"And you shall seek me, and find me,
when you shall search for me with all your heart."
- Jeremiah 29:13
I planned to write on my journal this morning. You know, the old fashion kind where I get a pen and handwrite my thoughts and prayers ...
I could not find where my journal is. That's a sign that it's been a while since I last wrote there. I really wanted to write there but I did not want to take the risk of getting distracted looking for that journal, that I'd miss this time of quietness ... seeking God ... being in His presence in this quiet morning ... just Him and I. This morning, I seek to know what His will is, what His plans are, what He wants me to do and where He wants me to go.
So much has been happening these past few weeks that is both exciting and exhausting at the same time. It's mostly good, good things, good opportunities. There are obstacles on the way but nothing that cannot be overcome. I wish I can share some of the details here, but it's not yet the time. Maybe next week. Maybe not.
It's Spring Break - that means no homework for the kids, no driving to and from school - these little things give me little snippets of time to quiet down and not be stressed.
Thinking about my life, I can't help but feel so blessed. Oh, I do have many struggles. I do worry a lot. I do get cranky and grumpy, especially when I am tired. But overall ... when I stop and look back, when I stop and look around, when I stop and contemplate on the many people I love and love me back, the many things I have that I never thought I would, the place where I live that I never thought possible - I am in awe of how blessed I am!
Thank you Jesus. Thank you God.
Below is my new favorite worship song. I sing this everyday in my car.... over and over again :)
