Real Life - Sometimes Things are Good

You know, sometimes things are just going well. Honestly, I have had a chaotic week and now that Friday is here, I have a peculiar sense of peace. Must be God, right? Because I'll tell you that there is no unmiraculous explanation of why I can be calm after the week I'm having. Thank you, Father!

So today I'm just going to leave you with a thought that I have learned from the Beth Moore Bible study (Believing God). that I'm currently involved with. I cannot quote here exactly and I'm not nearly as an effective communicator as she is, but it goes something like this:

In order for a structure to stand, the foundation has to be strong. The depth has to be able to support the whole. Before God can expand the breadth of your ministry, he has to expand the depth so that the whole breadth of it can stand firm.

That's what I firmly believe is going on with me right now. I have such a heart to be working for Him, but He is really having me grow at the moment. Praise Him, He's awesome and He really knows what He's doing. That sounds funny and a bit obvious to state, but sometimes I forget it in the process of living it.

So things are good now. I want to keep growing until I get to the point that He feels that I am ready to be used for His purposes. I guess that is my prayer request for you today.

What about you? Do you have a heavy heart or a burden to lay down? Do you need some divine intervention or just the support of a friend lending a shoulder? Please leave a link here and we'll all pray with you. Remember that Jesus said, "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28) God bless you!
