You see, I truly came face to face with my God for the first time in my life almost two years ago and as I stared into His eyes, I was irrevocably changed. I discovered that no matter where I live, if He has called me there, if I am walking hand in hand with Him, then the beauty and love of wherever I am suddenly springs to life like I never expected. And it really is true. When I stare at these mountains that I used to wish were the sea, I wonder how I could have wished such a thing? For I have truly discovered the meaning of lifting my eyes to the hills, from whence comes my help. It has been in this place, in these mountains that I've found this quote from Corrie Ten Boom to be utterly true:
"You can never learn that Christ is all you need, until Christ is all you have."It has been here that I've found myself with nothing but Him and He is truly all I need. Though I am no longer in that place of utterly having nothing but Him, I am reminded, like today, that if I will think back and remember, He truly is all I need. This is a beautiful thing to have realized in full and it gives me a confidence for my future. Though I may not know where the money will come from for gas or groceries, or a thousand other things, I do not have to worry because my Father owns cattle on a thousand hills and He is all I need. Truly:-) I love this!!
