If there’s one thing the Lord has been teaching me about lately, it is His faithfulness. How it is so evident in every single moment of my life, big and small; it is so cool for me to look back and see the way that He has flawlessly orchestrated every single detail of my life for His glory. Even when I can’t see Him moving at all, He is always working things together for His glory. In everything. He is faithful. That is so amazing!!
So here’s my little life update: In August I graduated from college a year early. At that point I really didn’t have much of an idea of what I was going to be doing next. But I can honestly say that the Lord has been so faithful in guiding my decisions and leading me, sometimes without me even realizing it. He used a time of waiting that could have been so frustrating and instead He taught me so much about intentional prayer and about who He is. SO. In January I’m going to be moving to Birmingham! I don’t exactly know where I’ll be living yet, but I’m trusting that God will provide. I’m going to be starting seminary through Southeastern at the Church at Brook Hills, earning a M.A. in Missions. I am so excited about what the Lord is going to do during this time of my life and I am so excited to continue to trust in His faithfulness.
“But as for me, I will always have hope, I will praise You more and more. My mouth will tell of Your righteousness, of Your salvation all day long, though I know not its measure” – Psalm 71:14-15
I don’t know if I’ve posted this verse already, but I don’t care, it’s wonderful, and to me it’s such a beautiful illustration of how important it is to praise His name and proclaim His righteousness, even though I have no idea how great it is, having complete confidence in His perfect faithfulness, even though I can’t even see it yet. I will admit, sometimes this whole “not-having-any-idea-what-my-future-looks-like” thing is terrifying. I get scared and I have a hard time trusting the Lord. But I thank God that He is firm and He is faithful even when I am not. He can always be trusted.
“Find rest, O my soul, in God alone, my hope comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.” – Psalm 62:5-6
He is my rock. I will not be shaken.
