It’s time for a coffee date with God. It’s time to sit back and consider my week, my life, the things that He has been teaching me. And you know what? I’m at a complete loss.
The past week was a hard one. Just plain hard.
What did I learn? That God is faithful.
What do I need to keep learning? That God is faithful.
What can I look back on and know with absolute certainty? That God is faithful.
I keep telling myself I won’t forget. But I do. So, so often.
Does that break His heart? It breaks mine a little.
In the Old Testament, the Israelites built an Ebenezer: Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the LORD has helped us.” – 1 Samuel 7:12
I have a dream of one day constructing my own Ebenezer, a reminder of the faithfulness of God. But why do I have to wait for someday? Why is this the least important thing on my to-do list? Why don’t I build one now? Because you know what? I need one now.
Maybe I will spend this week meditating on this verse and planning my own Ebenezer…I think it’s past time I had one.
