So the past few days have been absolutely amazing. I have just been really reflecting on God's grace in my life- and it has been really overwhelming. I think between seeing absolute depravity in friends and family- and going through "Desiring God" it has really brought all of this on- But I am just so amazed at the fact that God gives me grace. Not only in salvation, but everyday.
This morning I just had the most sweet time of fellowship with the Lord. (Not bragging, but still just amazed) in just thinking on His infinite wisdom and value. His glory and majesty. Creator and Sustainer of the universe. Yet He communes with a grasshopper like me. I cannot fathom that at all. It just left me speechless.
I am just learning to beg God for a desire and a hunger for only Christ. I am just amazed at Paul and His satisfaction in Christ alone. I have to admit, I do not have that- I love my family and my life too much. There are times when I long to be with Christ, but more times than not, I take joy in just being with my family. So I am learning to beg God to help me let go of my life. Man, that is my biggest hearts desire right now.
I'm also going through James in my quiet times (and using some sermon notes from wed. nights) and I am so thankful for that book! Right now I am in the place where I am in between trials, and it was so wonderful to take it to the Lord. Before the storm even begins, to take it to Him and beg for wisdom in it and strength to get through it. Man, I just want to be in His will and be glad in it. I am thankful that He loves me enough to put me through these things to make me more in love and dependent on Him!
(by the way, this picture above is a picture called "between storms" I thought that was pretty cool!
