And just like that this week has come and my countdowns are winding down and my adventures are continuing. But if there’s anything I’ve learned in this season, anything it all, it is to count it all as joy and to live each day with purpose and contentment. Because my plans are so apt to changing but Jesus seems to know exactly what the next day holds.
If anyone is going to take me seriously I have got to get back in the word and back on my knees. It feels like I am failing all over the places and I’m slowly learning to be content with that. Which is extremely terrifying and rather dangerous. Because as far as I remember it was doing the terrifying, dangerous, hard things that have made me who I am today. There is no easy way out. There is never an easy way if you are going to do things right. Someone is going to get hurt. Someone is going to disagree with you. The thing to remember is who are you most trying to please? When is it okay to let them down? Patience, Augusta. You could really work on your patience.
He so knows.
It is just like clockwork the way He times out those reminders that He is faithful and looking out for me. It is right in the midst of my doubt. It is right when I think I have gone as far as I can go and cannot take another step that He refreshes my soul and nudges me onward. How does He do it? How is He so gracious?
That is just who He is. And I guess this is why I always revert back to “Jesus knows.”
Because He knows me. And He knows that where my sin abounds, His grace abounds more.
"Therefore, know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments…" Deuteronomy 7:9
