Hey…longtime no see LOL I went MIA for minute, huh? Sorry about that, life has been a bit hectic lately. But I’ve moved some things around and made room for others. Feeling good about where I am in my life. Feeling content.
I continue to put God first in everything that I do and he is sorting out some things for me. I will admit, I don’t always get it…it’s not always in black and white for me to totally understand it, but when it’s time…He reveals it and gives me the wisdom to understand it. I’ve learned to respect and appreciate the way God shows and teaches me things. There’s a process…like puzzle pieces that need to fit together. This process teaches me more and more about myself. Sometimes I like who I see in that process and sometimes I don’t! But I am grateful for it, because I need to see that person that I don’t like…so I can know what NOT to be. 2 Timothy 3:16 of the NIV says…All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.
This life I have is for me…and me alone. I will not compromise or conform myself for what others want, for self-pleasure, to be included/fit in, for conveinence or so I’m not alone . If it’s not right with God…then it’s not right for me. Galatians 6:4~Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. The world will have you really thinking that you can’t live your life the way God intends. Like it’s too hard, too demanding…I even had someone tell me it wasn’t realistic LOL. Really???
Has God shown you somethings about yourself and you not like yourself for a minute? LOL Don’t excuse it or get mad at someone about it…it’s alright, accept it. Acknowledge it. Answer to it…talk to God about it. Pray and ask him to remove it. Then don’t pick it back up again! Our flesh is weak…sooo you may have to struggle with it a bit, but keep bringing it to God….and I promise you it will get easier and easier. And through that process you will have learned something about yourself!
