God, coming on strong...

The Lord has been making Himself known to me in a strong way. From reading scriptures, hearing sermons and receiving words of the day, friends writing letters and giving gifts, God is making His presence known to me. I stand in awe of what He is saying. I am in a time of new beginnings, I have known that for a while but God will not let me escape it. At George's funeral my nephew approached me and said, " I know this seems like the end but it is just a new beginning." How sweet but little did he know how profound that statement would be. Last night as I was praying, I asked the Lord to speak to me through His word. I felt led to read Isaiah 43 and 44. WOW From the first verse I began crying because I knew the Lord had led me there. Then in verse 19 I read "See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland." I began crying even harder because our precious Lord let me know He knows right where I am. The ministering of His Holy Spirit is so intimate. The sense of security, and knowing that my life is in His hands, my future is in His hands. There is no better place to be. George would have it no other way. He would want us living, fulfilling God's purposes for our lives, and advancing the kingdom. It is about eternity. God so desires to be involved in every area of our lives. Not just the things we consider spiritual, He wants all of us. He deserves all of us because He bought us with His precious blood. Lord you have it all. We are yours.

Yes Lord!!! Praise the Name of the Lord in all circumstances of our lives. Even the "High Praises" come in our deepest pits! He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, ALL that we ask or think according to His promises towards us!!!!

We are indeed not alone...the heavenly host of angels are in position, guiding, ministering along with the Wisdom and voice of the Holy Spirit to us.

He will direct your steps Robin! The message and landscape that unfolds in this next phase of life will draw many to Christ. Many will be encouraged and begin to lift their Hopes and faith up high!

The restoration of FAITH in Christ must be restored for His mighty outpour. I am feeling and experiencing the effects too! Yes, Lord!!!

I love you sister and I am humbly honored to know You, Lauren, Bryan and your extended family! I am soooo excited about your journey!
