Up, Up and Away-June’s WOW-From Chicklit Power

Coffee Hour!

Thanks so much for joining me for our Coffee Hour! I treasure these times, when we can share without the distractions that life always brings. Grab your coffee and come on in. It’s that time of the month again – no, not that, our WOW time! 🙂 🙂

Is it really already June? I realized the other day that I never got back to the WOW rewind series that I started the year with! Whew, maybe soon; it’s just that HE keeps giving me other things and so I guess when He takes me back there, we’ll go. In the meantime, I am so excited to share how this month’s WOW came to me and now you!

Gosh, where do I start for those of you who are new to our Coffee Hour without boring those who have been with me for a while? Excuse me while I bow my head in prayer for a minute so I don’t just start babbling! 🙂

up, up & away . . .

There are so many things that HE is using to teach me about humility and thus allow it to soak into my bone marrow so as not to be lost. Up until about a year ago, when I started to pray for this virtue, I thought that my marriage was the most prominent thing HE was using to give me a dose of humility here and there. Now I can see He is using many things to bring humility into my heart that it may run through every cell of my being.

I’ve been reading this book by Andrew Murray called “Humility, the Journey toward Holiness,” and wow, have my eyes ever been opened. I’ve come to realize that this writing journey and the journey to publication has been a huge lesson in humility. My understanding of humility also increased when my stepson moved in and it really heated up — like a hot air balloon — when his precious two-year-old, our grandson, joined us just six months ago. Now the lessons have increased and intensified!

So that’s a condensed version to bring you somewhat up to speed for our WOW and let me tell you, a year ago, before I started praying for humility, I never would have gained this understanding when reading this verse, which I have read time and time again. It is now speaking a different message because of where HE has me! I love when that happens; don’t you? The Scripture comes to life in our own life, confirming the truth within.

We’ll pick up right here tomorrow with the conclusion to our monthly WOW, but before we go, let me share with you our words of wisdom for June found in the book of James, Chapter 4, Verse 10: “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up.”Now let me leave you with this image: Imagine a big hot air balloon on the ground, getting ready for takeoff and your body is in the bucket, waiting to be taken up, up and away while your spirit is standing just a few feet from the hot air balloon, watching, and waiting.

waiting to go up, up and away
