As I crawled into bed, I took my phone and browsed my shop some more, saying aloud the cards I was going to delete. But then something amazing happened - I accidentally hit the sold item button and at that moment my browser refreshed. It refreshed because someone just ordered the largest order ever! And she ordered cards I wanted to delete. You want to know what I did next? I cried my little heart out! I felt like an idiot because I was making this shop about me - my profit, my fame. And God, in His perfect timing, came close to me that night and encouraged me!
I cried because I felt His arms around me. I know you probably think I sound crazy, but really that's what I felt. I heard His voice saying, "Sweet child, this shop is for My glory - My fame!" How could I get so distracted from the point? How did I allow my joy to minimize?
This woman opened herself to be used my God. I emailed her and told her what happened and how she was used. And guess what? That week she was asking God to show her how He was using her!!!! I just can't get enough of what God does to show us how He loves us all.
So, wherever you are today and whatever you are facing, I ask that you give it to God. Be encouraged today, friend for He will come to us like rain (Hosea 6:3).
