I’ve been going back through my journals a lot lately. Not really to think back on the past, it’s more of a “connecting the dots”, and it’s happening in such a big way right now.
It’s taking what I noted in the past, what I felt was something from the Lord, and connecting it with things that are happening now. Confirmations. So many pieces are fitting into place, it’s almost more than I can fit onto a journal page right now. I’m having to write more in bullet form just getting the main points down.
I still can’t see a clear picture in this puzzle, but I know the pieces are coming together, and at a rapid pace compared to life before.
I love how the Lord fits things together for us in such a personal way…. it’s the kind of thing where in the moment something new begins to fit together, and I’m just in awe….
I’m in awe because I remember where I’ve been, I remember what I asked the Lord to do, that “little” thing (to Him) and then seeing what the Lord is in fact doing and how it’s so much MORE than what I asked Him to do, so much more than what I ever expected, so much bigger than what I can comprehend. I don’t even know what I’m saying right now, honestly.
It’s like inside I can start to see a bit more of the “bigness” or maybe it’s “depth” of what the Lord is doing, a kind of fullness that is starting to form –the only thing is, my mind can’t wrap around it, it’s just this thing that I know He’s doing. If that makes any sense at all…
I’ll tell you what it does, it makes me feel so taken care of by the Lord. I know that He always has kept me, but to see these intensely intricate things that He’s doing, that He’s done…. to know that I am covered and kept by Him, to know and experience Jeremiah 29:11…
“For I know the plans I have for you.” – Jeremiah 29:11
Yes, He does.
By the way, I just finished the very last page of my journal, and my new one has Jeremiah 29:11 on the front cover.
Interesting how my last one said, “Nothing is impossible with God” and it actually said that on the header of every single page, a reminder to me every day.
My new one has a different scripture on the header of each page. I fully expect Him to use those verses in my every day. I love how He’s so personal like that. So intricate. So ready to fill our lives with His goodness, and His kindness — all these reminders and encouragement. Lovingly leading my every step, every day.
So this morning I am overflowing with thankfulness, so much so that it literally is spilling from my eyes. ??
Thank you, Lord. I still don’t know what You’re up to, but I’m excited for You to keep showing me these pieces of the puzzle. I know You have good things in store for those who love You! I am learning that You are so much more than I ever hoped for.
