It is an endless cycle of fire and rebirth untill the day we are finally reborn into eternal life. We will forever be with the Father who gave us life and loved us enough to give His Son for us. He is forever with His children and though He brings us through fire it will never be too hot for us. All glory to His name!

There Shall be no more Sea (...I miss you)

I have so much on my mind right now.  There is so much I want to write about; so we shall see where this goes.
Yesterday marked one month since mom passed away....I don’t even know how to explain what has gone on.  One day I may be able to write or say it in some form that will make sense..but I don’t know if that is possible right now.  She is FINALLY home!  Dancing with countless others...finally experiencing the fullness of life.  Even through this pain God IS soooo good.
Over the past month God has really been teaching me that one day there will be no missing those who you love(whether on earth or Heaven) and that HE is enough.  One day our pain and confusion will be over.  Yes in Heaven, but I do believe that God will do something like that while we are still here.  There will be a day when He will say enough and Heaven and Earth will rejoice and He will be given amazing glory.  For now we wait with hopeful expectancy.  Gods will takes time...He wants us to wait, even when we don’t feel.  Sometimes He seems silent and we take that as His answer....silent’s is waiting.  Look at the 400 years of silent’s in the Bible; God was alive and working.  Let us not sit in fear....but cling to hope and run toward the goal.  Yes this life is hard and filled with pain.....but there is beauty and much love to be found in this life.  Everything that God allows into our lives points back to Him.  How much more amazing is Gods answer after a hard journey than He just giving you want you asked for without the pain. 
You may be going through something right now that has you wanting to let go and give up hope, don’t.  Your path may seem impossible and God may seem quiet....go forward in obedience trusting His will is best...but hope.  Reach, push....go in His strength. 
I don’t know if any of this makes any sense...but there it is for right now.
Also someone sent me a song on youtube...I just really want to post the lyrics. 
I've been waiting to dance with you
In fields full of colors you've never seen
I've been waiting to show you beauty
You never dreamed that's always been in you
I've been waiting to see you tremble as you're embraced
By a world saturated with my love
I've been waiting for the day when at last I get to say
My child you are finally home

Sing O son of Zion
Shout O child of mine
Rejoice with all your heart and soul and mind
For you are finally home

I've been waiting to watch you realize
What all your longing was for
I've been waiting to show you the thread of grace
That ran through all your pain
I've been waiting to let you drink the water of which
Your greatest joy on earth was just a taste
I've been waiting for the day when at last I get to say
My child you are finally home

Sing O son of Zion
Shout O child of mine
Rejoice with all your heart and soul and mind
Sing O daughter of Zion
Cry out O child of mine
Dance with all the strength that you can find
For you are finally home

Every tear you cried dried in the palm of my hand
Every lonely hour was by my side
every loved one lost, every river crossed
Every moment, every hour was pointing to this day
*I've been longing for this day*

I am longing for that day:)
