There were times when I almost gave up and I've cried and said Lord it's too much. El Shaddai , He was there all the time by his grace he is keeping me alive - Here I am
Some people are self- motivated, and some feed off motivation from others. I choose to surround myself in this time of my life with individuals who are growing in the word of God. Those who are on a level higher than myself, successfully where they need to be and content. It only allows me as a woman who at times battles her walk, motivate me to continue the path that I need to be in.
If you've been a consistent reader of my blogs, you understand that I express the love I have for Christ, the battles that any human being face who desires to grow closer on their spiritual walk. I believe that when God wants you to listen to him, he will do anything in his power to get your full attention. " Trust the Lord with all your heart, and don't depend on your own understanding" ; " Don't depend on your own wisdom. Respect the Lord and refuse to do wrong, then your body will be healthy, and your bones will be strong."- Book of Proverbs.
Recently, I found out some amazing news, thrilled to know that the desires of one person came true. It made me recognize how powerful God is when you are obedient in his word, I understand and respect that many people I know, might have different beliefs, I understand that many people I know might take the time to judge those who are sinners like themselves. I understand many people I know, may not even be interested on where their life is presently at, or going. But the power of Jesus Christ, is power of all powers. For this I believe.
" Nothing compared with the greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Because of him, I have lost all those THINGS- ( social status, materialistic things, people not fit in your life, etc any desire of flesh) and now I know they are worthless . This allows me to have Christ and to belong to him. " -Book of Philippians
Higher is where I continue to reach, I understand my light will not shine on people until I need to be where I'm chosen.
People in your life at times might not even really know you, and dislike you. Being misunderstood , possibly making accusations, assumptions on your character, when it has sincerely been presented to them, makes you recognize that true fools do exist in the world. " Fools will believe anything, but the wise think about what they do" , fools are rewarded with nothing but foolishness, but the wise are rewarded with knowledge." - Book of Proverbs. I now take notice that the bible also reads " Stay away from fools, because they cant teach you anything.- Proverbs 14: 7. Some Friends May ruin you, but a real friend will be more loyal than a brother - Proverbs 18:24.
Personally for me, being accountable of my past, and the things that I stubbornly didn't do as a person, allowed me to only feel convicted of what I need to do, but with no action.This has made me concerned on why my growth hasn't been fully fulfilled. The fact remains, that whoever chooses to walk in the path to benefit their future bright, will seek Higher.
Peace and Love
