Where is our reality? Do we mask our sin? God is faithful. He helps us command our soul. We must not forget everything God has done for us, like the people of Israel did, but being open to the Lord means He will use us.
This is only a summary of a theme we see in today’s Quotes From You. God’s faithfulness and mankind struggling to rely on Him.
These were the quotes that spoke to me in the months of November & December.
“He is still faithful even when our minds cannot comprehend what is happening around us.” Efua (Grace Over Pain)
“Many are not hungry for God because they are filled with junk. Until we starve ourselves from junk, we cannot and will not hunger for Him.” Efua (Grace Over Pain)
“I’ve been learning what it looks like to command my soul to not fear, to hope in God, to rest in the Lord. I always know in my head that I should do those things, but the recent uproar meant I had to actively choose them against a temptation to fear and despair.” Olivia (Olivia In Bolivia)
“God is continuing to teach me to command my soul – to command it to not fear in the midst of the storm in Bolivia. To command it to rejoice even when the future is uncertain. To command it to love even when I’m tired.” Olivia (Olivia in Bolivia)
“Like the people of Israel who had witnessed the parting of the Red Sea as well as the Jordan, I grumbled about the battles before me instead of pausing to remember with gratitude God’s miraculous work in the immediate past.” Lynn (Through Ink & Image)

“Despite the darts that were thrown my way, given up was never an option. I knew I had come too far to give up. God’s grace and presence was so strong.” Efua (Grace Over Pain)
“Be thankful for my blessings. I need to name them one by one, because I am prone to forget, in my eagerness for the next thing. ” Brenda (Becoming HIS Tapestry)
