Fellowship is a daily act, in my journey I am learning that. Before I get in to scripture I want to give my testimony about today and a great lesson that I learned. This morning at work I finished serving breakfast to the children. I am a middle school Lunch Lady, it was now time to prep the sides for Lunch, while prepping I usually listen to @livpurposecoach Pastor Kimberly Jones on periscope. I had to go to the basement and get some strawberries from the high school cafeteria.( pause )
My Goal for this Blog is to spread Gods wonderful word to as many people as I can. If I’m spreading God’s word why haven’t I written a Blog in over a week. ( Un pause )
So as I’m going to speak to my boss about the amount of strawberries that I was taking and upset cause there were defiantly not enough, just before I walked in to the kitchen my phone fell face first SPLAT! I looked down and said it didn’t break. rolled it over and sure enough it was cracked, at first I was upset but then I heard, “do you idolize that phone, or God.”
When it came to the phone, my first thoughts, I can’t play my games. (I hadn’t been on my games). why hadn’t I just turned the phone off put it in my pocket and went to get my order. all week I have been writing scriptures on my vision board (refrigerator) but not studying, I realized last night that I didn’t even learn a new scripture. Why because I was on periscope, not saying there’s anything wrong but it’s ok to catch the replays and take care of my part of the job first God’s business. ok thought I would share He said this journey wouldn’t be easy.
EPHESIANS 4:21 -24
Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. 22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and true holiness.
21. We know that you know of Jesus Christ and was taught that his word is truth. 22. you were taught about your former way of life, to leave your old self behind you, which lead you to do wrong things; 23 to find a new way of thinking 24 and live a loving, compassionate way of life being good to others and living unselfishly by the word. (how I see righteous and holy.
Remember in my testimony I told you how I was upset about my strawberries not being enough. I had some real unchristian like thoughts and when I dropped the phone I was preparing for a verbal confrontation with my boss, which almost occurred had my phone not broken.
being on this Journey to be closer to God allows me to be checked by the holy spirit that dwells within me. do I believe that the phone dropping was all The Fathers doing, I sure do, my holy spirit was quick to check my reaction to the lost, the Father was quick to tell me, I was not obeying, I was idolizing a handheld computer. And the Son had given me scripture about how I was to represent God. 2 Timothy 22 -24 I am running around screaming don’t dilute your oil and I’m about to dilute my own oil. praise God for stopping me, Praise Jesus for teaching me, Praise the Holy Spirit for Correcting.
Every Morning I do the Daily Declarations with PK @livpurposecoach This particular day she was saying to pick up that project and go, doors are opening. God was saying “you have to put down the phone to pick up the project, did you not tell me this morning that you wanted to be filled up by me”
