What is Taking Me So Long???????

This is a powerful quote ladies...... Do not despise small beginnings as God is always preparing ...... Expect to be used of God..........

It takes a lifetime to prepare a sermon because it takes a lifetime to prepare a man of God.

Arthur Wood

I will no longer complain that it took God so long to get me to the place I am today......... I have been a work in progress...... and as long as I draw breath........ He will continue to prepare me..

In Christ

We are always a work in progress, my friend. From the day we are born, no, even while we are still in the womb, God is molding us and continues to do so until we return home.

Blessings and love,

Dear Denise,
I was brought here by my good friend Mysti, and I wanted to finally leave you my first comment! What a wonderful inspirational blog and this post speaks me immediately about our worth 'at this moment' even as a work in progress.

The Lord promises that he will hold us in His hands at the moment, this moment, while we are in progress of growing. The encouraging video by Mr. Giglio also reinforces this. I am grateful to see my worth in the Lord's eyes, and what a blessing that you have posted these things.

What a needed and beautiful reminder. Somehow, this is the message that is most strongly coming to me and I wanted to tell you that I appreciate you posting the thoughts of your heart.
