I’m currently being tested, of my faith & loyalty. It’s a tough time because it’s time to show God what I’m made of, that I can truly apply all that I know to my life.
I almost fell for all the traps many times these past few weeks, there is sooo much noise from everywhere! Which causes me to be down and aggravated because I just want to get past this, it’s all too much. Everything around me is overwhelming me and stressing me out, but I know He wants me to find peace in Him. It’s not easy because that’s not what the flesh wants. We give into our feelings and end up getting caught up in them more than in God. That’s my biggest downfall.
None of you can add any time to your life by worrying about it. And if you can’t do the little things, why worry about the big things? “Think about how the wildflowers grow. They don’t work or make clothes for themselves. But I tell you that even Solomon, the great and rich king, was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers. If God makes what grows in the field so beautiful, what do you think he will do for you? That’s just grass—one day it’s alive, and the next day someone throws it into a fire. But God cares enough to make it beautiful. Surely he will do much more for you. Your faith is so small! (Luke 12:25-28 ERV)
Worry takes away your joy, but a kind word makes you happy. (Proverbs 12:25 ERV)
3:23am – Can’t sleep. I posted one bible verse on Instagram & my brother in law went on a rampage again about being an atheist (thinking he’s being wise by trying to show me the “truth.” Obviously because I must’ve intimidated him somehow) …
I feel so overwhelmed as of last night. I watched Exodus and even though it was a bit different from the bible (I just started reading Exodus last week – Im new to the old testament when it comes to stories,) luckily my husband knows a lot but seeing the bible come to life on the screen had me thinking and commenting during the movie:
GOD IS THE single BEST THING I HAVE IN MY LIFE, FOREVER AND EVER.
I don’t know even know how to describe how I’m feeling, I guess overwhelmed is the word because I just want to be with God like right this second! I don’t even know what to say!!
You will not have to do anything but stay calm. The Lord will do the fighting for you.
I’m currently reading Exodus because I decided I wanna read the book before seeing the movie (cliché, but good motivation to finally read the bible like I’ve been meaning to) and I ran into a little verse I love. It was sort of a reminder, something we need to remember in our daily lives when we run into things that seem out of our control. I’m currently very still and enjoying my journey in getting to know God and his word. So glad to be here! My favorite place so far. The peace & joy I’ve been experiencing is unexplainable. God is too good!
Have a great night guys! Don’t forget God in the midst of all the partying and planning for NYE.
Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.
I don’t know about you guys but this made me feel better about working. People are difficult, but God puts joy in the smallest, most tedious things!I believe we just have to do our part & ask that things run smoothly. It always works for me👍
Hope everyone’s having a great Monday!💛
Do you know where your fights and arguments come from? They come from the selfish desires that make war inside you. You want things, but you don’t get them. So you kill and are jealous of others. But you still cannot get what you want. So you argue and fight. You don’t get what you want because you don’t ask God. Or when you ask, you don’t receive anything, because the reason you ask is wrong. You only want to use it for your own pleasure. You people are not faithful to God! You should know that loving what the world has is the same as hating God. So anyone who wants to be friends with this evil world becomes God’s enemy. Do you think the Scriptures mean nothing? The Scriptures say, “The Spirit God made to live in us wants us only for himself.” But the kindness God shows is greater. As the Scripture says, “God is against the proud, but he is kind to the humble.” So give yourselves to God. Stand against the devil, and he will run away from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. You are sinners, so clean sin out of your lives. You are trying to follow God and the world at the same time. Make your thinking pure. Be sad, be sorry, and cry! Change your laughter into crying. Change your joy into sadness.
-James 4:1-9 ERV❤️
Through my daily experiences I see that people pick what they think is “right” and live by that. Right in quotations because everyone lives by their own morals and don’t lean on the bible for guidance and what is equally right.
I was in the world. I know what it’s like. I was so blinded for so long on what is right, and now what some might call “radical”, to a believer, is called a Holy life by God’s ways. And I love it. I feel clean, happy, (more) protected in every sense and just overall GOOD. That’s the power of God’s joy that I never knew about, and that many might never know because they simply don’t get themselves there. That makes me SO sad! My own family might never get there. As many other worldly people.
The bible is the truth.
It is guidance.
It is life and I won’t ever be dragged back to my ways.
Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
