I know I've been remiss in updating you of my Scotland adventures....much of which include math, which few, if any, of you would be interested in. I have knitting to share with you too, but that will have to wait for another day as well.
Today I am overwhelmed with joy and emotion. Some of you I met last year when I told you "my story" (you can start reading it here) and it is one that still amazes me today. 9 years ago I was healed. 9 years ago, God heard my prayers and said my days were not over. 9 years ago I had brain surgery and God spared my life. I am thankful for each day. Thankful that I have another day to serve Him, another day to know Him more, another day to sing praises to Him! Thank you Lord for saving me!
July 26th is a day of great celebration in my life! I remember the first year (in Seattle at an REU....math camp sort of thing), the second as a newlywed, another in Nebraska with friends at another math camp thing and this year in Scotland, going to a church that I wish I had subtitles for the sermon :) but never the less felt it was a time of praise and rejoicing.
This year has been tough for me spiritually. I am not entirely sure why. 9 years ago, God became so real to me, my faith was tested and I clung to God with all I had. I knew that was my only chance. The last year God has been quiet to me and I have been discouraged in ways I couldn't have fathomed. I have realized that I wasn't clinging to Him like I had in that past and I earnestly desired to seek His face and be close to Him again and yet he felt so distant. I know He is faithful and in the last month I have been so encouraged. God has not abandoned me! I want to know Him. I don't want to be complacent in my faith or simply relive what God did years ago. (though it is a testimony I am so grateful to have) I want that closeness with Him always. I am so thankful God has made that possible!
Thank you for letting me share....I'm not convinced that my words have done justice to what is in my heart, but I trust you will see the truth. Leave me a comment about what God has or is doing in your life! We have much to rejoice about!
