The Lord’s still working on me...

The Lord woke me up at 3am to meet with him this morning, so this blog is going to be brief. I’m super sleepy 😴, but it was so worth it. I love me some sweet time with the Lord!!!

Tonight I just want to say that what the song says it’s true....

🎶 He's still working on me To make me what I need to be It took him just a week to make the moon and stars The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars How loving and patient He must be 'Cause He's still workin' on me

I am so thankful that the Lord is still working in me, in the big things and the small things. The Lord has placed it on my heart to share with you tonight that sometimes I can be stingy 😢. There is no excuse, it’s just a problem he’s working out in me. As most of you know we sold everything we own except our clothes and a few odds and ends to serve the Lord internationally. That means we don’t have much and sometimes I catch myself holding onto what little we have. It’s sad but true.

An example I want to share with you is something small I was being stingy with, but even the small matters to God. I am leading a Celebrate Recovery step study small group with the women at the Rehab. The ladies didn’t have a journal to write their personal answers in, so I picked up a couple of journals. The Lord placed it on my heart to write them a little note in there using some cool pens that I got for Mother’s Day. After writing a nice letter to the first lady God spoke to my heart and said attach the cool purple pen to the journal and give her the pen too. Now it seems like an easy task to say yes to, but for some reason my flesh wanted to just keep the pen. Inside my head, the battle began. I heard the sweet voice of the Holy Spirit gently saying, "give her the pen." Then came my first excuse, "but it was a mother's day present for me." Then came the sweet gentle guiding voice of the Holy Spirit again saying, "give her the pen." But my heart gave yet another excuse, "then I won't have a pen in this pretty purple color anymore." Thank God he never gives up on me and guided me once again, "give her the pen." I was mad at myself for being so stingy and selfish with a pen and willingly attached it to the journal. I attached the pen for the other lady on her journal as well. Obedience to God is the best choice! Then God began to soften my heart for the other 8 pens I had left that I received for Mother's day saying, "those are for other ladies too that will come through the rehab." So I am praying and eagerly awaiting for God to place the other 8 ladies in my life to disciple. I am ready to be obedient immediately and am so thankful to God for never giving up on me.

The 2 pens given away so far....

8 more to go....

Please pray that I will be a better giver and obey quickly. God gave me His very best (Jesus Christ), may I give my very best with all.

Thank y'all for reading my blog. I'll leave you with a question, what is he working on in your heart and desiring to change? Mention it in the comments so I can come alongside you in prayer and we can all start to be more like Jesus Christ. Blessings!
