Five Minute Friday: Growing

Growing, Growing, Growing, can it be? 
I feel as though this isn’t true of me.
But, this is what He promises:
  • all things new…new creation am I, me, yes, me!
  • to finish a work He began in me in me!
  • to give a crown of beauty instead of ashes, oil of gladness instead of despair on my head, yes mine!
  • to rejoice over me with singing, yes me, Bride of the Great I AM an eternal delight…and can it be, oh yes, it can!
  • to carry me close to His heart and gently lead me in the craziness of raising young…oh yes, how I need this one…
  • to change me, yes ME, from one degree of glory to ANOTHER until I behold Him face-to-face…I and not ONLY all the others, but me, no me AND HIM!!!
and somehow, His promises are at work, because He who has called me is faithful.  When I feel it the least He is growing the most…humbling me to the dust and laying me low that all of the growing love, joy, peace would sing of nothing but Him.  For in all that jumbles and causes me to tumble there is a God who is GREATER, my God who is GREATER singing ‘BEAUTY, LOVE, HOPE, THE DANCE OF HEAVEN AND ETERNITY’ in through above and beyond each breath I take.
Hallelujah, what a SAVIOR!
