PART ONE AND A HALF
just two things - not fully part number two - put two things I felt I should share.
1) There's a stirring in my soul. A hunger arising. I'm excited - because it's an answer to a prayer I have had for a while. I am thirsty for the Word. It has been a long time since I've desired to hold it in my hand and partake of it's life.
2) You know the song "Blessed Be Your Name" ? of course =) It first came out when a friend died and so it has always evoked those feelings - you give [life] and you take [death] away. But this weekend new understanding arose; God gives and takes away a lot more than just life - He gives us ministries and then moves us. He gives us a home and then He takes that away. And most importantly He takes away our sin!! I understood in a new way - this journey we're on, has a lot of coming and going - and in the midst of it, no matter how I feel, God deserves the Glory. He is good. His love endures. His Name is to be praised.
