I’m so excited to share a great friend with you today. You will love her words and new book. Check it out!
Let’s face it: we’re gonna fall. It’s a part of life we need to learn to embrace. Falling isn’t what causes failure; it’s refusing to get back up again that can be dangerous. It doesn’t matter how many times you fall, just never fail to get back up again.
I can recall a day that wasn’t going so well. I had been stumbling through darkness all morning. I realized this after I read John 8:12. My day began to replay in my mind just like scenes from a bad movie. I heard the alarm go off. I remember the phone ringing. I saw the mess I needed to clean. I felt
the aggravation of the overflowing commode and the absence of toothpaste.
I sensed the urgency of getting something to eat for the kids and
getting their daily lessons started. I heard the clanging of breakfast bowls right before I turned around and paused. Suddenly I heard Him say something to my spirit that I will never forget.
“Amy, as long as you follow Me, it is impossible that I did not walk before you and prepare the way.”
Wow! How profound is that? As I began to absorb this into my spirit and my intellect I realized how true it is. It would be impossible! If I am following Him then He has to be in front of me. My eyes must be on Him. If He is walking before me then He has to be preparing the way. He is lighting the path for me. He is showing me how to avoid the obstacles. He is guiding
me through the day.
How do I follow Him? I keep Him as my number one priority in everything.
I go to Him every day before I do anything else. I must always be aware of
His presence. I acknowledge Him everywhere I go and in everything that
“Falling” according to the world’s standard and definition is going to be very different from “falling” in God’s standards. Sometimes I think the world’s standards carry much more weight than that of God’s. The standard is there, but the lie that we need to please everyone melts away. There is only One we need to focus on.
If you’ve ever wanted to tear the 31st chapter of Proverbs out of your bible this book is for you.
She is a wife, mom, business owner, seamstress, she serves the needy, speaks life and wisdom, and seems to be quite the major overachiever, perfectionist type.
Except that…she’s not.
Come along and journey with Amy and take a look at the real woman of Proverbs 31. She isn’t as perfect as she seems. In fact, I think she is a lot like you and me.
