In the Valley of Sheep

I’m delighted to have Jeanie Kelley back with us on Friend Friday. I know that you will love what she has to share with you.

In the first chapter of Limitless Life it discussed David and how humble he was. He depended on God. He leaned on him even in the midst of his running from Saul. I love how he had conquered his fear. He was not defined by his label.

Have I depended on God? You betcha’. Since all has transpired with Warren and this job situation I had put a label on me. Not capable. But after reading this chapter, I have discovered that I am more than capable. I am worthy, I am loved. God has never turned his back on me. I have washed the “not” away and say “I am capable.” Capable of the little things that I am doing. Those things are standing beside my husband and praying for him. Strengthening him to help him look for a job. We have not arrived yet, but I have not given up on God. God has not given up on me.

Have I arrived yet? No, I have not arrived as of yet, but I know it is coming. I am resting in Jesus’ arms and truly inspired by the little blessings that Jesus has provided. God knows what we need even when we do not ask for it.

Do I feel unnoticed and what I am doing is not important? There are times, I do feel unnoticed. Unnoticed by God and people around me. But I think that is where God needs to have me. He needs to work on me and my life. Am I doing stuff that is important? Yes I am doing a lot of important things. I am a wife and mom strengthened by God. I have learned that God is the only one who will take care of me.

How about you? Are you depending on God today and have taken the labels and thrown them away?

Keep Smiling! For an audience of One.
