Complacency

I’ve been feeling like a blob of clay lately, rearranged and pushed in ways that are not comfortable. Being comfortable, peace at all times tends to be my motto! This challenge to leave my complacency has happened most of my life and I should be used to it. Yet as I look back I can see that when I resist the potter’s hands life becomes more difficult, painful and unfruitful. The times I have embraced The Potter’s gentle, loving spinning and molding, the baking and glazing I see in myself something wonderful that amazes me! I can see that I have been, am being molded into a vessel that my Father God can use for His glory!

HOPE

Hope;The first candle in the advent wreathHope.  What is hope? Rom_8:24 & 25  Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees?  But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. Many times in my life when a change in my life is coming about I have held onto Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for blessing and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”    In the past year, again, I have seen the fulfillment of this promise over and over. I am learning to keep my eyes on Yeshua, He is our hope…And: 2Co 4:18  “Things that are seen don’t last forever, but things that are not seen areHoly Spirit Dove eternal. That’s why we keep our minds on the things that cannot be seen.” So I conclude with:  Rom_15:13  “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
