Good morning faithful servants:
How are you? It's been a whirlwind week and so not a lot of writing has occurred. I had to go to Iowa and now I'm leaving for a basketball tournament. The joys of a mom and her career. Sometimes I wish I didn't have a job but then what would I do with my boys leaving me soon.
Well, it has been a great and awesome week. I have been encouraged beyond belief by our Lord and Savior. I have been encouraged by some of you that read this blog. It inspires me to know the words that flow through these fingers is furthering God's kingdom. I am very blessed. He has given me an avenue to use my talent and in return He is spreading our daily bread.
God is a vital part of my life. He has been since I was little. I wasn't saved until I was in my 20's but He always held my heart. I just didn't know what it meant to be one with Him until I took the plunge and gave Him everything. I approach life with Him right beside me. I even pray that He will be before me, behind me and beside me. I really did yesterday. The president of my company and I went in for a major bid yesterday and I had no idea what the outcome would be. I asked the Lord to guide my words and my actions and to provide my clients exactly what they needed. We went with little to show. I wasn't sure how that would go. But I gave it all to Jesus and let Him do the rest. I couldn't really think clearly so I delved into my Bible application on my phone and began to read the words of those before us. I heard to be watchful, to believe and to have faith in our Savior. I heard that someday He will stomp on the head of evil and that evil would be no more and then I read; I'm fearfully and wonderfully made.
I was one of those kids that was awkward. I never had a lot of friends growing up, probably because we moved so often and girls were just mean in my book. I stayed to my room reading books and dreaming of a different life. You know the girl! Well, that was me. No one would no it now because I can talk in front of a crowd without blinking! Crazy when I look back but that awkwardness has really never left. I have to constantly remind myself that Jesus loves me and I was made for Him. Strange but true. Here I sit writing to strangers and I have to remind myself I'm His. Well we all have our little hangups and that's mine. Through the years, I have embraced who I am. I have been mighty in what I believe and I have stood on the principle that I am not perfect but I am His! Praise Jesus!!!
The glory must go to our Maker always. Whether we are cooking dinner for our kids, playing cards with our family, walking around strangers, working or just in the world. We must remember that every thing we see, hear, and smell belong to our Savior. There is no victory in this life unless Jesus is attached.
I won a very big deal for my company yesterday. My boss built it and I sold it. It was beautiful. The first thing I did when I heard was praise Jesus. He is the one that orchestrated it and I know it. He made me for this time, for this company and for this generation. He knows exactly what He's doing. All I have to do is entrench myself in Him by reading and writing and He will do the rest. That doesn't mean the road will always be roses. It hasn't been for me. But there is always victory in Jesus.
If you were an awkward kid or maybe even an awkward adult, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Those of us that weren't beauty queens or the popular girl on the street knows what it's like to not fit in. However, we all fit in through Jesus. The most beautiful woman in the world is full of the same insecurities and the same needs. Why? Because deep down we all know that we are human. Christ knows it to and He's standing at the door reminding us that our strength, our wisdom, our passion and our future are completely His and I am so grateful!
May today find you all well and thank you Aravthu for saying those sweet words. I love Christ and I love you and of course, I will keep on writing for without His words I am lost too!
Psalm 139:13 NIV:
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My prayer today:
O, Lord, my prayer is simple today. Cover the world with Your word. Give us strength to move mountains and always go before us. We need You in our lives, fighting our battles and giving us the capabilities to fight. All Glory, Honor and Power go to You! In the morning, I hear Your call and when I lay my head down, I feel Your Holy Spirit. Continue to make us all the warriors You need and thank You always for being beside us. Without You, we will be crushed but with You we have strength. I have no idea what tomorrow will bring but I know that You are the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords! Be with all of us today as we come before our Maker and praise Him for all the wondrous things You have done. Heal the nations, help the homeless and put people on our hearts. We need You to guide us so that we can love the hopeless. For all that You are and for all that You will be, I thank You Lord for being my savior. Send encouragement to the nations! In Jesus name, AMEN
