Today we celebrated what we are calling TA-Day (Trust Adventure Day). It’s the day that God took us on this crazy journey of faith together as a family. He has worked deeply on our hearts, filling us with a grace so astounding that I dare say we will never be the same! I wanted to write something tonight that captures what Jesus has done in the Wiechman family this year, but no words really come…just a profound sense of gratefulness and expectation.
That’s not to say this year was easy…that is was not! Jamie says that Christians should be the ones that laugh the loudest and cry the hardest. We have definitely experienced that this year!
So on this first annual TA-Day, I pray that you and your family will come to know the depth of the riches of God’s grace in Jesus – that your heart would be full of gratefulness for all he has done and expectant for all he will do.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The Lord is faithful to all His promises and loving toward all He has made. The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all look to You and You give them their food at the proper time. You open Your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
~ Psalm 145: 13-16 (NIV)
WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO DO SOMETHING FOR ME?? Would you post one of your favorite scripture passages in the “Leave a Reply” box at the bottom of this page? One of the things that stood out to me this year was how often God used His Word through others to bring light and life to our journey. Thanks for taking time to share.
Love you all! One of my favorite passages is from Romans. This was also the text from my mom’s funeral.
These verses are so powerful. Almost every funeral I’ve ever had the honor of presiding at, I spoke these verses of comfort and assurance.
“If God is for us, who can be against us?…nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Thanks for sharing.
Psalm 130 has been pursuing my thoughts lately. Esp verse 5. “I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;”
Waiting has been a huge theme for us this year. Not just any old waiting, but waiting on the Lord in hope and expectation…and even in tears. Thanks for being one of our safe places to stop and wait on the Lord this last year! Love you all.
May the Master pour on the love so it fills your life and splashes over on everyone around you. ! Thessalonians 3:12 (MSG)
I love this! Just read this observation of Dietrich Bonhoeffer by an English officer who was imprisoned with him:
“Bonhoeffer always seemed to me to spread an atmosphere of happiness and joy over the least incident and profound gratitude for the mere fact that he was alive…He was one of the very few persons I have ever met for whom God was real and always near.”
Thanks for sharing your verse!
