Holy God

4 Sep

Scripture: Exodus 3:5 Then He said “Do not come near here; remove your sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.
Observation: Often I forget that God is pure holiness. Sometimes I rattle off my list of needs, quickly forgetting to worship the great “I AM”.
Application: To enter into prayer with the right attitude of reverence. To remember He is the creator of everything.
Prayer: Lord by Your spirit help me to understand Your Holiness let not fear of You block a right relationship. Let me worship You in spirit and in truth.

A Work In Progress

12 Jul

Scripture:  Philip 1:6 For I am confident of this very thing that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

Observation: When we make mistakes (and we will) it becomes difficult to stay focussed on Christ.  It is so easy to justify our “position”.  No one enjoys a learning curve.  Can we really deny ourselves for the unity of the body?

Application:  It is essential everyday to check yourself.  What are you allowing to stay, wrong thoughts, minor sin, is any junk floating around in you?  Lay it all down.  You are being perfected.

Prayer:  Lord, I am a sinner.  Continue to teach me, guide me, have mercy on me.  I desire to grow more like Christ.  Help me  overcome my blind spots so I can see clearly .

What’s under your label?

28 Jun

I have been working alongside the Afghan community in my home area for the last 4 years. My husband recently retired so we thought it would be a good idea to regroup, refresh, and see what our next phase in life would be. We decided to go on the road. This involved a two fold purpose, one to go to other ministries and use our skills to help out, and two to see America. To accomplish this new adventure I needed to step down from many activities I was involved in within my church. Change is hard….Our labels become a part of who we are. When we peel away our labels what is underneath? Are we still important, usable, worthy? My lables were beginning to feed my ego. I began to feel uncomfortable. I felt that God was showing me it was time to peel them all off and stand before him naked. Change is hard.   The awakening that comes from change is worth the risk.  In having no labels I have the freedom to be renewed, and start fresh. I can no longer hide beneath the labels.  It is time to step out in faith, rely on waiting on God instead of feeling worthy because of all that I “DO”.

Be Still and know that I am God.
