Haven't blogged too awful much lately. My aunt suggested I journal my really dry spell and my struggles as of late.
I didn't even really feel like doing that. Dry spell wasn't even the word, it was just void.
Sometimes I feel that God let me go back to everything I was missing to show me...."This is what you were missing." With fresh eyes I think "How on earth could I miss this?"
My life feels like a huge game of tug o war in a few different directions. Not a real good feeling.
I've been a little closer to God lately and never realized or understood til now what a wonderful gift His grace truly is.
I'm humbled beyond words at the grace He gives to me over and over. I totally haven't deserved any of it lately and He gives it.
I prayed for Him to show me which way to go as I struggle with switching churches and what I'm doing and unbelievable stuff just happens over and over again.
My dry spell ended Sunday. I really was just at an all low point and really on the verge of quitting it all and completely reverting back to a life that I didn't enjoy. Lets just say there's a girl I didn't think liked me etc. I don't really know how to put it other than I knew God one day would use her in my life. I was going to communion on Sunday and pass her and she grabs me, hugs me and tells me she misses me at group.
I was in shock, but that was the start....A card at work from a lady telling me how much I'm appreciated. People calling up there to see if I'm there so they can come in. People telling me that I make all the difference at work. A guy today bringing me in a stack of postcards because he wanted to show me every single place he visited while he was on vacation.
I just sit back and think...."People actually think about me outside of work?" They do.
I don't know the answer, I know I will still fail over and over...But I'm understanding so much right now that it's times like this when God is showing me not only His mercy, but so much of His grace.
I totally love Him so much and just wish I had easy answers for everything going on. I think that's His point though. He's showing me there really are no answers.
I try to fix everything and run my life the way I think it should go and I fail epically all over. When I try to do this, I'm going to fail.
Yesterday I was filled with so much joy. A joy and a peace that could only come from God. My hope is in Christ, not in anything else.
I really didn't enjoy my old life and He's helping me see how much I enjoy the one He gave me.
There's so much out there waiting for me. People who want to be with me. I don't have to force it or wish for it because it's true. I'm wanted =) and that's a wonderful feeling to have.
I repeat to myself all day long, my hope is in Christ.
Have a wonderful day =)
