Rags to Royalty

"Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing." Psalm 34:8-10
God is getting bigger in my life, something I didn't think could be possible since He's already big enough for my mind to completely grasp Him. Yet, He is consuming me. Not in a way that makes you stressful or burdened. Quite the opposite. He is consuming my heart, thoughts and time with His love. A love that you can feel. A love that feels so real. It is real. I'm letting my walls shatter before Him. I am giving Him my brokenness, the one I can't deal with anymore. He is transforming me from this hopeless girl in rags into His radiant princess...into His beloved daughter.

Have you ever felt like this? The mirror is a constant reminder of how fall I short from beauty, worth and perfection. But by His loving grace, He allows me to come into His presence and ask Him to cleanse me and make me more like Him. I have to confess, lately, I've been silent and cold with Him. I have not spent time with Him, at all. I've not opened His letters to me, the living Word, in days. I have not trusted Him. My shame and frustration have held me down. But I'm tired of letting the enemy win the short battles. I am standing up, even when my heart is weak. I am trusting God, even if I don't understand what is going on around me. I have authority over the enemy and no weapon against me shall remain. God is still in His throne, He is still in control, regardless of the seasons I'm going through. Whether that be the desert, wilderness, fire or harvest. I have more than enough reasons to worship Him...to give myself to Him. He is still sustaining me, just like He has always done. I am still called with a purpose, even if this world falls apart. He is still my Lover and my Husband; My Savior & Redeemer. If He fills me, I have to pour it out just so that I could be emptied again. I am complete in Him. How quickly do I forget He is Lord. How quickly I forget I am His. How quickly I forget His purposes.

I encourage you to let Him satisfy you with His love. Be content with what you have. Worship him always and seek Him. You will find Him and He will shower you with His never ending love and provision. He does not forsake you. Meditate on His Word and fight the flesh & the enemy. You will overcome.
