When God Shows Off; Be Ready To Be Knocked Off Your Feet

{Today’s blog is dedicated to a kindred soul, a friend who loves God and His people whole-heartedly!!!}

This morning, my entire being is feeling God’s love so deeply, I feel I could scream it from the roof top… “God is good!  He truly answers prayers, the deepest yearnings of the heart! If you don’t know Him;  STOP what you’re doing… And RUN… RUN… RUN to Him! Life without Him… is miserable and no life at all!”  As I sit at my dining room table, having quiet time reading, praying, and listening for God’s voice, I feel God’s love so powerfully, that it {literally} hurts!  There have been only a few times in my walk of faith, where I have felt God’s love so deeply, that it has literally hurt… it’s pounding wildly inside my heart!

Today, for the first time in a long time, God is revealing his amazing plans!  He’s answering the deepest yearnings of my heart, the fervent prayers lifted over the past several years and months!  The excitement of seeing Him pave the way in my career as a Christian counselor and realizing His desire to use me as a vessel to reach God’s people!

The hope of my son’s new school, as an answer to the yearnings and deepest concerns of my heart!  The tears I’ve cried on this child’s behalf are innumerous and the fears run deep!  God is showing his unconditional love to me and my little boy!  He’s working to meet my little guy’s needs and calming this momma’s heart in the process!

He’s showing up… In countless ways!  In powerful ways!  In obvious ways!  In “HIS PERFECT WAY!

He’s ever-present in my life!

Let me tell you…. He’s {SHOWING OFF} big time!

I can envision him in Heaven, sitting with His son and the angels… Smiling and filled with pride and excitement;  As he looks down and beholds the joy, excitement, and awe washing over his child;  As he {finally} and in His perfect time… begins the process of laying out His plan!

Honestly, there is a part of me doubting His plan!  Actually, it’s more a feeling of fear; fearful of allowing myself to fall prey to such in depth eagerness, excitement, and joy.  At the risk of being let down {again}… The risk of getting hurt!

Maybe your feeling much of the same… Hope for the possibility of your dreams coming to fruition and hope that {things} will be different, even enriching.  Yet, this deep ridden doubt and fear that it’ll continue to be much of the same!

Friends, I am experiencing these feelings, fears, and doubt…  I wonder if you might be as well?

In prayer, the Holy Spirit revealed to my heart that Satan is working overtime to steal away my joy, excitement, and hope of future possibilities!  I refuse to allow Satan to have this effect on me!  I refuse to allow him to use his sly and manipulative tactics to render me ineffective for the Kingdom of God!

{Let’s make a deal!  Shall we?}

Let’s choose the path of hope!  Let’s cherish the joy and excitement; And believe in advance that He is the Almighty Healer, Miracle Worker, Comforter, Relationship Mender and Giver of all good things!  Let’s allow this joy to permeate through our entire being. After all, God promises to give us the desires of our hearts; as long as they align with his word and his calling over our life!

Let’s watch God show off!!!  Praise Him!  Applaud Him!  Thank Him!
Proverbs 16:9 – A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.

Psalms 138:8 – The LORD will perfect [that which] concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, [endureth] for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

Epesians 2: 8 – For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: {it is} the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Blessings, Crystal

Dear Lord, I trust in you!  I love you!  I believe you, everything about who and what you are!  I applaud you!  I praise you!  I thank you!  Lord, show off!  I super excited and I refuse to allow Satan to cause me to doubt you.  You have ALWAYS shown up, ALWAYS comforted, ALWAYS loved, ALWAYS guided, ALWAYS planned my life in the most wonderful ways!  I could never doubt your amazing ways!  Lord, do your thing!  I will continue to trust!  I will shout your love from the rooftops for all to hear of your amazing love and power!  In Your Holy and Almighty name, Crystal”
