Oh How He Delights In Giving Us Gifts

Well I have been having some struggles of late but this weekend the Lord with all His glory has really shown me grace and through His grace He has given me wisdom that will be cherished always.

The wisdom was

Hey Mo if you are going to talk the talk you best learn to walk the walk.

I have walked in many shoes,some too big and others way too small.

The one thing that was the same is that blisters were always a given.
Time for me to walk comfortably in the shoes that are meant for me and only me.

Well I have had some issues at work. Management on days can be less than desireable.
The tension is incredible and to have to listen to some real cruels words can be unbearable.
Lord get me through them.
It has been so bad that I wear a security device (which we all wear) ,however I chose pager 91 and the girls know this is mine to wear and they give it to me when I come in.
Why 91?
Psalm 91: The Protection of the Most High
It was spoken over me just over a year now.
The past few weeks I decided to take a situation into my own hands,feeling that I was right in every sense of the way.
Humanly I believed I was
Spiritually Ya not so much.
Went to the wrong authority first The owner.
Then to other management but not to my direct manager after all she was part of the issue.
Well guess what 12 days ago I was called into the office and reprimanded by my manager.
While being spoken to I was praying not to try and justify my actions and definitely not to open my big mouth unless there was kind words waiting to escape.
"Lord blunt my tongue now more than ever"
He Did
I learned responsibility the hard way about the chain of command.
What was really interesting the week prior we learned about this in ISOM.
I decided to pray for my boss to not be afraid to show the inner beauty of her heart instead of
Lord get me out of this place.

Last week we learned about patience in ISOM
I am not always patient with the desires of my heart.
With that being said, now that my kitchen is done I now have the desire
(ladies this is a first for me) to have cute little nicknack's in the kitchen. Just something to make it perfect.
Well I saw it and stared at it for a week.
This perfect decoration had one motive for me and one only.
An in your face daily reminder for my family as my main desire is to have my husband and children come to know the Lord.
Kevin advised me not to preach but to walk in the word and they will notice a change.
I called Steve and he said no it's $32.00 and we don't have the money this week maybe next week.
I wanted it now and was very disappointed cause Mo just couldn't wait,which lead to some anger within I prayed Saturday night as I felt guilty for wanting such a monetary thing when bills needed to be paid.
I told the Lord I didn't need this little thing as my true desire was my family believing in Him.
Sunday I went to work the mood was awesome and it has been since the chat in the office.
My boss and I worked together side by side and everything was calm serene and enjoyable.
As the day ended for her she picked up a few things and was headed out for her Thanksgiving dinner but she had one last stop.

A Stop to my counter to give me the desire of my heart.

The tears flowed and the Praise and thankfulness began

He gave me the desire of my heart through the most unlikely person.

My Manager

He showed me the goodness in her heart and he taught me that I need to go to Him first

for answeres.

He showed me the Chain of Command

He showed me Praying for others in authority, for their job isn't as easy as we think it should be.

First of all,I urge that petitions,prayers,intercessions,and thanksgivings be made for everyone,for kings and all those who are in authority,so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.

1Tim 2:1-2

but most of all

He showed me the shoes that I need to be walking in, are the shoes He purposely and with love picked out for me.

The shoes of Faith and Trust.

When in those shoes no matter how wobbly I am He will never let me fall

3 Trust in the LORD and do what is good;dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.4 Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.5 Commit your way to the LORD;trust in Him and He will do this:6 He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.Psalm 37: 3-6
