I posted a picture on Facebook the other day…
I had a really hard time learning that the devil wants to take away our forward movement. So I would make a mistake and stay down until I felt better, or I was sure god had forgiven me. But… GOD forgives instantly when we repent. The devil intends for us to stay down and stop doing the good works God has for us to do.
And for me, it was really hard to feel stuck and yet keep on moving forward with God’s plans. So I am posting a picture blog, if you will today, all about momentum. To remind me and you that we just need to keep getting back up and moving forward. Or even picking up and starting over – which is where I feel like I am right now…
I LOVE THIS ONE – NONSENSE.
FOR SURE… A TOTAL LOSS OF PERSPECTIVE. LIKE BEING TOSSED ABOUT BY A WAVE AND NOT KNOWING WHICH DIRECTION IS UP. IF YOU’RE HERE, CRY OUT TO JESUS FOR HELP!
LIKE MY LAST BLOG ABOUT TIME WITH JESUS MAKING US GLOW WITH HIS GLORY. AND IT JUST KEEPS ON BUILDING AND BUILDING.
SO, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO, BESIDES REPENT? ARE YOU GOING TO READ DAILY? ARE YOU GOING TO SPEND MORE TIME IN PRAYER? ARE YOU TANGIBLY GOING TO SHOW GOD’S LOVE TO SOMEONE? WRITE IT DOWN AND FOLLOW YOUR CHECK LIST. WORSHIP REALLY HELPS AS WELL. IT STARTS ME OFF IN THE RIGHT FRAME OF MIND AND GETS ME TALKING WITH GOD. AFTER ALL, HE INHABITS OUR PRAISES, SO HE IS PRESENT. TALK ABOUT A RIGHT PERSPECTIVE!
SO, NO MATTER HOW FAST YOUR FRIEND IS GOING. KEEPING UP WITH THE JONSES IS NOT ONE OF OUR GOALS! NO MATTER HOW FAR BEHIND YOU THINK YOU ARE, IF YOU’RE GOING TOWARDS GOD, YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING. GOD UNDERSTANDS WE ARE ALL NOT SPEEDY GONZALES LIKE ME. HE UNDERSTANDS THAT SOME PEOPLE TAKE MORE TIME AND COAXING. BUT THAT’S HIS JOB. HIS WORK. JUST KNOW THAT HE WILL COMPLETE IT. (PHILIPPIANS 1:6)
HAVE A MARVELOUS DAY, LADIES!
