I am full of hope and dreams and joy. I marvel at what God is doing and am brimming over with excitement about what He has yet to do.
At the same time, however, I am overwhelmed with sadness and grief and pain. I am left not knowing exactly what to do, except pray.
Let's start with the good stuff first...
I can feel God's presence and power at work in my life. He is on the move and bringing people into my life in ways I never imagined. He is blessing me with new friendships and countless opportunities to impact people all over the world and change their lives in so many ways. I believe He is taking my dreams - even the big, wild, crazy ones - and fulfilling them for His glory. I read a verse recently and it seemed as if God was whispering to my heart, "This, THIS, this is what I am doing in your life right at this very time. Keep trusting Me. Keep living by faith. If you think what I've done so far is good, just you wait. I'm just getting started..."
