Catching Up

Ahhhhhhh the wonderful amazing-ness of mothers. =) They rock, right?

I have an especially fine one. She keeps me on my toes, sets the bar for me, and calms me down when I get too crazy and flighty. A couple of days ago she sent me an email reminding me that it's been over six months since I posted on this blog, so here I am!

Weeeeell. Life has been busy, very busy. My older brother is moving out of the house for the first time...and across the country! Haha, overkill, no? My sisters have one more year of college respectively, and then they'll be off starting their solo lives. And, it looks like change is coming to my life as well!

I've learned a lot in the last months. The biggest lesson has been about God's favor - I have it already, and I don't need to do anything to earn it. You know that scripture that talks about how God will supply all our needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus? Yeah, well, I've always said that I believed that....BUT, I've majored in not needing that much. I've kept my expenses to a minimum, and trained myself to not want much of anything. I haven't asked God for much.

Now, I know that God wants me follow Him into new territory, and I can't go there without trusting Him. As I move forward, it's so easy to slip into old ways of thinking. My self protection/provision habits are so ingrained, it's taking conscious thought to change my patterns.

But I will do it! I was born for a purpose that is bigger than me! It's so big, I can't accomplish it without God! So I will learn, and I will learn, and I will relax into God's care - He's smarter than me anyway!!
