A little Monday Encouragement

I had other plans today for a post, but God just took it in a different direction-and this blog is all His anyways.  I'm wrapping up a Bible study this week called "Faithful, Abundant, and True" by Kay Arthur, Priscilla Shirer, and Beth Moore.  It's been an incredible journey and I've been so blessed by the sweet group of ladies that have gone on it as well.  Today Beth Moore wrapped up the book like this and God blew me away with it in such a way I knew I had to put my planned post on hold and share this instead...

"Keep in mind as you go on from here that walking closely with Him is a a goal we will have to pursue all our earthly lives.  We won't always make the right decision even when we have the right motivation.  We'll often feel awkward, unsure, and wobbly on our spiritual feet.  Remember God looks on our hearts.  Not on our performanes.  Just keep it real, Sister.  Obedience is never harder than in situations that are neither black nor white.  Never forget that He is also God of the gray zone.  He knows what He wants you to do.  Keep seeking Him.  Choose to die to your own ambitions and share His aims.  James 1:5 says, "If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him."  Hear this at volume 10:  Your God loves you so much.  His heart alone is so pure and holy that His emotions never cloud His judgment.  His hand is upon you.  As you seek to know Him on the pages of Scripture, He's writing His words on your very heart.  Go with Him, girlfriend.  He's a God you can trust."  (Beth Moore)
