Baby Steps

Dear heart,

Be still. Be quiet. Be faithful. His grace is sufficient for you. He loves you and has promised to finish the work that He has begun in your life. Rest. Be confident. Do not be anxious and do not fret about what tomorrow holds. He knows what you need before you even ask. Be content in all circumstances.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)

"Ascribe unto the Lord the glory due His name. Ascribe unto the Lord the honor and the praise. For He is holy and He is worthy of all of the glory and all of our love."

It has been a difficult few days. Difficult few months, really. Yet, deep down I know He's there, working out the finer details, even when I don't see it. A six hour conversation today reminded me of all of the ways in which He has already orchestrated so many of the people and circumstances in my life to bring me to the exact place I am today. To accomplish His purposes and to heal me. Why is it so easy for me to forget that? Why do I so easily lose sight of the fact that He is restoring my heart after years of hurt and damage.

It really is true, what they say. That if you were the only person to ever have lived, Christ would have died for you. That's how personal it is. That's how incredibly unfathomable His love is. I can't comprehend that. Honestly, it's a train wreck for me. But that doesn't make it any less true. That kind of love knows no limits. That kind of love knows no boundaries. In two months, I will have the highest honor and privilege of experiencing a tiny glimpse of that kind of love. I'm so overwhelmed by what is to come and yet also so very grateful for this gift. Because that is exactly what life is. It is the most precious gift and it is not to be taken lightly. I hope I never take it lightly.

Here's to what's up ahead. To the road less traveled. To the brave ones who step out on faith, because they know no matter what, He'll be there to pick them up when they fall. He's doing that for me right now and I'm finally ready to take the next steps.
