Not even sure what I want to say, I may just ramble but I have to post something. If not for anyone except me. So that I won't forget what God has shown me tonight. Finishing up Week 3 of One in A Million by Priscilla Shirer.
If you haven't done this study, you need to and please do it with someone that will keep you accountable. I have wanted to quit no less than 25 times. But, I know that I can't. I won't. But I want too. I know that this study is "for such a time as this" in my life. I thank God for placing it on Deidre's heart for our Fall Study. I also, have secretly decided numerous times that I should just end this friendship. Do you have that friend that just keeps you accountable no matter what? Sometimes, I (the flesh me) doesn't care to hear it. Even though its TRUTH.
Anyway, speaking of truth an exercise on Day 4, I just have to put it on here in case I lose my note card.
Phil 4: 4, 6 & 8.
whatever is true.....
I am ~
unworthy ~ He is my REDEEMER, fear not for I have redeemed thee Isaiah 43:1
useless ~ I am a mother, wife, daughter, friend....He will never leave me
confused ~ "let me never be put to confusion" Psalm 71:1
defeated ~ God is my refuge & strength Psalm 46:1
depressed ~ the rivers shall not overflow me! Isaiah 43:2
discouraged~ He has a plan... Jeremiah 29:13
Now when I am feeling one of these on this list ... I need to fight it with TRUTH from God's word!!
(taken from One In A Million)
HE IS GOD and I am NOT! Another truth... yes I know I am not God....but I can allow satan to tempt me with being a "little god". I need to learn to trust that God works on my behalf regardless of what I am facing. No matter what I should HONOR HIM. I know that I will face trials in my life and I don't have to allow them to derail my relationship with HIM. He will make a way for me to experience HIS greatness.
Trusting God to work in my life in His ways not mine is what I am praying. His ways are HIGHER and He has so much more for me if I will TRUST HIM with all of me....not just the parts I don't think I can handle.
I need to do this
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10
Lord this is what I desire..... Please do it or something better!!!
Praying & expecting!
