Pink Saturday: When I Am Less, God Is More

Hello friends…

I wasn’t sure what I had to share for Pink Saturday today, but reading Beverly’s post I decided to dig through my files and find something of use to help with the Miracle Makeover cause.  Funny how God works…everything within us is of value to Him, whether we see it or not,  if we say “yes”, and just open our minds and hearts.

So here is my Pink Saturday offering…may it make a difference in the life of Charlie and his family.

Oh Lord, help me to understand that the less I do,
the more you can do; and the more you can do,
the more can be done through me.

God bless you, Charlie dear….may you “Live and proclaim the works of the Lord!” Psalm 118:17

If I were to list my blessings, this post would never end.  To forget those troubled things which are behind and move forward is not an easy venture for me, but I am learning.

I am ever grateful to God for teaching me more everyday about Himself and how to live within His Kingdom,  good health, my 21 year old son, Robert, and most recently God’s gift of being published.  All three gifts took years of much patience and faith, which I will admit was not always easy.  But I am learning that if we can get our thoughts to line up with the thoughts of God, understanding what He truly wants for us, then as Christ said, if we can believe, “ALL things are possible with God.”  Mark 11:22-24 along with Romans 4:17  have meant the world to me, and their profound and simple, yet not always easy truths are life changing in a dramatic way.  I wish that for all.

Until next time, may happy days abound.

Marianne
