Good morning ladies-
Well it's been an eventful week. I think I've rested from my week long business trip and I hope my fingers still know how to type at hyper-speed because I wanted to get this message to you. Hopefully, you have all read what Anne Graham Lotz wrote on her blog and you have found a passion for the mission. I know that she is an inspiration to me. Her inspiration is Jesus and that means we are working for the same man!
I heard someone say yesterday the greatest salesmen is one that sells what can't be seen. Think about it for a minute. I have a product I'm trying to sell and I can show it and people can see what it does. I believe in it because I can show them the value. What about something you can't see? What about Jesus?
That's the question I have been asking myself all along. How do we really look at things and do we believe more in what we see than what we believe. The answer is yes. It is easier for us to believe in tangible things than to believe in a God. We can't see Him or feel Him so therefore, He must not exist. Yet those of us that follow know He exists and we are waiting.
Several things have challenged me over the last week. Sales is one of the most challenging of industries. Mostly, you have to put your faith in your product and in yourself. I rarely know the outcome and I have to keep challenging myself to move forward. I have to believe that Jesus will bring the business as long as I work for it.
My faith often gets challenged but then I hear, "Trust in me." Those three words have helped me scale tall buildings, persevere through the frigid cold and helped me rest when I didn't know where to turn. Jesus has been my Father, my Husband and my Friend. He has been everything as long as I was willing to run to Him. And boy have I run!
The beginning of this week was no different. The walls are tall, the competition steep and the stress astronomical. So what do I do, I take down everything I believe in that resembles the world and look for the unseen.
So here I am writing at the crack of dawn and all I want to leave you with is the Word by which we should be living. I can't see God or heaven. I can't feel His touch or hear His words. All I have is a Bible that someone took time to write so that all of us would have the ability to hear His words. Three in One. Does anyone truly know what that means? I do! We have a God that loves us and it's our time to call upon Him and look for what we can't see rather than what we want to see.
A while back I asked you to pray for Syria. Events are unfolding and many have perished. Please continue to pray for our world. People are dying at dictator's hands and all we can do is pray. Our world is full of war, famine and evil but we must stand in the gap and believe that God, who is unseen, will prevail.
May today steer you closer to our Lord and may the power of the Holy Spirit come down on this earth and turn people toward Him. God bless my sisters!
Psalm 20:7 NIV
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
Like you, this will be my prayer today. For all I need is Jesus and in Him I must trust that He will prevail upon this earth. May His kingdom come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. I'm out of time today but I love You with all my heart and I pray that many hearts are turning toward God. Be well my sisters and pray for each other. We have many miles that span between us but our hearts yearn for One!
