So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)
The last chapter has ended, and here- at the pivot- as I was sharing with a new friend the other day, I feel like a mosaic. I feel like many elements of my life have been shattered. Like a vase that fell from a second story balcony- shattered, with shards of glass flying in dozens of different directions again. But what remains amidst the shattered pieces: faith, hope and love. What more is needed? He will use the shattered pieces to create a mosaic masterpiece.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (Ephesians 2:10)
This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and with it the beginning of Lent. Traditionally we give up something for lent- chocolate, diet coke, social media…but what if, this year, we released resentment, gave up regrets, and opened ourselves up to His purpose and following His path?
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
This song, Trust in You by Lauren Daigle, has become my fight song lately. I’m sharing it here because I expect that many of you will relate to these powerful lyrics every bit as much as I do.
When You don’t move the mountains I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers as I cry out to You
I will trust in You!
