In the Details

I had the sweetest coffee date yesterday with a friend after taking some photos in downtown Franklin, and it was one that definitely encouraged me in my current place with Jesus.  We talked about dreams and visions and the things that He has and continues to press upon our hearts, and just how awesome it is to see Him work it all out.  From an initial vision to watching all of the people and places and pieces come together, there is often no other explanation than God.

That's just the thing: God is both in and working out all of the details.  It doesn't matter how big or how small they may seem to us; it's all in His hands.  And Scripture tells us that, no matter what we do or or where we go or what He may call us to, He will always be faithful.  It's simply who He is.

...if we are faithless, He remains faithful— for He cannot deny Himself.

2 Timothy 2:13

So those dreams and plans and promptings that God puts on our hearts?  Yeah, the deal is still on. And while doesn't necessarily mean that it will happen or look the way we expect it to, we can rest assured knowing that His nature is faithfulness.  What He has started He will complete.

From planting the dream to bringing it to life, it's all His doing in His way and in His timing.  I don't know about you, but just thinking on that takes a huge load off my shoulders.  And I am humbled by and grateful for the fact that, in His omniscience and omnipotence, He has got it all under control.  He is in the details.
