“Now honestly there are some times when I feel like God isn’t present w me. That He is letting me go through life w/o Him & He’s letting me deal w everything on my own. He hasn’t left you to deal w everything on your own, if anything He’s probably trying to bring you to something greater. It’s just like when you’re teaching a child to walk. First you’re not that far from them, you’re like 2 steps away from them and you say walk to me. You don’t stand there forever bc you want the child to learn to walk so everyday you go farther & farther away from the child so they can learn to reach out on their own so one day you won’t have to coach them & show them how to walk. That child might fall & it may hurt you but you know if you stand right in front of that child they aren’t going to ever learn how to walk on their own. It’s the same way w God, He may step back but He never leaves us. And even though He would love to always be right there in front of us, He knows that if He doesn’t challenge us or groom us w life’s trials we won’t ever come to fully be what He has called us to be. There may be a time when we don’t see God right in front of us, bc we keep falling down when we’re going though this walk but if we look forward, stay focused, & listen to His voice, & follow the voice that says “Walk to Me”, we will see that He never left us, He’s right there towards the end cheering us on. Whatever it is you’re going through, I know that you will overcome it. And when you do, the enemy is going to have to come much harder than that. Remember Romans 8:28 for I reckon that the present sufferings cannot be compared to the glory that is to be revealed to us. One of my favorite quotes is
“Lord you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed you most you would leave me alone.”
God replied, “My precious, precious man, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.”
A piece of advice I give my friends often, so I put it in my notes so I could just copy and paste it to them! Lol
“You can never separate God’s spirit from His faith. Ever. The enemy will do anything to convince you that God’s spirit has left you, that He is far from you. Especially when we sin, it’s easy for us to believe God is absent. Or like we can’t “feel” God like we used to. The devil knows what you are capable of through FAITH, bc remember you can’t seperate His spirit from His faith. So he will try to convince you that God has left you when he has not, he doesn’t want you to know that through faith, Gods spirit is always w you, he doesn’t want you to know how mighty you are and can be with the faith of God! He will never leave you Nor forsake you, so don’t believe the lie that God is not there.”
Brush my teeth, walk out the door
I forgot to thank you Lord
Sitting down for lunch, laughing at jokes w friends,
Didn’t bow & say amen
Dirty jokes but nonetheless it was all in good fun.
We talk and ya know Some is better than none..
Forget what they say no man can judge, only my beloved but
We’re distant acquaintances at the moment..
But I love you and you know it,
Ignore my stoic demeanor, my careless attitude
I’m still true to you
My Heavenly Father.
The world you created takes home on my shoulder blades,
Running back & forth, being pulled to here & there, do I go, do I stay
I’m busy and so are you, I know you are you’re holding the world too.
You made time for me throughout the day, I didn’t make time for you.
Take off my jacket, run the water for a shower
Still haven’t devoted even less than an hour.
Lay my head on the bed, anticipating rest for the night
Still Haven’t introduced my darkness to your light.
what if God was to sit you down w a box like a box that toys come in. On the top of that box is a list of everything that He equipped you with. On that list are things that you’ve never seen in yourself, things that you think you are incapable of, & some things that just simply scare you to death. But here it is God, your Heavenly Father laying it all out for you, & then He looks at you when He’s done & says “Wow, do I have some great things in store for you”.
Even when you don’t see it in yourself, you are capable of loving like He loves. Even when you think you aren’t equipped to forgive that person, you are. Even when the environment you’ve been placed in scares you to death, God has given you the victory. Even when you think your dream that keeps you up late at night is beyond your imagination, God knows He has equipped you to accomplish it w a snap of a finger.
Don’t be afraid of the power that’s inside of you w Christ Jesus, but embrace it, claim it, move mountains, & accept the victory that is already yours! you’re more than a conqueror. 💕 have a great day!
Jeremiah 9:24 But here is what the one who brags should boast about. He should brag that he has understanding and knows me. I want him to know that I am the Lord. No matter what I do on Earth, I am always kind, fair, and right. And I take delight in that.
I was featured on my friends blog as Poet of the Week! Beyond blessed and that really encouraged me this morning to keep on pushing! Just 6 months ago, my poetry was off limits to everyone. And now God is using it to bless people I could have never touched!! He’s just amazing like that! Her blog link is http://www.gloriousproverbs.weebly.com
I spent some time on her blog this morning just loving all the revelation she had to give! Magnificent!
