Oh Sisters, how in the world do I recap this week chock full of so much that stirred my heart?! The fun thing is knowing that the Holy Spirit is out there stirring your hearts too, and it may all be in very different ways. He is speaking to us very specifically right where we are in our own little worlds. Do you find that as amazing as I do?
I hope you were able to take this last week and get caught up if you were behind. I was thankful for the break so I could go back and do two days that I missed last week while my daughter was home sick. We're on the home stretch now, so don't give up!!
I want to concentrate today on one of the bullet points on page 143 that truly spoke to me:
"He is holy and worthy and incapable of abusing His divine authority over you. So submit to God."
Do you believe this? Do I believe this?
Read it through again and really soak in what that statement is saying.
As I have re-read this over a period of several days, I have come to the conclusion that my faith is not sincere unless I wholeheartedly believe this statement. If I believe God for who he says he is, and believe all his attributes, how do I continue to assert my will and my control over my life and decisions?
I am stubborn, and in my arrogance I think that I know what is best for me. But God has the entire plan laid out in front of Him. Why can I not trust everything I am to Him?
Does this hit close to home for you as well? I need a change in thinking and action on this one!
What else spoke to you this week? Are you writing out the book of James?
