I am visiting
at one of our previous
from where we moved
and the memories are flowing back.
At first I had quite the negative attitude,
as all that I was remembering was the coldness and the grayness.
I basically was a Negative Nellie,
GOD woke me up
and reminded me
~It was here where my FAITH grew into REALITY
~It was here where my RELATIONSHIP with JESUS flourished
~It was here where the WORD became TRUTH
~It was here where my PASSION became a FIRE for the LORD
because it was here
was waiting for us
HE had bigger plans beyond what our eyes could see.
At the time
Why here LORD
And HIS response
as it always seems to be
Just as HE told Job
when he wondered the same thing~
“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
Tell me, if you know so much....
“Have you ever commanded the morning to appear &
caused the dawn to rise in the east? (Job 38:4;12).
Oh how I question GOD'S plans
when I don't understand what HE is doing
because HIS WAYS are not my WAYS.
And HE reminds me again~
“Do you still want to argue with the Almighty? You are GOD'S critic, but do you have the answers?” (Job 40:2)
Oh my eyes have been opened
as GOD gently reminded me
of the JOY & HOPE & FREEDOM
that I found here
HE moved us here
& brought us back
are greater than our plans
even when we don't understand
what is happening in the midst of them
is always taking us
From What is to WHO IS so much greater
no matter where HE moves us
because HE is always
where HE moves us
when we make HIM our HOME.
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
and if HE is our HOME
then we are always HOME.
draw closer to the
HEART of GOD
and in GREAT EXPECTATION
“ 'For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,' declares the Lord" (Isaiah 55:8)
for HE is always moving us from
RAGS to HIS RICHES~
From What is to WHO IS so much greater.
