anticipation…

The time away… comes to a close…
What comes to mind… commitments… plans… made before… things that seemed far away… but now are near…
Commitments that stir up anxiety… and wonder… 

Why… did I say… I would…?
Fear… tries to creep in… to plans made by faith… here is where I need to replace fear with JOY… no longer dread… but remember and cling to… the call that I heard to commit… to remember… that I am not in these things alone… that even if I misheard the call… He will not leave me or forsake me… and He has power to correct my faith-filled missteps…
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.
Romans 8:28 NASB
The desire to stay away… needs to be transformed into anticipation… to serve… in love… with joy… to join with Him… not look at me… to WAIT… on Him…
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful singing.
Know that the Lord Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Psalm 100:2-3 NASB

Father God… transform fear… to joy… dread… to excitement… to serve… be useful… to You… and Your kingdom…
