A year ago, I was counting down days to holding my little girl in my arms. I honestly looked and felt like a different person. Anxiety and unease flooded my heart regarding delivery. I was all done nesting, save for a few items that I was waiting on to come from another town.
Fast forward to a year later, from the moment you enter our house, you know without a shadow of doubt that Miss K is a resident of our home. Over the last couple of weeks, she has managed a toy distribution service. Which she is excelling at by the way; her toys are all over the house. Her curiosity is at its best, she wants to know what everything is; if she can remove it she will, if she can pass under or over it, she will.
Yesterday evening as I looked at her toys lying on the floor, the Holy Spirit convicted me that His presence in my life,in our lives, should be very evident. He should leave a trail of tangible fruit. If He doesn’t, then His tenancy is in question.
The thing about God is that you can’t encounter Him and leave the same. He comes and overturns ‘monuments’ in your heart and reveals the rusty, dusty and nasty things that have been hiding under them.
Can the fruit of the Spirit be seen in your life?
Have you given the Spirit free reign in your life?
Can the people around you see God in your life?
The prayer of the day:
I thank you for your power and love. I am humbled that You love me yet You see the contents of my heart. You see what I think and feel behind closed doors, but You love me all the same. Thank you that Your invitation for me to experience You deeper is still open. Indeed You desire to transform me and grow me.
I want to be a better ambassador for Christ for the glory of Your name. Please forgive me for the times that I have brought shame to Your name. I desire to be Your hands and Your feet. For people to see You in me. Work in and through me Lord.
I declare that I am not going back to the way things used to be. Continue to lead me in your everlasting ways.
I love you and I worship you.
In Jesus name I pray and believe,
The song of the day is:
