Do you need a reminder of how much God loves you and is working all things for your good? Marina from our Outreach team shares a helpful way to tangibly mark how God relentlessly pursues us and shows His goodness, provision, and faithfulness in our present or past seasons.
By questioning my path, I was putting limits on myself and ultimately putting limits on God’s ability to use me. Once I got past the doubting voice in my head, I said “yes” to ministry.
It's human nature to want to operate independently. In some cases, being independent is a good thing. When it comes to our relationship with God, however, we need to be dependent. Operating from a place of dependence in Christ is not only what He wants for our relationship with Him, it's then reflected on how we go about living our day to day lives.
He gives it to us in a way that is far more abundant and delicious and beautiful than we deserve or need! Think of all the things on this earth that reflect God’s good and abundant grace: sunsets, good food, air conditioning, loved ones, your favorite movie… these things are all God’s grace.
We live in a fast-paced world where it can feel like we never have enough time to do everything we want. Sometimes we have to sacrifice our own personal time in order to fulfill other commits. Often, however, we need to be reminded that when we're serving the Lord, He blesses us abundantly for our sacrifices and even though we may have less time, He will fill our hearts with the joy, energy, and peace we each need.
