For us, so far 2012 has been a year of radical changes.
Already we’ve been blessed with news of a new addition to our family, a new locale, an upcoming change in career, a new church home…
For a guy who’s supposedly quitting his job, I feel awfully busy.
For the first time in ages I feel the stirrings of hope in my life. God has already blessed us so completely with a loving family, it almost seems too much to believe that it He’s actually going to make it even better.
Our God is an awesome God!
I’m really looking forward to having this summer to spend so much time with my family. This will be the last summer before Leila starts school and her last summer as an only child. Getting to hang at the beach and play in the pool on an almost daily basis together is going to be a time I will cherish for the rest of my life.
The hard part for me is waiting patiently for the changes to come. I’m always trying to live in the future and stir things up to produce the outcome that I’m hoping for.
Now that the change is right there on the horizon it’s time for me to go against my nature, slow down and live for the moment. I really feel that my Lord is trying to teach me this lesson.
Try wait…each day is an amazing gift that our Lord wants to unfold for us if we’ll only take the time to visit with Him, watch and listen.
