The holidays have come and gone and here we stand in the beginning of 2020. Another year filled with excitement, opportunities and adventures.
We had a lovely holiday with friends and family. We spent Christmas day with dear friends and the boys had a blast over the festive season.
Luwellan worked all the way through, but got to spend a few days working from home with us over Christmas, but by the 2nd of January we all officially started with our year. Yes, that means even the boys – they started school on the 2nd of January. I never deviate from our routine much, only on very special occasions, as I know my boys, Lu and I all thrive off a good solid routine and it’s best for our whole family.
The real reason for my post, is I wanted to share a moment I had with the Lord over the holiday – maybe one of you can relate.
It was one Friday afternoon and I asked Lu if he would sort out the boys so that I could spend time with the Lord. It started with a soaking session which turned into a full blown worship party on my ace in our lounge. Being overwhelmed by His Presence, I found myself on the floor and Jesus asked me, what I wanted to do this year. My answer – I want to introduce people to You, Lord! The Lord then said to me, You can not introduce people to Me, if you don’t know Me. And that hit my like a brick wall. Here I have been serving the Lord, praising Him, yet my relationship with the True Living God lacks – when last have I actually sat down and spent time with Him?
The Lord then showed me a picture of a burning tree, a beautiful big, burning tree. But the fire did not damage the tree. It was a glorious sight. Yet, the tree was not rooted. It had no roots. Then all of a sudden, the roots grew and wrapped around a Bible. As this happened, the flames of the tree turned blue. The hottest fire.
This beautiful big burning tree was me. The fire was the Holy Spirit. I carry the excitement of the Lord, I carry part of His heart, I want to see the world changed for Him and I want to see the Kingdom come.
But what is all of that, without a relationship with Jesus? And what is all of that, if I don’t truly know the Lord?
My goal for this year, is to spend more time with my Father and in His Word. I want to know Him more. I want to be a burning tree, rooted in Jesus ❤
Till next time mommies,
