It’s a new year and many have been sharing vision, dreams, goals etc. as some kind of guide in an attempt to follow a new path for a new year….great idea. I, however, didn’t have anything that I felt warranted transcription. Nothing pithy came to mind so I wandered from this self-imposed mental assignment and indulged in a backwash of despair instead. Dumb! I act dumb and think dumb sometimes as do you I’m sure. I had a day that, not only did I not want to write about goals, dreams, visions etc., I didn’t even want to write out a grocery list!
The interesting thing, as I reflect on that day, is that while I was in the midst of this drowning sensation accompanied by crying, wailing, screaming, and anger I could not drown out the still some voice of God reassuring me that He had my back! I wanted and needed my time of tantrum all the while knowing I would come out the other side with my hope and faith still intact. I’m glad God seems to indulge our dips into childhood. He never gets nervous, or concerned whether I will come out of it this time…He knows!!!
Some inspiring lyrics from Francesca Battistelli in her song He Knows My Name…
He calls me chosen, free forgiven, wanted, child of the King,
His forever, held in treasure…
I am loved
