It’s Monday Blog —Welcome, my Friends!!
I already know the answer to this question, but I’m asking it anyway:
Do you ever feel like you’re in a battle with yourself? Everyone I’ve spoken to about this, admits rather freely, they see themselves as their biggest problem in many situations.
Well, to be honest, I know this battle quite intimately.There were times when I considered a legal separation from my heart. My mind tells me one thing and my heart tells me another. One would think they’re not sharing the same machine (my body). Fortunately, God has His ways of doing things; however, He also allows us our free will—Sometimes I wish He didn’t do that…seriously!
I’ve wrestled with many issues in my life so far, and I amaze myself at the times I’ve bitten off way more than I could chew. See, the Lord has a way of humbling us when we flitter here ‘n there “fixing” this or that, as we see fit. We forget that this does not necessarily please Him. Now I’m not saying He is displeased when we work diligently and overcome obstacles, because I know this does please Him— we’re being responsible and using the tools we have, as we stay at it, honoring our responsibilities.
What I am saying though, is that when we truly have done all we can, and it’s not enough, rather than freaking out, turning on ourselves or others, He wants us to go to Him. This is how we show our love and respect for Him. This is when our faith in Him needs to rise above all else—Period. When we’re too good, too smart, too busy, too anything, to get down on our knees in prayer to Him, we are not loving Him properly—where’s the respect, the FAITH?
When we go rogue on ourselves and the rest of the world, like we have it all under control, He’s waiting patiently for us to Call A Truce – get our hearts and minds working together and call a friend…our lifeline…our Holy Father. Call on Him! He’ll never leave us, He’ll stay with us until we make peace with ourselves and then he’ll help us with our problems…big or small, he does it all. Man, God is so good!!
This week, should we need help, let’s ask for it. Let’s all strengthen our faith and walk with Jesus Christ, our Best Friend Forever! Amen.
God is Good! God is Great!! Always!!!
I love you,
Faith: a belief with strong conviction; complete trust, confidence, reliance or devotion.
