“And I will call upon your name, and keep my eyes above the waves”…
A couple of weeks ago, I heard a sermon that spoke to the “emotional winters” of life. Spiritual seasons of struggle, as we hurry and wait for the newness of spring. Desiring to feel the warmth of the sun upon our faces, we deal with life’s challenges and opportunities from day to day. I was so blessed by the service, yet I find myself a little down and out this week.
Not only is it the anniversary of my brother’s passing, but the weather is gloomy and just plain sad. I can truly say that I am ready for spring. In an effort to cheer myself up, I decided to begin a new trend for my blog. My goal is to further express my worship each Wednesday via a post, under the category #WorshipWednesday. Today’s moment is brought to you by the raw emotions of uncertainty, sadness, anticipated joy, and gratitude.
I am uncertain of what my future holds. I am saddened by memories that stand still without the opportunity to grow, because of the loss of a loved one. Yet, I anticipate joy in all aspects of my life and I have a sincere gratitude for all things that Jesus Christ has done in my life thus far. I thank God for His many blessings, tests, struggles, accomplishments, and challenges. As I continue to press on, I pray that I am making Him proud. May I be the example of living according to His will, while discovering ways to be of service to those around me. Ultimately, it is not about me. I am not that important. It is about God. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
God bless you,
