I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
Have you ever opened the door of a dark room and wondered if there was anybody inside? I'm having that very same feeling right now. You open the door slowly at first to allow the light to spill in and reveal any hidden surprises.
"Hello...is anybody here??"
It's been over a year and a half since my last blog post.
It's been an interesting season. A season that I felt like God was saying, "This is a personal conversation between you and me...not something I'm ready for you to share with the world." Now, that's awkward, God. You know, I'm like an open book. You want ME to be quiet??
Most of you that know me, know that is a BIG deal. Talking is what I do. But, the quiet work I have felt happening behind the scenes has been more about healing and hoping again. Believing and becoming. Intentional and internal.
We all want God to do the 'big' and leave the internal alone. But, the greatest work, I believe, God does is in the quiet places...day by day...moment by moment. They aren't the big things that people notice...but, the small nudges that only God can orchestrate that make you whole again.
That's the kind of work that has been going as cobwebs populated the corners of this blog.
I'm not sure I've come away with any epiphany or grand lesson. Mostly, just the assurance that God is who he says He is and the promises that I've shared with others are true for me too.
So, if you've moved on to greener blogs, I completely understand. I can't promise a post every week...or even every month. But, this I do know: The growth that happens underground, the growth that nobody sees, those are the roots that hold on tight when the winds kick up.
I'm glad you're still here. I would love to hear what God is doing in your life.
