My Utmost for His Highest

Have You Ever Been Alone With God?

"When they were alone, He expounded all things to His disciples."

Mark 4:34

Our Solitude with Him.
Jesus does not take us alone and expound things to us all the time; He expounds things to us as we can understand them. Other lives are parables. God is making us spell out our own souls. It is slow work, so slow that it takes God all time and eternity to make a man and woman after His own purpose. The only way we can be of use to God is to let Him take us through the crooks and crannies of our own characters. It is astounding how ignorant we are about ourselves! We do not know envy when we see it, or laziness, or pride. Jesus reveals to us all that this body has been harbouring before His grace began to work. How many of us have learned to look in with courage?
There is more to it... but this part got to me...just the reminder that little by little he brings us into his world and shows us all sorts of things. It's exciting...it's invigorating...it's scary.

Kind of like ASBC, just the new experiences, the new schedule (craziness) and the new things that are expected of us. Academics is nuts. Crazier than weather class (to me). But the people are great...and I'm excited. So with that said, I'm balancing my laundry...and I gotta hit the books.

If anyone wants to send some lihing sour apples--lemme know I can give you my address.

Trying to love the Lord--
