Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Doodle 101 / Grace is ENOUGH

Doodle101:Graceisenough:SueCarroll

“But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” -2 Cor 12:9

As I continue to study and pray through The Virtue of Contentment : A Bible Journaling Study, I hear my helper (the Holy Spirit) whisper over and over…

Do you live like you believe His Power and His GRACE are enough?  Most days, no…

I live like my power is enough:(

How do I move from this place of knowledge (that He is enough) to a place of  OBEDIENCE?

LIVING LIKE I BELIEVE.

THIS IS THE “SECRET” of CONTENTMENT THAT PAUL SPEAKS OF IN PHIL 4…

TO LIVE IN OBEDIENCE IS TO LIVE SURRENDERED.

TO GIVE THE LORD ACCESS TO EVERY MOMENT OF MY DAY…EVERY DECISION, EVERY THOUGHT, EVERY MOTIVATION.

When God’s will becomes my will…He will ALWAYS be enough.

I must practice obedience in the rituals of my day…like brushing my teeth, or drinking my coffee.

God’s will, is better than coffee…the results are more than something that “gets me through the morning.”  The Lord MEETS us in our obedience, and we are satisfied.

If we are operating in His will, with His power, according to His Grace…we WILL have every need met, and then some:)

Take the challenge with me…

PRACTICE OBEDIENCE…

Before you put your feet on the floor, acknowledge that God (IN LOVE) bought you with a price…Give Him what you owe Him…your life…invite Him to join you in the day.

practice makes perfect:)
