I have been walking with the Lord for 5 years and every year He never ceases to amaze me. He is always up to something and is always preparing us to go just alittle futher in our walks.

Today in my walk I am feeling the calmness.

It feels really good to be here with God, so good you do not want to give it up. Since God does not want us to get comfortable in our lives here on earth I know that the calmness is only for a short time.

I am walking into 2013 with my eyes WIDE open, my EARS ready to hear, and a willingness that scares me to the core.

I know the storm is on the way and the calmness will be no more. I know that the Lord has already prepared me for this storm and the calmness will come again but do I truly believe that deep down?

Am I truly ready for what is to come? Have I fully embraced all that the Lord has taught me for the storm? Is my faith and love for Christ strong enough to with stand the winds & rains that will come?

Its when we are in the storms that we see God at His fullness. It’s where we cant take the next step without Him. It’s a place where we solely relying on Him.

I feel like I am ready to take it on for Him, then the voice of doubt creeps in, to try and break me. Though I only listen for just a moment, I am then reminded of Gods promises that bring me calmness once again.

All I know is that 2012 was a year of preparation, a year of learning obedience, learning to trust God fully, to hand over every part of my life to Him, how to be good stewards, a year that was full of calmness.

2013 holds a lot of uncertainness, however when I look back at what was accomplished in 2012, I look to be ready for the next part of my journey for the Kingdom.

I mean I have to be, right?

I have to except God’s decision no matter the outcome. I have to fully trust Him no matter what the storm brings. I have to push forward no matter what the journey calls for.

I have to be stronger then the storm because someone will need this testimony to further their walk.

WHY?

Romans 8:28 “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose”

With the trembling of my fingers as I type this, God’s plan is BIGGER then I could even imagine. Good or Bad I will push on, taking on the storm with Him right by side, furthering my walk and drawing closer to More of Him and Less of Me!

Luke 9:23 ““If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.

Are you going through a calmness right now in your life? Are you preparing for the storm? I would love to hear from any one of you that has been through the calmness then the storm hits, how God pulled you through.

Serving Him Boldly,
