Truth Aligns

This weekend I went to a short conference by a passionate preacher who couldn't stop talking about Jesus and treasuring His Word.

I left thinking, I need to read my whole Bible again, I'm not sure I read it right before.

God's Word has always been an adventure to me.  I love how it continues to pour our life and truth - things you've read a hundred times suddenly come to life in a new way as the Spirit teaches and leads you into all truth.

The past year - but especially last few months I have felt a great discomfort. My mind's been filled with a multitude of questions - am I doing what you've called me to, Lord?  Am I supposed to be a teacher? A writer?  If I quit now, would I miss out? Are my dreams too big?  Too small?  What if I choose door A or B?  Is there a C I don't know about?  Should I move?  Should I stay?  

Everything feels like itchy wool - not altogether unpleasant, but a little uncomfortable. 

But with these itchy moments, my spirit has been compelled to stop - and pursue the only One who brings comfort, anchoring, and peace.  Jesus.

I'm finding that my life is a perfect fit in Christ.  Sure, there are things I long for and prayers to pray, but my source for feeling right at home, even with the unknowns is in Jesus.  

His Truth aligns my life.
