Lessons come from all directions…. and sometimes from out of the blue!
I have watched the Disney movie Aladdin several times over. However…. it has been quite sometime since I saw it last.
Tucked away in my mind…. but brought forth by Holy Spirit….in a time I was in need of some comfort ….was the scene with Aladdin …. sitting on the magic carpet…. extending his
hand to Jasmine…. with the words…. Do You Trust Me?
I know that was what God was asking me …. personally….. for the days …. weeks… months to come.
What else can you do when He speaks to you and you KNOW it was Him?
Take a deep breath…. let it out…. and receive the peace that follows… knowing … HE has your back!
Proverbs 3:5-6 Amp
Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge
Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.
Pasta…. left alone will conform itself to its surroundings.
Our Minds… Left idle…. will conform itself to its surroundings…
We need to continue to renew our minds with the Oil of the Word… To make sure we are broken away from conformity.
Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
