Often times I try to "fix things" instead of immediately turning them over to God. I mean, I suppose when it's something so big that it seems impossible for me, it is probably easier for me to turn it over to God because I know there's NO WAY I can handle it. But when it's the smaller things, I tend to try to handle it first, before handing it over to God. He really does want me to just give it to Him from the start, big or small. That takes so much pressure off me. I tend to be somewhat hard on myself, so this one hit me right where I needed. I hope it blesses you as well!
My Princess.....I Have Set You Apart
I have called you to be set apart, just as I called those who came before you. I know this calling will sometimes come with great cost, but the eternal rewards are priceless and beyond comparison. Just as I did with Queen Esther, I have given you the ability to walk in such a way so all will see that you are divinely Mine. Some will admire you for your dedication to Me, and some will want you to fail rather than follow your lead. You may fall because you are not perfect, but your mistakes can be the tutors that make you wiser. Don't put pressure on yourself to be perfect. I'm the only one who can perfect you, My princess. All I ask is that you let Me set you apart so that I use you as a witness for the world to see.
Your King who sets you apart
"I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my spokesman to the world."
And on another note, I wanted to pass along some information to my blogging friends. Many of you may remember Christina of Pendleton Primitives! She and her husband retired from the military and purchased a farmhouse in Michigan, moved in and began renovating, only to discover later that the health issues her family was having resulted from previous conditions (toxins) in the house (it had been used as a meth lab). Of course, they had to move out, and are having to begin again. There is a fundraising site set up for anyone that would like to help them along. Every little bit helps I'm sure! And please feel free to pass this along! You can click here to get to the fundraising site.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend! :)
