Graduation Day

“I am a voice of one crying out in the wilderness: Make straight the way of the Lord.” – John 1:23

Today marks the last day of my winter break.  So naturally, before heading back to the rush of the city I wanted to get as much fresh air as possible.  I asked daddy if he would take me back to the same spot deep in the creek he took me last week…

We actually ended up exploring several places behind my house, and each spot was just as unique and beautiful.  Thanks to the heavy rain the past few days, the streams were gushing with new life.

Something that stood out to me was the fact that daddy always walked before me to make sure the pillowy-pine straw path would be safe and steady for me to walk on, and He always stopped and took my hand to help me over the busy streams.

After the tour was over he parked the ranger and made his way back inside.  I planned to follow and start packing, but I knew God was tugging on my heart to stay behind…

Seeming to be led by the wind, I walked over to the glistening pond beside our house, and sat underneath the only tree standing next to the bank.

Feeling the warmth of the sun on my back and gazing into the lustrous water before me, I just kept thinking, “Wow.  I love this.

As I was praying and the wind started whipping my hair, somehow I knew something had changed… I couldn’t put my finger on it at first, but somehow I was different.

What God? What is it?

I closed my eyes and waited for God to speak.  With the passing of a new gust of wind came the still small whisper I’ve grown to love more and more each day…

He said, “Look, I am doing a new thing, Morgan.”

What is different, God? What am I leaving behind?

He said, “Your childhood.”

Definitely wasn’t expecting to hear that! I mean… I am 20 years old and was somehow under the impression I left my childhood years ago.  Regardless, I knew I had heard God correctly…  I felt the shift in my spirit and in my soul.

So, I was aware sitting under that tree today, that when I left, I would be leaving my childhood with it.

Over the past few months, the Holy Spirit has been teaching me how to sense certain things about people I come in contact with…. But today—today He allowed me to see myself.

Back inside now and looking at my reflection in the mirror, I could see it in my eyes–  the way God has been teaching me to see into others’.  Daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, friend, (possible future wife)— “Child” was not there…

God graduated me into womanhood today…. And I cannot wait to see the new thing He is doing, as well as all the new places He will take me in the years to come.

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;  

I have called you by your name; you are Mine.

I will be with you when you pass through the waters,

and when you pass through the rivers,

they will not overwhelm you….

This is what the Lord says– 

who makes a way in the sea, 

and a path through the surging waters…

“Do not remember the past events, 

pay no attention to the things of old.

Look, I am about to do something new; 

even now it is coming.  Do you not see it?

Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness…

– Isaiah 43:1-19

    There is still a long way for us to go and do not start real trading.
    With a 10 pip stop there is no way you can swing trade or invest,
    since you’ll easily be stopped out if you try to hold out for
    long-term gains. eval(ez_write_tag([[300,250],

  9. An individual of my co-employees did this not long ago and I eventually confronted him about it.
    Some things make the twitter followers real and best, like performance and service.
    Although since Twitter does not host the pictures,
    they do not have a good search feature to filter out just pictures.

  10. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright
    infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do
    you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

      ; the stand is for Wesker. He moves in super speed bursts that look like teleports and is always releasing kinetic energy when he does so.Amaterasu is the rentnariacion of the sun goddess Asura in wolf form, so she’s as powerful or more powerful than the Odinson. Okami is a great game.Check out Youtube and type “marvel vs capcom 3 doom vs wesker” or “amaterasu vs thor” so you can see their VS game abilities.
