We just started Galatians in the MissionalWomen app and I'm using the brand new Galatians journal that walks through the 6 P's and I am LOVING it. God's Word is just so powerful. I love how you can read the same thing over and over and the Lord can use it to speak to right where you're at.
Everyday this week the Lord keeps pointing out practical ways to trust Him with my kids. For instance God had a plan for Paul's life from the womb but by his early years you would never know it. He brought about so much pain and suffering and evil. He killed Christians for goodness sake. Yet, this was all allowed as part of God's plan so that He would be more glorified. God sees that pain, suffering and evil serve a bigger purpose.
A couple of my kids tend to be on the act first, think about it later side. They are self-pleasers with a flare for the dramatic. My hope is that they would not have to experience pain and would be able to be self-controlled and live for Jesus rather than ending up in jail. But the Lord reminded me that His plan just may involve pain and suffering in their life. And as much as I would hate that, He will be glorified. That gives me hope.
The Lord also has kept bringing to mind how everything good is a gift from Him. The ability to understand the Gospel is only possible because He helps our brains and hearts understand. What a gracious God!
We exist to glorify God, to display His heart and character. And I just love how we are all uniquely built to do that. So every Friday I want to give you, uniquely designed by God, an opportunity to link up your thoughts on God, art, baking, photography, parenting, marriage, homeschooling, writing or blogging and more if they tie into or display the Lord somehow.
Here's how it works.
1. Link up as many blog posts as you want below by clicking the link below and following the prompts. (Perhaps think of old posts you want more exposure to as well as new ones.)
2. Let your readers know by including a link at the bottom of your post (or somewhere on your side bar) or paste my button code (found below and on the side bar).
3. Take a minute to visit and comment on another sweet lady or two's post. You're encouragement might be just what she needs to keep pressing on in being a voice in the darkness.
