Draw near

“...for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.”
Genesis 28:15

The leaves change, the flowers bloom and our lives continue on. Just as the season change in our world, our lives are ever changing and constant. The anticipation for the coming fall or bloom is always around a corner as we often eagerly look ahead. I am constantly having to remind myself that I am in a time of preparation. I have been brought here to this place, on this path, cause I am to be be rooted. When the time comes I will be ready, but right now I am to be prepared. I am brought here to listen, to watch, to captivate and to draw near. As the next season approaches it will be in perfect timing. His timing. I am here cause He is not done. I may be justified, but I am not sanctified. My sanctification can only come through the willing act to abandon control and abide. I have no control over my justification- for His mercies are new every morning. My glorification is only going to be obtained when I enter in His presence. But my sanctification? That is a choice I have right now. I must stop, shut up, and let go. I must let the power that He had to conquer death, be the residing influence in me.
For He has spoken.
