Life right now is full of hope, expectation, and hands held wide open to receive. We are leaving for our family trip to Bermuda today and I am excited to receive from the Lord while I’m away. I’m expectant for big ideas from Him, and creativity and stillness and abundance and adventure. On our last vacation, I tried to dig and uncover a lot within myself, which was daunting and exhausting even though it seemed like the right thing to do at the time. This time, I am ready to show up with an open heart and a willing spirit to be guided by Him into fullness and vision. He’s been planting seeds for a while now and I am eager for a harvest and expectant that He has one for me in the days to come.
In that, I want to encourage you to hold your hands open to Him too. That’s been a big theme for me lately in my life and one that has continually pointed me to Him through recent weeks. Through it I have learned to not look for things that aren’t there but instead to take notice of where I see Him, what He has done, and what He is doing. Look for where you see Him moving in your life, in the lives of others, and in the quiet places of your heart. Ask Him to show you. It’s a beautiful thing to receive what He has and a comfort to know that His matters are the very best kind.
For the next week I will be unplugging without my phone, without the internet, and without everyday routine. I’m packing up my journal, the Word, some art supplies, and my sunhat for seven days of simplicity and am excited to bring back what I learn while I’m away. Talk to you soon, friends.
