unknowing-ness



Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God's presence. Ephesians 3:12  

so here i am. in a season of unknowing-ness.
nothing certain. nothing tangible to cling to. nothing clear on the horizon.
its a fuzz. its a blur. its the unknown.

it is humbling.

i am one part terrified. one part exhilarated.
the planner. the controller in me is being broken. it is being bent, and moved and molded and formed.
conformed to the will of my God.
praise be to Him that he loves me and gives grace enough to make me new. to make me His.
all over again.

i am learning the lessons.
to rest in His GRACE. not in myself or the things I do.
to trust in his provisions. not in my own abilities.
to humble myself in the midst of my own inadequacies.
to teach me to receive the pursuance and LOVE He has for me.
to see Himself in everything around me and in me.

i am here. i am living this adventure. in this valley. it is simple. and complicated. and good.

so very good.


TEACH ME YOUR DECREES, O LORD; I WILL KEEP THEM TO THE END. 
GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING AND I WILL OBEY YOUR INSTRUCTIONS; I WILL PUT THEM INTO PRACTICE WITH ALL OF MY HEART. 
MAKE ME WALK ALONG THE PATH OF YOUR COMMANDS, FOR THAT IS WHERE MY HAPPINESS IS FOUND. GIVE ME AN EAGERNESS FOR YOUR LAWS RATHER THAN A LOVE FOR MONEY. 
TURN MY EYES FROM WORTHLESS THINGS, AND GIVE ME LIFE THROUGH YOUR WORD. 
REASSURE ME OF YOUR PROMISE, MADE TO THOSE WHO FEAR YOU. 
HELP ME ABANDON MY SHAMEFUL WAYS; FOR YOUR REGULATIONS ARE GOOD. 

RENEW MY LIFE WITH YOUR GOODNESS.
PSALM 119:33-40


LOVE, 
MARCY
