I learned a lot spiritually in 2015 and I am sharing it with you. You can look back through my blog if you want the full version, but the cliff notes are below. I got to know God in a way, I have not known Him before. I look forward to what 2016 holds.
Mourning is a process. You have good days and bad days. Own it, but don’t wallow in it. Ecclesiastes 7:2
Sometime we wait because the Lord has to take the teeth out of the serpent that is waiting to bite you Psalm 61:4
all of the struggles we are currently going through is God cultivating our hearts. He is taking hard dry ground and enabling it to grow something Ezekiel 11:19
Sometimes our blessings are in the storm Ezekiel 34:26
Remember who I am praying to. Revelation 4 tells me that I am not praying to a really good human being. He sits on the throne with flashes of lightning and peals of thunder. Four very scary creatures watch over him. He is mighty, all powerful and sovereign.
We work better together. God put us in community to work together. I am so blessed to be among a group of women who love and serve Jesus. Hebrews 10:24-25
He continually reveals himself to me. He tells me He loves me every day whether I hear it or not. Deuteronomy 29:29, 1 John 3:1, 1 John 4:10
He trusts us with moments, don’t take any for granted. Some people you are never going to see again. Act like it. Isaiah 43:10
When things I want are not in line with what God wants, Be Still. Trust Him. Psalm 46:10, Proverbs 3:5-6
Prayer is an effective tool to communicate with Him. James 5:16
Until you are dead, it is not too late to start anything. Remember the Sunday School class for women in their 80s.
I think God listens to our crappy prayers and decides to teach us a lesson by teaching us we don’t know what we are talking about.
Even though some things do not fit right now, I know that it will all come together because the one who made the plan completes everything. 1 Peter 2:7
I need friends who will remind me of God’s faithfulness. Deuteronomy 7:9
Fearing the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. There are lots of scary things on the planet earth, but there is none that I fear above the Lord. The study of Revelation has given me a grand picture of who it is I worship. It is not an accident that there are lots of thunderstorms and earthquakes in the area during the year we are studying Revelation. He is giving us an overview before the real thing happens. Deuteronomy 10: 12-13.
CeCe Winans says it best. Worship Him.
