"I Want To Keep Going Up”

Yet those who wait for the Lord Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary. Isaiah 40:31 

One of the gals in the Hinds Feet Book Study group made a comment on our questions that really hit home for me.

She wrote "I feel like I am at a place in my journey to my own High Place where I've reached a fork in the path. Is one way going to lead down ultimately even though it looks easier? The other way may look impossibly hard, but it may lead even further up. I want to keep going up.” 

When I read today’s Oswald Chambers devotional, I came across this:

‘Is there a place in your life to which you go back in memory with humility and overwhelming gratitude, so that you can honestly proclaim, “Yes, it was then, at my ’white funeral,’ (dying to self) that I made an agreement with God.”'

Over and over I find evidence of my next step.

I feel God is talking to me, questioning me,

“Are you willing, deni?

“Do you mean the words you say?

“Are you really ready to leave the old life behind?

What a hard step that has been for me.  It’s akin to walking off of a cliff, feeling there is no support underneath me, not knowing at all what will come next.

Yet, what I am beginning to realize is that it is not walking off a cliff at all.

It is the place to learn to spread our wings … 

and soar.

Andrae Crouch  Through It All

I heard this song today and it brought me to tears; because yes, He has been here with me through it all.

Deaths,

Accidents,

Health crises,

Relationship endings.

Through it all.

Why would I doubt Him now?

‘You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings, and brought you to Myself. Exodus 19:4
