This has been a week of events I definitely would not have chosen, yet I am thankful to know that there is always light at the end of every trial. Although, it is over, my heart is still reeling and ready for respite. It is a time to reflect and reconnect to what the Holy Spirit has encouraged me to do for these last seven years, and I am in need of His encouragement and wisdom in so many ways.
"The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge (our High Tower and Stronghold). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!" ~Psalm 46:10-11 (Amplified Bible)
So help me Lord to follow through with the commitments I make. Help me pursue them lovingly and full of joy of the process.
"Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds." ~ Hebrews 10:24 (New International Version)
Yes, it's been a heart-wrenching few days... I will not lay down and forget "whose" I am.
When we are called, and others question that calling, TRUST in the LORD's leading... the work of the Holy Spirit in your life and pray. Pray, and pray some more... head into the Word, and KNOW that God is present.
We are fortunate people to know God's love, forgiveness and mercies every day - in every way.
The Samaritan at the well - and Jesus met her where she was... and in His love she saw the changes necessary to be His.
Oh to be His... thank You Jesus.
None of us is Selfless, or wholly Christ-like on this earth - and will not be as long as we draw breath. Our job is to love one another... ask questions, allow the Spirit to work in our lives, to submit and glorify every work in our lives to the glory of God.
All to His glory...
Help Your people be like You. Let our character reflect You in our daily activities and toward the Hope that is ETERNITY WITH YOU. Let no part of what I do hinder another brother or sister. Protect my heart Father, as only You can.
HEALING INCLUDES ONIONS...
Peeling, evaluating and correcting the many layers are tough, many tears - but God is good and faithful to those who live for His instruction and obedience.
