Just a crack...

This is what I feel like- a little crack and the light has started to shine through. I want to keep the light. I am trying to learn how to do that.

On the day I saw these clouds it was amazing to watch them shift and change. The light was always there-never moving- just dancing in and out of the clouds as they shifted. I saw different areas experience the light. They were illuminated- basking in the warmth for awhile then the clouds would change and the light would shine in another place for awhile.

This feels like my life. God is always there, his love seeking to warm and illuminate my life. As different parts of my life come under that I am changed. Sometimes for a season- sometimes permanently. I like the permanent changes- the ones that revolutionize my thinking and my life. They are the ones that help me realize that the lesson I have learned has sunk deep into me and transformed me. The seasonal changes are hard. It's like I've only just begun to grasp what he has for me-or I have replaced one thing with another that is not healthy. Arrgh! SO frustrating. I am trying to enjoy, no embrace the process more so that the transformation is more permanent.

Just a crack and already so much Truth to embrace...

Silence and All at 6am

Well, I decided that if I woke up before I needed to I would not go back to sleep I would get up and spend time with God. Today was the first time since I made that resolution and it was awesome. I woke up at 6am and was uneasy- I didn't feel bad I just was not rested, so I got up and went into the living room and spent time with him.

The scripture was Ephesians 3:20, which is kinda odd because its in the middle of a thought.

"Now to him who is able to do immeasureably more than we ALL we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,..."

Obviously it is the "All" that caught my attention. If I ask God to do what I know I can do, where's the glory? How does that bring glory to him? When I trust him to do the "all" that's when his glory shines and I become a testimony, an arrow pointing toward Heaven. The "All" has new implications for me. How have I read this and missed that?I need to dream big.

Daddy God,
I want my life to bring glory to you, in the "All" is where that rests. Help me to ask "All" and turn it over to you.

UGH! Whine for the day

I have to work today. I am so not up to it. What a whiner I am! I love where I work, it's just that I am inertia girl & that makes it hard.

Inertia- the tendency of an object in motion or rest to stay in motion or rest.

What that means is, if my lazy butt has been sitting at home for 3 weeks that's where I want to stay- not go to work. Well, I have no choice so that's the Whine for the Day!

Sunday evening we had The Gathering which is our communion service and worship time. We have started doing this once a month and I love it. Some friends of ours usually lead worship for us, but this week Jenny was sick. She called me a couple of days before and sounded awful. Anyway, without someone to lead in music Danny & I prayed about it and decided to do a concert of prayer. This is an idea we got from World Changers.

Every summer Danny is the Project Coordinator for at least one WC project and this is something they do one night for worship. Its a time of guided prayer and silence-something we never have enough of. In the course of the evening we also took communion.
What an amazing time. I am a person who seems to need very little silence so when I find myself craving it I know I'm at my end. Sunday wet my thirst for it. I don't know when I'll get it. With 3 kids and countless summer activities it seems like a challenge. I tried today but my super-cute daughter decided to get up early-surprise. Hopefully it will work out soon. Maybe I need a retreat. I would like to go here.
