S.H.M.I.L.Y Challenge Day 28–His Self-Image

From the beginning of the chapter, the author mentions that

God has a time for everything and He works in us what needs to be done to prepare us for what is ahead.   Having a sense of God’s timing brings the peace to wait on the Lord for it.

I couldn’t agree more.   I know from experiences that it is true.  We lived it in the past – multiples times – and more recently again with an opportunity for Rob to be involved in a ministry.  Opportunity that arrived out of the blue.  We definitively didn’t expect it.

But sometimes a person might be discourage when nothing opens for him or her.    Like it or not everyone will go through a midlife crisis whether it is a short one or a long one.  When we give priority to God, He leads us in every aspect of our life.   I could recall how many times He has helped Rob in programming, obtaining contracts, opening doors for business and ministry.  All we need to do it to trust Him even in the midst of discouraging times.

Lord, I pray that Rob will continue to find his identity in You.  Help him to understand how much he is important through Your eyes and by Your standards.  May he recognize the unique qualities You’ve placed in him and that he appreciate them.  May his true self-image be based on the image of Christ.  Amen.

Isaiah 60:1

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.

Tomorrow the chapter is covering his faith.
