Are you letting the Lord change you to a LOVE letter? ❤️
This past Sunday we had such a great guest speaker. His name is Chet Lowe and I talked a little about his message on the blog post a few days ago down below... I think I put a link to the message if you want to listen.
A lot of times the message on Sunday inspires me to create a bible journaling page and this was definitely the case last week.
In 2 Corinthians 3:1-3 it talks about the Spirit of the living God is in us! Think about that. The kingdom of heaven is in YOU. That should blow your mind... It also says we are like a letter, read by all men... Ok I don't know about you but I'm in trouble if you read my "letter" yesterday... I'm not sure what kind of letter you would have read because I was a mess! Yes people are "reading" us, we are an example to the world. I've thought about this many times over the course of my life and it's easy to push to the back of our minds. Forget about. We don't want to think we are being watched or held accountable?? No, I'm just living my life the way I know best... But sorry to say people, as much as we'd like to think we are an island...we ARE being "watched, read" or whatever you want to call it.
We are a living letter...
So what are people reading when they read you? Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Not such a great letter... Well guess what:
The Lord God wants to change us and turn the letter WE would write into the letter HE would write on our hearts!
Thank you Jesus. I don't know about you, but I need that! I need Him to change me...
And the GREAT news is:
The Lord has given us the TOOLS of His righteousness! We have His word and His Holy Spirit in us. In Romans 6:13-14 is says" And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall NOT have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under GRACE."
Yes and Amen Lord, please change us! So I ask you...
What kind of letter are you today?
I pray we will all be open to having the Lord write our story.
Here's a live video from one of my favorite artists, Francesca Battistelli. Let's take a look at ourselves. Are we being honest? I hope it blesses you:
❤️ Have a blessed day,
P.S. I'm working on all the plans for this summers Art & Faith Creative Retreats so if you are still on the fence about joining us in ITALY, I hope you will prayerfully consider it. We are going to have an AMAZING time with Cori Spieker in June and Shanna Noel and Junelle Jacobsen in September! I know where "God guides, God provides" so be in prayer and see if this is something the Lord is putting on your heart. We would LOVE for you to join us in this weeklong event of our faith and His art and beauty in such an awe inspiring place as Lake Como, Italy! (and the picture at the top... that's one of the beautiful villas we will be visiting and it DOES take your breath away!)
