I talked to one of my best friends today. I get to see her tomorrow and I'm excited.
You know, I'm excited because I get to see Jesus too. Not visually, spiritually. In fact, I can 'see' him right now!
I love him so.
My life is changing. I mentioned in my last post that my birthday just passed. I'm twenty-three now. My mom says that she always noticed with her children that their birthday actually DID change them. Most people don't feel any different just because their birthday passed, but she noticed that we always seemed to change. Now, I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not, but maybe.
I took off my engagement ring. It's back on, but I felt God's pull to be willing to take it off... and I was. I still love my guy so much, but if I never see him again, it's okay. Not because I love him even one iota less, but because I love God so much more than I did even a week ago. And I hope that keeps growing. I still Hope for my guy, but I know my Hope is that being with him is a part of the divine plan; if it's not, then I don't want any part of him. I have a hunger for God, and blessedly, I am continually satisfied.
I may have been laid off, but I am not unemployed or idle. God has such work for me and I am just bursting in my skin to do it! I have no idea what it will be... Amen, Alleluia, Amen.
The season of Lent begins next week. I am so excited.
Praise God, Praise God, Praise God and you will never regret it.
