Happy Sunday Everybody! God is Amazing!
So after I made that shop, I asked God how to promote it and He told me to make a Facebook page. Okie Dokie Lord- done.
Then as I was getting dressed to leave to run errands for the day He told me to wear the Proverbs 3:5 pendant I have for sale in my shop. Okie Dokie Lord- done.
About an hour or so later I get this notification from my ETSY store and the subject line is : Proverbs 3:5 Pendant. Out of all the stuff I am selling in my shop, THAT one pendant is the subject line (You can't make this God stuff up!). That lady asked if it was possible to order more than one pendant at a time.
She ordered 16 pendants.
Is God amazing or what??
I know God has big plans for this- I just need to follow His lead. :) Oh and if you don't mind too much, please look on the left side column of this blog and LIKE my Facebook page. I need 50 people and then I can get a custom link for it. Thanks and have a great week!
Ok, back to our regularly scheduled blogging- Here are some words from my Pastor.
Fill the Earth
Read: John 2:1-12
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!"- II Corinthians 5:17
You have heard the saying, if life gives you lemons make lemonade. This concept makes sense so what about changing lemons to wine. Still a possibility but what about changing water into wine. This idea is altering nothing into something. This is God's invention of changing empty to full. We can wish for impossibilities and pray for an eternal answer.
We are to trust with patience and strength and know that God knows all of our needs. His answer is not contingent on you. The direction your life will turn will be at the Lord's discretion and good judgment. Either your choice in the matter will fulfill God's intent or delay God's will.
One particular day Mary asked Jesus for a basic need of wine for the wedding feast. She did not give explanation or a long justification of her necessity. She simply stated the conflict and difficulty and then just waited. She knew she was starting with nothing but depended on Jesus and believed her God would fill all the empty spaces and satisfy the needs of the people more than she imagined.
The more you follow after God's Love with praying and trusting and anticipation of God's will in your life the sooner you can be like Mary and live a life filled and centered on completeness through the Lord. Like Mary, you can become a vessel ready for what seems beyond your reach.
