I am really, really sure He loves me. I rested today, and I managed to spend more than X time with God. Not much more than X time, but still it was more than X time. The last few days I have been becoming more and more ready for a good, long vacation. Due to the nature of my life, I cannot take one very soon. Today it occurred to me if I spent X time with God, maybe I could manage without a vacation for a little longer.
I am super excited to get started on my novel next week. My second novel. The outline is making me pretty excited. I have all kinds of conversations I want to engage in it, but I do not know all the plot yet. Of course, in my first novel, I kept changing the plot line along the way, so who knows?
Tonight I am extremely, extremely grateful for my church family and the place God has called me. I went to a meeting in NYC today; and as I walked down from the Heights and saw the view, I was entirely amazed by what God has allowed me to step into. How did I ever make it to NYC to do what He has asked me to do? So excited! and thankful! Sometimes I think God has forgotten who I used to be! Doesn’t He know who I was? Cause it was impossible for who I was to become who I am.
Sometimes when I sing the God of the impossible song, I switch some of the words to God of the improbable. Sometimes when I sing the song that says “Change the atmosphere. Build Your kingdom here”, I change the lyrics to “Change the atmosphere or get me out of here, I pray!” But I digress…
I think I know what my weekly thought is going to be next week; but honestly I have so many thoughts right now, it will be very hard to choose just one.
I am so excited to celebrate the holiday with my family on Monday! When did I start getting excited to see people and go to parties?
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. – Isaiah 61:1-3
