This week has been crazy! I have felt like this week has just went right past me and I haven’t had the chance to sit and blog. I am so excited to be able to finally sit down and actually blog!
This Tuesday, Colin and I will be married 9 months! It is really amazing how fast time can go by. All the different experiences ( I have mentioned them before) and ways that we have both grown. This Tuesday, is also the start of the new Ladies Bible study and I will be leading it. I am so excited and even a tad nervous. In more ways then one, I am just eager to see what God reveals in the hearts of myself and the ladies joining me on this journey to Discerning God’s Voice. It is a study by Priscilla Shirer. With this study, as I was previewing it, I think that it will really speak to everyone in the different seasons. I know that this year has started out a little rough. You know what though, God has been preparing my heart and shaping through the difficult times this year has brought. In Isaiah 43 this chapter talks about how much God loves and protects us. No matter how big the wave is that comes up to wash over you and sweep you up, God is so much bigger and He promises that in the tough times He won’t allow it to take you. You hear so many times that God doesn’t give us more then we can handle, but at times I think He does in order that we may learn to cling to Him in the tough times and not relying on our own strength. We are not promised easy, breezy lives. We are promised that when the winds pick up we have an anchor to keep us in place.
Last Sunday, Colin went up before the church to announce officially his calling to preach. It means that things will be moving forward and he will be sharing the Word of God officially. This means also, a whole beginning. The next chapter of our lives and I wouldn’t want to go through life with anybody else.
I am still doing some décor work on the new place, so I will eventually be doing some pictures… I smell a trip to HomeGoods!!!
