“yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also” Luke 2:35
“God’s greatest blessings so often come at the cost of our personal comfort. But the more we listen and follow Him the more He can transform us and those around us so His message of love and salvation are known”
Yup, feeling the pressure. Feeling the discomfort.
God’s themes in my life right now seems to be:
- stop planning because as soon as you get a grip I’m going to shake it up (again)
- be uncomfortable. Be good and uncomfortable for Me. He is at work and that is never cushy…I know He’s at work, and satan knows it and we are uncomfortable.
- It isn’t necessarily about me. I am just his clay, He gets to mold me, make me, and use me however HE sees fit…
And right now He may be using my broken and flawed vessel to pour into others… or maybe he is using difficult others to shine lights through my cracks.
And so I tell myself, or He tells me, “relax child, I may pour you out, but I wont leave you empty.”
“God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit” Romans 15:13
