There's Still Work!

Wow! It's been such a long time since I last connected with you. Life has been full and so much has changed and is changing in our current world. In the midst of what might feel like chaos for many, this is also a great time to remember the work God has begun in you! Do you know that passage in Philippians where we are promised that "God, who began the good work within us will continue His work until it is finally finished..?" This verse has inspired and challenged me recently. Do you know why? I'm glad you asked!

This promise was not paused because of our current circumstances.

This means that the work God began in you is still in progress even in the midst of this global crisis. As the world seems to have fallen off its axis, God is still continuing the work He began in you. While our economy has halted and productivity has decreased, God is still at work in you - conforming you to the image of his son, bringing you to the expected end he has in mind, and leading you from faith to faith, from strength to strength, and from glory to glory.

So, in what areas can you see God at work in you life? Are there opportunities for you to grow in patience? Self-control? Generosity? Perhaps God is calling you to a deeper level of devotion to Him. Send me a message and let me know - I'd love to add you to my prayer list!
