today i read this : “You have no idea of where or how God is going to engineer your future circumstances, and no knowledge of what stress and strain is going to be placed on you either at home or abroad. And if you waste your time in overactivity, instead of being immersed in the great fundamental truths of God’s redemption, then you will snap when the stress and strain do come. But if this time of soaking before God is being spent in getting rooted and grounded in Him, which may appear to be impractical, then you will remain true to Him whatever happens.” this excerpt is from Oswald Chambers’ My Utmost For His Highest’ October 19 entitled ‘The Unheeded Secret’.

just what i needed to read…i am soaking before God. And I have no idea where or how God is going to engineer my future circumstances. -c

i’m burdened. i need to find a healthy, spirit-filled, mission-minded, Jesus-loving, Gospel-sharing, body-connecting church here. i know where to find that in places i am not. a sweet friend of mine shared this with me just now, Matthew 11:28-30 28“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Thank you Lord, that you care for me and my pursuits. this is still a journey, even when i find myself back on a familiar road. -c
