So, something is brewing. It’s been stirring in my soul for a while now, but I’m trying desperately to allow HIS timing to bring this thing to the forefront and to remain in the passenger’s seat. For someone with control issues that is easier said than done.
I have been waking up in a number of ways, but these days I have been waking up with expectation & anticipation. Something is coming. And, it feels bigger than me. Out of my control, but something I must do. It’s like a yearning- something drawing me in to the unknown. I can’t remember the last time I was this excited. This passion inside me is like food for my soul – It’s making me purpose-full.
I was reminded of these verses: Romans 8: 15-16 (Message Version)
“This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?” God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children.”
I’ve been so touched by the song in the video below. “Good, Good Father” Her voice, The lyrics, The Spirit. It’s captivating and to say the chorus over and over really calls me to evaluate who I am. Before all the worldly titles I give myself or others give me – Wife, Mom, Friend, Photographer, Teacher, Awesome (well, because we are think we are awesome) – there is a title he gives me – “I am loved by Him”. That’s who I am.
As I begin this journey, whereever this road takes me, I pray that I remember that before anything – I remember that I am loved by Him. That His Simple Wild Love for me is what started this whole thing and it will be what finishes it – not me and who I think I am or who others tell me I am. This thing is His. Come along for the ride and let’s see what He has planned for the Simple Wild Love business that’s launching in January, 2016!
