Shatter the Box

What a great day it has been today! After taking a small hiatus from the blogging world to thoroughly enjoy my new baby boy... I was inspired today to share with you a small excerpt from our MOPS this morning.  

A friend of mine shared with us today about the incredible things God is doing in her life and how He is using her family in incredible ways for His glory.  She shared with us how we often put an invisible box around God and keep things need and tidy in our relationship with Him.  Yes, God is good, yes, He loves us, yes, He takes care of us... and we completely miss out on how INCREDIBLE He truly is.  We forget about how huge and awesome He is.  How He is able to do more than we can possibly imagine.  That He is still performing miracles - even healing the blind and sick - all around the world.  


Are you limiting God in your life? Do you really believe that He is all powerful? 
Do you live like He is all powerful? Do you believe in faith that He can actually 
do what you are praying for? 
Do you risk everything that you have and step out in faith every single day

I know this is something that I need to work on.  

I would like to share part of her notes:

"The issue comes down to how much of ourselves we invest in Jesus.  
Have we held some back for ourselves - just in case He's not as real, 
as powerful, as active as we thought? Just in case He doesn't come through? 
Just in case He can't be taken at His word? 
Or have we banked everything we have and everything we are on the 
reality that Jesus Christ is Lord of all the earth?"

God is who He says He is.  
He is unchanging, worthy of our trust in Him, and ALL POWERFUL!

Trust in these things and don't let your fear or doubt hold you back! 
God has called us to so much more.    

much love,
