Sourced Creatively

Be Encouraged! God is THE source of creativity, even in provision. While your job and your side hussle(s) are ways God provides for you, He is not bound by your those 2 ways to provide for you.

He provided using a ram in the thicket (Gen 22:13), Widow’s Oil (2 Kings 4:1-7), and a coin in the fish’s mouth (Matt 17:27) for example.

Point to ponder while you wander…“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:31-33 NKJV

Possibly Unaware

Sometimes we get hurt and the other person may be completely unaware that what they’ve done has hurt us. Choose to go talk to them. Face to face. Not easy, but definitely the right way to handle it, so says Jesus.

If another believer sins against you, go privately and point out the offense. If the other person listens and confesses it, you have won that person back.” Matthew 18:15 NLT

Talking about a person will never solve anything, nor will screaming at them or silently fuming. Talking WITH them, honestly and openly might. Choose to be the bigger person.

Point to ponder while you wander…if the other person is unwilling or unable to openly dialog, CHOOSE to forgive anyway and pray for them. This releases  them to God so you can move on. Unforgiveness hurts you, not them.
