Kathy — Miracles are begun in grace and perfected in glory. They start with God’s supernatural enabling and come to complete manifestation through His intent and purpose and timing. As I wait on God, I shall continue to pray for miracles this Christmas season because the coming of the Christ is still in effect as well as God’s goodwill toward men. May His presence and power and purpose and timing change your life as His goodwill touches the earth again.
Your God-calling is as unique as you are. Your combination of giftings and temperament and personality and motivations and abilities and experience is unique. There can be many facets and phases to your calling and purpose in life. That’s why we need to seek first the kingdom. Living submitted to God’s authority, presence, grace and order is where we discover how to live in fulfillment, first daily and then a lifetime, thereby bringing glory to God.

KATHY GABLER brings an encouraging word in this 3min. audio file.
“He is putting gates in your fences.”
God has a plan and a path for each of us to walk out during the course of our life (Jer.29:11). Our Lord has put within each of us a personality, gifting and abilities that He has designed to use uniquely to His glory. They are expressive aspects of His image (Gen.1:26) and must, therefore, become very significant considerations in our growth and maturity development. Each of us are “wired” differently from the other (though from time to time we will come across others wired similarly to us). The “way we are wired” (personality, gifting, abilities) is the way He means for us to function effectively in that plan (Ps.139:13-18). It is possible for each of us to become disillusioned, discouraged or disappointed and stop short of walking that course in the manner He has “wired” us. It is possible for each of us to stop short of fulfilling that goal but we don’t have to… not at any point (Lam.3:23; Matt.24:13; 28:20; Jn.14:17; 2Tim.4:7).
