Author of our Story...

Author of my Story?


Can you imagine?

The Creator of the Universe and all that is in it... the One Who says "be" and it "is"!.... the Maker of man and Who breathed His very breath into him.... He knows the plans HE has for us...... and EVERY DAY (every single day!) ordained for us were WRITTEN IN HIS BOOK before even one of them came to be!

WHO can fathom?

I love a song that Ronnie Freeman sings (that is also a favorite song of my daughter's), 

From Glory to Glory

Author of my story
Shepherd of my heart
You take every season
to show me more of who You are
You are perfect passion
Heaven’s holy fire
You are Father, Sovereign
who satisfies our deep desires.

From glory to glory,
Lord, You lead us Home
From glory to glory,
faithful through it all
You are my Song;
You are my Light
You are the Love
leading my life
From glory to glory

You’re my Rock, my Refuge
A sacred hiding place
I know You are for me,
so I don’t have to be afraid
A constant invitation
To know You and believe
You fill my every longing;
Your love that won’t stop drawing me

You are my Song;
You are my Light
You are the Love
leading my life

From glory to glory......

You are my Song... You are my Light... You are the Love leading my Life...... YOU are MY Song.......... You are MY Light.... YOU are the LOVE LEADING MY Life..... Wow! From glory to glory!

Author of MY story!

Shepherd of MY heart!

You take E~V~E~R~Y SEASON to show ME more of WHO YOU are!

I know that You are FOR me so I don't have to be afraid!

Woe! Who is like the God we serve that loves us so and is so into our lives? Who cares like He does? Loves unfailingly with such perfection? Is ever Faithful, even when we're not?

God's plan is already in place. What He's ordained is already written. We have the sweetest privilege (even when hard) to walk it out. Seriously! It's already been written... and now we watch and participate as it plays out! Kind of wild to think of it, isn't it!

Author of My Story!

And when God writes the book….. His script is always full of adventure, anticipation, and wonder… and it’s written so that it all things (no matter what they are!) work out for good for those that love Him. God is so GOoD at working ALL of our ALLs and EVERYthings out for GOoD and for His Glory if we're willing to let Him! There are such rewards in the suffering if you look to see them! He'll use any and everything. NO-thing is in vain! How’s that for an Author of Life and the One that created us! He KNOWS... while we mostly speculate.

I haven't a clue what lies ahead for 2011. I'm amazed already that God has written me in it! And I know He knows. And I know that it all has purpose and reason. I pray today that I allow Him to use all the part that has me in it all to His Glory. May I praise Him and honor Him and worship Him with all of my being!!! May I BE a skin that Jesus lives in and that shines everyday displaying His Splendor!

"And God said "Let there be light," and there was" - Gen 1:3. Oh Lord, may there be Your Light in me!
