Good morning again, Friends: I hope you had a wonderful day of peace yesterday. I would love to hear how you were blessed! It would be well, I think, if we could do that more often, testify to each other of what the Lord is doing in our individual lives. I want to make this blog more of a place like that where I can share very personally how the Lord is speaking to me and, hopefully, some of you will do the same.
(Revelation 12:11) Let’s overcome our enemy by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony...
Some of you may recall that I have been attempting to do some writing, beyond the meanderings of this blog. I would like to ask those of you who follow this blog to pray for me to be found faithful about actually doing what the LORD is asking of me at this time in my life. I believe it is to write what He has taught me and continues to teach me or at least remind me of things that I have learned in the past, but for the moment, am not remembering and, therefore, not living out of them. God, help me!
Yesterday, in my time with the Lord, I heard some good words which I would like to share with you this morning. My scripture reading found me in the fourth chapter of Ephesians where I was reminded to “walk worthy of the calling” to which I have been called. Walking, to me, indicates a step by step process toward a goal.
On that peaceful snowy Sunday afternoon, I had actually written out a goal sheet to help me to get some writing done. I figured that was a good “first step” on the road to the finished product. You have heard the saying "a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step." As the second step, I shared it with a few intimate friends and asked them to pray for me and hold me accountable to actually do this thing. Wow, I could not believe the response I got from them in the way of encouragement! Thank you, my friends! You know who you are!
Is there something that you and your Lord have been talking about for awhile and yet you are holding back for whatever reason? Take a first step toward that goal today. With His help, you can do it! Believe Him! Do not believe anyone else, especially the voices in your head that tell you about your inadequacy! Just agree with them and cast yourself on Him! You cannot, that’s true! He can do it through you, but not without you! That’s what He told me! We each have a special message to share and it is our part to contribute. No one else can tell our story! Go ahead, begin to do what you know is the next step!
As for me, I am going to go and do the same! Let’s pray for each other today! I pray that the Son of God with His Life, Light, Love. and Leadership will be shining brightly into all of our lives today and we can overcome all our enemies and be obedient to the heavenly vision which we hear today!
