What is God Doing in Your Life?

This is a question I often ask friends. I love hearing God-stories. I love to know how others are experiencing God at work in their lives. My heart starts pumping hard when I listen to reports of God spreading His glory across the globe.

Today, I’m handing the blog space over to you and hope you’ll fill it up with some God-stories. 

Let’s use this page to exalt Jesus by sharing some of the redemptive works you’re experiencing right now. It doesn’t have to be some dramatic earth-shaking event. Share how He spoke to you in your quiet time, what He’s teaching you through your interaction with your children, how He is leading you.

Here are a few questions to get you going:

Have you shared the gospel with anyone lately? Tell us about it.

Has God answered a specific prayer? Tell us about it.

What is God teaching you through His Word? Tell us about it.

Is God leading you in a new direction in your life? Tell us about it.

Has God recently provided for a critical need in your life (or a loved one)? Share, please share!

Tomorrow, I’ll be sharing with you something that God is doing in my life right now, but today I hope you’ll light up this space with some God-glorifying God stories!

    Dear Kimberly,
    The year of 2008 brought much pain and turmoil. That was the year God walked with us through a painful journey of healing our marriage. The year ended with much rejoicing as we stood before a small group and renewed our vows. Gods grace and mercy was poured out in our marriage and we were astounded at it all. Now my husband completes his undergraduate degree in May and begins classes at SBTS in the fall. Again, Gods undeserved grace and mercy as we follow him at mid-life to do as he leads. Your book has been a reminder of the continued and on-going grace that God intends marriage to reflect. Your book has been a door-opener to mentoring young married girls and encouraging those ladies who have been married for some time. Thank you for allowing God to minister through your story.
    In christ,
    Joyce

    Hello, Joyce ~

    Thank you for sharing some of your story. It is so exciting to hear how God has been at work in your life! You are in a precious season as you continue to obey God’s voice in ministry. Please stay in touch as you transition to SBTS (that institution holds a special place in my heart :)). You will be offered excellent and challenging opportunities to learn and grow there.

    Joyce, I can’t tell you what a gift of encouragement it is to me personally, to know you are using “Fierce Women” to mentor young women. I am truly humbled to think how God has taken our broken and messed up lives, brought healing and transformation, and is now using that story to help others. He is amazing, isn’t He?

    Stay in touch, friend, pausing to pray for you and your husband now ~

    Kimberly,

    I see God’s hand at work in my life. He’s teaching me how to trust Him more. I’m afraid. He’s teaching me to worship and praise Him inspite of the trial and turmoil in my marry life, which to say the least is causing a lot of emotions, just to name a few sadness and anger. He is orchestrating events and presenting opportunities for me to be a witness for Him in the midst of my pain. People are confiding in me about some of their troubles and it’s at that time strength comes from the Spirit of God to witness and testify of God’s goodness, grace and mercy. I surprise myself because at the time I’m saying it I believe it for them, but find it difficult to trust and believe it for myself. Also, He’s showing me that someone else is worst off than me which makes me become more grateful.

    ~Blessings

    Hello, Naomi ~

    Thank you for sharing with us what He is doing in you and through you as you walk through this painful season. This Scripture that came to mind as I read your comment:

    But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit. (2 Cor. 3:18)

    As you look to Jesus, as you behold Him, He will continue to do that sweet work of transforming. He will supply you with all that you need to trust Him and reflect Him to others.

    May you be fully refreshed in His presence this day ~

    While taking a Bible class, I was asked to write a tract on an aspect of God’s character. I chose God’s grace. I submit it here in hopes that it will draw someone’s heart out of painful bondage and closer to Jesus.

    A PECULIAR SHADE OF GRACE
    Imagine checking a book out of your local library on a Friday afternoon and relishing the anticipation of tucking away in a cozy corner of your home and delighting in the prospects of being swept away into someone else’s whimsical world.
    As you nestle in and begin turning the pages, you quickly sense that this story is not delivering the hoped-for peaceful retreat. Instead, you are invited to journey alongside a woman who recounts years of sexual betrayal as a child at the hands of her grandfather when she otherwise should have been playing with dolls and drawing chalk ponies on sidewalks. Page after page reveals unsolicited poison being injected into her heart and soul. The pain and confusion lingered long after she swallowed the last of the nearly-weekly secrets decades earlier.
    Now let’s move from the pages of that book to the pages of my heart. Maybe my circumstances don’t precisely describe yours, but is it a familiar, disappointing reality in your life that some parts of it you wish you had not endured? Maybe you were robbed in a different way—robbed of the joys of motherhood as you watched your younger sister raise a quiver full, robbed of your dream job at the hands of a friend less qualified, robbed of the scholarship others confirmed you deserved way more than the recipient. You fill in the blank. Maybe you’re shaking your head and thinking, “This is not what I signed up for.”
    In my situation, the world would affirm that I should be mad at God AND my grandfather. There are many who would shake their fist and demand justice. Naturally speaking, it is difficult to imagine that there would be any other way out of this prison of confusion and guilt and shame. Wouldn’t revenge be the most freeing answer?
    You may be wondering how grace could possibly fit into this situation. You see, when I came to understand what Christ did for me on Calvary—how He died for my sins, and how my sins nailed Jesus to the cross every bit as much as my grandfather’s did—it was then that I was able to fully and completely forgive my granddad. It may seem that grace (undeserved favor) was undeservedly rewarded to a guilty man, but this step of forgiveness actually released me from the chains of anger and bitterness.
    In Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus sends us a life line. Here is His invitation: “Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
    As you walk through life, are there chains of sadness, or anger, or disappointments that you just cannot break free from? Have you suffered the added consequences that unforgiveness heaps onto a weary soul? Things like hatred? Resentment? Bitterness?
    Are you ready to take the peculiar step of forgiving someone who deserves it the least? Ask Jesus to help you. You will be amazed to see that the prisoner who gets set free is you.

    Dearest Sue ~

    Thank you for allowing us to know how God has met with you. Thank you for being willing to open up and share your story, so touching, so beautifully written. I am so thankful grace met you in your pain. Thankful you are taking what the enemy meant for destruction and using it to glorify our Savior. Praising Him for the grace and forgiveness He provides.
