I thank the Lord for helping me find #obedience, #clarity, and #joy today.
From start to finish, God challenged me to respond to His voice and to complete things in His way today. He encouraged me and reminded me of my commitment to Him every step of the way so that I would see clarity resulting from each step taken. God’s joy was found in the results of our work and also in the joy of home. (Reviewing accomplished works in my business excites me, and #home always brings a special kind of joy – today God allowed me to bake a cake for my husband and to create in the kitchen with my #Homemade #Chocolate #Buttercream #Frosting)! It feels great to follow the pattern of the Lord, because that is where you’re able to be effective!
So I move forward in this journey, looking to God as I make each step, looking to make a difference in the things and way that God has called for me to achieve.
How will you begin to respond to the Lord’s process for your life?
