We know we’re
#GrowingUp when we find we WANT what we NEED ….
Learning to love sacrificially … necessarily entails some sacrifices. 😉
When the Lord writes your story, you know the ending’s gonna be GOOD….
Not so much “new” me as “real” me 😉
if ur right, and this is the Lord’s promise to you, then u won’t have to walk in disobedience to obtain it.
walking by faith ¬ by sight means exactly what it sounds like it means ~ u won’t be able 2SEE the guaranteed desired outcome. only Trust.
doing right (obeying God) doesn’t always bring “happiness” as we usually mean it – but it DOES lead 2PEACE, &true happiness follows peace.
u can be making all the right decisions &still be tempted 2despair; doing right doesn’t always lead 2″happiness” – but happiness IS a GIFT.
one day at a time, live with eternity in view, trusting what God SAYS even when (ESPECIALLY when) ur feelings don’t line up
somtimes LEADING ur feelings vs being LED by ur feelngs means u will hv 2CHOOSE (&find ways) 2endure days that tempt u 2feel like giving up!
trusting God 4deliverance today MAY reveal heart idol of desiring comfort/ease this side of heavn. do u trust 4tomorrow even if today=pain?
relatively easy to walk by “faith” if our lives haven’t faced real struggle. much more difficult to understand God’s grace through pain.
do u think….perhaps what we WANT is of such great importance, that we can NOT speak of it…cuz the wanting of it is itself so fragile….
have i swung from 1 extreme 2the other? from uber legalist (pharisee) 2mega theological liberal? No. But i might finally love GRACE ovr law.
oh yes, call evil “EVIL” &seek justice where necessary ~ BUT our scoffing tone belies our inability 2see the wickednesses of our own hearts.
QUICK2make someone who’s guilty of some evil thing so VERY different from us (!) that we couldnt possibly see our way 2falling like they hv.
I’v found far many more things ought 2b held in my “open hand” rather than my “closed fist” ~ There r “load bearing walls” &walls that move.
