The Word of God

I spent most of my day working at our ministry house yesterday. I disassembled my office.  For me it was a sad time, because I have always loved being in my office; it's been one of my favorite places. It's been a retreat room for me, a place I would go to pray and take a break when needed. My favorite things were in my office, and pictures of my children. My favorite chair. The old yellow couch that reminds me of my grandmother. Special things, and special memories.
I made my office into a bedroom, so the house would show better.  We had an old bed frame in the garage and box spring, so when my husband came later we carried it to my office and set it up. I threw a blanket on it and tossed on some pillows. I also thanked God that I don't have to sleep on it.
I worked the rest of the afternoon in another part of the house, and packed more boxes. By the time I had one room packed I knew that I would need a moving party to get me and my family out of our home and the ministry house! God has brought me to a place of less anxiety and grief, as He walks me through the changes in our life. I don't know where we are going, or what it is going to look like, but I do know my final destination. I do know He is with me, and He has promised to never leave me. I do know that He has called me for adventure and for His Kingdom here on earth, so I will go.
In Revelation this morning I was so moved when I read of the coming of my Jesus:

"Then I saw Heaven open wide-and oh! a white horse and it's Rider. The Rider, named Faithful and True, judges and makes war in pure righteousness. His eyes are a blaze of fire, on his head  many crowns. He has a Name inscribed that's known only to himself. He is dressed in a robe soaked with blood, and he is addressed as 'Word of God'.
The armies of Heaven, mounted on white horses and dressed in dazzling white linen, follow him. A sharp sword comes out of his mouth so he can subdue the nations, then rule them with a rod of iron. He treads the winepress of the raging wrath of God, the Sovereign-Strong. On his robe and thigh is written, KING OF KINGS, LORD OF LORDS."

In my little world, I'm moving out of two houses and raising children, and figuring out life. But, it's really not about my little world, it's about His Kingdom.  My office is insignificant, as well as moving, and all the gazillion boxes, if this means that He will use me in some way to further His Kingdom!  He is the Word of God, which resides in me. Wow, the day I see Him coming on that white horse, is going to be one move I will be pretty happy about!
King of Kings, Say That Again, You are the Word of God and You are  coming again. You reside within me and moving to Heaven is going to be my best move!


  1. Thank you so much for sharing! Most times it is easier to focus on the trials that we are facing than to focus on the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I don't think that you will ever know the impact that your ministry and heart has had on this world. Thank you so much for taking that step of faith and following the path that the Lord has laid out before you. I love you friend.
