It has been awhile since I wrote a note here. Life has reminded me of carnival rides with the Tile-A-Whirl and roller coasters taking top prizes!
The devotionals that I have written in the last few months have a discernible thread about trusting God on a daily basis. Trusting Him enough to allow Jesus to set my daily schedule. When I do that, I have the time I need to pray and get quiet in a quality “come away” time, trusting God that all my “to do” list, will get checked off in the right time, His time.
If I am a “new creation” after committing my life to Jesus then it is in the daily, ordinary choices and moments of my life that I choose to allow a radical change to come into my life. It is not a “faith face” of change, like when I put on make-up to cover a bruise. The bruise and injury is till there no matter how well the make-up conceals. Jesus wants to change me at the cellular level so that every aspect of my thinking and coping is changed.
I believe that is when my life becomes the tool in the Savior’s Hand that changes lives. My life becomes a Living Witness to Jesus Christ. People sense the truth of the power of God in a life. A simple encounter can take a smile and a moment of eye contact to a life-changing level because it is the Holy Spirit’s power that flows through me to a hurting child.
Will I allow the Holy Spirit to enter my life – totally – and decide that Jesus’ way is my way?
