The mornings are perfect for a cup of tea and a slice of friendship bread.
I have started adding white whole wheat flour to the starter in an attempt to make it a little healthier, and yesterday I replaced the oil with applesauce. It must have been a hit because there was only one loaf left this morning.
As I opened up God's word to let Him speak to me this morning I came across Zechariah 9:16-The LORD their God will save them in that day, as the flock of His people. For they shall be like the jewels of a crown, lifted like a banner over His land--Like the jewels of a crown.... I really don't think of myself as a crown jewel. Do you? I think a lot of things about myself but they tend to be rather negative. The idea of being a crown jewel has me considering who I belong to. I am a daughter of the King. Am I living like a daughter of the King?
My Father has a lot of work left to do in me. I hope each moment finds me more willing to be changed by Him into the woman He wants me to be. I have a lot of letting go to do of the woman I think I am in order for that to happen.
I recently heard a young woman say something to the effect of: "Don't mess with me because my Father rules the world." I admire her boldness, but more than that, she seems to have a very clear understanding of who she is in Christ. I need that knowledge to move from my head to my heart. To be more than words but the way I live my life.
