Chapter 3 of What Happens When Women Walk In Faith by Lysa Terkeurst was titled God Has A Plan. Wow does He have a plan for you and me. His plan is to make us more like Him. As I ponder on that and how hard I work to be more like Him, I realize more and more the harder I try that I am NOT ANYTHING like Him. The more I grow, the more I see I am still just a mere baby in Christ.
He loves us to death, he loves us immensely with an everlasting love. Imagine how you love your children. His love is similar to that, but so much more. He will do anything for you and me, and He already has by dying for us.
For me blogging is a ministry for me – it helps me and grows me to put into words what God is teaching me. I hope it blesses others like it does me. I pray He uses my strengths and my weaknesses to minister to others. And I’ve had a dream for a long time of writing a children’s book, but so far I haven’t written but one draft blog.
“God doesn’t need us to do ministry, but He allows us to be a part of it.” He has a plan for each one of us, seeing each moment of our lives from the beginning until the end. Be willing to take that first step whatever ministry He is calling you to do.
“God has given us a new name, but sometimes we try to put our new name on our old identity”. We have to stop looking back at that old identity and walk in faith. I loved this verse shared in Chapter 3 that reminds us that “those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham”. Are you relying on faith?
Go read What Happens When Women Walk in Faith, you’ll be glad you did, and it’s not too late to check out P31 studies. These studies are so easy to do with us or go to later because previous studies are still right there for reference on the blog. I’ve been doing them for three years now and every single one of them have blessed my soul.
