“WHY ME?? WHY NOW??”

Basically,

There are a lot of good things happening in my life right now and I’m thankful.

I’ll share more details when it’s time to but for now; this is how I’ve been feeling.IMG_1783.JPG

I’ve been so confused as to “why me?”

I’ve been asking God; “why this sinner?”

I’ve been asking way too many unnecessary questions but God being the lover He is, has been answering every single one of them.

Last night, I almost went to bed without reading my Bible but God, oh my Lord, loves me so much and he nudged me to read it.

There is POWER in the Word of God so pick it uppppp!

Anyway, I opened my Bible and was flipping pages for a bit. Went to 1 Corinthians 13 to read over that, flipped past Matthew to check if I had finished that and I was just all over the place for a couple of minutes.

I finally ended up in Romans and God spoke ever so clearly to me as soon as I began to read. His Word says :


“Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. (‭Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭2‬ NLT)”


Because of our faith…
Because of my faith…
Accept it, you’ve been faithful and now Christ has brought you to a place of UNDESERVED privilege.
So be happy about it.

I am forever grateful and thankful for these privileges and I finally understand why all these things are happening (to a certain extent)

Keep God first in all you do. Worship him in truth!! (Don’t just sing the songs; WORSHIP HIM)

So I got my answer, it’s time for me to stop asking why, continue serving and MOVE. Enjoy the blessings. It’s ok to be blessed.

For a bit more context read Romans 5:1-11!!

Here’s the link to a relevant worship song:

Worried about all the WRONG THINGS (VOTD)

As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to Jerusalem, they came to a certain village where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.” But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.” (‭Luke‬ ‭10‬:‭38-42‬ NLT)

P.S. @ my title- not that you should worry at all!

Don’t ever be afraid to read the whole chapter, you never know what God wants to tell you.

Pursue Her or Pursue Him?

Ladies,

Let’s talk.

So God commands guys to pursue us, but most of the time WE DONT EVEN GIVE THEM ROOM FOR THE CHASE.

We really need to chill.

I know, i know, i understand you like him and want him to know that; but do things the right way.

It’s not “old school”, it’s the way God planned it to be and his plans are perfect.

Let the guys breathe.

It’s ok to JUST BE FRIENDS.

Don’t worry.

God’s got you.

And if he is the one; God will prompt him to pursue you!

Trust in the Lord above all else!!!

Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭31‬:‭30‬ NLT)

GET CONNECTED!!

Honestly,

IMG_1163.JPG if you want a better relationship with the Lord, you really have to plug yourself in.

 

Find a christian group where you fit in and become surrounded by the right people!!

It really matters…

Don’t just be a “church goer”, get involved in that COMMUNITY.

I recently joined my schools’ christian fellowship and I love it already. Being surrounded by christians is very important when you’re growing in Christ.

Surround yourself with light and you will become light!!

I’m yelling at you, yes you, GET PLUGGED IN!

Christian groups etc. may seem freaky but they really aren’t, they are so fun. Promise me that you’ll get connected?

 

 

All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it. (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭12‬:‭27‬ NLT)

VOTD!! 9/2/14

Keep yourself in check!

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’ “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’ (‭Matthew‬ ‭25‬:‭34-40‬ NLT)

Pick your head up and keep going..

If you ever happen to back slide, don’t let it shake you/ your faith.

Stand strong on the Word.

Use that as an opportunity to grow closer to God.

He still loves you, so keep your head up.

Pray that you are forgiven and work harder so that next time you can stand the temptation.

I mean, even Jesus was tempted, but He knew the Word of God well enough to withstand the temptation.

“Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. (‭Matthew‬ ‭7‬:‭25‬ NLT)”

Matthew 4:1-7
