From the ashes of pain comes a heart renewed with God’s hands
We have all been encouraged through the faith (church, sermons, etc) to be givers. Sacrificially, completed, as He leads we should give what He asks. But is there anything more disappointing than giving the best gift you have to someone who is bad at receiving? Be a good receiver in Christ! No one should ever doubt any prayer/encouragement they offered you by your response (or lack of one). There have been times I have had to see what God is up against! I told Him once or twice “God I love you so much, but what the blast is wrong with the people here?!!!!”
If MY weakness were measured like a fuel tank on a car…MY tank is fullest when I am weakest, because God’s strength is fullest when I am emptiest (most unable to do it in MY own strength)!!
Everybody here has a passion. We cannot all fully pursue each other’s passions except when the Holy Spirit leads you to. WE MUST know (or learn) who we are in a vacuum (just you and He in the prayer closet peeps!). Meetings are just overflow!!! Do you remember when David tried to wear Saul’s armor? How did that work out? Had to scrap that metal!!! The Word is clear that we are all different functions in the Body…Hand is not foot, foot is not hand. The Body is strong when we all are affirmed at our function in it. I have personally witnessed it too many times…people who don’t totally know who they are in Him try to be a hand or foot because the strong leader is that…8 feet causes stumbling.
Compartments of the heart reveal…
energies- what creates fatigue in our life? too much of anything is draining, we are created for balance- emotional drama, heavy work schedule/load, high focus on entertainment, self-focused life and driven-ness…also overdoing it…maybe doing it in our own strength?
When life gets hard I try to remember that God has His plan and we don’t need to worry how hard life is, because He knows what He’s doing. He has a plan for us and He has it all figured out! No matter how hard, we can believe in Him-God has a plan, knows what we’re doing and what He will do for us.
From a 10 year old!! (Daddy is proud!)
The compartments of the heart reveal…
- mind/spirit matter- the stuff that runs through our mind and spirit affect the heart- that is why he wants us to focus on Him alone!
I have no choice but to be wholly thankful for being an American!
We may have serious problems going on at times, but look at the many countries that could be renamed Crapistan!
Everyday I am humbled by veterans who sacrificed so much. Have you ever noticed how some vets just seems ‘beat up by life’? They literally do that so that we can go to our jobs, feed our families, and live a life of some darn good freedom.
Every group of men and women who protect us whether FBI, police, firefighters, armed forces, governments national and local…many of you don’t get the proper thanks at your crazy jobs!
God would rather we know someone’s heart than their theology.
Of thrill seeking there is no end…except perhaps a bad one.
