I’ve given up!
No, I’ve not given up on life itself, but I have given up my life…you know, the one I have planned out…for myself.
Truthfully, as a Christian, it’s not about me anyway. It’s about God…and what He wants for me.
So today, as I sit here typing and thinking about my life, part of an old chorus written by Ernest W. Blandly echoes through my mind, “Where He leads me I will follow. I’ll go with Him, with Him, all the way.” And I wonder, “What exactly does God have planned for me? For the rest of my life?” I’m not 100% sure, but I am confident that wherever God leads, it’s in the right direction. And that is the direction that I want to go!

It can be a scary thing – letting go of the life you’ve planned for yourself and trusting God, but trust and obey God. He’ll never let you down.
You will never walk alone Jill
Very true. Thanks for the encouragement.
Jill, I see that you visited my very much under construction Blog about stained glass in Kansas City “churches” and elsewhere. I am very new to this. I got your comment by email. I did not see a comment in my dashboard. Any way, This is just my second day trying to create a blog. The area I am playing with is finding a theme that works with my intention. My journey is the various locations (churches etc) that I am visiting as I try to document and learn more about these wondeful windows. Glad to have you along for the ride. I will look over your entries and get inspired (perhaps in many ways!) So I guess I am now being followed. I will keep an eye on your work too.
Being a newbie can be somewhat intimidating at first. It does get a little easier with time. Glad to see you jumped in the blog pool. I enjoyed viewing your window photos. I’ve always been intrigued by stained glass, and am looking forward to leaning more by following your journey.
