He equips the called || a very random post!

 “For we are HIS workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Ephesians 2:10

Have you thought about the fact that God has not called us to a place or position that He will not also provide the grace and strength needed to victoriously, joyfully live out for His glory[2 Cor 12:9]? That has been on my mind today! I recently heard someone say, “God doesn’t call the equipped…He equips the called”[Eph 2:10 Β» Phil 2:13]. ☺️ He will equip us and  give us the grace & strength needed for the place He has called us! Wherever the Lord has us today, in our weakness, God’s strength is going to be revealed and His grace is sufficient. That has me rather excited friends!! πŸ’› Some of you might be thinking, “But you don’t know what I am facing and have no idea what I am going through!!” True, I don’t know but GOD does. And in every situation, He will be our Victor [“The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” -Ex 14:14]! In our own strength we cannot face the challenges we will find ourselves in throughout life but in God’s strength, we are more than conquers[Rom 8:31-39]! If you face a challenge today and are tempted to stress- take a deep breath and [with thanksgiving!!] pray for God’s strength to overcome the challenge you face and for His peace which surpasses all understanding[Phil 4:6-7]! Remember you have not found yourself here by mistake[Ps 32:8]! This is a custom designed challenge created just for you. NOW it is up to you to joyfully accept His perfect will, trusting Him to equip you and victoriously lead you through[Is 43:2-3]! So, as I sit here with a cup of coffee in hand allowing God’s truth to soak in to my heart, I’m counting my blessings! Each day is filled. Filled with God’s goodness, His grace, His strength and for that I am truly thankful! Days have held order packaging, farm fresh eggs, tent happiness, coffee dates with the best,  postal fun, wild grape harvesting, and macaroon making! It has been a beautiful summer!! Challenges have come and been overcome by God’s grace and I am confident that God will give the strength needed for what lies ahead. He is always faithful! πŸ’—QUESTION!! What has been a highlight of your summer? Make my day complete by leaving me a comment below letting me know! ↓↓ And have a beautiful Friday! πŸ™‹πŸΌ

πŸ’πŸΌRandom fact for your Friday: believe it or not, mango peels are poisonous. 😬 Sadly one siblings has come down with  β€œmango itch” after indulging in a few mango peels! πŸ˜— How’s that for crazy?!! πŸ˜…πŸ˜‰

“Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,  Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
Hebrews 13:20-21

“For nit is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his ogood pleasure.”

Philippians 2:13

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. Amen!!! How faithful God is to strengthen us for all He calls us to do!

    Hard to think of just one thing that’s been great about this summer – I think my favorite has to be watching my little baby grow up! But there’s been so many other things, too!

    1. What a blessing to be able to watch your little girl grow!! Such a privilege!!! β˜ΊοΈπŸ’›πŸ’–πŸ’› Hope your Friday is fantastic Elisha. πŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ’•

  2. Wow! Thank you for sharing! Encouraging words and sweet photos. <3
    Those macaroons look delicious! And what a cheery little tent!
    I have been enjoying singing in a choir with my sisters. Our last performance is tonight. I love all the sunshine-even when it is hot and the times to create meals in the kitchen with homegrown veggies and fruits. :)

    Have a lovely Saturday!

    1. Ah!!! I hope the final performance is the best yet! How fun. πŸ˜„πŸ’• YES to the sunshine! Isn’t it just so nice to go out and enjoy it?!

      I hope your Saturday is truly blessed, Leah!! πŸ’–
