Where to begin? I feel good today; I feel good most every day. But I also have questions every day; it’s something I can’t help… I don’t believe I’m meant to…
Anyway, it’s raining here and I feel like journaling. The ministry God has given me has taken off in a new area… the area of “mentoring” (which is really pastoring) those seeking a deeper understanding of God pertaining to intimacy. That’s a big umbrella, but a beautiful one… an umbrella I joyfully and gratefully stand under as one of God’s most soaked and saturated “students”!
“Follow me as I follow Christ…” (1 Cor. 1:11)
The Daddy’s Girl blog has gotten a lot more serious lately (not that it hasn’t always been serious for the most part) regarding various worldly attitudes the Lord wants me to decry. Yucky speech, erroneous mindsets and the like have come front-and-center in the past few posts, and I’m glad about it. There’s a good feeling about standing up for what you know pleases God, and pointing out to others (in love, of course) what does not. It was lovingly pointed out to me and now it’s my turn to show humble, teaching qualities.
Teachers must be the most humble because they are charged with “instruction”… that whole topic is fodder for the flesh if God’s not in it. High and mighty, lofty, conceited, puffed-up, brainiac, egomaniacal idiocy is wrapped up, tied up, and tangled up in “teaching” when the flesh is in charge. YUCK! 😦
Anyway, there are more precious lives to mentor, both online and in person, and I am up for it in Jesus! Things also look different around the house, though I won’t go into it now. I am grateful for the addition of angels and the augmenting of my assignments in Christ. I am grateful for staying power and the stick-to-itiveness given to me by God.
Even the fairly new Theater of My Mind blog is changing lives. I’m an encourager – I have the “gift” of encouragement and I use it readily when I am led to by God. Only TRUTH encourages, and I adore the changed countenances of those Holy Spirit reaches and touches through me. I know what it means to be encouraged in the most critical, personal, and crucial ways… ways that make the difference between letting go and holding on. Ways that let God’s truth shine through to your soul and keep you comforted when everybody thinks that you’ve gone wrong…
Well, life’s not about what everybody thinks. Like I said, today I feel good; God has blessed, is continuing to bless, and I’m glad.
