Bloom {Into Beautiful}: The Journal Series: Week 1


The Journal Series: Week 1

The Lord has laid it on my heart to do a series of my prayer journal entries. I'm not sure how long this will go on & what will come out in this but I do not want to ignore what the Lord wants me to do. Please be in prayer with me through this series & let's enjoy this journey together. Please comment with anything you may have to say or add throughout this. I will be posting every Tuesday with this. :)
Here it goes.

Reading: Exodus Ch. 1-5
Today what spoke to me was in 4:10-12. God has asked Moses to go to the Israelites in Egypt and tell them God is going to rescue them. But Moses says he's not "good with words." God says "Who makes a person's mouth? Who decides whether people speak or do not speak, hear or do not hear, see or do not see? Is it not, I, the Lord? Now go! I will be with you as you speak, and I will instruct you in what to say."
Many times God will call us to do something and we will come back and say, "Oh, Lord I can't! I'm incapable!" But if God calls us to do something and we obey, He will give us the tools, the words, the time, the strength...whatever we need to do it! How awesome this is! We need to learn to not reject God's calls and requests to us, but to accept and accomplish them! He will help us!

My take on this today...
Wow. I am speechless. Here it is 8 months later and this has spoken to me and comforted me in ways I could never imagine. I am so overwhelmed right now. As ya'll know, I am in Kansas now and my husband has just deployed to Kuwait for 9 months. I have been having a hard time not just throwing my hands up in the air and moving to KY while he's gone. I know that this is not what God wants though. He has called me to be a part of the Bible study here at our church in KS this fall. I know without a doubt that I would be making a huge mistake and missing out on what God has in store for me this fall, winter and spring with these sweet ladies. I am just so comforted and so much more secure in this after reading this little journal entry I wrote so long ago. Praise the Lord!

Thanks for reading!
