Sweet friend, are you relying on your own efforts or the approval of others to affirm your value? Has your heart run dry from trying to meet your needs with everything and anything but Christ, our true source of life? Join me today as I share a story of how God reminded me I was relying on my own efforts.
Life is a lot like a puzzle. Pieces of a life snuggle up tight. Some of the pieces fit together properly and create something beautiful. Some pieces have gotten mixed up with a cramp of confusion, and I realize they were never intended to fit the picture God has for my life.
Have you ever tried to make yourself shine? Feeling like you’ve lost your glow, have you ever worked harder, trying to scrub up a good shine? The work of God deep in a life–shining is the overflow of God at work. It is the mark of his presence that brings forth glory.
