This morning there is joy from deep within attempting to surface and actually for the past few days there seemed to be a lack. This is not something I can take credit for but am delighted to experience it as it will flow over onto others. There are times when I am tempted to think joy or mistakes are personal in nature as I remind myself, everything is about God and my relationship to Him/Her. The constant struggle is removing the little ego from my thinking and know that I know it is always about God/Good. The Bible says it is all vanity if we are not looking through God’s/Love’s eyes.
John 3:8 states “The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” Today, my focus is on God!
As Christmas approaches, I was pondering something to do for our five great-nieces and the idea struck me to decorate plastic containers for penny banks and put some coins in each to start. As I was studying my Bible Lesson, a couple of ideas flooded my thoughts which were perfect for this undertaking. I then remember hearing years ago that a Spiritual idea comes with all of it’s resources and that God takes you all the way and dots all the “i’s” and crosses all the “t’s”. This had been a spiritual idea.
Romans 15:13 reads, “May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing (through the experience of your faith} that by the power of the Holy Sprit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.”
That is exactly how I feel right now. Bubbling over with this creative idea, which is from God.
