I've been calling my customers and team members, encouraging some, sending online agreements to others, showing products at the hair salon, delivering samples and dropping off recruitment packets. And this busy day is by no means over! I'll make Steve's dinner and go lead my Vacation Bible School crew for our finale night, and prepare for: Muffins & Makeovers at 9:00 tomorrow morning, followed by a Pink Pedicure party at 11:00; a Virtual Makeover, and a Botanical skincare party tomorrow afternoon in Corona, all before the clock stops at midnight in Dallas, Texas, where our corporation is located!.
I listened to an inspirational recorded message this morning about the hard work we put in while trusting the LORD to miraculaously bring the answers to our prayers that HE has decided upon, and in the timing HE has decided upon. Before the "Million $ Messenger" Callie prayed for all of us, she recounted the story of Joshua's prayer in Joshua 10:12-15:
Then Joshua spoke to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of all Israel:
Sun, stand still over Gibeon;
And Moon, in the Valley of
So the sun stood still,
And the moon stopped,
Till the people had revenge
Upon their enemies.
...So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. And there has been no day like that, before or after, that the LORD heeded the voice of a man; for the LORD fought for Israel.
Then Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to the camp at Gilgal.
The point our speaker made was that yes, God made the sun stand still--we know and fully believe that God who created the universe can bring the entire creation to a halt if He chooses! And He will put an end to it one day, when He creates a new heaven and a new earth (Revelation 21:1). The sun stood still, and it hasn't happened since. But did Joshua stand and wait for God to knock their enemies dead? No! His forces fought and won the victory! And verse 15 tells us, that after hard fighting, Joshua led his forces back to the camp at Gilgal, about 25 miles.
Nuff said? We ladies are working and praying hard today, not neglecting our families, ministries, or other work the Lord has laid out for us, but giving our best effort, and leaving the result to God.
