I realize its been over a week since I’ve posted. I’ve been writing and procrastinating about working on my teaching for the upcoming Women’s Encounter with God weekend. I’m teaching Prodigal Son again and have had on my heart for months that we are women, not men. I know that the gender terms are of no consequence, that God simply see us as His children.
However I am certain when it comes to the prodigal in us, the women go into the world seeking an entirely different experience. We do not prodigal for wealth and power. We do not prodigal to be independent of our families and the rules of our “father’s” home. Women seek a “father’s rule and protection”, rather than losing our inheritance financially, we lose our inheritance of innocence and self worth! So I procrastinate on because, I’m having issue finding appropriate information on the Prodigal daughter.
As, I sit reading emails and devotionals therein, God speaks, AMEN!
The LORD will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
The Lord brings me along day by day,according to His timing and plan. Regardless, of what I am experiencing or feeling, I am on the correct path. I am blessed with the knowledge that whatever is going on in my life, God is working on perfecting the things that concern Me! He is causing it to good manifest, or He is removing the contrary from my life. He is finishing Me.
This scripture is a Promise to us all, awesome and liberating. He is handling everything, freeing me from worry and concern.
You see…in Psalm 27:13 it says,
I would have dispaired unless I believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
I know that I will see and receive the goodness of God in my life. And so will you.
So I’m off to writing again, God will deliver the message He plans for me to teach for Him, in His timing. Of this I am certain.
That is a positive thought for me. Hope it blesses you.
