I have been avoiding my journal and just won't even crack it open.
being home has been a tough transition this past week, and I don't know why I am so afraid to look within myself at what God has done and ask him about what he wants to continue to do, but I have realized one thing..
one very important truth, that keeps popping up in my head that I learned from IVLI:
we need to rest IN God and not FROM him.
I have been resting FROM him.
I don't yet know what this means for me and what I need to change and how to actually rest IN God, but
hey, he spoke this to me! Even in the midst of avoiding him;
He speaks! He pursues. He convicts. He wants my heart!
Over this I rejoice.
And realize my need for his forgiveness.
And also would like to ask you to join me in looking within yourself to see where it is that you may be resting from him, instead of in him.
He wants your heart, too, friend.
