Don’t let your intellect neutralize your faith.
Walk with Christ…
I’m at that point in my life where I’m just doing things. I know where God wants me to be and some i’m terrified of and others i’m not ready for and I keep doing a bunch of little things to get me there but it’s not enough. There’s this hunger and burning desire inside of me but i’m too busy or just lazy to fill it. I know God’s mercies and love are new every morning but I need to be more proactive with my walk. I can’t and shouldn’t go a day without talking to him- not talking AT him. Talking TO him, WITH him. Waiting to listen but I do and that’s not how a relationship should be.
Please give me the grace to fix it God.
“He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.” “The desire of righteous will be granted” [Proverbs 10:24 NKJV].
“The prayer of the upright is His delight” [Proverbs 15:8 NKJV].
“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in your, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” [John 15:7 NKJV].
It takes faith to see the opportunities, and courage to overcome the obstacles.
Faith says, in spite of what I see, in spite of what I hear, in spite of what I feel, in spite of what I taste, in spite of what I smell, I believe everything’s going to be all right because God is with me.
Trust in the Lord with all Your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways submit to Him and He will make your paths straight.
Power Over Sin
I was reading Romans because our pastor suggested that we read 10 chapters a day and I tried and I learned on central theme from the first ten chapters, FAITH. All you need is faith, believe in God, believe in His existence, believe in His love and be slaves to him and not sin. By slave I don’t mean it in the “worldly” sense it’s just when Christ died we were redeemed from sin and a lot of us still struggle with it, which is okay- we are human but the thing is we’ve been given victory over it and we need to realize that. Sin doesn’t have to be inevitable, it doesn’t have to be something that just happens we can have the spirit guide us and become righteous- the way God wants us to be. We can’t just say “i’m human i’m going to sin”. No God has higher standards and expectations for us past that and we need to act accordingly. Believe in Him, ask for less and less of your worldly being or your human desires and ask for more and more of His spirit in you and receive the grace to overcome sin. The wages of sin is death and we cannot continue to sin and just hope His grace will abound. Ignorance is not bliss because He has told you where the answers are so seek His face, read his word and you’ll be on the right path.
I hate that feeling of insecurity that comes with relationships or really anything you do. That gray area that you just have to leave as is and hope everything works out and works out beautifully, hate not knowing and sometimes not being able to control. I know there are things in life that you need to let run it’s course but it blows. I hate the amount of power the other person has or the “universe” has or chance. I just wish I could know everything sometimes, see everything, understand everything, control and manipulate everything.
But I can’t and I realize that’s where faith comes in, in yourself, in God, in your relationship. I know that I need to let go and let things just happen the way they are meant to sometimes because sometimes your best plans might be the wrong path for you.
Obey God by stepping out in faith. He will give you the resources to do His work.
This is the state of mind I’m trying to be in…
Faith connects our weakness to God’s strength.
Well I guess it would be nice, if I could touch your body, I know not everybody has got a body like you. Baby!
Haha. Never gets old
