Changes

We are enjoying all of the changes this season. We are soaking up the changing weather and the work needed to prepare for the coming change in the next 6-7 months. {for the record, no, we are not pregnant}. And as a planner, I want to sit down and figure out every detail- maybe even with a holiday drink in hand. But I can’t. Why? Honestly, because we don’t know a lot of the details. This next step isn’t something we can really plan. And this terrifies me. But this month the Lord has blessed me with two specific devotions from the ‘Jesus Calling’ that sang perfectly to my heart. {Anyone else love the devo book ‘Jesus Calling’ by Sarah Young?}. The first devo came on October 6th. It began,

 “Be willing to follow… Though you don’t know what lies ahead, I know; and that is enough! Some of my richest blessings are just around the bend… to recieve these gifts, you must walk by faith- not by sight.”

“For we live by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7

“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

The second devo came on October 10th. 

“Trust me enough to let things happen without striving to predict or control them. Relax, and refresh yourself in the Light of My everlasting Love… When you project yourself into the future, rehearsing what you will do or say, you are seeking to be self-sufficient: to be adequate without My help. This is a subtle sin- so common that it usually slips by unnoticed… rely on Me in every situation. This discipline will enable you to enjoy life more and to face each day confidently.”

“Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this: 
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
 your vindication like the noonday sun.”
Psalm 37:3-6

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:19

The Lord holds our futures in His hands. What He has planned far surpasses any earthly plan I could ever imagine. We must relax and just follow. Our God is greater.

  1. I am getting pretty excited to see what the Lord is going to do in your life! I can already tell he is doing big things but I’m excited to hear about the change. 🙂 Praying for you and the changes to come!

  2. I love this! My girl friend is having a little one soon (Her name will be Grace) and this past weekend at her shower her sister gave her this in a frame. Just Perfect!!

  3. I love Jesus Calling, and those devotionals stood out to me, too. This part especially spoke to me: “When you project yourself into the future, rehearsing what you will do or say, you are seeking to be self-sufficient: to be adequate without My help. This is a subtle sin- so common that it usually slips by unnoticed.” I’ve been so guilty of that.
