And so the next two weeks- I'm clinging tight to His hand- I want Him to be enough, not only in the hard times, but in the amazingly-wonderful-too-good-to-be-true times. I don't want people or stuff to draw me away from Him. And His calling for our lives.
Just this morning I read this:
"And don't turn aside, for then you would go after empty things which cannot profit or deliver, for they are nothing." -I Samuel 4:21So, I want to enter in fully to this glorious life He has called us to. I want to hide myself so deeply in His heart that nothing can turn me aside and draw me away. I want to cherish the gifts of this place, so that I can cherish the gifts of Florida, and return here full, and not bitter.
Here are some moments I've been cherishing:
