I’m not going to bore you with all the details of my summer, but I will tell you that I am feeling fantastic in spite of how much we’ve had going on. In all honesty, I fully expected to crash after June. I prepared myself emotionally and mentally for a big slip backwards. But guess what? It didn’t happen. I can only give the Lord the glory for the strength I was given and continue to have. It is truly miraculous!
There were several things I did on faith over the summer, with the knowledge that it would put demands on me that had been absolutely impossible for me to meet in the past 3 years and I wondered if I’d be able to meet them even now. But when God prompted my heart, it was an opportunity for me to close my eyes and fall into His perfect and trustworthy hands and trust that whatever happened, however I ended up feeling, everything would be as it should. And so I took those little steps and waded in, choosing to focus on the joy of serving the Lord instead of the fear of the what ifs. The things God gave me the ability to do seem very small when compared to what others are able to do, but for me, knowing where I started from – that bedridden, almost-dead state – the strength, stamina, and energy God gave me are nothing short of a miracle.
And truly all that can be said is…
“The Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.” Psalm 118:23
I will be back very soon! I’m in the process of adjusting to feeling better and to changes in our family’s life. All good stuff, just finding that balance that is so important in each of our lives. I’m still working on music and will be sharing new content in the near future. I look forward to writing more about all that has been happening in my life and what God has been doing. I’m so excited to share new music with you and all that good stuff!!
In awe of God,
