A Growing Heart
“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns.” Isaiah 52:7
Recently my husband dropped me off in the Great Smoky Mountains to attend a post-abortion healing retreat, Go Deeper Still. He then went to stay in a campground and have his own retreat with the Lord. The mountains are God’s country, so peaceful, and yet very unpredictable in the path you follow at times. You have to be an experienced backpacker to know what to do when the path takes a different turn than you expected. Serving the Lord is the same way. We need to be willing to leave our comfort zone and totally depend on the Lord and where He is guiding us. This can be scary at times, and to be honest, it has for me lately.
I was recently reminded the Lord gives us the grace to go to the next level He is calling us to. Let go of where you came from and move on ahead. This is how we grow. The easy way of life is an escape of what the Lord has for you, the hardship He allows you to go through, helps your growth and getting to the next level and blessings He has for you. Be adventurous and see where the Lord takes you.
