So sorry for that disappearing stunt I pulled..I know it has been ages since i wrote and I have been mentally writing stuff done and thinking that “Oh yes, this has to go on my blog”..but as it is, all those awesome thoughts and blog moments have been stored in the “spam” section of my brain.
I know this is going to sound so cliche but I have been away trying to figure “myself” out and what is expected of me. I think many-a-time as Christians we go into this limbo where we are essentially on auto-pilot and doing the most of nothing for our Christian walk. Some would argue that into grace, but I have come to learn that we really do need to pay an active role in our Christian walk.
Just this past week I had the pleasure of sitting down for coffee with my pastor and He really bought to light a lot of what was expected from me. Being born into this generation, we can so easily be drifted from our purpose and God given assignments and credit our drifting on things irrelevant to our call. What I really took away from our meet was that; opportunities will come and we will get involved in good things, but those small issues, how ever good they may seem, shouldn’t over-power or cause us to slack on what God has essentially called us to. God is not moved by our good intentions, but rather our willingness to yield to His will for our lives.
The will of God is not easy thing; believe me when I tell you that it soo difficult and sometimes painful to choose God. It doesn’t come easy.
Just last week I was a conversation with a beloved sister of mine and saying to her that the word we hear at church constrains us and demands a response from us. We cant un-hear what we have heard, so we are accountable to the words we have heard. We need to choose God. And in choosing God, I dont mean it abstractly, I mean it on a daily.
The friends we decide to keep, the people we argee to marry, the conversation we engage in, all the somewhat “little” dealings we have need us to clearly choose God. And sometimes ITS HARD…
From my heart,
Keep allowing yourselves to be lead by God. keep choosing God.. And you will reap life!!
Stay in His word, let not your commitment to His word weaver… Lock yourselves in His Word…The reward is great.
But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”- 1 Corinthians 2:9
