Too Big for Your Britches!

When I was 22 years old, I had a big problem with my dry cleaner. (Or so I thought.)

I was getting ready for work, one morning, when I pulled on a pair of my wool pants. They were about TWO INCHES too short!

“STUPID DRY CLEANER SHRUNK MY PANTS!!!”

So I grabbed another pair, then another. This is unbelievable! The dry cleaner had shrunk ALL my fall pants!

EVERY pair was too short but every jacket still fit. So, I started getting suspicious.

I pulled out a tape measure and marked my height on the wall. OMG!!! I had grown TWO whole inches!

Sometimes, we GROW when we don’t even know!

We don’t even realize how much we’ve grown in spiritual strength until something comes along to test us.

We’ve come further than we realize. We’ve covered more ground and retained more teaching than we give ourselves credit for.

We’re growing out of our spiritual pants (in a good way) because the God of the Angel Armies is at work on the inside of us, right now!

You might be thinking, “But I’m not THERE, yet. I haven’t arrived.”

Most of us aren’t where we want to be, yet. But we sure aren’t where we used to be! We just have to CELEBRATE our progress along the way!

    This is an on time peace. I had been praying to God to bring a change to the very toxic work environment that I was in. He answered my prayer but not in the way I was hoping for. Instead of bringing peace and unity to the group He removed me from the environment through a demotion and a loss of income. I am a single woman and have no Family that I can depend on. I spent a week waiting for the paralyzing, fear driven emotional breakdown that I usually experienced with such a devastating loss.
    But GOD has also delivered me from being paralyzed by fear an emotional instability. He replaced it with peace, clarity the assurance that he would take care of me and better thing were on the way.

    I thought my faith was strong until my granddaughter Ella moved in with us when she was unable to walk. I prayed and kept letting God in on the plans, a new test, new doctor, new physical therapy, new medication. Waiting for him to make a miracle in our “usual “ way. You don’t just wake up one morning and walk after not walking for 6 months. But more than not walking, Ella was in pain, her body would feel like it was on fire, or just hurt. She was taking pain pills every day.
    Then she went to the Healing Revival and walked. Like she said all she needed was Jesus.
