This week has been a week of me having to lean on what I know to be true about God. I’m praising God:
1). That He doesn’t steer us in the wrong direction.
2). That giving us big things to do is more about showing us who He is and what He can do through us and less about us. Life is only about us to the degree that we are willing to obey. Everything else is about Him.
3). That He’s teaching me about abundant living. By the way, it begins with humility. Weird, I know. More on that this fall.
4). Just when you think you’ve conquered a particular area of life that has been a constant battle, watch out. Praise God that He is always teaching and pulling back layers of our stuff and revealing the need for Him…again.
5). That my sister finally has internet again after her move! Getting an email from her yesterday was like Christmas.
6). For my health. I have enough aches and pains that would make me an orthopedist’s dream patient. But I’m not bedridden like so many I know.
7). As I’ve been preparing to teach non-English speakers this language, I have been reminded of the creativity of God. He put together an entire language out of only 26 letters. With 26 letters, people have written books, given speeches, spread the gospel, spoken words of encouragement, and changed the world. Stunning.
