Last week was incredibly difficult for me. For a multitude of reasons. And in the midst of it, I honestly wanted to quit and run. Run like Forrest Gump. Keep running and never stop. Maybe then I would finally end up somewhere where I wouldn't feel the need to run again.
You and I both know that wouldn't happen. There will always be difficulties. We live in a fallen world where things just go wrong and life is hard. So, if we can't or shouldn't run away from those problems, what should we do?
Ask God to show you what He wants to teach you in this difficult time. Instead of asking, "Why me?," let us ask, "What do you want to teach me?" So, Thursday night after four days of tears and wounds brought by the enemy, I approached the approachable Savior and asked Him for instruction.
I found clarity in the midst of chaos. God began to lay out for me what He wanted me to focus on - especially in my blog writing. I had been praying for God to help me find my niche in the writing world. This is the result of my time with Him:
eMpowering Mondays - Each Monday, on the blog, facebook page,and twitter, I will focus on unwrapping the gift of God's incredible power. Together we will:
- recognize and record the power of God at work in our lives. (I'll be asking for your stories!)
- learn to access the power of God that is readily available to us.
- discover the value of empowering others to live out their calling as we seek to live out our own calling
I am so excited about this! (I'll be introducing another theme on Wednesday.)
So, for today, I am asking you to help me "tell of the Power of God's awesome works." He is worthy of praise!
Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
They tell of the power of your awesome works—
and I will proclaim your great deeds. Psalm 145: 3 - 6
Now, it's your turn! Leave a comment and tell us about a recent experience where you saw the power of God at work in your life.
Grateful to unwrap this gift of His power together,
