Who Are You Living For?

I am who I am.

I am who You created me to be.

Who You created me to be is all You require of me.

As You sculpted this body with your hands,

You knew every day, every step, every breathe I would take.

It is You who set in motion the direction of my life and pre-ordained my purpose.

So then as I live each day it is by the standard of Your perfect will that I compare the outcome.

I do not need to look to the left or to the right.

I do not need to tune my ear to the endless input from both well-wishers and those who would criticize.

I look to You, the author and perfector of my faith.

For it is in You that I live and move and have my being.

It is You who works in me to will and to do Your good pleasure.

And it is in You that I find all I need for life and godliness.

It is in You, it is through You, and it is for You that I live.

I’m Back

I have not posted in…well since I can remember. I’ve let my writing go by the wayside but have in recent days been convicted that God gave me a story and He wants me to share it, if for no other reason than so the ones I leave behind someday will hear my story in the way that I intend it to be told. A wise woman told me a while back “Write things down for the next generation.” I’ve been doing that in journals but I think it’s time to share on broader scale again.

A lot has changed in my life since my last post. I’ve been through several years of physical illness that only recently I am finally coming back from and am able to live more fully and normally again. It’s not something I’ve shared with many people and don’t really feel the need to share details of. But the one thing I will share is that I have become very appreciative of the ability to do every day normal things like other people pain free. God is faithful and I am grateful that He is the Great Physician.

Both of my children are now married with children. My beautiful daughter Danielle has two adorable twin daughters. They are miracle babies and that’s a story I’ll share at a future date. My son is walking out his calling as a pastor. He is now a youth pastor at a wonderful church and just weeks ago had a beautiful baby girl. And I am loving the Nonna life.

I have been through the hardest trials of my life since my last post, the greatest disappointments and hurts, but also experienced the greatest joys and the most freedom I have ever experienced. In posts to come I will share some of both the sorrows and joys. So stay tuned to future posts for the continuing story of what God has been up to in the life of this daughter of the King.
