It’s been awhile since I’ve been here. I made the mistake of neglecting to mention several weeks ago that I’d be offline…
but you probably figured that out by now!
I flew home this past Friday after being away for about sixteen days … sixteen packed and eventful days which I have only just begun to start processing. The She Speaks conference, a beautiful wedding, fellowship with special loved ones … and all of the blessings before, after, and in between. Like, crazy blessings. I could easily write dozens of blog posts just from the events of the past two and a half weeks and I’m sure that I will share various things in detail in the near future. (I would've written more today but I had to first sort through a few hundred emails this morning...) So many things have taken place in a short time and much is still marinating in my heart and mind.
I am blown away at all the Lord has done – not just in the past few weeks, but throughout this entire year. The title of my first blog post of 2012 was Think Big. That was the message ringing loudly in my spirit. I had no idea what that meant, but I just knew I needed to think bigger...
“Though I am not at all clear on what God has
planned for 2012, I know that, because He is a big God,
I am anticipating greatness and positioning myself for big things. Will there be moments of difficulty in the new year? Absolutely. But in all the difficulties prior,
I’ve seen my big God show up so
He’s guaranteed to do it again.”
(Think Big, January 1, 2012)
God was preparing me for what was to come. There certainly were moments of difficulty this year. Immense difficulty. But in every circumstance, God has been near, showing Himself to be faithful in greater measures. There have also been moments of great blessings, far beyond anything I could’ve asked for or imagined. In both the good and the not-so-good, I have come to see and know my big God in a bigger way.
I have a lot I'll be writing about in the next few days and weeks - blessings, confirmations, and new endeavors. I've only just begun to really process them all but I'm eager to share what God is doing. In the interim, I found today to be the perfect day to go back and read that post from the beginning of the year. I sit back and marvel at the greatness of my God...
Take a moment and reflect on God's greatness. How have you experienced Him in a greater way recently?
