February 19, 2013 ~ The best Gift of all

And the testimony is this,
that God has given us eternal life,
and this life is in His Son. - 1 John 5:11

Thoughts ~ People who share transparently what and how Jesus has changed their lives are my favorite people to be with and whose books I love the most. I read God’s word daily, several times, on and off, sometimes just one or two verses.  And I embrace His words, taking them into my soul. When He chooses to bring along someone into my life who will share the nitty-gritty, the “how-the-Son of God remade them, that is bliss in the best form for me.  It is how I am encouraged and how my faith is pushed a little further along. I love testimonies of God’s love and faithfulness.  I love God using people to change lives in His world. I love transparency.

Action ~ First, I challenge you to become transparent and not a person who hides what God has been doing and is doing in your life.  Be bold with a loving gracious spirit. And remember that it is not your job to bring people to Jesus: it is the Holy Spirit's. 

My second challenge is to begin keeping a list of what God is doing in your life.  Every single thing, large and small. This will prove invaluable when the enemy of God wants to taunt you with thoughts that God is not present and active in your life.

Prayer ~ Father God, I offer a big amen to all of the thoughts you are tucking into my soul today.  Use them Lord.  Use every single one.

Trusting in the Lord and loving Him with all my heart,
