He comes to us

Confession time! The other night, I came home a bit exhausted from work. I was little "Debbie Downer" to say the least. I was hating on my shop, give with JOY. I hated designs, I hated that I didn't have time to redesign my blog. I wanted to delete it all...getting the picture here?

As I crawled into bed, I took my phone and browsed my shop some more, saying aloud the cards I was going to delete. But then something amazing happened - I accidentally hit the sold item button and at that moment my browser refreshed. It refreshed because someone just ordered the largest order ever! And she ordered cards I wanted to delete. You want to know what I did next? I cried my little heart out! I felt like an idiot because I was making this shop about me - my profit, my fame. And God, in His perfect timing, came close to me that night and encouraged me!

I  cried because I felt His arms around me. I know you probably think I sound crazy, but really that's what I felt. I heard His voice saying, "Sweet child, this shop is for My glory - My fame!" How could I get so distracted from the point? How did I allow my joy to minimize?

This woman opened herself to be used my God.  I emailed her and told her what happened and how she was used. And guess what? That week she was asking God to show her how He was using her!!!! I just can't get enough of what God does to show us how He loves us all.

So, wherever you are today and whatever you are facing, I ask that you give it to God. Be encouraged today, friend for He will come to us like rain (Hosea 6:3).
