God is molding us, like a potter molds the clay. His ways are purposeful, careful, creative, and gentle yet firm enough to get the right effect, because He knows what He is preparing us for in the months to come, He knows how He is going to use us.
We don’t wander off on purpose. We just get so easily distracted by something or run aimlessly.
Do I need a reminder to remain?
Over and over again our God reminds us that His beauty is greater than our perception of ourselves in the mirror, or how the world would define beauty.
the goal is Jesus. Our hope is in Him
My walk with Him is largely affected by developing the muscles of support for my walk. Some of those are the muscles of prayer, Bible Study, community, accountability, and serving.
A few weeks ago I woke up with the reminder that “I am a child of God.” It has changed some things…
The pressure of trying to be all things to all people lessens when I am focused only on HIM being everything I need! My identity becomes the overflow of that singular focus. The honest part is…its a journey.
