This is one of her many gifts & talents, haha! Instead of our tissues being stashed in a cute little box I dug for at the grocery store they are all squished inside a metal bucket (a cute one of course) with the rest in the box next to them because seriously who wants to waste all those tissues? It has been allergy season & they get to be expensive! (especially the cute ones)
With all that said, I finally got time today to sit down and soak up God's word and it was exactly what I needed to hear. It just filled my soul. I stand amazed at our God sometimes when he intervines at such divine moments. He knows what our hearts need when we stand broken and empty before him. I continue to stand amazed by Him!
I had picked up my Beth Moore bible study (that is now over) this morning to do one of the lessons that I had missed doing. It was such a good study that I don't want to miss them at all! I just randomly picked one and it was perfect. Here is a little from it and maybe it will be a little boost to your soul too!
First verse I read was this: God's way is perfect. All the Lord's promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. Ps. 18:30
Hello, where was that verse on Wednesday when I needed it? It just goes to show you that you need to soak up God's word, DAILY! Take up your cross, DAILY! Honestly, this was the first week in a long time that I have not been in His word consistently and it shows! I am EMPTY! In the midst of our new routines, busy schedules and the journey of life I NEED to find that time to get into the word. I miss it!
I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness if life and power that comes from God. Eph. 3:16-19
He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. Ps. 40:2
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. Is. 55:9
For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:28
I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. Phil 3:14
Hope you are encouraged my friends as I was today!
