I've had some really good ideas throughout the years. I mean tons, of really, really good ideas.
It's actually kinda shocking how many I've had. Like, it even surprises me.
Literally! I go back sometimes and reread from a journal or something will sparks a memory and I'll look it up on my blog, and I'm amazed at the really good stuff there.
And the coolest thing... the thing that brings me to tears to even acknowledge is,
all my good ideas come from God.
The Creator of all things, whispers to me. He shows me pictures He inspires me.
He takes the broken pieces of my life and my mind the confused the distorted the unholy,
the sorrowful the selfish and the sinful,
He rearranges me, and makes me a temple that He will dwell in.
He not only fills me (which is so incredible) He makes me a light on a hill a light house on a storm tossed sea.
Those waves scare me sometimes. At times they hurt me and mach my stability.
But I am built on a rock and filled with such radiant light. I am warmed, my fears, subside and I'm sustained.
I have had some really great ideas in my life.
But just as the sand that formed the bricks of the light house, are due no credit for the light it emits, I humbly stand in awe, at the glory of the Lord. At His mercy and favor at His kindness and splendor.
God, make me a channel of your peace, change me by your peace. And help me to be faithful in bringing you glory, at letting you shine.
Please don't ever let me be embarrassed by how completely unable to hide your light, I am. Please don't let me want to.
Your Light is shocking even to me, it's shocking to the darkness. At times I want to hide. But there you are, bursting at the seams unable to be contained!
I see you in the children I hear you in kind words of strangers. God I need you and you call me higher and you grow me deeper and you somehow make me whole and you sustain me.
He is slow to anger and abounding in love~I don't believe in a mean angry God either. He is patient not wanting any to be lost. Sunday, Aug. 24,2014
Father, it has been brought to our attention in Kim's message today,that You are Faithful in all that You do. God, I do need You to call me higher, and to grow me deeper, and to somehow make me whole as You sustain me.
I thank You, too! May I be responsive to Your Voice, when You speak to me, to guide me each day. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Today’s quote:Psalter – “In His Care confiding
I will sweetly sleep,
For the Lord my Savior
Will in safety keep.” Today’s Bible verse: Micah 7:18"Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity,...he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy."
Some thoughts today:The miracle is"in the house": you and me! Remember where you came from, what all Christ has done in and for you, and share that.
-Whatever you do, say, or write, should be interesting and worth the other person's time.
- Listeners/readers can easily stop paying attention to what we're offering them, if it is hard to understand. They trust we'll have something worthwhile to say.
- Talk about a Holy Spirit encounter, that will get their attention, for sure.
