This week I was really super blessed at the Friday night youth study. I am always really happy to have "my kids" over, and am blessed to be going through God's word with them in our home, but there was something different about this week that really just blessed me.
It could have been the fact that I have changed so much. Even just to be walking in obedience by learning to play the guitar... I am always happy to show Deserie (our youth worship leader) what I have practiced.
But I think it was that and the scripture this week was particularly AWESOME! It was the second half of Ephesians chapter four.
God told me flat out on Friday... "Carolyn, don't CHOOSE to walk any longer just as the Gentiles walk... don't exclude yourself from the life you have in Me... stop making your heart calloused and hard... stop being caught up with yourself in greediness with impurity and sensuality... you did not learn Christ is this way hunny... you are to lay that woman aside... put her to death and leave her in the grave... renew your spirit in Me and keep this new woman on... I called you to be set apart from the world... lay aside the falsehood and be real with Me... do not give the devil an opportunity my dear... don't act on things that would cause My Spirit to be grieved within you... walk in a manner worthy of what I have purposed for you to be... be kind, tenderhearted, and forgiving just as I have been to you, I love you... you need to fight my love, fight against yourself and fight again satan who is happy for you to fall and waits there to destroy you... don't be self pleasing any longer, but minister to others... put away all the things you do that are against other people, I love them and want to use you to minister to them... I have a plan for you, a plan of peace and not evil, a beautiful plan with a future and a hope, I love you Carolyn."
It was beautiful, when my husband was reading and teaching God was throwing other scriptures in my head in between and it was all just so encouraging and loving... I hope you would be blessed by it also.
Walk and talk with Him ladies for He loves you and is for you more than you know!
