So Much Time

During prayer today the Lord convicted me of how much time we waste in self promotion and making sure everyone knows who did what. Why can't we just do what he has called us to? He is the one that deserves the glory. Promotion comes from the Lord- not man.

Those are easy words to type but oh to hard to live. What we don't realize is that when we feel that we constantly have to self promote or justify or announce all that we have done- we are really taking on a heavier yoke. HE says- my yoke is easy and my burden light.

When we break free of self promotion and enjoy the daily journey with Christ- he has a way of opening up the right doors for us. Joseph did not have a twitter account and somehow managed to get from prison to the palace with just the Lord as his promotional director.  Rest in Him. He has called you. He has chosen you and he will promote you. Everything you do gets noticed by him. Don't look to the left or to the right at others. Stop comparing yourself. YOU are exactly the person he is going to use today!

Once He reminded me... 'her works shall praise her in the gates' so you don't have to do the promoting. OUCH! ;) Brenda
