Psalm 37:4-"Delight yourself in The Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart."
I've now relocated to Oceanside, California. This is the place where I spent a majority of my youth. I graduated from Oceanside High in 1991. I attended Jefferson Junior High, San Rafael and North Terrace Elementary. I lived on the military base Camp Pendleton.
When The Lord moved me to see where the next phase would begin, I prayed for direction. As one home was taken away, I was directed to see where am I most happy. It didn't come easy, but I know I am ment to be back here. Not sure what I will be asked to do. I have a few talents. My heart is with my family, but my desires is for them to see me delighted using these skills with joy and passion, as promised by God. I honor Him and them by sharing and reaching my full potential. I'm scared but I know He is with me.
Reconsider a new perspective in your walk with The Lord. Someone very dear to me continually asks me, "How do you see the next scene in your movie (of life)?" I have been looking for a Biblical response. So this morning I pull out another book titled, Coming Home. Very appropriate considering my current life change and relocation to Southern California.
The first chapter, the opening verse. BAM! James 4:8. "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you."
Now you might think I'm deep and will interpret this in relation to my life journey. Not this time.
I spends my hours at my drawing table alone. How cool would it be to invite God to draw next to me? "Jesus, you mind photoshopping this for me, I don't think I'm getting the color right?" There are many parables in the Word, but I have to have an attitude aligned with the living Bible. God and I are a terrific team. I am drawing my pictures, but He is enhancing the lines. Not tracing, but giving my work unsurpassed favor.
This is a deviation from the promise to answer the Love Dare, but it spoke to me.
