There haven't been any words flowing here on these pages the past few months...
Silence. Ponderings. Questions. and Sortings... have all been happening in this, this heart of mine.
Do you ever feel the need to step back a bit?
And wonder if you'll let someone down in the middle of re-evaluation?
Words draw me. Stories are powerful.
Words have such power and meaning and depth.
And because of that they bring a tremendous blessing or depth of hurt.
I have been mentored, encouraged, and convicted by many of another's words and would like to pass that gift along to you.
I found myself, in the midst of writing, having that my focus instead of what really needed to be... Jesus. The One who life is really all about... Who He is and the work he is continuing.
Phil. 2:13 for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.
Words are mentors and writers the instrument, through which they are shared.
Only as I live and write out of my love for Jesus, will you be truly and life-giving-ly blessed. (not a word, I know :))
So, I turn to the Life-Giver. The One who knows your heart and mine.
I want to share pieces of my journey and story and I want to hear yours. For isn't it only as we walk together in the hard and the easy, the joys and the sorrows that the melody of our hearts is deeply heard and felt?
But most of all, I want us to see and know Jesus. The Life-Giver.
The musician who plays a melody in the lives and hearts of those of us, mere humans.
Maybe today, you too, need to take a step back. To re-evaluate. To reconnect with the Life-Giver and Musician of your story.
The world will go on. That's okay.
More importantly is your connection to the Vine, the Life-Giver; for only out of that will your heart truly find peace and be at rest.
And out of that, fruit will blossom.
And the sweet melody will sound.
