My cup overflows!
I need this weekend way more than I thought I did. In addition to having the blessing in the blessing of food. Lately I've really been feeling like I didn't know where I belong or who I am because I don't look like anyone I know. And by look I mean my life doesn't emulate anyone else's life. I feel sometimes like a mis-matched puzzle piece.
I spent the weekend with 9 other women learning that we are stitched together by God's grace and mercy, and His True Love. That each one of us is different and as we grow in Him, we love and support (and laugh with) others.
I learned this weekend, from so many women, that God made me the way I am to fulfill His purpose. That I am not 'look' like others but as He created each one of us, it is by His perfect plan. I felt so loved this weekend! I learned so much this weekend, about myself, and about others. About sisters from other mothers but the same Father. I'm forever thankful!
My cup overflows!
Eph 2:10 (NLT) For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Eph 2:7-10(MSG) Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.
