I haven't blogged much lately because, frankly, I haven't had much to say. I am in a refining place in my life. I am soaking in as much as I can. I am desperate for God, for the Holy Spirit, in my life. I am struggling to find the Joy again in my life. It's not only winter in the natural, but winter in my soul. It's cold and dark and the sun seems so far away. I am ready for spring, but I know winter is where I need to be right now. It's where God is going to mold me and shape me into a new creation.

Every free time I have, I am soaking in God's word, either through a book that I am reading or listening to online Bible teaching. There are so many great resources online. I just got done watching a great message from Joseph Prince. This is my lifeline right now. I'm learning to be still and listen for the Lord's direction and leading. I know I have talked time and time again about The Jesus Calling Devotional and if you don't have it, go out and get it. You won't be disappointed. You can get the online version for $9.99. Everyday they will send you the devotional straight to your email. How great is that? You can sign up here. I forward them often to my family when I get one that I know can encourage them. Maybe you have someone in your life that can use these daily devotionals right now.

Today's was so good that I am going to post it to share with you. I know it will encourage your heart.


The Smiths said...

When you said you were in the winter, it reminded me of Nichole Nordeman's Every Season:

And everything in time and under heaven
Finally falls asleep
Wrapped in blankets white, all creation
Shivers underneath
And still I notice You
When branches crack
And in my breath on frosted glass
Even now in death, You open doors for life to enter
You are winter

And everything that’s new has bravely surfaced
Teaching us to breathe
What was frozen through is newly purposed
Turning all things green
So it is with You
And how You make me new
With every season’s change
And so it will be
As You are re-creating me

Praying that you see Him in the winter, that He would open doors for life to enter, for renewal and re-creation for you, Krista, and for your Spring to come again.
