even in my wandering (and MM 1001-1012)

You are true
You are true
even in my wandering

And I,
I'll run into Your arms,
I'll run into Your arms,
the riches of this world
will never be enough...

(from Forever Reign)

This song has been going through my head all day. I resonated with it this morning during the worship gathering because the word "wandering" seems to describe so much of my life the last few years. Wandering without going anywhere, at least in the physical sense.

And it doesn't matter how much I wander - how much I don't know about the next leg of the journey. He is True, and He is always with me.

I sat in my backyard tonight with three amazing people God has brought into my life recently, and we discussed journeys and God and rest and faith.  While I sat praying, God brought a picture to mind and a little explanation that didn't mean a lot me just a couple of hours ago, but now it does.  There is a picture of a man putting his hand in the small of a woman's back to lead her.  God leads us, not dragging us or pushing us, but in an intimate way.  I may feel like I am wandering sometimes, but I am not. He is there. He is true, and He can be trusted.

patience of The Hubs when I am running late again on Sunday morning ~ lots of time outside with my boys ~ Bugaboo staying on hands and knees when I put him there ~ ice cream cones after dinner ~ Bubby running into the kitchen just to hug my leg and running back to play again ~ friends who love my kids ~ the Mac-boys
riding in their red wagon with such delight ~ the peace and joy of doing God's will ~ pastor talking about suffering and death with a smile on his face ... reminder how much I need to die to self so Christ can live in me ~ answer to prayer about a financial question regarding the fall semester ~ potty training adventures going better than expected ~ birds chirping in the morning and other signs of spring
