I Find that if I submit myself to the thoughts and whims of others (and their input) I no longer can submit myself to God and his input. I so long for him to be the potter and me be the clay. I have tried being open-minded and I do listen to others thoughts and input, however my mind is pointed at God saying “give me the mind of Christ.” I know sometimes others perceive me as being close minded but this is not the case. I spent years listening to the input of others (taking it to heart) and in that portion of my journey completely lost who I was. I want to please people and have them love me, but being a people pleaser has always gotten me in trouble. I can remember when “the enemy” even used my servant attitude toward God against me and ran me ragged until I had little or no time to develop my relationship with God. in the end I will stand before him, not a throng of people who say I was too much this way or too much that way. It’s God who will judge me (Ultimately) so it is him I seek for advice.

God has called me to share and help build up the Body Of Christ by sharing testimonies and revelations imparted to me by him. I have written three main books (at this time) Grace to the Rescue, Grace to Grow and Grace to Soar. These books are some highlights of my journey and treasures God put in my heart during some very difficult times. If I could sum up my life in two sentences it would be "No excuse to not overcome" And "No matter what has happened, God is with you! The theme of my life and heart is this; YOUR relationship with God is everything, and should be maintained at any price." It's your pearl. My heart is to see God rescue your soul, from whatever keeps you from being close to him. If it's relationships that are bad (so bad you cannot function) he wants to deliver you. He truly did come to make the captives free. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org View all posts by Laura Grace
