Welcome Back, Readers~

I hope everybody enjoyed their Mother’s Day last weekend. Though geared toward mothers, I hope you took some time to examine the people in your life and thank them for the role they have played in your life. As I pointed out in my previous blog, I couldn’t have been as independent if it weren’t for the love and support of my parents. But not everyone is that lucky; people are flawed and tend to let us down sometimes. That’s why it’s so important that our focus remains on Jesus.

A while back, I may have mentioned, I was reading Ann Voskamp’s WayMaker; my hope in reading the book was that I would feel more connected to Jesus. However, I have started the book several times and am progressing slowly (still in chapter 4). I get caught up in the flowery and poetic she writes with. The book opens up by asking us to examine what we expect from this life versus what God wants. Ann then explores how her marriage symbolizes Christ’s love for the church. Sadly, she didn’t get the happily ever after she intended, but God was with her through it all. As you can see, this is a heavy topic- not only because the relationship between marriage and God and the church is the key component throughout the book. But I was expecting more.

Today’s “Music Monday” deals with expectations in our walk with the Lord. In the beginning, it’s so easy to see Him working in our lives; we feel His Presence and want to share the Good News with everyone we meet. Over time, though, this “newness” fades, and we face the difficulties of this world head-on. In doing so, we have two choices:

  1. Wallow in our difficulty and let it define us
  2. REMEMBER what God has done in the past and what He’s capable of

That reminds me of something a deacon said in our church today. He talked about the healing of the blind man in John 9. On the one hand, we see two different viewpoints.

  • The viewpoint of the blind man Not only can the blind man see, but he DOES acknowledge the Savior who did that for him!
  • The viewpoint of the Pharisees. Too consumed by the ramifications of healing on the Sabbath, they DO NOT acknowledge what’s right in front of them. They refuse to see the miracle.

I would ask that you take a step back and remember what God has done for you in the past and take hold of those promises He has for your future.
