Does your faith give you wings? That’s how I wound up here! Welcome to our new home on the web. I hope it is just as warm and fuzzy as the old one, but perhaps a bit easier to navigate. After lots of prayers and discussion we decided it was time for a move. And with a huge leap of faith, I tackled the most head splitting bit of internet work I have done in years. And here we are.
God provides. God is good. And still we sometimes lose faith. We forget to whom we belong. We forget He who created the stars and the heavens also created us. We forget that Yahweh made us mothers and He will qualify us for that which He calls us to do. Whatever and wherever it may be.
2014 is my year for radical YES. Yes to playtime when the dishes still need doing. Yes to turning off the phone at night to enjoy focused intentional time with my sweetheart. Yes to more messes. Yes to more pillow fights. Yes to mud puddles and rain boots. Yes to learning how to use my espresso machine so we stop spending so much at Starbucks. Yes to quiet time with my God when I can feel the pull of “all” that needs to be done. Yes to growing my faith and trusting God and finding my wings. Yes to simplify. Yes to surrender. Yes to sacrifice. Yes to so much less “me” and so much more of Him.
In the last week, I have been tested and fallen short and stressed, but again, I am thankful for new. New mercies each and every morning. New curriculum pieces for this season. New and old friends here and offline. New challenges and new opportunities to faithfully fly wherever He calls me.
What is the “new” you are thankful for? Leave it in the comments so we can all encourage and support one another!
