The House Yard Sale

I worked most of the day at Agape yesterday getting ready for our yard sale. We have a lot of furniture, clothes, odds and ends to sale today and tomorrow. It's been a lot of work and fun getting it all together with a team of people. We met last night for dinner and pulled a lot of it outside and started to price it and organize it. It came together pretty well, although at times, it seemed chaotic. We have a lot of children that run to and fro and that always adds to our adventures. When my son came and started to play basket ball in the middle of our yard sale project it got a little frustrating to tired adults!
Our entertainment was children pushing a man on my motorcycle down the road, and adults taking turns holding my grandson! And, of course every 30 seconds someone had to retrieve Fur Ball as he seemed to escape the house or yard.
This morning, as I replayed the evening in my mind and smiled about each person that God has placed in my life, I feel grateful for the family he has given me. This is a team of people that consistently show up in my life to love and support the calling God has placed on their hearts and mine. Not only that, but I have found that they are seeking truth as well, like me, so we are like minded.
I read in Ephesians again this morning which is what made me think of all of this, chapters 3 and 4. In chapter 3, verse 12:

When we trust in Him, we're free to say whatever needs to be said, bold to go wherever we need to go..."

Then chapter 4, verse 1:

....Walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called."

We all stand on the same ground before God, everyone of us. And, there's this amazing thing about that, God in all His beauty, loves each one of us so much that He gave Jesus to save us, to save me. And, because He did that, I have a Body of friends that I can call my family. If I am able to trust Him, I will be able to be free enough to say whatever He prompts me to say and bold enough to go wherever He tells me to go. And, through that process, I will live in a manner worthy of His calling. Even, in the chaotic yard sale moments, when basket balls are flying, or motorcycles are zooming by, Fur Ball is racing off. Life is chaotic, adventurous, and for me I guess it will be bazaar at times. This is the walk He has given me, I will trust Him.
Jesus, Say That Again, You will give me boldness, and freedom if I trust in You!
