God will use everything we go through, even the mistakes we commited on our own, for good. Even when we think we are in control, He is in control.

From the beginning, God set our identity in stone with no ifs, ands, or buts attached. Believing this gives us the freedom to be exactly who God created us to be. We don’t dwell in the guilt of our mistakes or in the pride of our successes. Instead, we live right where God places us, knowing that we are enough for Him and that He is enough for us. Remember, our identity isn’t about what we do or don’t do. Instead, it is all about who God says we are. ~Markey Motsinger #blog #bloglife #bethelight #loveiseverywhere #shine #everylightshines #lightitup #thewaythetruththelife #wordpress #read #godslove #grace #lookup #surroundedbyhislove #trusttheprocess #hisloveneverfails #beautyiseverywhere #collateralbeauty #blessinginthemess #blessed #grateful #peace

One Sunday morning at a small southern church, the new pastor called on one of his older deacons to lead in the opening prayer. The deacon stood up, bowed his head and said,”Lord, I hate buttermilk.” The pastor opened one eye and wondered where this was going. The deacon continued, “Lord, I hate lard.” Now the pastor was totally perplexed. The deacon continued, “Lord, I ain’t too crazy about plain flour. But after you mix ’em all together and bake ’em in a hot oven, I just love biscuits.” “Lord, help us to realize when life gets hard, when things come up that we don’t like, whenever we don’t understand what You are doing, that we need to wait and see what You are making. After You get through mixing and baking, it’ll probably be something even better than biscuits. Amen.” Now, this is not to say there won’t be times for honest, broken-hearted mourning. We’ve all been alive long enough to know that such days will come. That said, the words of this wise deacon’s prayer ring true because in the work of Christ, everything resolves into resurrection. I pray that when things aren’t going your way, you’ll find the hopeful resolve to wait for, and even expect, the biscuits. Peace and joy, Pastor Jim **This story was shared with us.
