Philippians 1:6

"He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it." As my church family sat silently, listening to a beautiful rendition of the song, "Be still and know", I sat with head bowed, eyes closed, talking to my Lord. My heart was a little heavy because two dear friends of mine, a married couple, are having some marrital problems and I've been doing all I can to help them through it but feeling like a bumbling fool. I want so badly to help them but I know that the best I can do is love them through it and pray with all my heart. So that's what I was doing, I was praying for them and asking God to give me wisdom and strength, and I heard a voice, clear as day- as though someone was sitting beside me speaking in my ear,

"He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it."

I've heard the verse before but never really gave it much thought to be honest, but today it touched my spirit in such a powerful way. It brought me to my knees and I started crying. I know in my heart, deep down to my core, that God is working in me, molding me with His very hands (imagine the hands of GOD Himself, caring enough about me to begin a good work in me!) making me into the woman He wants me to be. Making me into a usable vessel, a person He can use to reach the lost and hurting people. What a beautiful promise!


  1. Beautiful indeed! I know for me when God uses me in situations or in others lives I find it hard to believe that He uses me to do His will! Most times then not it's more of a teaching for me than the other that's receiving it. I will be praying for these two couples with you!

    Lord, continue to do a good work in Danielle. Mold and make her into Your image. Allow her to trust fully in You and in Your will. Allow her to be there for her friends, to be that example in what marriage looks like. Open her eyes to what it is Your needed her to do. Thank You Lord for answering our cries and prayers! Thank You for Your Son and the sacrifice He gave. In His name I pray, AMEN!

  2. Thank you for your prayers Hollie, they're the greatest gift we believers can give each other.
