Day 434 of Giving Thanks

There are many times when I look at my life and I am in awe. Have you ever felt so defeated and overwhelmed that you did not know what to do? And, in a flash, you knew victory and were overwhelmed with joy? That is my life.

“LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness  you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.” ~Isaiah 25:1 (NIV)

In awe of the wonders that have been displayed – in awe of  the miracles that I have witnessed – in awe of the grace and forgiveness I have been given, and that sweeps through my being so often now.  I am in awe, of a mighty creator – of heaven and earth and me.

The awe of events and people revealed by God, even if “for my eyes only”, have drawn me into a life with Jesus – His purpose for my life – the guidance by the Holy Spirit, and every day I . And, in the process of living, I foresee many, many more revelations, many, many more wonders, many, many more miracles. .

“When times are good, be happy, but when times are bad, consider God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, a man cannot discover anything about his future.”  Ecclesiastes 7:14 (NIV)

My life has gone from pain and tragedy to a priceless tapestry of my life weaved beautifully by the hand of my mighty God. It is an amazing thing to know how wonderful I am because of who dwells in me. It is an amazing thing to know that wherever I am, He is already there, preparing the way.

“Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? "If I go up to the heavens, You are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there." ~Psalm 139:7-8 (NIV)

In the moments of being in His presence and His love for me, I am overwhelmed with desire to be more like Christ, more with Christ and dream about a lifetime with Christ. Father, thank You for my day – thank You for giving me purpose – thank You that in a flash, I can go for this earthly dwelling to the dwelling of my heart, my permanent home with You.
