God's Gifts

I just need to brag on the Lord for a second...I have this thing that I have been praying about off and on for over a year. It is a desire of my heart that I know comes from God, because ultimately it is about Him being glorified. My desires tend to involve things really deep like going to Target or Hobby Lobby for stuff (which is what I did this morning) ...but I digress. He says Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He will do it. Psalm 37:4-5

Did you hear what he said? HE WILL DO IT!!! Not Christa, figure out how to make this happen and do it. No, He says He will do it! So now I get to stand back and Praise Him. I get to watch and see how he chooses to lead and I simply follow. I have mentioned before that I am doing BSF. I have a girl in my BSF group who is a mother of one of the girls on Aidan's class at school, so when we get a chance we usually end up talking because we have something in common. I have enjoyed having her in my group and have wanted to get to know her better. Well, I just found out that she is an author. She is an author of a book that talks specifically about the desire that God has put on my heart. You have no idea how excited I am. I have felt stuck and I have been waiting for things to change, to have some direction, and now it looks like God may have just opened a door and said walk here! I have already ordered the book and we are going to try to get together for coffee soon. I am so thankful for His goodness. I love those moments when I sit in awe of His goodness, His Sovereignty, and His attention to detail. Now is one of those times.

Ok, I've been thinking lately about how you and I need to go get coffee one night when kids are in bed because it seems that over the last six months or so, we've started a billion conversations that never got finished...thanks to our little punkins! So reading your post today really makes me want to get together, because I'm interested in hearing more, if you're wanting to tell more!
