Wednesday in the Word {Glorious Unfolding}

Good Morning, Friends!

I am so incredibly overwhelmed by the kind comments & emails I have received over the past week. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. Please know that I appreciate them so & that getting through these valleys in life wouldn't be possible without the prayers & hope we have in Jesus!

Hopefully this will get me started with my usual routine agin. I am still traveling back & forth for family and work so bear with me just a little longer.


Over the past several days I've spoke with many family members and friends about just how much cancer sucks. It's painful, gut-wrenching, downright evil. But, it's part of this world and part of His plan...His glorious unfolding.

I had a really rough day yesterday as I start to transition back into my normal routine. The past week has been a blur but now that reality is setting in, it seems wrong. It honestly hurts to think about life without my friend. I know, without a shadow of a doubt that this is God's plan. Despite my own selfish ideas of what life should look like, it's not what he has in mind.

I was driving yesterday & heard this song for the first time. It's perfect.
Take a listen & then really examine the words below.






Glorious Unfolding

Steven Curtis Chapman

Lay your head down tonight
Take a rest from the fight
Don’t try to figure it out
Just listen to what I’m whispering to your heart
‘Cause I know this is not
Anything like you thought
The story of your life was gonna be
And it feels like the end has started closing in on you
But it’s just not true
There’s so much of the story that’s still yet to unfold


And this is going to be a glorious unfolding
Just you wait and see and you will be amazed
You’ve just got to believe the story is so far from over
So hold on to every promise God has made to us
And watch this glorious unfolding


God’s plan from the start
For this world and your heart
Has been to show His glory and His grace
Forever revealing the depth and the beauty of
His unfailing Love
And the story has only begun


And this is going to be a glorious unfolding
Just you wait and see and you will be amazed
We’ve just got to believe the story is so far from over
So hold on to every promise God has made to us
And watch this glorious unfolding


We were made to run through fields of forever
Singing songs to our Savior and King
So let us remember this life we’re living
Is just the beginning of the beginning


Of this glorious unfolding

We will watch and see and we will be amazed
If we just keep on believing the story is so far from over
And hold on to every promise God has made to us
We’ll see the glorious unfolding


Just watch and see (unfolding)
This is just the beginning of the beginning (unfolding)


Lay your head down tonight



I am so thankful for the hope that is found in Jesus. Aren't you?!
This is a promise I am clinging to this week & know that God's plan is greater. 
It's awesome, unimaginable, and in all ways right. It's not over yet!!

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.   Romans 8:28


Frankly my dear...the story is far from over!

  2. Jenni, I am so, so sorry for your loss. Your friend sounds like an amazing and Godly woman and stay strong in knowing that she is with Him now! I lost a friend to cancer this past summer and it really isn't fair. There's not even words to describe it really. Praying for you and for her family! And thank you for sharing that song- I love it!
