Treadmill Treats Monday Message
Just what I needed to hear..
It is still amazing to me even though I preach about my faith, even though I write an inspirational blog, that I am surprised that I am human and sometimes I need a word, I stumble, I wonder when it is coming.
Don’t get me wrong, I am truly blessed for everything in my life and have never been happier but I know that there is more for me, that he gave me this gift of writing, this testimony I need to tell the world and sometimes I ask when is it coming? Why isn’t it here faster?
Faith is a process..but we want it now, fast, we have no patience but to have deep faith, it takes work, it is a process, and I need to remember that.
So when I came to church yesterday the message was just what I needed to hear. See since I started at this church, this verse has touched me like no other, it has come up time after time when I needed it and it has given me strength to go on.
The verse is Romans 8.28 “and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him and who have been called according to his purpose.
If God is for us, who can be against us”
I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this writing is his gift, it’s my purpose, I have to finish this book and put it out there so that God can work his miracles.
The message went on to say
“What are you doing with your gifts? did you buried your talents ? Why are you waiting? God has your blessings, he is waiting on you”
Did I tell you that God speaks through my Bishop straight to me? Yes, he does time after time, just like now…. I have had so much going on I have been procrastinating about finishing the book, but this was just the message I needed to hear to set a fire under my butt!
So I went home, I wrote the back cover, I wrote the about the author blurb, I picked the cover, did research and sent it all off to my editor.
So today my friends, remember we all get down,we want it all, we all need to hear an encouraging word to keep going, your not alone. Just listen, the message will come,it might be from a sermon, it might be a song, a article you read, a message from a friend but your message is coming and you have to be open to receive it, it will be just what you needed to hear ….
