Thirsting for Him

As of my last post, I was in a really difficult place and was having a hard time seeing what God was doing. On Wednesday, God provided an opportunity for reconciliation. I am so thankful for the way He orchestrated it. It provided relief and I was so excited I could barely speak! I have seen just in the last few days how God is using this as a life-changing experience for me. It has drawn me much closer to Him and I have a thirst for His Word and seeking Him!!!!! One of the things that has really stood out to me and I keep hearing God say to me is, "I am more than enough for you...I'm all you want, I'm all you need..." The words of the song Draw Me Close have been playing in my head since I started singing it with students on our campout on Friday night.... click here to here/see this amazing song and its lyrics. As I link it here, I am listening to it and its giving me goosebumps, I can't even explain the comfort and hope that this song has brought me over the past 48 hours! I'm excited about what God is doing in my life, in my heart and in my relationships with those friends closest to me. We also sang a song in church this morning and the words continue to linger in my heart. It is called Healer by Hillsong:

You're my Healer
You hold my every moment
You calm my raging seas
You walk with me through fire
And heal all my disease

I trust in You
I trust in You

I believe You're my Healer
I believe You are all I need
I believe You're my Portion
I believe You're more than enough for me
Jesus You're all I need

My Healer, You're my Healer
Nothing is impossible for You
Nothing is impossible for You
Nothing is impossible for You
You hold my world in Your hands

Although I felt like my world was falling apart just a few days ago...God has started putting it back together piece-by-piece in His PERFECT timing according to His PERFECT plan which is greater than any plan I could have for myself. Last week, I couldn't have imagined the immense peace and desire for God that I would have at this very moment. I would be lying if I still didn't have lingering pain from the experience but I see God using it in my life and for that, I couldn't be more thankful. I'm looking forward to what God has in store and am grateful for the people he has brought alongside me to continue along my journey!!
