Oh YOU want 100% of my life LORD~~~

This season, I have heard in several ways that GOD wants ALL of me. I have always known that but it has come front and center, and with how the last years have gone, with the battles, warfare, and though so much GOOD has happened with the deliverance of actual demons, (yes I have been a Christian over 30 years), there is still "stuff" that is still clinging onto me. 
A teaching that has come forth has been giving ALL of oneself to the Lord, not just a percentage.  SOOOO this last couple of weeks I have been thinking ALOT and finally today, put those thoughts into action.  I got out a case of my books and took them to church.  I shared with the proper person, what I wanted to do, and if I had permission.
Church started and we started singing. I got a couple of books out and signed them with a word of encouragement to the person(s) it was intended for.  Before long Tim (not his real name), got a book and before long, called me up and prayed for me.  Well one of the first persons in whom I gave a signed book to, wanted to know how much they would cost, for they wanted more to buy for Christmas presents (wow).  I then was prayed for and after several minutes, returned to my seat.  I finished the service and gave books away as I planned. 
Now it was lunch time my sweet mom in law choose to take me and her son (my husband) out to eat. After we were done, we need to stop off at Costco to pick up some items. I grabbed a book, (in anticipation of giving it away), and we got inside and got into line for my order of photography. Before long there were several in line behind us. I just "decided" to give the woman behind me a signed book. So I asked her name and her permission to give her one. Before long we were communicating and as I handed it to her, she got emotional, and tears began to flow. I held/hugged her tightly and her adult kids were there as well and when she opened the book, it was to a page of butterflies and she started SOBBING. This lasted several minutes and when she could speak, she shared that her grandma had died, and her grandma loved butterflies.  Our encounter lasted about 10 minutes and many were aware of "something important" was happening.  I was next to be called, so as to pick up my order and then moved on. We came home and stopped at the corner market to get something to drink (I like Dr. Pepper). That store also sells my photography. Looking back, it's when I don't "think", well that seems to be when GOD does so much in me, through me.
So in conclusion, the sun is down, and the day is over. I have a new customer and the corner market, wants more cards to sell.
Lord I pray that I/WE will seek Your Kingdom first, Quit relying on my own understanding....... and to give YOU ALL of ourselves.  Here is a link to share some of what I do...............     SHALOM      https://www.etsy.com/shop/PhotographybyNicole
