These last 3 weeks have been climatic! They have been pinnacle and pivotal all in the same breath -the emotional pendulum has been in full swing. Our awareness of just how little control we have has never been greater than in that moment of sheer unabashed need and an inability to meet it in our own strength and resourcefulness...Life on the edge of nothing [the place we now call home]...total surrender of all that is of self...complete dependency on Father as our true and faithful source! The one constant here in this place has been and continues to be Father's care, love and absolute provision [and it just keeps coming]!
I can't say it loud enough or with enough emphasis:
HE DELIGHTS IN HIS CHILDREN AND TAKES ABSOLUTE JOY IN SHOWING OUT ON THEIR BEHALF!
He -make no mistake- has his providential hand in all human affairs and He, with complete certainty, conducts the orchestral symphony [life] of his chosen ones for the display of His splendor, the edification of His bride and the calling out -unto salvation- those who are lost and in desperate need of what He alone holds for them...
We are privileged to sit in our "edge of nothing" seat -constant observers of this miraculous provision and grace that continually hovers over and around us... it is making our crooked places straight and calling forth abundance out of nothing in order to sustain us. This is the place which displays his awesome character in and through us to all who come across our station.
The even cooler thing...it's not just reserved for us...let me say that again:
IT'S NOT JUST RESERVED FOR US!
He invites all who would to join us here on the edge...it is a place of freedom, of refining...a place of long sought treasures found...the plateau where peace truly passes human understanding...a "soar on wings with eagles" kind of spot...
The view is fabulous and the assurance of the shelter of His wing...well that would be the PINNACLE!
I'll take the Edge of Nothing in the Center of His Everything over Anything else -Any day!
It's the sweet spot!
