You all, it’s been an amazing thing having started this blog, for a few years this has been a calling on my life and a dream stirring in my heart. It’s amazing to finally be walking it out and see God so faithfully answer His promise.
I remember 5 years ago, I was putting away laundry, I can picture my hand reaching up to hang a freshly laundered shirt in my closet. My marriage was in shambles, our finances were a complete mess, and my life was nothing like I had imagined it to be. I was feeling very disappointed with it all and was pondering if God could still use me.
I wasn’t even “praying”, but God spoke in that moment through my thoughts, and told me I was in a season of preparation, that everything I was going through and doing, even the laundry, was building experience to be able to minister. I was immediately filled with joy and so thankful! It made something as minuscule as making my bed feel like I was putting the kingdom of heaven first.
Have you ever felt like the work you are doing at home with your kids is super insignificant? Or have you felt like you’re not getting anywhere? I’ve been a stay at home mom for the past 12 years and often battle thoughts about how behind I might be to other people in the work force. I laugh, because I can think of a time I was scrubbing the kitchen floor and thought to myself, one day at my funeral all they will have to say is, “Well, she mopped her kitchen floor!”😆
God is so faithful! Wherever you are in your life, don’t let doubt entrap you! I see more now than ever how all the strands of his handiwork were so perfectly placed at just the right time, in just the right order to make me into his masterpiece for just the right purpose. I am not complete, but I can just see the piece forming into a clearer picture. It’s making more and more sense.
“So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose. For he knew all about us before we were born and he destined us from the beginning to share the likeness of his Son.” Romans 8:28-29 TPT
Father, Thank you for your faithfulness! Thank you that we are not wondering aimlessly through this universe, but just like you have the Earth placed on the perfect path around the sun to keep it warm enough for life, you are orchestrating every detail of our life! 🙌🏼 Help us to constantly trust in you, and know that you are the potter and we are the clay, always being molded into a masterpiece of perfection, for your glory. -Amen
