Keep Doing Good

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

-Galatians 6:9

KEEP IT UP –  even when you want to give up – just keep showing up and doing your best.  Keep believing, keep praying, keep seeking me and in time you will see all I have planned for you.

You will get tired and when you do – REST!!! It’s ok, you can take a break, I will take care of everything. I only ask, while you rest, please remember  I live in you – as you care for yourself, you also tend to me. Nourish us, be tender to us, love us, praise us, and enjoy us. We can and WILL do great things together!

When your energy returns, continue to RUN YOUR RACE – Share the good news, share with all, how in your time of need I was there to comfort you. Remind my other children that I am a GOOD father – I am faithful, generous, gracious and patient.  Show them my daughter, let your light shine!

Remember daughter, I will ask you to do good work for me, but you will not work in vain. You will be serving a great PURPOSE! Keep your eyes on me, and I will continue to show you the way back to me.

Sleep well and when you rise – awake to all can and will be!

Love, Papa

Play Time

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”

-Ecclesiastes 3:1

Hey God,

I just wanted to say – THANK YOU!

I got your memo the other week to SLOW DOWN and smell some roses…. And I am glad I LISTENED!

Papa, you have created me with a spirit of adventure and spontaneity but often I restrain myself to stay focused on work and other “adult stuff”; But you reminded me that work with out play and rest is work done in vain. You showed me that my rest time and play time is what fuels me and inspires my work.

So I put my work time to the side and I got busy playing and taking it easy…. Its silly, but I forgot how good it feels to just go take an adventure with my sweet babies…. I forgot how good it feels to stay up chatting with Adam, just resting in his company…. But you reminded me papa that rhythm is necessary to create a beautiful and meaningful life.

I like this new beat – it flows, it’s got rhythm and I feel like I am back in my groove!

Love you papa,

Your adventurous daughter x0

A Step Ahead

people-rushing

“Desire without knowledge is not good, and whoever makes haste with his feet misses his way.”

-Provers 19:2

 

Oh man Papa… I did it again…. Instead of leaning on you and trusting your plan, I began to create my own plan and lean on my own understanding.

FAIL!

That vision you gave me the other week spoke novels:

You showed me that if I fail to keep up with you, I will find myself in the dark; feeling lost and confused.

But if I stay in your presence, the path will be brightly lit and the direction clear; And I will feel your presence and peace as you unfold your plan.

And then you showed me that if I try to get ahead of you, I will yet again find myself in the dark; feeling frustrated and scared.

Over the past few weeks I have been growing myself, building my motivation and taking on new challenges and new opportunities ; but somewhere along the line I forgot to ask you if this is where you want my energy to go.

I know that you know me and you know that I have tendencies to rush and to become impatient and take matters in my own hands; But I ask that you forgive me for my fleshly urges.

So yet again, I am surrendering myself back to you papa! Renewing my faith in your plan and trusting that all is unfolding in your perfect timing.

Love your ever eager daughter,
