Today’s scripture: Galatians 1:15-17
It still amazes me that God “set me apart” and “called me through His grace.”
That’s how much He loves me.
I'm so very flawed, and I so often fail, yet He continues to bless and use me—oftentimes, in spite of me.
I’m gearing up for a new semester of teaching, and I’m reminded of how He uses
me to influence the lives of students ... which I get to do from the comfort of our lovely new
Tennessee home. As I sit here in my office, I glance out the window and see an
expanse of trees. It’s beautiful, and I'm thrilled that I can teach in such a
wonderful, peaceful setting … in my jammies, if I want! I am blessed.
I start a new small group tomorrow, and I’m excited to connect with a new group
of “sisters” and to see how God might use me to encourage them. I am blessed.
I’m back on the stage, rehearsing for a fun show, and I'm working with a great
cast and crew. It’s such a gift to be able to perform, using gifts that God has
given me. I am blessed.
You, too, are “called through His grace.” If you surrender to Him and let Him
order your day, you will be blessed as well. In spite of you …
