There have been 2 scriptures lately that have just pierced my soul and spoken so powerfully to my heart.
"And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. And I will be found by you." (Jeremiah 29:13-14)
"For Your Word has given me life" (Psalm 119:50b)
Each time I read these verses, they breath new life into my soul. They rejuvenate my spirit and they just restore the joy in my heart. I keep them on index cards in my car and on my desk so I can see them many times a day. They are spiritual water that quenches my thirst.
I have never had a season of such seeking in my life like I have had lately.
I have never hungered for the Word of God like this before.
I have never thirsted so deeply and desperately for a Word of spiritual Truth from my Savior like I have recently.
I crave His presence.
I desire His touch.
I long for the Truth of His Word.
Our lives get too busy and too focused on the wrong things. We can start going in the wrong direction and not realize it until it's too late. Our dailyness can take many twists and turns and it can take us through varying trials and testings.
Lately I have been very unhappy in my job. I have worked in the same place for almost 9 years. Things have evolved there into a place I no longer recognized. I had become someone that I no longer enjoyed being. My job had become a burden to my soul and I just felt like maybe it was time for a change. I had been praying about it for awhile.
Yesterday the Lord just impressed upon me, "today is the day. It's time." So I turned in my resignation.
I felt so free when I walkd out of there at 5 PM yesterday. I felt like a giant weight had been lifted off of me. I felt a peace that I haven't felt in a long time.
I pray that during this time of reflection and seeking in my life, that I will listen to God and heed the direction that He points me in.
These next few weeks I plan to do some much needed ministering alongside my pastor husband. There are so many in our church and community that are in need of physical and spiritual healing. I pray that I can be a help to him during this time. I've never been able to go with him and visit and I am looking forward to that.
I don't have any plans other than just letting God show me His plans. I will seek and I will search for direction from Him. I only want to be in His will and I only want to go where He leads.
Remember that sign that I saw in Colorado?
Do Not Pass
That sign was for me. I have not doubt. Pray for me as I embark on this new experience and as I seek His will. The following verse is one I read this morning. Oh, Hallelujah! God is so good.
"Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in
And rivers in the desert."
