Day 10: Home is Where the Heart is


I am visiting

at one of our previous

HOME

states

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,

until

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

where

GOD

was waiting for us

because

HE had bigger plans beyond what our eyes could see.

At the time

we wondered

Why here LORD

&

Why now?

And HIS response

as it always seems to be

was

WHY NOT?

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

once again

as GOD gently reminded me

of the JOY & HOPE & FREEDOM

that I found here

because

HE moved us here

years ago

& brought us back

to remember

that

HIS PLANS

are greater than our plans

even when we don't understand

what is happening in the midst of them

Because

OUR GOD

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.

If

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

and if HE is our HOME

then we are always HOME.

Therefore

draw closer to the

HEART of GOD

in TRUST

in HOPE

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.
