I had my face melted off in early January. Trudging towards the end of my first, quite miserable trimester, I had been swimming in a sea of discontentment with a lot of things and frustrated with people- People who have failed me, that have disregarded myself or my husband, blah, blah, blah.
But then something happened that moved me towards repentance. Fresh vision. A new perspective. Even as Christians, we all need a good dose of repentance sometimes. It says in the Word,
“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord…”
Ah, yes, times of refreshing… And that is a promise indeed!
This message by Christine Caine, founder of the A21 Campaign, struck a chord with me. I was reminded again that it’s not about me, my “rights”, who owes me what, or anything of that nature- that just feeding into my own selfishness. I am called to serve others and leave the rest up to the LoRd. He alone will be my Defender. It’s the small decisions and actions I make today that will have a profound difference in my future.
Check out this session at the World Mandate Conference in 2013 entitled Anointing to the Appointing by Christine Caine. I pray this video will strike a chord in your heart and move you closer to all that He’s called you to.
