Day 234 of Giving Thanks

Restoration was the word search done this morning, and in the process of praying, contemplating and deciphering what God has for me today – I had to stop and start again. He forced me to face a few things that I have worked very hard to avoid.

My personal journey with God has shown me that it is truly is me doing what He set out for me to do – and regardless of my desire to have someone beside me in a certain quest, it is just not what He has laid out. And, for many years I have fought and argued with Him over this. And, in the process I have lost precious time and energy. But this past month has clearly defined my role in reaching my dream. And, I am good with that. Today, I embark on an area which is completely new for me. This new role lifts my dependence on others and forces me to lean completely on God. A freedom which I have never felt before, a victory is now visible for me in this journey. My journey brings me to people – and in that - my personal fight is to know everyone, so everyone can know Him. To shine my light where ever I go; make it so bright that it takes time for their eyes to adjust to the glory that surrounds me.

Isaiah 61 states, “The Year of the LORD's Favor”. And, today I am claiming this phrase. This is my year, Lord, grant me favor in reaching my dream. Keep me steady in Your word for me.

Father, I am humbled today by how graceful You truly are – and I am grateful for the wisdom that You decided to pour into me. I look to You more now than ever, and I am more free through dependence on You than ever before. In this time of ashes to restoration, I seek Your face, the peace that comes from knowing You and as others look into my eyes, they see a soul owned by You, and as I look onto the world, I pray my actions attract toward You.
