Tonight will be the last night we sleep under the same roof together. Ever. (Insert sad face.)
I remember our first meeting and how I knew God wanted me to connect with you. I had no idea back then that you would be in my inner circle. That for nearly a year you would be a confidant, a friend and a vital prophetic voice for me in this season. He has used you in so many ways…I’m sure you are unaware of all of them.
I needed to heal in my home, and I did while living alone, but then you brought a whole other level of healing. Maybe one day we will get to know exactly how much.
I remember driving to our first get-together, feeling so empty, and at the same time so full with God. “I have nothing to offer her Father. I don’t have the testimony I would want at her age. All I have is the cross”. I spoke these words out loud during that drive and when I met you it became clear to me that the cross was all you wanted.
You are an amazing woman Lianna Mueller and if my blog was created simply just to meet you, well, then its purpose has been fulfilled. I tried my best to be transparent in this journey of the cross. I did not want to falsely portray what being disciple is. It’s hard. It’s really, really hard. But when you’re chosen you have the grace and supernatural ability to lay down those things so dear. Over and over again.
You my friend are chosen. And I am so honored to also have been chosen to be written into your story.
And then you brought along Benny, and I was touched, knowing that this too was an answer to a desire I had buried.
There were so many funny moments and late night talks and encouraging words and prayers. You are a gift and I’m so happy to have been able to experience who you are to Him.
You are a reminder that even when our story doesn’t look the way we want it to, or think it should, there are still great surprises around the corner. There are still fingerprints of the Father’s love and care as we courageously move forward on this unchartered path.
My prayer for you is that you will grow in security and confidence in who He created you to be. That He will keep molding you and shaping you and showing you destiny, promise and purpose. His ways are not like ours, but they can be so much better. Let Him draw you in with His love until you are face-to-Face with the Creator. When you do, you will see that His Face is actually a reflection of your true self.
Many blessings to you in your next season and may He give you the very desires of your heart.
Your sister and friend,
What a sweet way to honor your roomie?! The time goes so fast, and it is such a blessing to see how God loves us in unexpected ways.
