Today is the two-year anniversary of this blog. I’m celebrating the goodness of God by remembering how every single time I sit down to write.. He gives me words to share with you. I’m also celebrating all of you..the readers..those who have left wonderful comments and those who are silent. You are all important and without you I would not be writing.
When I started God gave me a glimpse of something. He made it clear that we all need to be encouraged and we need rest, refreshment, and renewal. My goal in every post has been to draw you closer to the heart of our God.. I receive more than I ever give.
The last two years of my life have been very challenging.. how about yours? There were many times when I wanted to jump off the earth and leave it all behind. There were times when I just could not believe that God was in charge. Moments when I felt so abandoned and forgotten..I cried out to Him from a very deep place. He brought peace and hope. Mixed in were moments of joy, relief, understanding. and healing. God was busy.
Markers are very important. We have the chance to stop and remember..birthdays and anniversaries are markers we usually recognize. There may be others..spiritual markers.. something started and something ended. We are aware of a season coming to a close and God grabs our attention through a date or an experience. Sometimes there are book-ends. Something began 2 years ago and something new is beginning exactly two years later..that often happens to me.
There are patterns in our life..they direct us to the God who is behind the scenes unfolding a wonderful story that includes us. We have a part in this great drama..one that is distinctively ours. He wants us to see His work in ours lives and He gives us signs that He is close and watching over us. I hope you are blessed by what you read here..it is a reminder that we are all meant to see..
