Going and Growing... His Way...


For My thoughts are not your thoughts, 
neither are your ways My ways,” declares יהוה.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, 
so are My ways higher than your ways, 
and My thoughts than your thoughts."
Isaiah 55:8-9


Abba reminds me of the above often...
for which I am thankful.
 
His thoughts are not our thoughts...
our ways are not His ways...
His are higher... so much higher...
so far above and beyond our own.


He put before us, again, a tangible reminder...
... as we, once again, began to contemplate and plan retirement
and settling here in California, where He brought us two years ago...

... yet, in a series of events, He has called us elsewhere...
again...

... not our thoughts... not our ways...
but His
.


I reflect on how something just like this happened 
just a little over two years ago...
as we were just about to buy a house and retire
... and received orders to go to California.
There was so much He was teaching me...
so much He is teaching me still...
and as I look back on all He did and how He lead us,
I am humbled and overwhelmed 
by the love of my Abba...
and how He works all things for good
to those that love Him.
And my heart fills with love... and praise.
 
 
... so we begin taking steps...
steps on this path that He has us on...
this time leading back to the east coast...
to Virginia.
... because His thoughts are not our thoughts...
and our ways are not His ways...
because He is good... 
He's just SO good.


His leading us to California will forever remain
branded in my heart...
for it is here that He opened my eyes ...
here where He removed the veil...
here He wiped away the scales...
where He, in lovingkindness and in His perfect timing...
 
led me ... and restored me... to His Torah...
 


... and changed my life...
for ever


... I look ahead with hope...
and with thanksgiving...

Baruch HaShem YHVH!


"All the paths of יהוה are kindness and truth, 
To those who guard His covenant and His witnesses."
Psalm 25:10

I'm so glad He's moving y'all back this way. Maybe we'll get to meet for real now.

Oh wow, back East again. Yes, His ways are higher. And I suppose you got rid of all your winter gear. I'll be waving as you drive by my friend and praying for to find a great assembly to belong to soon.
