2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
I feel hope in my spirit. I feel excited for the future. So many changes are taking place and I can feel God’s intimate presence. Sometimes God moves slowly teaching us to enjoy the moments, to enjoy what is front of us. Don’t rush He’s saying to me dear child. Take your time, slow down and watch everything around you. And then He moves when you least expect it, you feel Him near to your heart, knowing that something big will happen and that it’s not long now before the change will come. I have hope. I believe in a God that can do miracles. We are surrounded by God’s creation, beauty everywhere. We only have to look and know that this is a universe that the Lord created and not man-made, or caused just by some random particles coming together.
I am learning so much over these past months. Learning to be still in Father God’s presence. Enjoying the time that I get to plug into His love. Enjoying the moments of worship, and the moments of prayer. Enjoying being and not doing. Enjoying just listening to Him speak softly to my heart. Be patient my daughter. Be patient. Don’t let life’s journeys get you frustrated. It’s not in your time but in My time. And His timing is always perfect. It always comes at the right moment. If anything the most valuable lesson I have learned over these past months is patience, perseverance and trusting. Not all good things come to an end. In my case I used to think that everything good that would happen to me would come to an abrupt standstill. Yet this time the Lord whispered to my heart that this wonderful gift that God brought into my life will journey with me throughout my life through the good and bad.
God knows your deepest desires. Learn to surrender them at the foot of the cross. I have had to learn to let go and let God take control of this vessel and it reaps benefits. I know that one day soon I will be a wife. It won’t be in my timing, but it will be in the Lord’s timing. He’s been refining me moment by moment. Tweaking what needs to be tweaked. We’ve finally reached a point where we are travelling together in the same boat rather than in two separate boats. Lee throwing his luggage overboard, I leaving my luggage in my boat and climbing into his. There is something unique and special about that, as we stand united spiritually looking into the distance as we wait upon the Lord to say now is the time. Now it is the preparation stage. The stage before. My heart is filled with joy, peace and acceptance of the future. I am not afraid. I know that I can trust this man that God has brought into my life. We are good for each other. We can encourage each other and we bring out the best in one another. I am so grateful for the ups and downs we have had. If anything it has made us stronger. We are stronger together than when we are apart. We also know that we can serve the Lord better together than when we are apart.
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” – Lao Tzu
Without going through the trenches in a relationship and withstanding the struggle – you won’t know till you try if the relationship can withstand the storm. But when you’ve gone through the struggle, and are still standing with your love then you know that you can withstand anything that gets put in your way, because you’ve learned to have courage for what you believe in, and for what you believe is God ordained. Don’t allow anyone to take away what you have because they’ve not walked your journey. Let love conquer all fear. Don’t be influenced by people who break you down. Be your own influencer and listen to God for direction. Listen to the people who believe in your potential and who build you up. Learn to love, and let go of all doubts and uncertainties. God has them in the palm of His hand.
This is a new season for me. A season of change, a season of hope, a season of new beginnings, one of exciting beginnings and I am so truly very blessed. Thank you Father God for loving me and teaching me in Your way and in Your timing. In You I put my trust and I shall believe. Praise the Lord.
