We invite you into Our Story, because you play an important role.
Below is a blog post I wrote at the end of January. The Fiddler and I were approaching the end of a 21 day fast when our life, as a family, changed.
Drastically. Suddenly. Shockingly.
This post had already been written, and saved as a draft, until now.
I remember what prompted me to write these words.
I remember God was so faithful to us during the fast. His presence was powerful, His words were clear, and His grace abundant.
I remember thinking, "What's up? God, you are being to generous with your love. So obvious. You are flooding our home, and my life, with more of your presence during this fast. Most of the time you tell me to Wait."
Oh, how I could Laugh Out Loud right now........ at my little Self!
We can not see the future, but He does. God has each step planned, every detail already written, and what others might intend for our harm - God intends for our Good.
Enjoy this post, and please join us in the coming days as we share our story, and our lives with you.
This is the last week of January, and the 21 day fast is approaching an end.
Or is it?
God has been so good to us. He has shown Himself powerful, sovereign, yet deeply personal in so many ways.
It makes me want to pursue Him even more. My thirst for Him has increased. The longing in my heart for more of Him, deepens.
I have no strength of my own, but when my weakness is met with His power, and when my lack of understanding is flooded with God's wisdom, direction, and discernment, then I am overwhelmed.
Overwhelmed by His greatness, when I am so small.
Overwhelmed by His power, when I am so weak.
Overwhelmed by His love.
Calming. Soothing. Peaceful. Wild. Extravegant.
"Fasting, praying, and feeding on the Word of God puts the sword in your hands and positions you to discern the difference between your thoughts and God's thoughts.
There is no higher authority than to know the heart of God for a situation you are facing. His Word is final!"

I know God is stirring a certain wind of change.
I can't see it right now, but I know it will be all about Jesus....... and I'm excited to see what He does.
