This heart of mine, I say that a lot. My heart is so soft, the silliest things hurt my feelings. Everyone says, don’t take it personal. That approach doesn’t seem to work for me. My “hurt” feelings seem to reach into the very depths of my heart. This morning I realized my circle had gotten smaller. You would think one would grow used to it at this point on my journey, but it still hurt. It hurt more than it came from a sister in Christ. I heard my Poppa say, I told you your circle would be small. Not everyone can go where I am taking you. Draw into me.
I sat on my bed looking out the window, watching leaves peacefully fall. There appeared to be a gentle breeze blowing through the trees. You are never alone; I am all around you. I dwell within you my Poppa whispered. Then I saw something in the trees, I thought it was a bird at first, but it was a squirrel. He was frolicking on the branches. He appeared to be all alone, but enjoying the morning air. You need to be more like that squirrel. Stop focusing on hurt and what you don’t have. I will supply your every need. Those leaving your circle are doing so because I am moving them out and more are to come. I have placed you there for such a time as this. It is time to draw unto me as WE walk into your destiny.
Wow, that’s heavy. God blessed me with this heart of mine. He has instilled in me a love for everyone, the lost and saved. What good is it to be a light to only God’s people? No, He wants His light to shine so bright through me that the lost are drawn to Him. He wants me to encourage others through the paths I’ve taken. I may have went off path along the way (okay, I took a lot of detours), but He always draws me back. It’s those detours and His grace that gives me the fuel to tell others you can get through this. I can say His grace is sufficient for me and you because I’ve seen it on those detours. Yes, my circle is smaller this morning. Jesus’ circle got pretty small too, so I’m in the best of company. No matter how small my circle, Jesus is in the middle holding in those that should be there and sending out those that shouldn’t. That overall plan makes my heart smile even when it feels broken. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
