So, yesterday, when HE knew my time would be limited -- HE has Lisa Bevere post this on Instagram which I did a snapshot of.
Volleyball game, first day after a 3 day holiday, and the 'second' academic week of school had my mind in a flurry. Last night as I ate some dinner, I marveled and thanked God on how creative and faithful HE was. However....I was unable to get this posted last night ( Tuesday ) because of my own 'idol'.
"PROCRASTINATION"....sometimes this is still like a thorn in my side. I won't share what I HAD to get done first and 'then' I could blog....but, I knew that when my husband headed to bed - the computer time was DONE.
Again, God is faithful and the Holy Spirit has such a gentle way to correct me when I need it.
I know for FAR TOO LONG....many things were my idol. When Lisa mentioned affirmation as an idol....check.
When Lisa mentioned strength....check.
When Lisa mentioned popular opinion....check.
When Lisa mentioned our husbands ....double check.
No need to get all into it - as if you know me, I have written about this before. Heck, this 'blog' can even become an idol if I am not careful....
Where do I get my strength from? ....now.... God.
Where do I draw my attention to? .....now...God.
Where do I GIVE my strength to?....now ....God.
But I am thankful that when and if... ( as I know I am not perfect ) I get out of balance again -- I can go right back to my Savior and seek HIM for the proper balance.
Many of the women that went to the Encounter -- need to get rid of idols within their hearts. Many of them ( like me ) have placed a human...a man, a husband, or a boyfriend where Jesus needs to be.
As I pray today, I pray that each of those women, and anyone reading this, will SEEK God and ask - WHAT do I draw my strength from?
WHAT do I give my strength to?
Lord, I pray for this blog, that it will be received with its intended heart....to help another SEE what is an idol within her heart....and God I pray that she or he -- makes it right with you and from this point on, YOU will be their IDOL. In Jesus name, AMen.
