This morning something happened that led me to think about the way God uses us if we allow Him to. When God moved Luke & I to the Cadillac area 4 years ago…it was so hard giving up what we had to give up but the answer was always “yes, God we are willing”… I believe God always has a purpose & not knowing what His purpose was never slowed us down from being willing… not that it was easy at the time. Anyway, getting back to this morning… we were able to see some of the seed we have been able to sow coming to harvest… it just thrills my heart to know that because we were willing… someone’s life was changed forever. Anything that we gave up means nothing compared to that one soul… just one makes it all worth it.
A song we sang in church this morning, called “Lead Me To the Cross” keeps going through my mind… the words say, “everything I once held dear, I count it all as loss…lead me to the cross where Your love poured out… bring me to my knees, Lord I lay me down… rid me of myself, I belong to You… lead me… lead me to the cross”. Living a surrendered life… that is the ultimate goal.
We will be having Easter dinner with some friends later... thanks Mike & Deb for thinking of us... with a grateFUL HEART, carin
