Okay, I am back.
I know you have all missed me terribly, and for that I apologize. I went on a kind of unplanned sabbatical from the blog, actually from a lot of things, the last two weeks. Life just happened, and it was a little more pressing to live it instead of write about it.
But God has brought us to a place of peace now, not ease, but peace. His peace, you know, the one that passes understanding. The peace of knowing you are right in His will, even if the storms rage around you. The peace of obedience. It is a wonderful thing, because in that place of obedience where I find the peace of obedience is where He is - and He is the greatest peace of all.
On a side note, don't you just love in scripture when it says 'But God....' I know I do.
Gen.50:20 Joseph is telling his brothers that even though they planned evil for him, " but God meant it unto good,.."
Psalm 73:26 "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
Romans 5:7-8, "For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
Ephesians 2:4-5 "But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)"
Just to name a few.
So, God has brought us to a new season. A season of change. An 'I am a stay at home homeschooling wife and mother' season.
And I could not be more ecstatic!!!
In His time, in His season, His fruit.
"And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that
bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper." Psalm 1:3
