“I feel like I have all the pieces in my puzzle but they’re just not coming together.” Have you ever felt like this? You know certain parts of your life whether your career or love life are before you and yet you do not have the power to fit these pieces together. No matter how much you pray or spend time with God, this onslaught of adversity refuses to leave. Well, my friends have you considered that a life void of adversity is not written in the books for anyone. Read my post about how I handle a dash of adversity sprinkled through my day.
I took a brief hiatus from my time on social for my A Meeting at the Well profile. In the time spent alone, the Holy Spirit taught me a few lessons, and helped me remember how strong I really am.
When was the last time you actually read the Bible? The last time God’s Word renewed your mind and transformed your way of thinking. God did not give us His Word simply for it to collect dust, and if you don’t read it. You are surely missing out on some hidden treasures!
Have you ever thought where did I ever go wrong? I followed the directions given to me word from word. I bubbled in the right answers. I passed every test and it still feels like I’am sinking in my adult life when I should be prospering. Not a great career or shaky finances. Jesus never promises life will be easy, yet He will give us clarity the minute, even us struggling twenty somethings, humble ourselves and ask for His help.
There are some people who cannot keep anything a secret. Even after the Mighty God told them to. The last thing we should do is expose our good deeds, when Jesus warns us to do good unto others for God’s glory. Are we secret keepers or consistent, glory hog whistle blowers?
Has your desperate prayers and questions to God ever passed unanswered? Being on the mountainside, and only hearing your echo plays tricks on the mind. We begin to wonder if God hears our prayers and concerns, when in fact God has never left us. Always remember the master is quiet, when the pupil takes his test. Take a read, and see if yourself, and whatever you do, don’t give up!
Heaven cannot come fast enough, especially when living on Earth is painful. But what can you do but be honest before God, and have late night conversations with the King? He is the answer.
Depression hits us where it hurts, especially when your job or marriage is not all what it is cracked up to be. Sometimes we place our hope in temporary, worldly things, which leads to disappointment. This is why we must remind ourselves as to why we are here on Earth. Remembering our one true purpose when our hopes are crushed.
I want a pure heart. A pure heart devoted to God, the willingness to abandon all desires, worries, and qualms for a lifelong pursuit of the one true King. However it is always the how…How do you get there? This post is simply a meditation and insights about a verse.
Are you fitful? Fussy and frustrated right now? Whenever we grow easily irritated and leaping from one worry to the next, then we must acknowledge God is no longer at the forefront of our lives. Replacing Him with idols ans false gods, we as Christians have to be careful to quickly submit our worries, so they do not absorb us. We are to be separate from the world not blending in.
