Yet, there is no greater freedom than finding yourself at the foot of the cross, in the place where you are afraid to wait, where uncertainty and fear abound. That place is holy.
I'm learning living my daily life isn't boring; it's just Nazareth.
What in my life is keeping me from God the most?
I've believed the lie that I need to wait for the perfect situation to follow Jesus.
Lord knows I didn't want to slow down, so sometimes the Lord let me get sick so my body slows down so my spirit will.
I was reminded how my doubts, fears, insecurities, and misunderstandings of grace block my spirit from trusting in the abundance of good that God promises His children.
Plants bloom at different times. If every plant bloomed at the same time, we'd never be able to constantly enjoy the beauty of flowers. So, too, our lives bloom at different times, and I think in His infinite plan of love, God designs it that way so we can always have moments of joy, even in the midst of tragedy.
