings are more stretched out in between, that you will find words here that help you live out your life with joy and
greater and greater faith!
