Breakthrough

Deep began to call to deep.  God began giving me rich insights to years of questions.  I’d have visions and dreams about my wounded spirit and flash backs from the moments they all began.

 

Happy new year!  I can’t believe 2018 has gone by so quickly.  2018 was a year of transition for me in terms of life and spirituality.  You could say I’ve been on a journey of solitude, but not by myself.  Surrounded by family, and time with the Lord, I’ve been disjointed from any commitments outside of the home and focused on working on me.

I’ve learned that there are times the Lord calls us to the minimal; to come away from the unnecessary; to draw us toward the One thing.

It’s a lie that being busy is being successful.  The truth is, simplifying the chaos quiets the soul.  Seeking the characteristics of God’s heart is where true success and happiness dwells.

So….summing up 2018, I’ve experienced some major change in my life!  I left my job as a dental assistant to home school our teenage daughter. My middle daughter got married.  As a family, we’ve dwindled ourselves down to one car, shed some debt and another car payment…. Oh the bliss!   I’ve donated half of my wardrobe to the Goodwill, and started a savings plan we call the “storehouse” which is basically a savings account for the money the Lord has entrusted to us.  The plan is that we don’t take the money out unless the Lord specifically tells us to.

Rearranging priorities and simplifying my life has created the space for growth regarding the virtue of wisdom and identifying the consequence of foolishness.  My new quiet simple life honed my ear to His voice and opened my senses to the awareness of His presence.  I could hear Him say to my spirit “come away my beloved, and learn from me.  I have some healing I want to do in you, so that you can step into the calling I have for you, but it will require a relentless pressing in.”

He began to show me the crooked places within me; wounds that haven’t been healed from years passed, enforced by a parent with narcissistic personality disorder.  God revealed the root of the tumultuous thoughts, that often arrested my mind and heart, were a product of the scars that hadn’t healed properly.

Deep began to call to deep.  God began giving me rich insights to years of questions.  I’d have visions and dreams about my wounded spirit and flash backs from the moments they all began.

Now, I feel like a new person.  God is faithful to accomplish His call on his children, and carry it out.  Isn’t it amazing?

2019 is going to be a year of breakthrough for God’s people, and it will require some pressing in, but I am confident that it will be the best year of our lives!  God bless you, and be encouraged that your breakthrough is on its way!
