Thank you. Thank you so much. I know that you heard me and answered. After all this time, which is like a blink to you, you answered. You gave me a reply. You protected me and guided me. You brought me to this point, to this place. You’re so full of mercy and so full of grace. All other things my mind can erase. Til there is only you. Til all I see is you, and all I know is you. I know you to be true. I know you to save. Your word is the only thing that staves off my hunger and thirst. I yearn for you and you fill me up.

I take a breath and gasp no more. I look over to my bedroom door. I’m thankful. I know I’m here because of you. I’m thankful. Thankful. Thankful. Thankful.

You have made me so free. Not carefree, because you taught me to care. But you teach me what to care about and how to care. You give me the tools and give me the wisdom and then you coach me through it. You’re so personal and present… Just what I’m looking for. Just what I always am asking for. Thank you for your attentiveness to me.

Thankful. There’s not a single place I would rather be than here with you. Father. Thank you for meeting me in this place.

It occurred to me

As I was turning the key to the top lock on the door to my garage

that I have a top lock

and a door to a garage.

The garage is part of a house, where I have a room. And a bathroom. And a living room. And an extra room for music and art stuff.

And I live near all of my endeavors, and near many of my people.

I have parking right outside.

I have a working car.

I have enough food, clothing, income.

And it was all given to me.

This life that I inhabit is so uniquely different than anything I would have ever expected.

Who said “expect the unexpected” anyway?! Well, they were right.

I picture things going a certain way and am always surprised to find out that they ain’t gonna go that way AT all. hahaha

*shrug*

And then out of seemingly nowhere my world is flipped in the best way possible.

Like me, moving to Virginia. And starting care-giving. And taking on more vigorous forms of it. And paying no rent to no rent to low rent to still low rent, to even lower rent for a better place.

It’s been absurd. All I can say is this:

God. Is. Good.

He cares for me. He says¬†don’t worry about food, clothing, shelter. I GOTchu.¬†

He always has. And He always will.

I am taken care of.

And He leads me and guides me in the Truth. And it feels SO good. I am SO thankful.

Thankful.

Thankful.

Thank you.

Thank you.

A million times over, thank you <3
