Recap blog: What I do when I'm MIA


Happy Friday! I have had SUCH an amazing week, God has really shown me that his timing is everything and when he says wait, just be still and wait. And when he says GO, you better have your bags packed!! 

I finally have a new computer, I had been blogging really sporadically from my MACKS laptop, but we took my sick imac to the shop and came home with a new one for me! It had been almost 2 months since the computer just failed out completely and although it went fast, I sure missed sitting down at my desk and working/blogging. I have a laptop and monitor combo,I am mobile!! 


Working out and Orchard: 
I have been doing a lot of drop sets which i love for building strength, it keeps your muscles under tension which is essential for growth. Always getting that workout in, even if it's only 25 min of a lift, better than none at all! 


Speaking of, my gym went under a remodel and added 2000 square feet!! It's a dream gym now, I love the space and how bright it is! However, I was used to be able to kind of hid in the older, narrow weight room and take pump pics in the mirror, no more, there is no hiding! 


We went to an apple orchard and corn maze!! Simply put, it was just a nice day to spend in the fall weather and having a blast with friends from church. 






The orchard was very fun, we went on a hay ride, got to pet animals and best of all, we actually picked apples!! For some reason, I thought that we would have to climb ladders to reach the apples, so I was a little sad that the trees were so low, who knew!! 


Waiting for what you want: 
What have you had to wait for? I don't mean like me waiting for a new computer, I mean really waiting on God for a change, an answer to prayer, for that hearts desire you have cried over and dreamt of. That. God will speak to us WHERE we are. Meaning if you are waiting for that big job break through, we can talk to God and hear him talk to us while we wash the floor, write our resume, while we fold the socks. I am waiting on things. In my holding pattern I work, I cook, clean, I do all the life stuff. He meets me there, he talks to me, tells me little things to be encourage me, to move me forward. He covers me with peace.

The unique thing about waiting on God, the true living God, is that he offers us peace. He says to us, "Be Still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10. In this world, in this life, we are never still, we are always running, busy, doing, checking off, getting done. Yet the God who weighed out the dust and waters in His hands wants us to be STILL so we can know His heart. 

Here in our waiting, in our patient stillness with our desires on our hearts, we can know Him and his transforming peace. Here our hearts desires become Him alone. So next time your waiting for God to open a door, just be still and rest in His peace in the hallway. 

LATER TODAY! CLEAN APPLE CRUMBLE!!!

Love love love what you said about waiting for God! This so applies to me right now, and what you said is so true. I think in the waiting is when we grow closest to God, at least that is what I am experiencing right now! Thanks for sharing!
