It shouldn’t be mind-blowing.

So it’s been a while. I know.

Sometimes that happens…

Life (or lack there of, possibly) gets in the way.

Or you just feel that there’s nothing to be shared. I sit down to write, and nothing comes out.

Or I’ll write, and then there it sits in my drafts folder, never to see the light of day.

God has been doing things, for sure. He’s at work, always.

But sometimes it can be hard to see. It can be hard to quantify. Hard to identify as “progress.”

But He IS there.

Always.

And He is so good.

He’s showing me how to be fulfilled in Him. How amazing it is to be in that place of surrender.

He’s bringing me into honest, real, and uplifting community.

He’s opening my eyes to the big picture.

Reminding me how one day, I will stand before Him, and the only things that will matter to me are:

Did I love Him well?

Did I serve Him the way He asked me to?

Those other things that I get so concerned about in this life won’t even be a passing thought.

My only regrets will be centered around not having known Him better.

This shouldn’t be a mind-blowing revelation, but it has rocked my world, a little bit.

It’s made me uncomfortable in the best possible way.

Sometimes that’s exactly what you need.

And I don’t know why I’m surprised, because obviously… He knows.

He’s so good.

“By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with him, make us fit for him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that’s not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.”

Romans 5:1-2 (The Message)
