There are times in my life when I feel so overwhelmed. I feel like there is a wave constantly washing over me and it is hard for me to come up for air. These times in my life are the times I do not trust in God and talk to him like I should. Why am I finding praying to my Lord so difficult? I know we used to be in a terrible place that did not allow me trust in him. I thought I was past that but I can’t bring myself to pray to him. I have this inner struggle with myself that is constantly putting me at war with myself. I am fighting the battle of searching and trying to find that peace within myself to trust in God and talk to him. I am wrestling with myself to just be his friend and let him be my savior.
God knows us better than we know ourselves. He is so amazing. Sometimes when I think about my life and how I have lived it, it has not always been for the glory of God. I have done some pretty dumb things in my short time on this earth. I am just so thankful that he is in control and that whenever I need him and need help he is there for me.
So basically I’m feeling pretty blessed today.
God Has passion For his People. For YOU. He will fight battles, slay enemies, shake prison cells, and break chains in order to make you completely His own.
So this quote was brought up in bible class tonight. This sounds like God is our Prince. If we think about any prince in any movie it sounds just like him. Prince Phillip in sleeping beauty, for example, searched and searched for Aurora. He battled the dragon and fought to find her. God is doing the same for us everyday. He is fighting for us. His passion and devotion for you and me is more than we will ever deserve. It is an honor to serve such a God. Never have a doubt in your mind that you are not good enough for God. You are. Every blessing you have is proof. Sending his son to die for us is all the proof we need. God is incredible and I am so happy to serve such a wonderful God that treats me like a princess.
1 Thessalonians 4: 3-8
So we read this today in class. GOD has given us a spirit of holiness… wow. That is a lot to take in. What God wants from us to live up to a certain standard. It is so wonderful to think and to know that God has made me holy. Only through him and because of him can I be holy God is too good to me. I am so glad he give me the strength that I need to obtain the holiness that he has intended for my life.
So I love Audrey and I think that this quote is something to really think about. We are NEVER alone. God is always walking with us. On our own we are clumsy and unsure, but with God we can walk through life with the poise and grace that he so willingly gives. Every minute of everyday he is there for us. The comfort in that is overwhelming at times.
