….and I am beyond THANKFUL!
It had been “one of those days” on the day the October kit arrived in my mailbox. As I opened the kit, my eyes immediately went to the title of this month’s devotional which is titled, “God Can.”
As I sat down to read, tears swelled up and I knew the timing of the reminder was no coincidence! We all have a mental list of ALL the things we must tackle. Sometimes, only minutes after waking, I am completely overwhelmed wondering if indeed God chose the right person for the job!
TRUTH: Not only does He choose us but He also equips us! Oh how quickly I forget…it is Him in me instead of me, me, me!
For this entry, I wanted to document these AMAZING (weight lifting) Truths! Everything I used….stamps, stickers, and washi are all included in the kit. I journaled several verses on the backside:
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. Philippians 1:6
He equips you with everything good to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:21
If you fall into the same trap as I do, won’t you join me? Instead of feeling overwhelmed and completely burdened before getting up from bed, let us give thanks for the list….for allowing us to serve Him and being chosen as His vessels. AND then, let’s surrender the day acknowledging that it is Him working in and through us…fully equipping us for the work He has prepared!
May we find our rest and fully trust in Him to bring about His Kingdom work. To God be the glory forever and ever!
Be sure to pick up this month’s kit. It is full of inspiration!
Love in Christ,
