So I have decided to embrace the "and suddenly." I keep telling God, "I am an Oak tree!" And He keeps telling me, "I am the potter you are the clay." I love the journey He has taken our family on and I wouldn't trade a second of what it has taught us. Sometimes though I feel like He has to take me around the mountain more than once to get the lesson to sink in. I am hopeful in 2014 I am a better listener to His plans, more faithful in the discipline of studying His words and more open to the prompting of His spirit.
That is my resolution. To get out of the way and let the Lord lead. That's a tall order for a control freak like me.
Ok, ah ha moment! Maybe that's why He keeps dealing me the "and suddenly"!
Thank goodness He loves us in spite of ourselves. Happy 2014 y'all.
May your "and suddenly's" draw you more and more to His loving side.
