I am overwhelmed by the Lord. I can't wrap my finite mind around the fact that the God of the universe who desires my service to Him would in turn choose to serve and bless someone as unworthy as myself.
On my continual journey of healing, growing and learning here at Joshua, the Lord has revealed himself to me stronger than ever. The past two weeks have been filled with the most freedom I have ever felt in my walk with the Lord. I am reminded of Psalm 119:45, "I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts."
There is abundant freedom in response to the gospel and compliance to the precepts the Lord desires of us. This freedom requires submission and obedience from the darkest crevices of the heart. I have had to learn this the hard way (often times that's the only way for God to get through to me, hah) but when true obedience to what the Lord requires of us is sought, He instantly consumes every crevice of darkness an illuminates the heart with His glorious light.
Living life earnestly seeking full dependency on God is a rollercoaster ride! It is humbling and forces me to trust that what the Lord has for me is so much greater than anything I could imagine.
To sum it up, God has clearly revealed where it is that He wants me after Joshua. He has bestowed much compassion and undeserved blessing upon me through all of this. I am thrilled for what lies ahead.
Please be praying for me. Pray that the Lord continues to humble me however he has to do so. Also, be praying that I live for today. It's easy for me to get caught up in what the Lord wants to do next and forget what He is doing now.
Thanks for taking the time to read and be a blessing in my life. Feel free to get in contact with me. I would love to talk with anyone who takes the time to read my jumbled words.

2 Chronicles 16:9
"For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His."

Lord, allow my heart and those around me to be completely yours.
