Enjoying a good rest!

This week has been so weird. I have been off with absolutely nothing urgent needing done. At first I was a little bit bored, but then I realised that this was an amazing opportunity for me to get some really good rest. So I have had a few long sleeps, lots of tv and a lot of quality social time with friends and family. It has been good. God's timing is so perfect. Rebecca and I have had a really brilliant week of re-discovering the goodness of God and the blessing it is to wait on his voice, his guidance and his grace. Our lives are about to change so much, the next six months for us are going to be so mad, so exciting, so terrifying but by faith we are trusting God for more of his abundant care. This week one verse of scripture has been living in me making me think and drawing me near, its found in 2 Corinthians, Paul writes

7But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

I am being reminded of my need to depend completely on God and his power, recognising with real honesty just how frail and human I am. A lump of dust.
