The greatest lesson God has taught me was a threefold lesson in listening, obeying and trusting Him.

God had for some time trying to tell me I was in a place where he did not want me to be, but I kept ignoring his small still voice for some years until it became a total conviction that I wasn't where he wanted me to be. Once I realised this I had to make a choice to either obey him or to keep living in disobedience. To obey him I had to withdraw from a committment I had made and really felt that I was going to let many people down, this was where step three came into being. TRUST me, God said. I did trust him, stepped out in Faith & obedience and those involved were incredibly understanding even though they couldn't really understand my reasoning for leaving. BUT the best part was yet to come.

Out of my eventual obedience came incredible blessing, beyond what I could ever had imagined. Within a month of leaving Music Hall Sal invited me to be a part of the Scrap Of Faith Design team AND I had 3 of my altered tins accepted for publishing in Handmade magazine.

The above LO celebrates my journey of Listening, obeience and trust and YES great blessings. So really this was a fourfold lesson. The verse that came to me again and again through all of this journey was "Be still and Know I am God" Psalm 46:10a.

The OTP project for this month is a memory box to store those little life lessons that God loves to share with us.This box is lined inside and has a felt base and decorated cards waiting for those lessons to be written up.
