I am honestly struggling on what to write for you guys this week. I have so many things/topics I would like to write about and I am not sure which one to go with. The holidays are upon us and I could write this about how thankful we should be that God has given us all that he has, or about sin, are you praying enough, do you spend time reading in your bible, do you make business an excuse for not being as close to God as you should be.
I know that I could be more thankful, I could sin less, I could pray more, read my bible more, and not make excuses as to why I am not doing any of these things. I am not a perfect person . I’m just a girl trying to live my life for Jesus. I fail at this everyday, I could say more to my coworkers, I could make more quiet time for just me and God. This is where the excuses come in that I don’t have enough time for any of this. I do have enough time, I just choose not to.
As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “ You shall be holy, for I am holy.” 1 Peter 1: 14-16
Thankfully God is so merciful and forgiving because if he weren't, boy would we be in trouble. We should all be so thankful that he has such unbreakable love for us, that we humans crave so much, and he willingly gives it away. A kind of love that we do not deserve. A love so much bigger than us, that we cannot even comprehend. We have someone who loves us even when we fail. He knows everything about us, and still he loves us. Why wouldn’t we make time for someone like this. A love like this should make us want to spend more time with him, or more time telling everyone that we meet that we know someone who will love them no matter what.
This makes me take a step back and look at my life and what I can change to be closer and share more about his Love. Where I can be more thankful, sin less, pray more, read my bible more, and to not make excuses as to why I am so busy.
I want you guys to think about this. Go to him. He Loves you. Where can you change to spend more time with a God who loves you despite what you have done or will do.
Love you guys I am always praying for you.
For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:10
