The last couple weeks I've felt unglued all over. It seems nothing has gone the way I envisioned - I ended up getting called in to work when I had a migraine and the LAST thing I wanted to do was work; I let my tongue unleash harsh words at a friend; and my plans for dinner out with a friend were derailed by my husband working late. To top it off, the situation with my son and his teacher has not been resolved so I'm having to figure out what to do.
The enemy is telling me that I'm nothing special - I'm a horrible parent, disappointing friend, unloving wife, and untalented in every other area.
In "Unglued" Lysa TerKeurst says, "It is beautiful when the Master chisels. God doesn't allow the unglued moments of our lives to happen so we'll label ourselves and stay stuck. He allows the unglued moments to make us aware of the chiseling that needs to be done."
None of those labels from Satan are true. 2 Peter 2:9 tells me what it true of me - chosen, royal, holy, belonging, called for a purpose. God is using my unglued moments from the last couple weeks to show me that I hold too tightly to MY plans/expectations; that I desire "me time" more than I desire time with Him; and that I let me emotions dictate my reactions. He's chiseling away, cutting the unlovely off of me, and revealing His beautiful daughter. It hurts, this chiseling process, but it's necessary for me to become like His Son!!
