God is always doing bbb

I’m not going to lie- I’m exhausted. Because of some big changes in our future the next few months are going to be hectic. But I am learning there is beauty in that. God is doing a lot in our lives. He has prepared the way for some exciting changes. Are we nervous? Yes, absolutely. But even more excited!! He is walking with us and He is directing our steps. He is teaching us to rely on Him for everything. Direction, strength, wisdom, energy, and so much more. He is answering our prayers in ways that surpass my wildest dreams

Over the past month I have been writing in my prayer journal like crazy. I love looking back over past prayers and seeing how He works. This past weekend I read a lot of my prayers from the past two years. I was overwhelmed when I realized just how perfect His timing is. He has used so many different experiences to line us up perfectly for this next step. John Piper said, “God is always doing 10,000 things in your life and you may be aware of three of them.” And you know what? He is right! So many of the trials & blessings I have experienced over the past year have allowed me to be right where I am today. Ready to be His vessel. Ready to be used.

Whether you recognize it or not, He is doing the same thing in your life. You may notice a few of the ways He is working in & through you, but you may not be able to see the 10,000 things He is doing to prepare you for your future.

The more I read through my prayers, the more I see His divine hand directing our paths. I could not be more thankful. Ann Voskamp said, “when I give thanks for the seemingly microscopic, I make a place for God to grow within me.” He is growing within me. The more I choose to recognize the blessings and give Him the thanks He deserves, the more I am blessed. Not necessarily tangibly blessed, but my spirit is blessed. Abba fills me with joy. Could there be a greater gift?

  1. What a lovely discovery to find your blog through Katie’s blog! I love that John piper quote. I’m in a season of feeling like I’m overwhelmingly blessed… As in I’m aware of abou 8 things god is doing in my life… But I love the thought that there are yet 9,992 I’m still unaware of 🙂

    • Love the connection! 🙂 Katie is the sweetest. What a gift it is that the Lord is showering you with blessings in this season! I’m right there with you- overwhelmingly blessed and baffled that He is doing far more than I am even aware of. God is good!
