I walked home from the homeless shelter tonight feeling unbelievably cherished by God. I feel like He has poured so much favor and love on me. In some ways I have dealt with a lot of disappointment in the last two or three months, but my relationship with God is better than I would have known is possible. I thought I had such good plans, but God had plans that were even better. (I think there is a Scripture verse for that!)
I am so insignificant, so indispensable and so cherished all at one time. Please don’t ask me to explain that to you.
I continued to ask God to cleanse my heart of bitterness today. I have really been enjoying my X time. It makes life so much easier to live. I have no idea why I quit doing that for a few months.
I also did my super humbling step this morning that I told you about yesterday. My friend is really loving, so it was not so bad. Super humbling steps give me a lot more freedom. I feel free from all the fear I had over if all my new people in my new life learned about me back then.
I am so thankful Jesus is enough. I always think saying that is insulting. Isn’t He more than enough?
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” – Isaiah 55:8-11
