Go back

I had a very good day today, I think. It was quiet and restful and sober. My brain didn’t go in a million circles. A little shopping, a little decorating, a little Christmas Eve service, and a few Christmas treats. That just about sums it all up. For the last hour or so as I have spent some time alone and wound down for the night, I have felt a bit sad and lonely. I suppose it is good to feel homesick. It means there is a place on earth that feels a little bit like a home.

I can’t believe vacation is already half over. January seems like so much work. Celebrate Recovery seems like a lot of work. A few weeks ago, I heard one of the national directors say that for the last fourteen years, she has felt like quitting every other day. Yeah, me, too; but on the other days, it is the most rewarding ministry ever. I suppose we don’t quit because of that and because we want to follow God.

I wonder what God is going to do in 2015? 2014 sure was a humdinger. As I sit here thinking, I think I am going to have to learn to rely on God more. I am going to have to go back to where I was at the beginning of 2014, that is, relying on God to change me into the person I need to be to do what He has asked me to do. Believe He will continue to heal me and He will give me sufficient faith to obey.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
