    You Are God’s Girl

    Monday, April 27, 2015

    As we are ending another month, reflect on the past four months and see what all God has done for you personally and in your ministry.  Many times when we journal and go back to read, it is amazing to see what all God has done that maybe we have forgotten.

    Let me encourage you to stay close to Him so when the storms come and we don’t know where to turn, we realize He has it all under control. We know that deep down, but sometimes as humans, we tend to forget and allow ourselves to worry or wring our hands and wonder how it  is going to work out.

    Allow this devotional to speak to your heart:

    You are my beloved child. I chose you before the foundation of the world, to walk  with Me along paths designed uniquely for you. Concentrate on keeping in step with Me,  instead of trying to anticipate My plans for you. If you trust that My plans are to prosper  you and not to harm you, you can relax and enjoy the present moment.

    Your hope and your future are rooted in heaven, where eternal ecstasy awaits you. Nothing can rob you of your inheritance of unimaginable riches and well-being. Sometimes I grant you glimpses of your glorious future, to encourage you and spur you on. But your main focus should be staying close to Me. I set the pace in keeping with   your needs and My purposes.

    Stay so close to Him that no matter what comes your way, you will allow Him to work it out and know He knows what is best for you.

    Help us continue providing resources of care for pastors and their families.
