April Kettle Club



For some strange reason I thought the month of April would be less hectic than March was—boy was I wrong! My Bible reading this last month has been exactly what I needed and so much more. Only God could do that!

Do you think that God sends you the answers before you even know the question? I'm beginning to think that there are times when He does.

This month I read about Saul being anointed by Samuel and how God equipped him for the job he had been called to do. Of course, shortly after that I ran into something that I didn't see any way I could do--something I thought God might be calling me to do. It was really bothering me. REALLY bothering me because I was convinced what He was asking of me was waaaaay beyond me. After several days, I finally laid it all at God's feet and left it there...and finally was able to sleep. As I drifted off to sleep, I remembered Saul and how God equipped him and changed him into the person he needed to be. Then I thought of several other things—things that God equipped me to do even when I was praying for someone to come along and relieve me of the duties. Things that He gave me a love for doing—even as I prayed for a way out. When I woke up I reread Chosen, and I felt like it had been written just to me, but when I wrote it I had simply been reassuring myself and others. I never dreamed God would use it to speak so directly to me.

I still don't know for sure what I'm supposed to do—but that's not a problem. I know for certain that if God is truly calling me to do it, then He will most assuredly enable and equip me to do it. THAT's what was driven home to me this month in my Bible reading. God is so tremendously good!

I hope this made sense--I'm exhausted and not thinking clearly...If it doesn't, it's covered in the two posts I wrote earlier this month: Chosen and Running in Circles

    I LOVE when I'm reading just what I need in His Word - and it happens a LOT. Thanks for sharing, sweetiepie!

  2. I totally understand that. I know what God has called me to do, I just don't know what it looks like yet! Kay Warren describes it as a polaroid - you know something is there, it just takes time and patience for it to come completely into focus.
