will you lay it down
and let it die?
It is in dying that we live.
It is in laying it down that we begin to see that God is God
and He satisfies.
I dreamed for a marriage that would honor Him.
but I had to lay it down.
I dreamed for a child in Ukraine.
But that dream had to die.
Empty arms and grieving I came home
The world calls our broken dreams – failures
but God sees them as the beginning of something new.
I’ve been crucified with Christ…. Galatians 2:20
Death proceeding life
My way being laid down at His Feet
Waiting and discovering that He is there when all else fails.
He is there when everything else crumbles at our feet.
Beginning to understand that His thoughts are not our thoughts.
His Way becoming mine.
Thy Will be done, Lord.
Peace and eventually a new direction.
Coming home with a precious little girl from Russia.
Opening a practice in my own community.
Making new friends.
Discovering that the God of New Beginnings does all things well in His Time.
Nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in Me.
Deep truths that continue to call me to laying down all of my dreams
and waiting upon Him.
and always His sweet Will.
