I have far too many thoughts in my head right now to just pick one, sooooo……I’LL BRIEFLY PUT ALL OF THEM IN ONE BLOG 😉
First topic: Waiting
Why is it so hard to wait for things God has promised? Why do we get so frustrated and start doubting? Why do we act like God will change His mind?…..I said “we”, because I’ve been there and I’m still working to do better.
First, off God will not say anything and then decide to change His mind, as if He’s saying “Oops, made a mistake!” NOT MY GOD! (Isaiah 55:11)
Second, we wait on God, instead of IN God. Waiting IN God, taps into His peace and grace to pass the time.(2 Cor 12:9)
Lastly, KNOW THE GOD YOU SERVE. He is ALPHA AND OMEGA. He has written your story and planned it out perfectly, in the beginning of time. (Psalm 139:16)
Wait, patiently and don’t doubt. God is the beginning and the end, meaning the story is written in completion, meaning…..YOU ALREADY HAVE IT! IT’S ALREADY YOURS! NO WORRIES!!
Second topic: Addiction
Transparency Time: I struggle with an addiction, expressing my way out publicly, hopefully will help bring healing and deliverance to someone else.
It wasn’t until recently that I realized that a lot of the times we aren’t delivered from our struggles, because we make it personal instead of it being about God..”What do you mean?”
We selfishly want to be delivered, because we’re scared of what will happen to us, what people may think, etc. Instead, of wanting to be delivered, because we want an authentic relationship with God. When your desires shift from selfishly wanting to be delivered vs wanting it, because you crave intimacy with God; then and only then will you be delivered(James 4:7). You need to desire God and want God, doing it for your own reasons will only be temporary and you will continue to struggle with an on-going addiction. The devil can only entice you with things you desire.
Last topic: Humor
PLEASE PEOPLE OF GOD SMILE AND LAUGH MORE!!! Stop walking around with that “deep worship face” (some of you know what I mean 😉 ) Smile! You’ll be a better witness of God, if you simply smile more (Psalm 126:2)
