Something New

"Draw near to Me with a thankful heart, 
aware that your cup is overflowing with blessings ... 
You will never be in control of your life circumstances, 
but you can relax and trust in My control." 
(Jesus Calling)

"For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun!
Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland."
(Isaiah 43:19)

"Instead of striving for a predictable, safe lifestyle, 
seek to know Me in greater depth and breadth ... 
Be on the lookout for all I have prepared for you."
(Jesus Calling)

Thanking God for the sweet blessings of a three-month Sabbatical/Time Off with my dear husband (celebrating 40 years of ministry) - and looking forward with trust and anticipation as we step into this next chapter of our lives. Finding it hard to leave this place of rest and refreshment - yet thankful for His promises, watching for all that lies ahead.
