I know I said I’d be back from my blogging break around the first of February – but it feels as though God literally came down and took complete control of my January! And how could I say no? So I will try to post perhaps smaller articles, but it is going to be sporadic for the next month or so.
God has been working in my heart and the hearts of those around me in ways I had never seen before! These are the things He has been teaching me:
LOVE this God with every last bit you have in you. EMBRACE the entirety of the Scriptures – even when they convict you. Be BROKEN before Him in every area of your life. Take HOLD of the Gospel plow and NEVER look back. He is nothing to be ashamed of. This is where the joy is. I know, I have felt it, and He has put a new song in my mouth.
Then you will find God OPENS your heart wider than you ever could imagine. Your ears will hear the cries that come from wounded hearts – even if their lips are silent. Every single person you will meet is a heart – even though it may be lashing out at you. Look for this heart . . . and LOVE it. LISTEN to it. CRY with it.
But above all, DESIRE Christ more than your very own life.
