God is doing something this year. the stories of my friends, my own story--they all point to Him.
He has a plan. He loves us. He is transforming us, changing us, stripping old things away, inviting us into the light. asking us to trust Him. asking us to be faithful in new areas that we didn't think mattered. asking us to pray. asking us to listen.
and yes, sometimes i don't feel God the way that we wish we did, don't sense His overwhelming presence or have a vision or anything tangible like that. but the way that i see Him working in the world, and more specifically, in my life and in the lives of the people who form my community--i believe. i trust Him. i believe that He is real and that He is working tirelessly in the world to heal it of its brokenness.
so you see--telling a story can be act of worship. and this is how i've been worshiping lately.
