A Lesson from an Imperfect Person: Treasure It All

We tend to waste our time and energy on issues wouldn't matter. We allow great people and opportunities to slip through our grasp. But instead of learning what needed to be discovered we like to cover up mistakes with guilt, fear, anger, and regret.

I want to be different. I want you to be different. No more guilt, fear, anger, or regret because they do not come from Christ. Instead, when we realize why we made the mistakes we did or why God is having us go through the seasons we're in, let's replace guilt with gratitude. Replace fear with faith. Replace anger with patience. Replace regret with wisdom.

Slayin' & Slayed

Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him. He also shall be my salvation, For a hypocrite could not come before Him.

- Job 13: 15 (CSB)

[It is] integrity and faith (not works and actions) [that] pleases the Lord even in the midst of storms.

God doesn't need people to speak for him, he chooses to have his Word and his love vocalized through his servants. He's God, he knows what he's doing better than any of us will ever comprehend. Ask your artist what He's painting on the canvas of your life.

[…]No level of work, sacrifice, holiness, or anything you do will exempt you from being tried in your walk with Christ.

[…]You don't owe people an explanation, and you don't owe people jack when it comes to why you do things the way you do or what God is doing in your life.

Is My Jesus That Different?

I've been asking God, "if we're all believers of Christ and we all love you, then why are we struggling to fellowship together?"

why do other believers pull away from my joyful and passionate self? Is my perspective demeaning to others and their faith?

I don’t think that being unequally yoked is as black and white as we make it seem. I used to see this phrase as “do not get in an intimate relationship with those who aren’t believers.” But it’s deeper than that just like everything is when it comes to Christ.

Bonus #8: Do their actions and words match up with the two important messages of the Word of God?

Love, You Were Born With It

God created the core of who we are. Everything that makes us well...us is because God placed all that in us. So when we face trials, when we feel hurt, when we get upset, and we feel like we are at our ends, there's honestly nothing left but love.

 

All that I am is love because Christ is love. All that I have is love because Jesus is all I've got. All that I know and can feel is love because Spirit of God that dwells in all of us is all we've known and feel. So next time when you want to act a type of way or give your two cents (no one really needs those cents anyways, it's not like it's got all that value) remember who you are and whos you are. 

 

You and I were never created to be hurtful towards one another. No, God created us to love each other, love ourselves, and love him. Love is the essence of who we are. You don't need to change that much about yourself to know that you are nothing but love and that's all you got.

Opposite Day All Day!

To follow Christ means to go opposite of what your flesh and the world says. It's easier to treat those you love well and those who hurt you the same way, but you don't get to do that anymore as a Child of God. You must choose to love. You must decide to care more. You must make the decision to forgive. You must validate others just because they are valuable to God.

Next time when you want to say something, feel some type of way, or do anything, think and ask yourself this very question I ask myself: is what I'm saying, feeling, or doing in alignment with the Spirit of God? If the answer is no, then it's time to check yourself.
