I am back everyone! I apologize for my unexplained and unannounced hiatus. When I first started this blog, it was never my intention to go MIA any period of time, much less 6 weeks, however, I found the time separated was oddly what I needed.
Anyway, some crazy things have happened since I left and I am still trying to gather my thoughts on how to dive further into this in the future. Until such time, we need to kick it back off with more music Wednesday’s because well, let’s face it…it’s been a while.
If you remember back to the beginning of the year, I found myself saying I am filled with faith of the work God is going to do throughout 2017. I stand by that post with everything I have today because I have been seeing it happen again and again.
So as a bit of backstory, there are certain things in my life God and I go round and round about, and for a little bit, I felt like we were making good progress. Ephesians 3:20 had been on my mind so much and I remember analyzing my situations, talking with God about it, and thinking God this really does feel like immeasurably more.
I would drive down the road to work and ask God to direct me in the correct path. There was some pain and confusion, but not much. For the most part, I was praising God and thanking Him. I walked around thinking “this is it.” Then today, that door I was so thankful God gave me a glimpse of closed. Just right in my face, there was nothing I can do about it anymore.
While I expected and prepared myself for something like this to happen, it also didn’t take long for me to retract back on my words and instead of praising God for what He had blessed me with to go back to thoughts such as “God did I hear you correctly?” or “Well God, I see nothing has ACTUALLY changed.”
Foolish, right? How much more flighty can you get?
Then we fast-forward to bible study tonight. I’m sitting there listening to the speaker tell the story of king David when he says God showed David his future as king, but then he had to face years of trials before the promise would come to fruition. A glimpse of the future, but no roadmap on how to get there, only God as a compass. It was one of those statements that made me take a step back and think.
THEN, during discussion, a lady at my table suggested I listen to Do It Again by Elevation Worship. I was shocked I’d never heard this song since I listen to Elevation SO much, but I was all for it. The first thing I did when I got in my car was turn this song on and wow is all I have to say.
Maybe God knew I needed to hear this? Possibly it’s just a coincidence? Either way, there is no denying this song spoke to me. I found myself relating to the lyrics in a way I haven’t in a while. The song speaking the word of God me found me right where I needed it.
I was reminded God has a plan. Even if this door really did close, it does not mean He and I cannot reach immeasurably more in some other way (He is God after all). Through it all, I believe He is able.
P.S. The bridge is the best part – “I’ve seen you move, you move the mountains, and I believe I’ll see you do it again. You made a way when there was no way, and I believe I’ll see you do it again.”
