There Is Beauty In The Unveiling

What comes to mind when you think of being unveiled? Unveiled means to remove a veil or covering from or to make public.  Well, as I was removing the make up from my face yesterday after work, God said to me, "There is beauty in the unveiling." I took that to mean that there is beauty in my vulnerability, my imperfections, and those areas in my life that I don't view as so beautiful. The beauty is not necessarily found in the imperfection but in the fact that we need God to continuously perfect and heal us from those not so beautiful areas in our lives. 

So often we as people, especially us ladies, try to present ourselves to the world as well put together, without blemish or imperfection, so much so that we go before God the same way. We even go as far as trying to pray the most eloquent prayer and speak to him as if we are already perfect and have it all together.  I don't know why we think that the Lord wants His people to be perfect. If we were perfect we wouldn't need His grace and mercy. If we were perfect, we wouldn't see the beauty in the unveiling.  Ladies and gentlemen, our goal should never be perfection, but to be intimate and intentional about our imperfections with the Lord daily.

God says in 2 Corinthians 12:9 (Life Application Study Bible, NLT), Each time He said, "My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness." So be thankful for your imperfections because it allows God to be glorified once we decide to go before Him unveiled. 

Be enncouraged today because there is beauty in the unveiling.

I love you guys but God loves you more!

Staying Committed with No Strings Attached

It has been almost four years since my last post.  I know, shame on me.  However, this year I am making a commitment to be consistent with blogging, as I believe the Lord wants me to use this as an avenue to encourage people through my life experiences. So, I vow to stay and trust the process through this blog, as God leads me.  You guys can also hold me accountable, especially if it has been over a month since you have read a post. So, with that being said, I felt lead to blog on this topic because it's one that I often struggle with (as if you couldn't tell...lol) 
There have been moments in my life where I wasn't fully committed to a task, spiritually or physically. It's been times where I have felt the Lord leading me to do certain things, and because of how I felt at the moment, I would either start the task and not fully commit to seeing it through or I wouldn't start the task at all.  Most times I allowed fear and pride to interfere with what I knew I needed …

What kind of heart is your seed falling on?

So during my devotion time I studied out of the book of Luke chapter 8 verses 9-15.   This  passage gave insight on the seed of God and described the different soil your seed has potential to fall upon.  It defined seed as being the word of God and it broke down and spoke on the four types of hearts (soil) the seed would fall upon.

The first described is the seed that falls on the road, which is when one hears the word, but no sooner then they hear the enemy comes and snatches it from them so they don't believe.  The next one is the seed that falls in the gravel, which happens when one is super enthusiastic about what they heard but the enthusiasm doesn't run very deep. It's only another fad and the moment there is trouble, it's gone.  Then there is the seed that falls on weeds which happens when one hears the word but then the seed is crowded out and nothing comes of it, so people go about their lives worrying about tomorrow, making money, and having fun.  Lastly,  th…
