God speaks

This is just a candid post about what God has been saying to me lately.  I have been reading this book called "Mission of Motherhood".   The thing that has really stood out to me is how to follow Christ's example in how He treated his disciples for raising my own children.  Christ took so much of His time to be with them, talk to them, teach them, find out what they were thinking, and He allowed them to witness His ministry on earth first hand.  Christ did not give everyone the time He gave to His disciples.  He spent a good part of His time pouring into them.  he was equipping them to change the world and that is what we should equip our children to do as well, but make no mistake about it,  it requires a huge sacrifice of time, energy, and your own agenda.  It means to lay down your own life.  Somehow this Word from God has taken up root in my heart and I Feel it growing in me..  I am going to tell u something powerful.  Do you know that as soon as I relax and give myself over entirely to God's  purpose, I start getting phone calls from friends and family in need.  The key to getting God to use you in the lives of others, is surrendering yourself to the needs that are in your own home.  But wait a minute, this does not look like what u think its going to look like.  Sometimes you think you are suppose to have certain things together.  But God wants to use you with things just the way they are.  he wants to use you in the state you are in when you surrender to Him.  There is a certain posture, and it looks different for everybody, that we have to be in to live a surrendered life.  But to often we get out of that posture trying to "fix things up". But the very moment when you are willing to "surrender all" again, pause and look around you.  Don't try to fix anything, you are right where you are suppose to be..........It might not look like it but you are.  You might look like a hot mess!!  Don't try to fix it,  God will fix it.  Jesus tells us
Matthew 6
28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of 
these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

Do you think God wants you to look beautiful?  He does!!! Aren't the lilies of the field beautiful.  Matter-a-fact how much beauty resides in God's creation as a whole??? A lot!!!!  Don't look to the worlds devices to be beautiful,  God has His own way to beautify His people.  You wanna know how???

Psalm 149:4

New King James Version (NKJV)
For the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the humble with salvation

Wow it says that salvation beautifies us!!!! salvation means a whole lot more than being
saved to live for eternity in heaven with God.  It is chock full of benefits for you to believe God for right now!!!!i know we often don't understand how all this works, but you have to let God work His ways, they are not out ways, But they work and His works last forever

remember God brings beauty out of unexpected places and His spirit moves in area of chaos and brings order
