wind of change…

“…the storms are raging on the rolling sea
and on the highway of regret
the wind of change are blowing wild and free
you ain’t seen nothing like me yet…”

I can remember not too long ago, driving on a beautiful September day…  windows down, holding my best friends hand, listening to this song and tears flowing down my face.

God can and will use anything to speak to our souls, our hearts…  It wasn’t Adele’s swooning voice I heard but The Comforter and His assurance.

I knew the seasons were changing, blowing wild and free…  And I knew God had greater things in store.

God is so faithful and so good.  His presence has been so real.  I wouldn’t trade a moment, a day, a tear…  All things always working together for His glory!  All things.

I know He has always been there in my life…  BUT His fingerprint has never been so clear in all my life.  I guess He really is opening my eyes…  Everywhere I turn, I see HE has been there…  Orchestrating, like pieces in a puzzle…  A friendship, a call, a wrong turn, a text, a plant, a meal,  a sign, a trip, a comment…  {you get where I am going}  I see Him, I hear Him.  It is the most rewarding and satisfying feeling to know He cares so greatly for me, that He would worry with the little things.  What blessings He will pour down upon us…  How our cup will overflow…   If we just look for Him, we will see Him.  He is there.

Change is not always welcome…  but it can be so good.  It seems so many things have changed in my life lately…  But such assurance and peace knowing they are orchestrated by Him.  How can we fail when He leads!  Did you hear that…

How can we fail where God leads?

My stories might all sound crazy…  Sharing this amazing God-filled weekend or this God-ordained friendship or this Divine appointment…  They may sound too much…  but this is what He is doing in my life and I just can’t keep it to myself!  I have to share how good and faithful He has been to me! I just have to tell.

For so long He has just laid upon my heart a yearning to love and encourage others, specifically women.  I have known it…  And when these amazing women were placed in my life… I knew!  I just knew it…  it was Him.

Sharing your heart and your faith…  Encouraging one another…  Friendship.  Community.  It is what He knows we need.  It is so good for us, as Christians…  CHRIST-followers!  To be yoked with like-minded people…

As always, there was a need and He provided.  It is really that simple.  Really.  Again God has used these essential oils to bring me and my family nearer to Him.  Knowing I am giving my family a healthy alternative, is a relief.  It gives me peace.  Knowing we are trying to take care of the body He has given us so we can be a better body of Christ, together!  It’s a groovy thing!!!

So, yes… If you ask me…  I will tell you that for me He is in EVERYTHING!  He is in the little things, the crazy trips to the country, the barn wood, homeschool, women’s ministry…  He is there, just look for Him!  A GREAT nugget taken away from here...  We can do the natural and GOD will do the SUPERNATURAL!  Look for Him!!  Move, walk through the doors He is opening…  you do the natural and He will do the SUPERNATURAL!

Things are crazy…  changes blowing wild and free and I KNOW we ain’t seen nothing yet!

Behold, these are but the outskirts of his ways, and how small a whisper do we hear of him! But the thunder of his power who can understand?”  Job 26:14
