Yesterday I was reminded to focus on Jesus and how God loves us. In the sermon, Tom said, “Don’t get distracted by doing things for God or like God. Let God touch you and let Him lead. It’s not about what you’re going through, but what you’re going to do.” That hit home for me. I’m usually trying to figure out what to do next, wrestling with what to do with my art, how to serve the Lord etc… Later, two women prayed for me, speaking God’s words to my heart and mind, a new path, a new way. An easier way really: me letting go of of trying to make things work, and waiting and letting God touch me and lead me. Where will it lead? I have no idea, except I know it leads to Christ, more of Him. He must be my center. I must trust Him. I want to trust Him because more and more I’m experiencing God’s loves, and I know He loves you too!
This blessing, I gave quite awhile ago. This is one side of it. I think it reflects what I am going through now: longing, believing for new vision, Christ at the center, within reach and beyond my expectations, alive with resurrection power and living with us.
“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,
who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
