I do love writing devotionals. I think about it every day and seek after God to inspire me on what I should write about. However, this week has been incredibly difficult for me. I went through several things that caused me great anxiety. When I wrote the last devotional, I wasn't in the right mind and my heart wasn't in the right place. I felt very messy about what I wrote, so I deleted it.
I am in awe because God is a huge mystery to me. It seems like I keep going after him and there is yet new things I have never discovered about God before. I have been a Christian since I was 10 and I feel like I am finding him for the first time even after thirteen years. God has no limit! I try writing devotionals and just grasping what he is trying to tell me. I am just baffled at times.
I saw this verse (thanks Johnny) and it describes exactly what I am trying to say.
God said, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9
The more we seek him, the further and further we get, and the more we realize that he is far beyond where we can ever reach. It's stunning!
I know I am rambling, but it is such a revelation to me! I had to share it with my dear families and friends. The reason why I absolutely love writing devotionals is because of this truth that God has promised,
"So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Isaiah 55:11
God's word will sink into our hearts and take root. If I just spread his word across to as many people as I can, it will not return unto the Lord void. God's word does not leave him empty handed. If I can have a small part in that, I will rejoice!!!
Okay, I am zipping my mouth tonight! Love, Charlene♥ ((mwah))
