As I sit at my kitchen table, in my little breakfast nook, watching cardinals eat from the birdfeeder outside my window (instead of squirrels, for once!), I’m struck once again by how idyllic all this is. Sitting at home, with as much time for writing and researching as I choose, pursuing something I’ve only ever dreamt about. Yet, even the most idyllic circumstances can be fraught with uncertainty.
In my case, it is uncertainty that I am doing the right thing pursuing this. But God reminded me again today as I did my daily Bible reading, of a promise that, I think, fits Idyllwood rather well:
“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19
How lovely is that? No matter my path forward, He will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
