God’s Beautiful Script

Blessing-Quotes-and-verse

God can write the most beautiful things.  As I dream and write ideas down I have to laugh because I often wonder why I can’t have these in reality.  The romantic things that come to mind I have lived some but have yet to live others.  But as soon as I ponder this question God reminds me that you are still young and your new life has just begun.  I’m his baby of almost 4 … decades old.

He has so many great plans for me that I can’t even imagine; which I am grateful for because it sweetens the surprise.   Even through loneliness I find comfort with to do list of redoing Sela’s bedroom and ideas for renovating the kitchen and then working on my book and script.  I’m definitely not bored… haha.

I did make the mistake of telling Sela, a 9 year old, I was working on her room yesterday and of course I received several text asking if I was done with it in a matter of 30 minutes.  I am her wonder woman and she believes I can do anything.  I will be lucky if I get done before she comes home.  The Lord has me moving and shaking so as I act out his beautiful script I am thankful for living, I’m thankful for the people who do love me, my home, and all the other littles things he provides for me.

This is a year of Thankfulness and many blessings to come.

 

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”

A Purpose Driven Heart

rivers03

Your heart represents the source of all your motivations-what you love to do and what you care about most.  Another word for heart is passion.  Don’t ignore your interests.  Consider how they might be used for God’s glory.  There is a reason that you love to do these things.  (Warren, R. 2013, p.215)

Often when we suffer a great loss we feel lost.  It happen to me last year.  I suffered a great loss and I couldn’t understand what God was doing.  I was tired of feeling like I didn’t belong here or with anyone. Wondering what God’s plans were for me. I felt lost.  A friend suggested I read “A Purpose Driven Life” and so I did.  For this very reason, our program with Acting Out For Love Corp. has been built.  Without purpose we feel useless and lost and therefore we usually become destructive to ourselves and the people we love.  Find your purpose and live for God.  You will enjoy life so much more once your eyes are opened to the blessings that he has given to you.

Through our pain it is hard to see what we already have from God; take off the blinders.  Surrender yourself right now and experience something more powerful than you can ever imagine.

As a face is reflected in water, so the heart reflects the person.  Proverbs 27:19

Serve the Lord with all your heart.  1 Samuel 12:20

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.  Proverbs 4:23
