If you subscribe to my blog via email or networked through Facebook or Google Reader…scoot over to my blog for a minute. The first song playing is by–oh my soul–Fernando Ortega…Give me Jesus.
You can give have all this world–but give ME Jesus…
No matter what the Lord has set in front of you today–this afternoon–tonight…whenever you are reading this…He is enough.
In the morning…when I rise…Give Me Jesus.
Go on over…
All that is on your plate.
All that is on your shoulders.
All your fears.
All your worries.
For some reason–He allowed those things…each and every one to come your way.
BUT. He never intended for YOU to really carry them.
He wants to.
But He can’t.
Until you hand them over to Him.
One by one.
You can say them by name.
And tell Him—you don’t understand them all.
But He does…
And He has an amazing plan for each one.
WHEN you hand them to Him.
He wants us to sit before Him…empty handed.
And then–He wants to fill us.
You can have all this world…but give me Jesus.
Waiting on Him…
I had a sweet conversation with our agency representative today. With the diagnosis from the doctor–we can get doctors notes, get them cleared from the agency and country rep and if all looks well–move forward. However, I told her that I couldn’t help but see the Lord trying to show us something…to slow down…to make sure I’m 100%…to simply wait on Him and His perfect timing. I want to be sure I feel good in 1, 2 or even 3 months. I want to make sure my heart isn’t getting ahead of the Shepherd leading it. And just wait on Him. He is too good not to lead me. He has been so faithful. And He will guide us…and lead us…and if it’s His will for us to bring home a precious princess in China–He will lead and guide us in His perfect timing.
Some times a door closes. And it’s closed for just a time for forever. Days–weeks and months might pass…and the door opens. I never want to look for open doors MORE than I look for Him standing in it…and calling me to come…in His time.
My homeopathic doctor thinks he can have Lyme’s cleared in 6 months. My rheumatologist says there is no cure for Sjogren’s–it’s just arthritis pain here and there…maybe some forgetfulness/memory sprinkled in…some of this and some of that…but nothing to take it away. I figure we’ll continue natural Lyme treatment and make sure all is well…and as we wait–and walk this part of the journey…we’ll keep our eyes on the open doors and wait on Him to say COME.
Blessings to you today.
