Thankful Life - May 21, 2014

Oh LORD, I seek You... Father, come in - I know it's messy and in disarray at times, but YOU are welcome. Show me how not to hide, how to exude You. Help me know that You are in Your dwelling place, my Tabernacle... Your Temple... Let the doors of this tent fly wide open and let me know YOUR presence in this place. Remove the mess LORD, as I follow and love through obedience. Correct me. Let me see Your blessings. Let me know Your daily and moment to moment mercies. Let me grow in Christ... and be more and more like Jesus through every moment of growth. Let Your light shine, and my light that is YOU be seen to others.

Help me LORD to know that this mountain before me, or this climb ahead of me will be strengthened and fortified by Your promises and hope. Thank You mighty and faithful God for loving me so much. thank YOU Father for never leaving me, and pursuing me, even in my mess, and among my messiness. I love You Abba Father and cannot imagine this life without You. In the name of Christ Jesus, let me LIVE rightly and wholly as Yours. Amen.

I want to encourage you to seek Him diligently. In the midst of sorrow and turmoil, He is waiting. In the circumstance that seems hopeless, He is waiting. In the times when you don't see an out, He is waiting.

He is waiting. He pursues You throughout your life, and delivers salvation unconditionally, and free to you. Will you meet Him as He waits?

Often times, we worry needlessly... we allow the enemy, habit or our past dictate our worry barometer... We truly need to live today - allow our past to help us make better decisions, while today gives us permission to let go of the past. Jesus is our NOW - not the abuse, not the illness, not a failed relationship, not the abuse you have gone through... it is not dismissing those things or you, but negating who they came from. You are not alone. Allow God to heal and take what is not edifying to Christ or encouraging scripturally. He will take it all, and leave you with hope, but you have to let Him have it. Let us not keep picking up the past, the hurt, the heartache, BUT HANG ON TO HIS PROMISES.

When we allow our past to become our present, we dismiss all of what God has for us. Let today be the day you allow the ashes of the past to become beauty of His victory on the cross for you. Healing comes when we let go of our own beliefs about our life... and who we are AND hang on to His promises of hope... keep your focus on the LORD, and He is faithful.

For this I am grateful.

I have been needing time with my God... and being reassured of who I am through Christ, as well as whose I am because I chose to believe... I chose to trust... I chose to live for Christ. And daily, I choose to believe... I choose to trust... I choose to live for Christ.
