Abiding In Anticipation

By Carol Blansett

As a new year has arrived, I am currently abiding in anticipation, resting in the Lord until His direction is made clear. He has given me gifts to use for His glory, but has allowed me to rest and recover in the past year.

The previous year, 2006, was a very difficult one in many ways: one in which my dear mother left this life to abide with Jesus. In addition, I suffered an injury and subsequent short term disability for a period of time, forced to rest and recoup at home for six weeks’ time.

To make the year even more interesting and uncomfortable, a very hot summertime week in July and a very cold early December week found my home without electricity due to storms in the area. Talk about contrasts . . . too hot to sleep, then too cold and dark, early!

My desire is to be able to be faithful in church attendance and an upcoming Beth Moore class ~ opportunities to fellowship and grow “as a well watered tree by the river.”

I am thirsty!

Again, with supreme anticipation, I await God’s direction for my life for the future.
