Last night I sat up on the grain-dryer and had a good think.
It’s the first time in the past two months that I actually wanted to get alone to think… But as I looked out at the golden light, and meditated on the thought provoking ideas in the book I was reading, the idea of climbing the grain-dryer and getting alone with God and the beauty of the evening kept calling to me. So I went.
You see, I’ve spent the past two months looking in the rearview mirror, and expecting to be able to drive forward.
Yesterday, I realized that I can’t do that.
But more then that… I realized how beautiful it is, when I look forward and focus on the light streaming across the future that God has for me.
Up on that grain-dryer I let myself dream again.
I let myself actually think about where I could be a year from now, and what I could have accomplished by then.
You know what?
My friend was right when she told me that I need to focus on the purpose instead of the pain.
That focus changes everything.
It makes this path possible.
God has plans for me. Plans of a future and of hope. Plans that He wants me to press into… instead of always looking back on what was, and what could have been.
I’m going to keep on looking ahead. Looking into the light. Letting it flood my soul.
God is good.
He’s good in the painful moments, and He’s good in the golden glow of the evening.
I can’t wait to press farther into Him!
I know this is the fifth post in five days… I feel kinda funny about that. But there should be a good long break after this. Unless I find time to post tomorrow after we get back from boating… because next week I’m starting a new job, and life’s gonna look a little different for a while.
I’m kinda excited to find out what God has in store!
