Complete the Work - Beloved Women - December 30, 2022
READ: “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6 ESV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: A couple of months ago, I brought all my plants home from work since we are now teleworking. I knew that I needed to repot all of them but kept delaying the process. Well what better time to do them, now that I have them at home. I would notice that the leaves would grow and then die. I knew that it was not getting over watered because I only watered it once a week. So, I figured it probably needed to be repotted.
I tried to spread the roots apart, but they were solid. I found a bigger pot and added some new soil. I placed the plant inside, added more soil to cover the sides, and the top completely, and then I watered it down good. Within a week, it looked very healthy, and it was growing like crazy.
God will allow things to change around you to force you to move or make the necessary changes because He knows that you want to do it on your own. Sometimes it is disguised in trauma, heartbreak, and pain. It is not meant to kill or destroy you, but to realign you for the purpose he has called you to and to make you better.
In this season, God is healing you, redeveloping you and redefining who you are. He is expanding your territory and stretching your capacity. You want to be able to fit in the container that once held you. Allow God to complete the work that He started in you.
PRAY: Dear Heavenly Father, we thank you that no matter what we may go through or may experience, that You are using all for Your Glory. That even in our darkest moment, that You do not leave us where we are, but You continue to push us where we need to be. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
REFLECT: What are some things that you put on hold? What do you need to do to get back in alignment?
