Faithful Fridays ~ From Heaven, Through Me, Out to Others.

Hi, everyone!  It's time for Faithful Friday!  :)


Faithful Fridays is a weekly linky party hosted on my blog.  I made it so that Christians could have one special day out of the week (Friday) to share something from their Christian walk on their blog.  If you'd like to participate, write your post, grab the button from the Faithful Fridays page on my blog (so that it will link back here), and come link up at the bottom of this post!  :)

Most of us make plans, right?

We make plans and we say, "I'm going to do this and I'm going to go here" and all that.  We might even say, "I'm going to do this great thing for God" and then gallop off to go accomplish whatever it is!

And all of that is nice, but....we're kind of missing the point when we live life out in our own little circle of a world.

I mean, I guess humans can accomplish some pretty cool things when they put their mind to it, but the majority of times when something big needs to happen, you know who does it?  All of it?

God does it.  He does it through some willing servants of His.

The inspiration and the calling comes down to the servant, and then, if the servant says yes and is a willing vessel, the praises go back up to God as He accomplishes His will through this person.  They shine like a lantern out to the world because God is putting His light in them.

God is looking for people through whom He can do the impossible.  What a pity we plan to do only the things that we can do by ourselves.

-A.W. Tozer

Guys, we can do so much more when we simply open ourselves up to God and say, "Lord, I'm here.  I'm ready to do what you ask," and then when the calling comes, obey it!  

I mean, doesn't it just make sense that God can accomplish more through us than we can in our own power?

God bless you guys and have a great day!  :)

Joy,

Yes, life is so much easier and so much smoother when we let God take hold of the reins and lead us through His Plan for our lives! I don't know why that's such a hard lesson to learn, but it is. Guess it's because we live in such a self-centered-I-must-control-everything type of world! :)

Thanks for the reminder!

I love you! 10!
