Reckless Restlessness

Oh how often a restlessness of heart seems to echo through me! This restless is birthed not from discontent but from hope and anticipation of God's coming activity. How blessed we are in the step by step Journey He has us on. I am overwhelmed to tears at the thought of how and who He intersects for greater glory than all I could have asked or imagined. Past friends and new faces; old relationships and ones still forming; family kin and future dreams colliding... He has a way of paralling the lives and hearts of those who seek Him. I am beyond grateful for the intersections and interruptions that have marked this year, the one past, and coming ones ahead. Thank you Divine Interrupter! His interruptions are glorious and illogical in nature, but later we will understand what He is doing as stated in John 13:7. How beautiful are the hands of my Lord and His activity on behalf of this little maiden.

  1. I love this! In my new little group we are studying the book of Jonah in a study by Priscilla Shirer, specifically about "the interrupted life". The equation she gives over, and over, and over in the study is:

    ~Insignificant task + insignificant person = interruption
    ~Significant task + significant person = divine intervention
    ~Divine Intervention + Yielded Submission = Eternal Significance

    It's been such an amazing reminder of everything the Lord has done in my own life and in lives of those around me to show how much He cherishes us and uses even the "interruptions" to show how great His love is! I have learned to long for the divine interventions looking towards the eternal significance.. I hope all is well for you! :) Miss you, sister!!!
