John 1: 14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
This verse hit me today. It is about Jesus. The Word is the Bible, it became flesh (Jesus) and made His dwelling among us, even now through the Holy Spirit.
That’s why the Bible is ALIVE, it is a living, breathing, for lack of better words, book. You can read it a million times and each time something new can become ALIVE to you. It all depends on when God wants to open your eyes to it in your own life. It doesn’t mean the meaning of it changes, the meaning of it in your life, your situation changes.
I re read my blog about my friend being beat and the Scripture God gave me for her became ALIVE for me TODAY.
Genesis 50:20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
I was asking God the other day to let me know what I was going to do for a living. I took the verse above meaning He wasn’t answering my specific question yet. Today as I read it again, it hit me, He opened my eyes to it today. He used it to also answer my question.
I also was victim to many abuses and it took my worth from me. God delivered me from all that pain and gave me new worth and purpose. Now through Mary Kay He can use it for His glory. Mary Kay is a huge tool to use to witness to women in so many different ways. Inner beauty, healing from abuse, it’s all about worth and shame being in proper perspective.
I also told God when I had this revelation of being serious about my business, that this would be huge in the trust area, because I would be depending on Him providing through this business, so I can provide for my family without a guaranteed wage. The 21st verse says I will provide for you and your children………
I am even stronger today about Mary Kay as my calling. He turned everything around, everything everyone meant to harm me with, God is now using to save others.
