God has been all up in my business lately.
You know when He does that? When He just keeps molding and shaping you, and sometimes it’s so personal and goes so deep that you think you might not recognize yourself pretty soon?
The past two years have been that way for me, and in a multitude of ways, I don’t recognize myself. Or rather, I don’t recognize the girl I used to be. I can’t put myself back into her mind, can’t pretend to live with the glaring blindspots she possessed.
And two years from now, hopefully I’ll say the same about who I am today.
It’s hard and it’s delightful, this up-close-and-personal work in the Potter’s hands. Dying to self is hard. But seeing change that you never could have produced on your own–that is so brilliantly and clearly the work of Jesus–that’s delightful.
Today I’m resting in the knowledge that it’s all His grace. Not a drop of it is me. It’s His work, and He will see it through.
Whatever God is working in your heart and in your life, know that it is HIS work. Don’t let the enemy hold you back with fear, anxiety, impatience, or insecurity. God is faithful to complete His good work in us (Philippians 1:6).
I’m so happy to be on this journey with you, SheReadsTruth sisters.
