Tea Talk-Trust


I'm having water because I need to show off my new water bottle. No mug this week. I saw this bottle and had to have it. I'm always looking for a good water bottle and have found one or two that I liked but I 've never been totally sold on.
I purchased this one with two close friends in a 3 pack at Costco. We were all excited because they looked cool. But we got even more excited when we realized that they wouldn't leak and the top had a clip on so that we could clip the bottle to our bags. I highly recommend this water bottle.

I'm feeling loved, my friend Andrea gave me the prettiest flower poesy from in(courage).

The verse referenced on it is Ephesians 1:18 - I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints. A beautiful gift, from a beautiful friend.

On my mind right now is how its funny when God wants us to teach us something everything we read seems to coincide with this. As I've mentioned before, my "Bible Babes" and I are doing Kelly Minter's study "No Other Gods" which is about turning from our idols and focusing our trust on God. I'm also reading Beth Moore's "Get Out of That Pit" about removing ourselves from the pits we've fallen into by trusting God. I've also started this week on a personal study of Esther through the coffee cup Bible studies by Sandra Glahn (Espresso with Esther - have to love anything that has coffee in the title) . This week she had us read all of Esther. What struck me- Esther trusted God enough to go to the King even though "If I perish, I perish." (Esther 4:16b). Notice the correlation. Trust. God is right now teaching me to lean on Him and trust Him to provide for me, guide me and protect me.

I'm going to leave you with the words from my poesy:
I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints.
Go and share your Tea Talk with Ruth at Celebrate Friendship for more uplifting friends.

Lovely post, Michelle. thanks for joining this week's Tea Talk. That water bottle is perfect for the heat wave we have here!

I know of someone who avoids reading "hard books" because she knows she'll be tested after reading it. As for me, I do believe that God's grace abounds in every lesson we are in and He's not a sadist to teach us hard lessons we don't need. And I have to constantly remind myself of this.

Thanks for sharing those beautiful words from your poesy.
