I cannot believe that Christmas is days away and we get the opportunity to celebrate the joy of a little baby that was born in a manger to save us all from sin, to be our strength, peace, and joy to the whole world.
His name is Jesus!
I wrapped a few presents last week and put them under the tree unlabelled, and it’s been driving the kids up the wall. Not knowing whom they belong to is hard, but with that comes expectancy and anticipation. I think this is a lot like faith. Our faith journey for the last few years has been a lot like that. God has given us hints and bits of information but not the clear story until this year. Knowing what lies ahead, and as we wait with anticipation it makes me giddy.
A few weeks ago I shared that our friend had participated in a listening to God workshop three years ago and she wrote down the words that God gave us through her. I shared my card a few weeks ago, so today I’m sharing Darryl’s. Thanks again friend, Thanks God.
Oh my Beloved Son Darryl,
How I love you and I am so proud of the man you have become. Keep going! Keep pressing into me. I have so much I want to show you and teach you. You have a voice, use it to speak for me, about me. Do not be afraid my son of what they will say about you or your family. I have plans for you, keep going! You are a man of honour and strength and respect and I want to use you for my Glory. Ask me for wisdom and I will give it liberally, ask me to speak and I will. Open your ears and heart to me continually and I will pour myself in. Do not worry about what it looks on the outside. I have plans and purpose for you that are way beyond your imagination and way beyond what makes sense on the outside. Don’t worry about outside appearances. Keep pressing into me and I will bless you for your pursuit. I have created you for adventure – will you join me in the grand adventure I have for you?
I love you my son, Darryl
Thanks for standing with us in this huge leap, we cannot do this without you!
Jodi and Darryl
