greater things

greater things.

sure — for other people
absolutely — for my friends
but for me?  greater things??

I have been learning a lot these last few months.
yes, I have started working in a field that is new to me
yes, I have had to learn new systems
and new practices
but the learning didn’t just begin and end there

greater things.

are you kidding me?

I have seen Ephesians 3:20-21 come alive in my life in the past 4 months.

Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you. (the Passion Translation)

oh, the privilege I have
every.single.day.

the stories
the hurt
the freedom
the shared burdens
the listening
the #IdontknowwhatIamdoingbutIshowupandgiveitago
the support
the team…yes, the team

greater things

I don’t know that I ever dreamt this for myself
I honestly don’t know that I ever imagined this

greater things

and yet…
here I am
headed in a new direction

restoration
redemption
renovation

You never fail
You never will
I trust Your name for greater things
You will come through
You always do
I trust Your name for greater things – Mack Brock

He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love.
    His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss.
That’s where he restores and revives my life.
    He opens before me pathways to God’s pleasure
    and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness
    so that I can bring honor to his name.
Lord, even when your path takes me through
    the valley of deepest darkness,
    fear will never conquer me, for you already have!
    You remain close to me and lead me through it all the way.
    Your authority is my strength and my peace. – Psalm 23 (the Passion Translation)

the journey
the path
the arrows pointing me this way

While one arrow can be easily broken, a bundle is tougher to break…Being held tight by the arrow-maker Himself.
Figuring it out.
Forging a path.
Walking a new direction.
Together. – Heather Land

arrows pointing to greater things
to refreshed truth
to restored faith
to revived spirit
to redemption

greater things…
fresh insight
renewed purpose and calling
beyond understanding

vulnerability
transparency

“We must know that we have been created for greater things, not just to be a number in the world, not just to go for diplomas and degrees, this work and that work. We have been created in order to love and to be loved.” – Mother Teresa

greater things.

great grace.
