Iron Girl!

Just a reminder about THIS and wanted to share a bit of my teaching…

 

AS IRON SHARPENS IRON,

SO A {WO}MAN SHARPENS THE COUNTENANCE OF HIS/HER FRIEND.  

Proverbs 27:17

God wants to accomplish His purposes through your life. He delights in doing the impossible! We look over our lives and the lives of others and see the vastness, the vastness of need. But Jesus encourages us to consider trading the vastness for the daily. When we do, we tend to relax in God’s sovereignty.

Just for today Jesus, just for today.

During this season of life I offer the Lord a blank page in the morning and ask Him to write His will, His ways. Show me “the next right step”.

Jesus entered a village one day and was met by 10 lepers who stood far off crying out for Jesus to have mercy on them and heal them. Jesus told them to go show themselves to the priests and

AS THEY WENT THEY WERE CLEANSED OF THEIR LEPROSY…THEY WERE HEALED. Luke 17:14

Jesus told them to “go show” and the Priest would have said “go wash”.  The point being, go do something! And as they were going…as they stepped out in faith and walked that path Jesus required, they were healed.

Sometimes the “do something” is MOVE ON and sometimes it is BE STILL.  But whatever Jesus is asking you to do so He can use you to make a difference in this generation of vast need, take that step of obedience.

Life is a journey of taking one “right step” after the next in obedience. And so often, it is in the AS THEY WERE GOING that our deliverance, our healing takes place.

What obstacles are in your path? What are you holding on to that encumbers your freedom to MOVE or BE STILL? There is a beautiful word in the Bible that can help us, and that word is SIMPLICITY!

The base of the word SIMPLICITY, it’s core, means properly folded together, to twine, braid…it’s about our life in Jesus.

Paul said…Christ, who is my life…  It’s that simple.  Does SIMPLICITY define your home, your heart, your life? 

Come join me Saturday morning for an inspiring, encouraging teaching on living a Beautiful

Life of Simplicity.

Iron sharpening iron…
