WE GO Monday, April 22, 2019 We are each His beautiful vessel, called to pour out the light and love of Christ; therefore, WE GO... Ephesians 4:2-3 Be completely humble and gentle with one another in love. Make every effort to keep unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Over the past several years the Lord opened my eyes to true relationship. I have learned that my most important relationship I have is first with Him. Out of a real desperation and the love of a good friend, my prayer life began a new life of it's own and slowly began to blossom. Interestingly, my "word" for the year over these two particular years were "new life" and "listen". I began to spend much time alone with the Lord talking, writing, and listening. These were very much new skills for me - especially the listening. I would have to say, as it does in the above verse, I discovered what real love and peace felt like for the first time. Over time as my love and friendship for Christ grew, my earthly relationships began to improve, deepen, and flourish. At the same time I was growing closer in relationship to the Lord using my new skill set, I began walking with my friend Chris Baxter and spending a portion of that walking time praying aloud for ourselves, our friends and family, and eventually strangers . It's funny what happens when you start praying. I felt love , compassion, and grace growing inside me like never before. These are attributes of our Lord and they were actually beginning to develop in me! You would be amazed at what happens when you tell others that you walk and pray for them. Through prayer we made the decision to start visiting and loving on an elderly neighbor couple and eventually started praying with them on those visits. Through prayer the Lord was making me aware of the "deeper stuff" and I began to be more intentional with relationships both old and new. Compassion and God's grace began to open my eyes to better relationships with my kids. It was during this time that I became a part of Souls Sisters Ministry and formed deep prayerful relationships with many of you. I felt called to use my home for "relationship work" by sharing it with friends and other ministries whose purpose was to teach and encourage other through Christ. I was indeed experiencing a new life in Christ and enjoying deeper relationships with others . I've got to say I never went looking for any other this and by NO means did I do it perfectly. Circumstances in my life changed and as a very broken and desperate woman, I ran to Christ. Very slowly as I was healing, one thing after another began to present itself and all I did was say yes. I was not equipped for much but as I've said here before, He equips the called. And that's exactly what He has done and is still doing for me. I'm called to be in relationship with Christ and others He has put in my life and I pray I reflect the Love of my GOOD Teacher. Further: John 4:1-26; John 3:1-21; Luke 19:1-10 Heavenly Father, what a Good and Gracious Friend You are to us. We just celebrated new life in You yesterday and have no words to express our gratitude for what You did for us. Please show us how to live more intentionally in our relationship with You and others. Teach us that You are our portion and no one else can fill our vessel like You. Lord, let Your love and light shine through us to others and please let them be curious of the source. We desire to live and love well and want that to be reflected in all our relationships . Help us not to forget, "We love because He first loved us"(John 4:19) Amen.
