This beginning weekend of spring break 2014 (my last spring break of college, I might add) has been characterized by catch up time with the fabulous women of my family, plenty of laughs, and lots of shopping.
I’ve also spent some time pondering about Jesus. I found a book yesterday at a thrift store and cannot wait to start reading it.
Spring break has been going on for only two full days and I already feel Jesus beckoning my soul to really know him, to truly enjoy Him, to worship Him.
My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the Lord; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God. Psalms 84:2
There is a special relationship between me and God, all because of His grace and mercy in giving me Jesus. I forget the possibility of this intimacy, the good gift it is, when so many other things are grabbing for my heart’s affections.
And my heart can feel the distance. The feeling of being distracted, of being even a little numb to His presence. But there He remains. Close by, waiting in Love for me to remember.
Tonight I am thankful for a powerful, infinite God who continually desires a relationship with my sinful self.
Tonight I am thankful for restful weekends away.
Tonight I am thankful I have a sister.
Tonight I am thankful for the provision of God — provision that is always enough, and truly good.
