I am very excited today because I have been asked to go back to the Christian Jail Ministry this Sunday to speak. As I am learning to trust God on this journey I am on, I am very aware of the fact that I am totally dependent on Him to do this work Sunday. It is His work not mine. I am realizing more and more that I am needing to rely on Him in all areas of my life, all the time, every day, every moment! I am excited to go to the jail and see the ladies. I get blessed when I am there. They are desperate to hear God's Word. I, too, am desperate for His Word. I feel so unworthy of being used by God to bring forth His Word to them. That is because I am unworthy, except through Him. He is worthy. Yes, He IS worthy!! He is worthy to receive glory and honor and power. For He has created all things for His pleasure! He is worthy!! My heart overflows with such love and gratitude to God for all He has done for me. It amazes me that He is continually working in me, in spite of the fact that there are times when I have little faith. There are times when I rebel and sin. Yet, in my unworthiness, He is walking beside me and guiding me as I seek to know Him better. He is revealing Himself to me. I want my desire to be for Him alone. I want to be used of Him. The more I seek His face and the more I see His holiness, the more I then see my self as one who has fallen so short. Yet, He chose me! He died for me! No, I don't understand or comprehend this at all, but I believe it by faith. That is how I have to live my life, daily, by faith, trusting Him to do His good work, through this unworthy vessel. . . me!
Trusting God . . . in my unworthiness . . . One Day at a Time
This is a brand new blog as I am now on a new type of journey! I am learning more and more each day what it truly means to trust God. This journey is taking me deeper and deeper into what it means to surrender my all to Him. I would love to have you come along with me as I share my ups and downs, my joys and sorrows and as I seek a closer relationship and walk with my Saviour.
I need to add that I am beginning the blog again after almost a year and a half. I am still on a journey to learn to trust God and seek to know His will for me. I write mainly for myself, but anyone is welcome to join me on this journey.
