As we age....it's just a dance!!!
This morning in my quiet time with The Good Shepherd, He gently guided me to a passage that caused me to be utterly broken with JOY.
We cry out....God where are you?
Why have you forsaken me?
Why did you lead me here?
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and the hills before you shall
breaks forth into singing,
and all the trees of the field shall
clap their hands."
Then I heard the Holy Spirit tell me to not stop. READ verse 13!
Instead of the briers shall grow the myrtle;
and it shall make a name for the Lord,
an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off."
You see, we bought a pine tree farm and not only does it have pines, it has waxed myrtles.
Do you see?
Doesn't that sound like the Israelites?
Trying to find our place here in RURAL East Texas has just taken 3 years.
We came back to the little church where I attended for 3 months before The Hired Hand arrived in Texas. I think as a couple we had to attend several other congregations before we could find the place God has for us both. And let's face it, I'm the one who has struggled so greatly with this sadness....being married to a melancholy left brain aspie, he's just as happy as a clam being alone...but I'm not....so really, I'm the The Who counts. Just kidding....but The Hired Hands knows, I need to find a place where my heart is filled with love, kindness and service.
and He will guide them to springs of living water,
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
