Well it’s been quite a while hasn’t it?! I can hardly believe I haven’t been on here in so long! So much has been going on and I felt like I needed to have my focus fully on my family and not being distracted trying to write something when I didn’t feel the Lord prompting me to. But I have missed writing on here, that is for sure! And I’m hoping to go back to regularly posting again.
So much has been going on lately…we found out we’re expecting baby #4, planting a church, family visits, three kiddos who have needed extra attention lately…I could go on and on and I’m sure many reading this can relate to the seasons of busyness.
Throughout it all, I’ve been feeling the Lord beckoning me deeper in my relationship with Him…calling me to walk out my faith, not just in words but deeds, as never before…challenging me in my relationship with Him…stirring in me this passion for something that I can’t explain or don’t even know what it is yet.
The Lord has been challenging me in my focuses and simplifying things right now to focus my full attention on my three callings right now…being a godly wife, being a godly mom and ministering to those the Lord brings in my path-including supporting and encouraging my husband as we step out to plant a church.
I’ve probably said it so many times on here, but I want to be a woman who’s whole heart and focus is on the Lord and doing what He’s called me to do. That my next heartbeat would be one of obedience. That I would be so in tune with God that He would speak to me even more and reveal things in scripture as never before. That my focus would be on heavenly things and free from the distraction of earthly things.
This morning I woke up to this verse and it’s been the prayer of my heart,
“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.” Colossians 3:1-2
Let us fix our eyes on the Lord God, Creator of all things, who knows every need that we will ever have and cares for each one of them as we continue to trust Him. Let us cling to Him, our Father, and rest in His warm embrace. Knowing that we are always safe right beside Him and protected in His arms.
