Daily Delight

How often do we shuffle through life, numb to world around us? In some seasons we are keenly aware, but in others we are lifeless, passionless, and perhaps discouraged. I'm in a season where I've felt numb and honestly a little bored lately, which completely perplexes me because I'm in a mountaintop season where blessings are flowing. However, there has been this empty spot in my soul that longs for more. You see, I just started working in corporate America, but my heart longs to do ministry and to be able to invest in the spiritual development of people. Likewise, although I've gotten to know a great guy, my heart longs for a fairytale, undeniable-must-be-God kind of romance.

Maybe I'm disillusioned. Maybe I'm discontent. Or maybe, I need to stand on the promises of God, lean in to Him a little more, and breath Him in. 

Although God has spoken life and love into me so often in my lifetime, it seems like when I don't sense His promises materializing in my life like I expect, things get foggy. And I often lose sight of His promises in the fog. But, His word says, "No word from God will ever fail," (Luke 1:37, NIV). 

Every promise that He has whispered into our hearts and that He has written into our souls through His beautiful Bible will never fail. Our promises are on the brink of fruition. Let us not lose hope now, for the fog is clearing, the sun is rising, and our promises are on the horizon. Let's continue hoping hard and dreaming big, for His word N E V E R fails.
