How BIG is your God?

This week Satan has been hard at work. Not so much in my life, but in the lives of those who surround me and in the lives of those whom I love. Each day the enemy tried harder than the first when his attempts to destroy didn’t surpass the Lord’s power to overcome. And each day, my heart grew weary as Satan planned another attack.

But the Lord put the words on my lips and the actions in my heart to guide and minister to those hurting. And as the Lord used me to walk them through their tunnels of darkness I felt my purpose grow another level. I’m learning to embrace every opportunity and form relationships with those He sends my way.
Some of those I ministered to I’ve known for years and others I hadn’t known at all. It was by God’s grace and power a friend of mine told my story to another, bringing encouragement and inspiration to a weary soul. This weary soul approached me with gratitude and thankfulness and a new friendship formed.
I am in AWE of the power of the Almighty.
I’ve seen firsthand just how BIG the Lord truly is. I’ve known it in my mind for years, but my heart experienced it this week. So never doubt what the Lord is doing in your life with the talents He has given you. Do some soul searching, discover your talents, pray for opportunity and then embrace all that He brings before you.

If you feel so inclined post your talents and how you plan to serve in the comments. I’d love to know how the Lord is working in your life or using you in the life of others.

  1. I'm doing my best every day to use my artistic talent to please God with my Autumn Angel Art business, but sometimes it's difficult to know when you're doing the right thing. At least, sometimes what I think society wants may go against what God wants. Does that make sense?

    1. Way to go Autumn! You are a very talented artist! Society will most often go against what God wants, but as long as you continue to let the spirit inspire you, great things will happen :)

  2. I have attempted 2 times to comment on this entry. Either my phone was messing up or I needed to update my Google ID info. :) So... Quickly. I have been blessed by friends of the faith this week and am truly grateful for their willingness to see a need and act on it! I am truly blessed.

    I will hope to bless others this week by being patient, understanding, respectful of opinions, and kind to my students and their parents. We will have a lot of upset students after they realize they did not get in their summer aid forms and were dropped for nonpayment on Friday. :(

    have a blessed week! Love you! And thank you so much for your blog! :)
