Good Morning from the road! Or should I say “from the camper”? We’re staying in a campground today while on location for an editorial assignment.
I think it’s the first morning in over 100 days that I’ve not sat at my dining room table to write in my journal.
I so love sitting at that spot, I so love consistency and my routines, but I’m learning to be okay with change. I know the Lord will meet me where ever I go because He is always with me.
I don’t have my favorite lamp to sit by, and I don’t get to see the beautiful sunrise from where I am sitting, but those things are just things that aren’t really important. Yes, they are inspiring, but I know that I can sit here with my iPad in the complete darkness and know that He is with me, He is speaking to me. I don’t need fancy things. I don’t even need to write on here every day, I can just write in my personal journal. Yet, the Lord gives me a way to write on here every day. Until He says to stop, I’m going to do my best to keep writing on here every day.
I still don’t know where this online journal is going, and I still don’t quite know the purpose of it, but I think I’ll find out one of these days.
Anyway, I’m encouraged this morning. I feel like the Lord is leading me into a peaceful understanding of some things. I can’t see everything yet, I don’t even know anything more than I did yesterday, but it’s a sort of “understanding” and a “peace” in my spirit. A peace that I desperately needed to grasp hold of.
Today I have a different kind of knowing that He is leading the way in my life and I am taking steps. I can trust Him and know that He is leading me and guiding me, and my steps have a purpose. He’s not going to leave me. This allows me to let go and release any burden I’ve been trying to carry for myself.
This morning I am encouraged even though I am no farther into “life” than my steps have taken me from yesterday into today.
Well, I’m going to get ready to go out and venture around this town today and capture some photos for an editorial assignment.
