I am amazed at and encouraged by the boldness of Paul! I just want to sit in the first chapters of Galatians and take it all in. I have (for too long) allowed circumstances, the church, and others to bring me down (not morally-but emotionally and spiritually). No one is to blame but myself. I am thankful for my husband and those from my past that have modeled spiritual disciplines and have lived their lives with a strong passion for Christ. I have been waiting on God to send some people like that into my life....and haven't been focused on living my own life passionately for Him. How'd that happen? too busy and not as disciplined as I should be. Thank you God for never leaving me, for seeing me through everything, and for having a personal relationship with me! Help me to not forget that it is not about me but it's all about you-Your message that lives in me! NOW that's powerful!
....Yes 4 hoots...it is amazing that 1 God has a plan for our lives and 2 He is fully capable of carrying out those plans....if we will submit our lives to Him and seek Him daily. I am just amazed at the level of boldness of some of the biblical characters....you just don't see boldness like that today. Working in a secular field, it is tough to balance love and boldness. I just need to stop trying to balance them myself and just be obedient and let God balance it for me.
