a divine conspiracy...

From the day we were born, the story of the Lord's groanings, and pursuit to capture our heart began. And it has never stopped. My faithfulness has been like that of Abraham, who trusted one moment, and was fleeting in the next. Yet, just as He did with the Israelites, the Lord has cried out for me, and has repeatedly brought me to my knees in my hour of desperation...and I have allowed His glory, forgiveness and grace to cover me again and again. This week I received news of a close friend at school of the tribulations that she is going through...tribulations that I myself have gone through. The stories are similar...the heartache is the same. My heart stopped for a second as she spoke, as I was reminded of my own emotions seven years ago. And then, as if a neon sign was blinking in front of my eyes on a dark road, God reminded me of His divine conspiracy to restore my heart back to Him, of which I was never the same, and of which, I am very grateful that time in my life has passed and the joy has returned. God gave me peace this week that passes all my understanding, in knowing now, exactly why he opened up the doors so wide for me to be at my elementary school. It will be a long year for my friend, no doubt, but I'm grateful to be a strength for her in her time of need, just as the Lord has been for me. I stepped out in faith, 3000 miles from my home, trusting and knowing that the Lord was calling me here (for many more reasons than just this), and He was faithful to carry me and to leave my eyes open to see the blessings of trusting in Him and His divine conspiracy to draw me ever so close to His heart, even in my times of doubt. Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more? "The steps of a man are established by the Lord, and He delights in his way. When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, Because the Lord is the One who holds his hand." Psalm 37:23-24
