I am so honored to feature the writing of Donielle Robinson. Donielle has such a servant’s heart and has been a huge blessing to my family. She has willingly babysat my children, offered words of encouragement and read just about every post I have published from when I first started blogging. The Lord has done a great work in her and the process continues. I hope you are as blessed by this post as I was.
This weekend, my friend Jill decided to come and make my house cute which is a prayer answered. We were able to fix up a few things and make my house look cute. We did not finish everything, but we made some major improvements. My room now looks like a hotel. We worked on several projects including my dresser. She painted my dresser and found that some of the drawers needed additional screws and fixed them. I didn’t even know they were broken. This reminded me of how God works in our lives.
When we have a yes in our spirit, and embrace God’s will for our lives, He fixes areas we didn’t even know were broken. Like my dresser,we do not know it’s broken or we may get so used to living with a deficit that we don’t think things will change. This year has been a year of brokenness for me from my phone to my health (and other areas). I am thankful for the brokenness because God has delivered me from long standing issues, answered prayers and increases my faith. So as you wait for prayers to be answered,situations to change,etc embrace the process. Learn. Grow. Be challenged. Ask for help. Praise Him in Advance. Find your hope knowing God is in control.
Psalm 100:1-5 NIV
Shout for joy to the Lord , all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his ; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
