What an amazing week I've had!!!
I won't go into complete detail....but God has really spoke to me this week about some things....not all of them pleasant, mind you....but at least He showed me some things that I need to change....because He wasn't getting the glory in some of my thoughts and actions....and words!!!
And....HE also spoke to me thru a sweet friend....even though I didn't like what I heard....at first....I took her words to heart....and prayed about it....and realized that her words were from the Lord!!!
So....this morning....I decided to "turn over a new leaf"....and what I found under it....was pure JOY!!
I have to say....that I honestly am getting to the point in my life....that God's reprimand....feels good!!! Reminds me of when Jess was little....and she would be so mean.....such a little rascal....wouldn't mind....and it was almost like she was begging to be corrected. So...being the good Momma that I was....she got a spanking....and it always amazed me at the difference it made in her. I think sometimes my rebellion is just my way of asking God to HELP....to step in and take over because I'm really messing things up....and He "spanks" me in His own way.....and oh, what a difference it makes in me!!!
So....are any of you rebelling....wanting things your way?
Why not ask God to shine His Light into your heart....and see if there are some things in there that might not be true....and honest?
Job 5:17 (NLT)
"But consider the joy of those corrected by God!
Do not despise the discipline of the Almighty when you sin."
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
