Hopeful Anticipation

I am here!

Talk about taking a long break from writing which isn't usually like me
I love blogging and being able to write my thoughts down
To be able to share and express what is going on through this journey God has me on

To say I have a lot going on is an understatement
The major theme these past two weeks has been TRUST
Trust God
Trust His path
Trust His planned purpose for my life  

But He wants us to do more than just trust Him
We are called to trust with hopeful anticipation

"Surrender yourself to the Lord, and wait patiently for Him.” 
Psalm 37:7

Surrendering your life means:

- Following God’s lead without knowing where he’s sending you

- Waiting for God’s timing without knowing when it will come

- Expecting a miracle without knowing how God will provide

- Trusting God’s purpose without understanding the circumstances

Waiting on Me means directing your attention to Me in hopeful anticipation of what I will do next. It entails trusting Me with every fiber of your being, instead of trying to figure things out yourself. Waiting on Me is the way I designed you to live all day, every day. I created you to stay conscious of Me as you go about your daily duties. I have promised many blessings to those who wait on Me; renewed strength, living above one's circumstances, resurgence of hope, awareness of My continual Presence. Waiting on Me enables you to glorify Me by living in deep dependence on Me ready to do My will. It also helps you to enjoy Me, in My presence is fullness of Joy. 
- Jesus Calling

Notice that it says what HE will do
Not Jessie's next move, but His
I am need to hand over every part of my life
Not just my social life, or my work life but ALL areas
Big or small, God wants MY every detail to be entrusted to Him
 I am learning daily what it really means to be "continually conscious of Him"
Continually conscious that He is doing His work in every detail of my life

I am so blessed to live next to such an amazing, peaceful area of Greenlake
Spring is coming in Seattle and boy, does it get beautiful!
I needed to get away for a bit last Sunday so I walked over to the lake
I sat in the bleachers while listening to "All Sons & Daughters" Pandora station
(I highly recommend them for a Pandora station!)

And I just sat there
I soaked up the beauty of the lake
The beauty of worship music
The beauty of knowing my life is in His hands

 I know that life wont always be easy
Life can get ugly, hard and uncomfortable 
But if our God can create something as beautiful and peaceful as the sunset
Then I know He has something even more beautiful planned for His children

Let Go and Let God
