True Blessings

God has blessed me so much in my life. I have been so sheltered from such hardships and undeservedly so. I am in a time of celebration in my life. Everything is good. Not that there aren’t bad things or hard things happening, it’s just that God has flooded me with the good things. I don’t know how to explain it, I certainly don’t deserve it, but He sees fit to shower me with great blessings each day. Every day I wake up beside my best friend and the love of my life. I am so grateful for this great jewel He has given me.

I realize that it is summer and this is typically a time of joy. Such joy as a child has, thats the good stuff, the good stuff I am feeling right now. The greens are greener, the rainy days seem beautiful and true. The sunny days are an obvious sign of His gift of life to me.

What a time of celebration I’ve been through this summer. I know to truly enjoy these days as they don’t always last. I realize that everything is for a season, so while I fill myself with this joy in preparation for the next season, Lindsay has helped me to truly embrace this season and all of its bounty. I have, for the first time, been able to really live in this moment. And while that helps for things of this world to seem sweeter, it is also a help for my times with God. I am able to sit still and hear what he has for me. I am able to be in the very moment and let his presence wash through me the way He wants it to. Every encounter leaves me a changed man. Every time I sit still, He moves me exactly to where He wants. I surely don’t have it all figure out, that is the beauty of it all. I just ask Him to be in me more, for Him to take over more and He does. For whatever reason He sees fit, He talks to me and moves me in the most gentle and powerful way I’ve ever known.

What a sweet love
