Iron Sharpens Iron!

This week has been one of encouragement!  I have been discouraged from past experiences while raising my support and one of my sister’s in Christ told me to be bold, be brave! Listen to His whispers and step out into the unfamiliar!  The sea will part as you step out and follow His leads!

I have been stopping traffic to allow buses out of the school parking lot.  I have almost gotten hit a few times.  I tried to think about how I could get people’s attention.  Then, I remembered I have a whistle and I might need to use it!  What a confirmation of my need to use the tools I have been given; or His weapons so I can perform my duties or His calling on my life!

When I was praying for someone else, I saw a lantern in the midst of darkness…this image reminded me of Psalms 119:105.  His Word gives us direction so we can go down the path He wants us to….He only gives us enough light for the next step and not the entire path.  This way, we have to keep our faith and trust in Him and not in ourselves!

While I was meeting with a pastor he quoted Galatians 6:9 to me.  He had no idea about what I have been feeling and experiencing!  I love how the Lord uses others to encourage us!

Lastly, while I was leaving my post at the school, I looked up and saw a plane’s exhaust…then I saw the clouds.  I heard the Holy Spirit whisper…see that little line…that is what you can do in your strength…even at it’s greatest width, it doesn’t compare to what I can do!  You see those clouds…that’s what I can do!  No matter how hard you try, it can’t compare to what you can do through My might!   Lord, keep me out of Your way!  Let me die to self so You can have Your way in me!

I am a daughter of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! I am humbled that He calls me His own! I am learning to walk more boldly and confidently in who He has created me to be. My prayer is others will come to know Jesus as their Savior, identify with who they are in Him so they too can walk out the calling He’s places on their lives!
