Spilling Out and Splashing Over!!

When the Lord is speaking to your heart, I believe He will use many avenues in which to drive home a point. He uses His word, others, teachings and sometimes just the simple ordinary things of life.

Case in point….

How do we share the love of God? Talk more about Him with everyone we come in contact with? Knock on doors and speak truth into the ones that open those doors? How can we do enough? How do we know that we are doing it the right way? Are we pleasing Him?

We have to really quit trying.

Not that any of the preceding things are necessarily wrong if one feels the Holy Spirit leading. But friends, you cannot make it happen on your own.

Quit trying.

Rest in who we are IN CHRIST.

Several teachings have come before me as well as discussions about this very thing!

Once we realize how much the Father loves us and tmud-453891_640ruly grasp the depth of His love, we cannot help it. It splashes off of us. It spills out of us. We actually fill up with Him!

Like a can of soda being poured into a small glass…it eventually spills over. Or driving your car through a puddle of rain…it splashes all over your car! Both are unavoidable.

 Romans 15_13

And of course, I filled my coffee cup just a little too full the other day….guess what happened?

So friends, rest. Know you are loved….and spill over on those all around you. You probably won’t even realize it!!

IN CHRIST ALONE

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~

  1. I really appreciate this post! I was just thinking about how we are always striving and how hard it is to rest in God’s love. Great message. Thank you!
