This morning I feel refreshed. Charged. Ignited? Not even sure what that word means, let me look it up…
(Haha I just looked it up and had to laugh a little bit)
I’ve been thinking a little bit on the “why” behind this journal a little more in depth.
“Why” did it begin?
I know I’ve written a little about this before, but the Lord led me to it, and I really didn’t even understand why. After the Lord spoke some things to me in a very interesting way, I heard “Lifeinthesecretplace.com” and I was like, “hmmm… where did that come from? God was that You?” Before that phrase and link came to my mind, I had a thought of starting an online journal to be able to share things, that’s all I knew. I sat on that until I knew what the next steps would be. That’s when the name and the link came, and that’s when I went onto GoDaddy.com and did a search, you know, just in case it should be available, and… wow, okay…. it was actually available. I knew in that moment that it was meant for me.
But that’s all I knew. 🙂
I still don’t understand where it’s going. All I know is that I am to keep writing as long as there is something He gives me to write about each day.
That’s all I know at this point. This “girl who is not really nor technically a writer” is supposed to write and ramble on a platform where the whole world can see, well if they should want to see it at least. Okay, God. Haha
But this past week the Lord has highlighted a couple of things to me, or maybe I should say reminded me of a couple of things.
He’s reminded me of how journaling is a way for me to see what the Lord has done, and to see what He will do again and again. I can see and be reminded of His faithfulness.
When I document what the Lord does, and when I document what I’m going through, the prayers I am presenting to Him, the situations I am dealing with –everything… this gives the Lord the opportunity to remind me of what He’s done, His faithfulness to answer my prayers, to resolve my impossible situations, to take me through the trials. To do the things that only HE can do. This reminder gives me the hope for what He is going to do.
A prayer that I feel is almost constantly on my heart these days is,
“Lord I thank you for what You’ve done,
I thank you for what You are doing,
and I thank You for what You will do.”
I have this feeling that the Lord is going to do something.
I have this feeling that the Lord is already doing something.
I don’t know what that is yet, I don’t really even have a clue, but it’s “something” and you know what, I’m just going to keep taking steps until I get to that “something” that He’s wanting to do.
That’s all I can do.
All I know is that when He does do something, I want to be able to look back and see His fingerprints all over it. Maybe others will need to see them too.
Wow, I feel kind of vulnerable in writing this. I had better click “post” before I change my mind. 🙂
