Strength in a word

So… This weekend has been interesting. In my opinion, I didn’t perform to the standard of excellence that I am capable of.

Flashback, the days were covered in prayer. I had the most amazing time with God in route to Saturday morning’s interview. The nerves started where the prayer stopped. I am not sure how you handle “expectation”, but when I am nervous it can feel heavy. When I opened my mouth to respond, I went blank. I got something out, but the comfort of all of the parables and verses that have taken residence in my heart drained right out. I came down really hard on myself, because I didn’t feel like it was a God smile moment.

I got to church today for me the strongest point was: OUR CHAINS MAY INFLUENCE SOMEONE ELSE’S CHANGE.

w o w…. The Apostle Paul endured so much, yet concentrated on joy in his epistle (letter) to the church at Philippi.

My entire weekend was almost spoiled because I focused on my shortcomings. I am choosing to turn my eyes to my Father. CHOICE! As long as I remember that “the joy of the LORD is my strength”, I have a focus. I can recall many times, old and new, of sheer divine deliverance. Today, I not only focus on those recollections, I am depending on the Father- Abba- Eloheim- Jehovah Jireh- to do it again!

Be blessed,

Ivy Out

I was just talking about your blogs and ran across this.. Don’t be so hard on yourself.. Everything is all good. Just sit back, kick your feet up and wait on that call. It’s already done.. It’s all good..
