recently, i have thought a lot about the ebenezer...
1 samuel 7:12- " Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mitzpah and Shen and called its name Ebenezer, for he said, "Till now the LORD has helped us."
that is how i feel in life. with each overcome obstacle, i say to myself, "surely the LORD has brought me this far."
this past year, the LORD has been teaching me a lot and leading me in ways that i never imagined... i have tried to follow obediently but along the way, i have faced doubts, fears, convictions, sin, discouragement, resistance, stubbornness, and the list continues. by the grace of God, i have come this far.
my once hard heart is now broken... i have been encouraged... i have communed with the Lord and with His people... i am walking in openness.
even though this process has been difficult, trying, and at times painful, reflecting back there is much joy, much thankfulness, and much peace. (and my journey is just beginning...)
surely, the LORD has brought me this far.
