Gifts

God has been teaching me that if we use our gifts he will provide for us.  We have to lean into our gifts in building up his kingdom.  When we trust him in him using us through his power then he will use us for his glory in his timing.  God has a way of working things out when we trust him in his provisions in our life.  God knows what we need if we just use these gifts and passion then he will lead us where he wants us to go.

Ephesians 3:20

Lately, God has bee n teaching me Ephesians 3:20.  He has been reminding me that he is going to do great things through me even more abundantly than ask or imagine.  Also, God has been revealing to me if I ask his Holy Spirit for guidance he will lead me in teaching his Word and various ministry endeavors.
The first I have taken with me as I grew as a teacher of God's Word.  I developed as a teacher of his Word at Christ Chapel Bible church in small groups.  Also at Travis Avenue Baptist church, Matt Geddie has helped me become a better teacher of his Word.  Through this God has been reminding me of what my gifts are.  He has been saying to trust him that he will use them for his glory.  Paul talked about in 1 Corinthians 12 my grace is sufficient in your weakness
Lastly, the main point God has been making us that I will use you in my timing not yours.  God has a bigger plan for my life and he wants me to trust him.  God knows my gifts and abilities.  He will use them when he deems so.  Jeremiah 31:11 is a great reminder of this as well.
So, if you read this remember God can and will use you today in mighty ways; Ephesians 3:20.  God has a will and purpose for your life.  We just have to trust him in his timing.

Time, Death, Love quotes from Collateral Beauty

Time-They say you heal all wounds. You turn beauty into ash.  You don't understand time. Nobody understands time. Time is just an illusion.  You just give time, and you just waste it.  I don't want your prison sentence because you took her's.  Time is timeless, it is forever. Time finally catches up to us. Some think time is linear and others think it is an illusion.You wrote me because you need me. I'm gifting you and you're wasting it. Another thing, we question time's importance in life and the necessity of time.   We question the point of time and it's significance in life.
Death- Why are you here? We question why death is here? What's the point of life?  It all basically says your a natural part of life. Death gives time all of it's value. We question the aspects of death eternally and naturally. It all basically says you are a natural part of life.    Howard claims it's all intellectual stuff because she is not here.
Love- We don't get to choose who we love.  I'm in the power of everything. Howard you need to accept that so you can live again.  I did trust you and you betrayed me.  I'm the darkness, I'm the light, I'm the sunshine, and the rain.  I'm the reason for your pain.Love is the reason for everything. Love can be everything from happy to sad. Love is everywhere.   Just make sure you notice the Collateral Beauty........

Christ is Risen

Jesus' resurrection helps us see that he gives the ability to overcome our struggles in life because of what Christ overcame on the cross.  His resurrection gives the victory over sin.  He also gives us the hope we have in him and in our future eternal life in him.  Jesus uses suffering in our life to bring us closer to him and help bring us to become his disciples.

God's blessings and his work in my life

On my 30th birthday, God reminded of his blessings in my life and how he has worked in my life the past couple years.  He reminded that he is faithful and will be faithful to me in my future because of how he has worked in my past.  God showed me that he is trustworthy and worthy of all our praise.
A few weeks ago, God provided me with another job.  The job will allow me to work in the morning and early afternoon at that job then in mid afternoon at my other one.  The new job he gave me was more pay even though the hours are early in the morning. The employees are really nice and the manager for the new job is a really good guy.  The new job keeps me on my feet more the other job I currently have.
God also reminded of how he used me in HSM at Christ Chapel the past three to four years.  He showed me that he grew my ability to teach his Word and disciple others.  Also, he showed me the amount of impact I had on the students in our small group and in the ministry.  I received three to four messages on my phone and online from my small group guys.  It was really encouraging day and week for me.
Lastly, God showed me how he will provide for me in the future.  He reminded me of what he has already done in the past.  God revealed to me opportunities to serve at Travis Avenue and showed me he will provide me in a ministry job.  God has been showing me I need to daily trust him for his provisions for a full time job at a church and a godly woman he has called me to marry. He will provide for me in his timing.

New job

In this post I want to praise God for providing me with a new job.  This job pays more than my older one at Krogers and I get to be on my feet more.  Also, there is more stuff to do at this new job.  I thank the Lord for providing me this new job at the Einstein's/Noah's bagels company.   I think it will be a great fit for me.  They will provide me a lot more hours than Krogers once I work there a few weeks.
Also, my boss and employees are really nice.  It seems like a great atmosphere every day.  It gets really busy but everyone gets along well with each others.  I like the work environment a lot.  The employees are always helping me find things to do after I finish the cleaning.
Lastly, at Einstein's I am affirmed and appreciated.  An employee always says good job doing this or that.  I never get any sort of affirmation or appreciation at my other job.  Einstein's just seems like a great place to work until a ministry job opens up.

Philippians 1:6

One thing God has been teaching me is that he has been reminding how much he has used me the past three to four years and how much he will use me in the future.   God used me in teaching students God's Word during my time at Christ Chapel Bible church.  Also, God reminded me of my call to ministry and how he has used me in the past in various ministries.
In this post I will detail how God used me at Christ Chapel in the Student Ministry and I'm excited for what he will do through me in the future.  God used me during my time at Christ Chapel in teaching God's Word and growing me breaking down what he had to say to me.  He also used me to disciple students.  The small group has a whole grew in their relationship with Jesus Christ.  God showed me that he was glorified in how he used in during my time serving at the church.
Lastly, God showed me that he will use me in the future in a ministry job.   God has been using Philippians to show me specific things about growth and maturity in Christ.  I have to be content in him and he will provide for me in his timing. Also, if we fix our eyes on Jesus as the goal of our life he will lead us where he wants to go.  His plans are greater than our plans and his timing is greater than our timing.
